Rahway NJ Obituaries and Death Notices

Frederick B. Lacey, Who Prosecuted Corruption in New Jersey, Dies at 96 - New York Times

Monday, May 01, 2017

Mr. Lacey also served as a councilman in his hometown, Glen Ridge, N.J.As a partner at Shanley & Fisher, a New Jersey firm, he was a pro bono counsel for a Rahway State Prison inmate who claimed that he was being unconstitutionally denied wages for prison work. Mr. Lacey successfully argued the case before the United States Supreme Court.On Senator Clifford P. Case’s recommendation, Mr. Lacey was appointed a federal prosecutor in 1969 and served until 1971, when President Richard M. Nixon named him to the federal bench. He retired in 1986 and joined what was then known as LeBoeuf, Lamb, Leiby & MacRae, a law firm headquartered in New York.Although he was a Republican, Mr. Lacey was under consideration in 1979 for the post of deputy attorney general in the Carter administration, but he withdrew after critics complained that as a judge he had been predisposed toward the prosecution.Among those critics was the Harvard law professor Alan M. Dershowitz, who called Judge Lacey “extraordinarily competent” but added, “He has no sense of fair-mindedness.”Judge Lacey was named that same year to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which considers government eavesdropping applications.As a prosecutor Mr. Lacey was best known for battling mob bosses, among them Angelo DeCarlo, who was known as Gyp, and Ruggiero Boiardo, who was known as Richie the Boot.“What was only speculation when I last was here is now established,” he said on returning to the prosecutor’s office in 1969. “There is such a phenomenon as organized crime. Call it the Mafia, call it Cosa Nostra, call it Organized Crime, it exists.”Mr. Lacey fought to release hundreds of pages of transcripts of F.B.I. wiretaps to demonstrate the mob’s reach. (In one, Mr. DeCarlo was overheard urging support for Mr. Addonizio’s political career, saying, “He’ll give us the city.”)“Organized crime is, in the vernacular, taking us over,” Mr. Lacey warned.The Times wrote that the tapes “surpassed the disclosures made in 1963 before a Senate committee by Joseph M. Valachi, the deserter from the Mafia,” and that by corralling the bosses and detailing the mob’s superstructure, Mr. Lacey and his team had succeeded in outlining “the most complete network of crime and official corruption that has yet to be brought to trial in an American courtroom.”As a prosecutor Mr. Lacey was notably evenhanded when he searched for talent. Among the last cases he handled in private practice before becoming the federal prosecutor was the bribery trial of an oil company executive whom he was defending as part of a legal dream team of Edward Bennett Williams and Simon H. Rifkind.The executive was convicted, thanks to a young Justice Department prosecutor, Herbert J. Stern. Mr. Lacey’s first appointment as a United States attorney was to hire Mr. Stern as his chief assistant.Correction: April 12, 2017An earlier version of this obituary misspelled the surname of a former mayor of Jersey City who was prosecuted by Mr. Lacey. He was Thomas J. Whel...
