Source: Justice Dept. Unlikely to Retry Edwards

The Justice Department likely will not retry John Edwards after the campaign finance fraud case against him ended in a mistrial, the Associated Press reports based on comments from an unnamed "knowledgeable law enforcement official." In related news, the ABA Journal looks at media coverage suggesting the verdict was a blow to the department’s public integrity section, which has been trying to rebuild itself after the failed prosecution of Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens four years ago.
