Harvey Updyke's lawyer wants off the case

The country's most famous tree-killer, Harvey Updyke, may have to find himself a new lawyer. When Updyke was arrested for poisoning the trees at Auburn's Toomer's Corner the court appointed him a lawyer, Phillip O. Tyler. Well, Tyler doesn't really want to handle the case and he's filed a motion to remove himself from it.

Why? Well, Tyler's current law firm represents Auburn, and he's a part-time professor at the school. He also lives in Auburn and is a fan, saying that he has "numerous personal and family ties to Auburn University."

Which would be what we in the business call a "conflict of interest." I can only imagine the type of defense a lawyer from Auburn would craft for an Alabama fan who may have destroyed Toomer's Corner. It would probably be something along the lines of standing in front of the jury and screaming "He did it! He killed the trees! I urge you to sentence him to death!"

Which would likely please the Auburn fan base, but it wouldn't reflect too kindly on the American judicial system.

jd1973-civil war bores me.
As for WW2-FDR did not want to enter the war-but pearl harbor forced his hand as we all know-or at least i would hope you know.

How about the Civil War caused by Abraham Lincoln or WWII caused by FDR. Are those newsworthy? Stupid Ronald Reagan should have stopped the Challenger from exploding.

Nice retort, 'moviking80'.  Once again, you not only prove your mind numbing, dense stupidity, but your utter incapability to offer even the hint of a creative insult.  If you really need to shock someone with your witless putdowns, why don't you try the 'Sesame Street' website where your mental feebleness might be more of a novelty.

atlantaMB-Im not trying to get into a political verbal smack down with you-just being a little sarcastic today-except in regards to boots still being in iraq and afganistan i was being serious about that.

As for George "W" Bush- I wont say much postive about the man-BUT ANYONE IS a upgrade over obama.
