20 Years Since Prosecution Rested in Douglas Impeachment Trial

20 Years Since Prosecution Rested in Douglas Impeachment Trial

It has been 20 years since the prosecution rested in the impeachment trial of former Nebraska Attorney General Paul Douglas. A story that originally ran in The New York Times in March 1984 recounts what happened.

After a relatively short trial, the State Supreme Court rejected Mr. Douglas' pleas for acquittal and case dismissal. In reference to Attorney David Domina, who was investigating Mr. Douglas in relation to the Commonwealth Savings Co. collapse, this article recounts the testimony he gave before the Supreme Court. Mr. Domina recounted various business transactions between Douglas and Commonwealth Savings. The defense attorney strongly objected to Domina's transaction charts being used as evidence, but they were admitted.
