Down, Rover, Down!

November 1954
New Republic;11/1/54, Vol. 131 Issue 18, p8
The article focuses on a case filled against the judge, Luther W. Youngdahl, who was to preside over the perjury trial of Owen Lattimore. The Department of Justice was handed a stinging rebuke in its attempt to disqualify Youngdahl. Youngdahl disqualify himself in the face of an affidavit of bias and prejudice filed against him by the U.S. Attorney, Leo A. Rover. This sensational incident had its origins in Judge Youngdahl's opinion in 1953 outlawing four of the seven counts of the perjury indictment as unconstitutionally vague and indefinite. In objecting to Judge Youngdahl's continued participation in the case, Rover relied exclusively on certain statements made in the judge's 1953 opinion.
