p2pnet and Gigi Sohn on the overpopulation of Justice Dept by RIAA lawyers

Jon Newton of p2pnet discusses Gigi Sohn's observations about the large number of Jenner & Block lawyers who've been appointed to the Obama Administration's Justice Department. (To the best of my knowledge there are at least 6).

Given your comments on the standard( and standards! ) of RIAA lawyers, both here and on slashdot, does this mean we now have incompetent and dishonest lawyers helping run the government?

Just to note, in advance, that I appreciate the laws of libel may mean you need to moderate this post!
