The Duke lacrosse "rape" case

For those who haven't been following the Duke "rape" case, here is a good overview by Power Line:
Yesterday, Stuart Taylor spoke to the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Federalist Society about the Duke lacrosse "rape" case. In my view, Taylor is probably the pre-eminent reporter of legal/political matters, an enterprise to which he brings to bear great intelligence, strong knowledge of the law, and stubborn fair-mindedness.
Along with K.C. Johnson, he has written Until Proven Innocent, Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case. Today, he provided an overview of this wretched affair which, in essence, was the product of three rotten forces -- a corrupt prosecutor, a rotten academic institution, and the liberal MSM.
Do read the whole thing. The Weekly Standard also published an interesting essay on this travesty in January 2007.
And here is a hilarious video of Amy Poehler spoofing Nancy Grace on Saturday Night Live:
