3. ABA Journal: New Acting AG Named = Big Tobacco & Keisler's $120M political interference
New Acting AG Named
Sep 17, 2007, By Debra Cassens Weiss
http://www.abajournal.com/news/new_acting_ag_named /

President Bushs announcement that he was nominating Michael B. Mukasey to become attorney general was not the surprising part .... More surprising was Bushs announcement that Peter Keisler ... was taking over as acting attorney general.

.....

Keisler oversaw litigation over the rights of Guantanamo Bay detainees and approved a decision to reduce the amount sought in the governments suit against tobacco companies from $130 million to $10 million, ABAJournal.com noted in an earlier post (http://www.abajournal.com/news/another_doj_official_res... ). The tobacco decision prompted the lead attorney on the suit to resign and complain of political interference.
