I crossed paths with attorney Lynne Stewart last fall after her indictment on terrorism-related charges. I wrote about the experience in “Face to face with Lynne Stewart.” The government’s case against Stewart and her codefendants is based largely on transcripts of wiretapped or otherwise recorded conversations.
