    Judge throws out racketeering convictions BY ANTHONY M. DESTEFANO, New York Newsday
    'We feel an injustice has been corrected,' attorney Dino Lombardi said Friday about the ruling. Lombardi represented Forde at trial.

    Lombardi said jurors, despite saying they could be fair, clearly had anti-union bias.

    'You have these one-dimensional cartoonish impressions of trade union guys,' Lombardi said of the juror bias.
