What Would Nero Wolf and Archie Goodwin Charge for their Services?


How much and for what services should the state pay private investigators in capital cases?

The May 10th Willamette Week has a very interesting story about how the state is or is not paying for adequate legal defense services in capital cases, specifically in this case with defendant Ricardo Serrano. The WW blog posting’s comments have additional information.

May 11th postscript: If the information I received today is correct, the decision was made in this particular case to pay the private investigator standard rate.
