Duke Prosecutor's Replacement: Coman a Controversial Choice

A bit off topic, but I wanted to comment on the very recent replacement of Mike Nifong in the Duke case. Jim Coman, one of two prosecutors named to replace Nifong, seems a potentially controversial choice, given his 2004 statement supporting N.C. prosecutors who withheld impeachment evidence from the defense. This type of behavior is in direct conflict with Supreme Court rulings. (Impeachment evidence is evidence that would severely discredit a witness.)

Despite the fact that Coman later took back his comments, the very fact that he made them gives me concern and makes me wonder if it is possible that justice will be served in this case.

Is something rotten in this state or what?

Check out this article on Coman from December, 2004 from the Raleigh News & Observer.
