"The defense lawyers in the Robert Wone case are urging a D.C. Superior Court judge to dismiss obstruction and conspiracy charges, saying the government's evidence doesn’t support the allegations." The Blog of Legal Times, 6 November 2009.
     Lawyers for defendants in a case related to the murder of Radio Free Asia general counsel Robert Wone filed a motion to require prosecution to limit its case to conspiracy, evidence tampering and obstruction of justice. The Blog of Legal Times, 5 November 2009.
     Update: "Now a new fight has come up among the prosecutors and the defense lawyers: whether or not the presiding judge, Frederick Weisberg, should be allowed to stay on the case once the annual judicial calendars change at the start of the year. ... Lawyers for the three men charged in the Wone case—the defendants are Joseph Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky—say Weisberg should be allowed to continue to hear the case in the interest of judicial economy. ... Zaborsky, Ward and Price, a former Arent Fox partner in D.C., are charged with obstruction, conspiracy and evidence tampering. Wone, a former Covington & Burling associate who'd become general counsel for Radio Free Asia, was founded stabbed to death in Price and Zaborsky's home."
