Barbara LaWall loses Kumari Fulbright case to State AG

The Pima County Attorney's Office is forced to turn over yet another high profile case. First the Stidham murder trial, now Kumari Fulbright. From the Daily Star:

The County Attorney's Office decided to turn over the case [to the Attorney General] after learning that a part-time law clerk within the office is a close friend of Fulbright's and that she had spoken with Fulbright after her arrest, [Chief Criminal Deputy David] Berkman said.
Although the conversation took place before the case was presented to the County Attorney's Office by the Tucson Police Department, Berkman said, "We just thought it was best to let the Attorney General's Office deal with it."

When will Barbara LaWall get her Mike Nifong moment?

this is more of a reverse-nifong moment, wouldn't you say?

When I say "Nifong moment" I'm thinking, "big, sexy, criminal case ripe for exploitation by media-hungry prosecutor", which doesn't necessarily imply all the scurrilous ethical violations employed by Mr. Nifong.

Mike Nifong got his Nifong moment but then blew it, if you catch my meaning.
