New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 14, 2007, New Braunfels, Texas � Sunday, January 14, 2007 -- Herald-Zeitung - Page 9A Attorney in lacrosse case asks for special prosecutor RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - As he aggressively pursued sexual assault charges against three Duke lacrosse players for nearly 10 months, Mike Nifong never wavered publicly in his commitment to take the oft-sensationalized case to trial. But facing ethics charges that could lead to his disbarment, the Durham County district attorney quietly asked to be removed from the case Friday - faxing a letter to the state attorney general asking for a special prosecutor to take over the case that is sure to define his nearly three-decade career. "His withdrawing from the case has nothing to do with how he feels about the merit of the case," Nifong's attorney, David Freedman, told The Associated Press. "He's disappointed he has to get out of the case. He likes to see things from beginning to end." What comes next in the troubled prosecution of Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans likely will be determined by the lawyer appointed by State Attorney General Roy Cooper. His office declined to comment Friday night, but a spokeswoman said officials would speak with reporters Saturday. "If he decides to take it, his staff is going to spend a significant amount of time to review the case files, interviewing the witnesses and making a determination on what is the proper process," said Peg Dorer, director of the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys. Dorer said that could take a month or more. Defense attorneys said they weren't worried about the prospect of such a delay, and instead cheered Nifong's decision to recuse himself. Sponsor leaves festival over decision to pull violent game SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A key sponsor has withdrawn from an alternative media festival and six video g^me makers have pulled their entries over organizers' rejection of a game depicting the Columbine High School massacre. Slamdance Film Festival co-founder and president Peter Baxter said organizers couldn't justify keeping "Super Columbine Massacre RPG!" in the competition. "I spoke to people who are still suffering very much from Columbine," Baxter said Friday. "Some things are more important man one game or a festival." The game, which can be downloaded off the Internet, has cartoon graphics and photos of Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold and some of their writings. Players take the place of Harris and Klebold, who killed 13 people and themselves in April 1999 at the school near Denver. The game's creator, Danny Ledonne of Alamosa in southern Colorado, said he was a sophomore in high school when the shootings took place. "I had the same kinds of issues in high school that the two shooters did and I just dealt with it differently, fortunately," he said Friday. Ledonne said he believed the game would spark serious discussion about the shootings, which were blamed in part on the teens' exposure to violent games. Baxter said the festival would add a discussion session this year about the game. the POWER of NEWSPAPERS IN EDUCATION The Herald-Zeitung would like to thank our Partners in Literacy for supporting our children and community through the Newspapers in Education program!
