New Jersey's most infamous defender of drug lords, gang members, and pimps, Paul Bergrin, was back in Newark federal court on Tuesday and facing a laundry list of charges from drug trafficking to racketeering. The man dubbed by New York magazine as "the baddest lawyer in the history of New Jersey" is on trial for the second time, after a hung jury failed to convict him in November 2011, Reuters reports.
