The Law Is A Ass #447: Daredevil’s An Entrapment Keeper

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    How much control does the Mayor’s office actually have over the DA? A normal mayor, not a crime boss mayor who could heavily imply he’d send Bullseye after you if you don’t comply with his demands, which is probably what Matt’s boss is more afraid of.

      I honestly don’t know. I assume it varies from city to city, depending on each city’s charter.

        One issue is whether or not the DA is independently elected, as a mayor can’t fire an elected official. In New York, not only are there elections for DA, there are FIVE of them– one for each borough.
