Law Journal Names Alberto Gonzales "Lawyer Of The Year"

Posted: Updated:

Negative news coverage might have cost Alberto Gonzales his job as attorney general, but it won him a dubious honor yesterday from a magazine published by the American Bar Association: Lawyer of the Year.

Additionally, the ABA Journal named Gonzales' successor, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, its top lawyer for 2008 - mostly in anticipation of how often he'll be in the spotlight for trying to repair the beleaguered Justice Department.
