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

Monday, May 01, 2017

International Brotherhood of Teamsters, ousting Barry Feinstein in 1993 as president of Local 237, which represents New York City employees.He was also named to monitor Bristol-Myers Squibb after an accounting scandal and was a court-appointed special master to remap New York’s congressional and legislative districts in 1992 and 2002 when proposals by state legislators had been found wanting.As an independent counsel appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr in 1992, Mr. Lacey found, to the dismay of Democrats, no evidence that the Justice Department under President George Bush had bungled an investigation into loans by an Atlanta branch of the Italian Banca Nazionale del Lavoro to help arm Saddam Hussein in Iraq’s war with Iran. A Senate committee blamed bureaucracy and errors of judgment for the flawed investigation rather than an overt cover-up.Frederick Bernard Lacey was born on Sept. 8, 1920, in Newark to Frederick R. Lacey, a Newark police chief, and the former Mary Armstrong. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers in 1941, served in the Navy as a lieutenant commander during World War II, and graduated from Cornell Law School.He married the former Mary Stoneham, who died in 2005. In addition to their son John, he is survived by their three other sons, Fred Jr., Jim and Bob; three daughters, Virginia Field, Mary Pat McCann and Kathleen Albert; 22 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.While working as an assistant prosecutor in the mid-1950s 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,...
