Conflict of Interest

I don't know if one of my co-bloggers has mentioned it, but Jennifer Walters has a major conflict of Interest in representing Robbie Baldwin (Speedball). Baldwin has been charged with, among other things, violating the Super Human Registration Act by not registering. (Not that he could, being unconscious and all.) Any competent lawyer, as part of his defense, would attack the Act as unconstitutional. But Jen has not only supported the Act, but is assisting in enforcing it! That would seem to me to be prevent her from defending Baldwin or anyone else who is alleged not to have complied with the Act. There must be lawyers other than Walters who can defend him. Well, maybe not in the Marvel Universe. BTW, Jen has been representing Baldwin in issues of Frontline. She has been enforcing the Act in issues of her own book.
