Michigan: Feiger objects to A.G. picking a special counsel

The Detroit News reports: Geoffrey Fieger's lawyer said he is likely to challenge any special prosecutor that Attorney General Mike Cox appoints to continue the campaign finance investigation of the Southfield lawyer.

Other prosecutors who must recuse themselves do not pick their replacements, and neither should Cox, said Neil Rockind, one of Fieger's attorneys. ...

Cox is expected to name a special prosecutor to weigh whether Fieger broke the law last year by paying for an advertising blitz aimed at ousting state Supreme Court Justice Stephen Markman.

Cox has said he wants to turn the investigation over to someone else because he claims Fieger sought to blackmail him into dropping the investigation. -- Fieger lawyer expects battle over Cox pick-Fieger lawyer says state attorney general should recuse self from naming a special prosecutor.
