Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in the November 2 issue of The New York Times in an article regarding the corruption investigation of Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons. Mr. Lowell, Gibbons' lawyer during the investigation, indicated that the investigation has been closed and that his client will not be charged. "Neither the governor nor I have any problem with the Justice Department having to investigate allegations, even if they are crazy, because he is a high-ranking public official and he knows the world he lives in. They handled it in a way and a speed that was up to them. Though we wish it were sooner, they came to the right conclusion," he said.
