Anyone who is a fan of Duke lacrosse or Rule 8.4 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, will not be despondent over the news that Michael Byron Nifong, former district attorney for Durham County, NC, has filed for bankruptcy. Mr. Nifong lists his total assets at $243,898 and total liabilities at $180,311,978. That is not good.
But, he still has his license to practice law and a 2003 Honda Accord EX. Wait, he had his license to practice law revoked by the North Carolina State Bar. Well he still has the Accord and it is an EX which is better than the LX. So he has that going for him.
