Claiborne that he was framed by vindictive prosecutors bent on destroying him. The panel headed by Sen. Charles McC.

Former federal Judge Harry Claiborne has suffered enough at the hands of the federal government and should be allowed to practice law, the Nevada Supreme Court said Wednesday. 'Questionable . . . Motivations' Claiborne, 70, was a victim of "questionable investigative and prosecutorial motivations" by the federal government, which convicted him of two counts of filing false tax returns, the court said.
