By completing the transfer of this evidence to the anti-doping agency, the government managed to extricate itself from a bind: how to get evidence, whose secrecy is normally guarded, into the hands of those who have the power to use the information to bar athletes from competing in the Olympics.

But the action stands in contrast to the administration's vigorous defense of executive secrecy in other forums, and to a longer Justice Department tradition of staunchly resisting Congressional demands for information about prosecutions that have not yet gone to trial.

"This is the kind of stuff that, traditionally, was extracted, if at all, only after a protracted, highly public fight," said Charles Tiefer, a professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law and the author of "Congressional Practice and Procedure."

ABA Group Sets Up Resource Web Site Encouraging 'Unbundled' Legal Services
The ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services April 14 announced that it has created a Web site dedicated to helping lawyers as well as state and local policymakers get a better handle on the rising phenomenon of "unbundling" legal services and assisted pro se representation.

The online resource contains links to articles, books, reports, cases, court rules, state projects, and ethics opinions addressing the issues that crop up when lawyers agree to perform limited tasks in a representation.

The Web site also links to a guide on providing limited-scope representation, which was prepared in conjunction with a task force of the ABA Litigation Section.
