Judy Clarke, San Diego's federal public defender, has the perfect job--if working nights and weekends and squabbling continually with lawyers sounds appealing. Clarke can't get enough of it. "I like to fight," she said. "And it's a hell of a fight as a defense lawyer. I love the action. I love the fight. I like the antagonism. I like the adversarial nature of the business.

The judicial process for Jared Lee Loughner, accused in the Tucson shooting rampage, promises to be a long and potentially convoluted one involving both federal and state prosecutions. Loughner's federal defense team, led by high-profile capital-defense lawyer Judy Clarke, will probably examine whether he has any defense other than insanity, and whether an insanity defense alone could keep him off death row, legal experts said. Clarke, a former head of the National Assn. of Criminal Defense Lawyers, is based in San Diego, and has represented Theodore Kaczynski, the Unabomber, who pleaded guilty by reason of insanity, and Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph.

Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski is no O.J. Simpson. If the Montana hermit were a rich celebrity, said one prospective juror in Kaczynski's murder-by-bombing trial, he could afford high-powered attorneys and wouldn't have to rely on a public defender. With "a public attorney," the possible juror told the court, "you're not getting as much support as if you would if you hired Johnnie Cochran, and I think that's a disadvantage."
