Sequester is Slowing Down the Wheels of Justice

Amid all the talk of the effects of the sequester, the mainstream media has provided surprisingly little coverage of the sequester's effect on the federal justice system. Both the Department of Justice, which prosecutes federal criminal cases, and the Federal Defenders offices, which represent indigent defendant in federal criminal cases, have faced crippling cuts to their budgets. Both the DOJ and Federal Defenders have been forced to place valued attorneys and support staff on lengthy furloughs, until the budget crisis is solved.
