Jon Vilma lawyer takes NFL's outside counsel to task

Peter Ginsberg, LB Jonathan Vilma's lawyer, on NFL-hired outside counsel Mary Jo White's comments on the bounty evidence: “I'm actually very disappointed. When Mary Jo White was the U.S. Attorney in the eastern district of New York, I worked for her and know her quite well. Back in those days, Mary Jo would have never believed that for an accused to ask for evidence and to have a fair forum for defending his or her rights was a ‘red herring.' But now that she's been hired by the Commissioner and sitting in a significant law firm instead of a department of justice office, she apparently seems to be backing up the Commissioner that we don't have the right to know exactly what it is we're being accused of or have a right to face the people who are accusing Jonathan.”
