Barry Bonds: “obstruction of justice” trail peters out

“After more than a decade of wasted tax dollars in the name of ‘justice’ the government has officially dropped its case against the embattled slugger. [Last week] the federal government informed the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that it would not ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that reversed Bonds’ obstruction of justice conviction.” [The Legal Blitz/Above the Law RedLine; earlier on Barry Bonds]


  • Sorry to nitpick, but I think the headline should be “trial”, not “trail”.

  • It was intended as trail, as in trying to track a fugitive who has gotten away. Perhaps some other figure of speech would have served better.
