Disregard for the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law was the mode of operation in the illegal railroading of Lyndon LaRouche, Jr. and his associates. Three judges, having heard evidence of prosecutorial misconduct, have strongly rebuked the government for its conduct in the LaRouche cases:
- In 1988, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Keeton of Boston found ``institutional and systemic prosecutorial misconduct'' during the federal trial of LaRouche and others in his court in Boston. [U.S. v. LaRouche, et al. (Memorandum and Order ``Emerson Hearing'' August 10, 1988, at p. 56).] That case ended in mistrial.
- In 1989, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin V.|B. Bostetter foudn that federal officials had acted in ``objective bad faith'' and by a ``constructive fraud on the court,'' when they illegally put three publishing companies into involuntary bankruptcy as part of the political prosecution of LaRouche and his associates. [In re Caucus Distributors, Inc. (E.D. Va. 1989) 106 B.R. 890.]
- In a Feb. 16, 1995 ruling vacating the convictions in a New York court of three associates of LaRouche, New York State Supreme Court Judge Stephen G. Crane found that the conduct of New York and federal government agents ``raises an inference of a conspiracy to lay low these defendants at any cost, both here and in Virginia.''
