charles stimson charles d stimson.jpgWe were wrong in speculating that the parties had decided to use Friday afternoon to quietly settle Charney v. Sullivan & Cromwell. As it turns out, S&C has actually opened up a new front in that war. How exciting!
But we were absolutely right in observing that “[w]hen a disgraced Washington political figure wants to resign, they wait until Friday after 3 PM.” Look at what the cat dragged in, at 4:05 PM: Charles “Cully” Stimson, the Pentagon official who made controversial remarks about lawyers who represent terrorism suspects.
Stimson didn’t last very long as deputy assistant secretary of defense for detainee affairs. But at least his tenure was longer than that of Jack Scheich as president of LeGal.
