TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (151)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of The Smoking Gun (from Tuesday, January 15; link good at time of posting):
Disgraced and disbarred, Mike Nifong is now bankrupt. The former North Carolina prosecutor, whose career imploded with his botched handling of the Duke University rape case, today filed for bankruptcy, listing liabilities in excess of $180 million.

. . . .

Almost all of that sum represents legal claims filed against the former Durham County district attorney by members of Duke's 2006 lacrosse team, including the three players who were accused of raping a stripper at a team party.

. . . .

He lists nearly $5000 monthly in pension or retirement income and describes himself, charitably, as retired.
