Stevens Officially Off the Hook

April 7, 2009 8:09 a.m.

The judge presiding over former Sen. Ted Stevens’ case formally dismissed the charges against Stevens this morning, but not before taking another bite out of the hide of DOJ prosecutors.

Late Update: The judge did more than just rip on prosecutors, as initial reports suggested. He launched criminal contempt proceedings against the Justice Department lawyers who were originally on the case (and who were eventually yanked off the case by Attorney General Eric Holder).
