Obama Issues First Pardons Of His Presidency
by Dan Froomkin 12/3/10-- President Obama, who had gone nearly 700 days without using his clemency power, finally issued nine pardons on Friday afternoon to a very minor rogue's gallery of small-time felons who long ago did their time, if they did any at all.
Far from sending a message about the excesses and errors of the judicial system, Obama picked minor and sometimes ancient offenses -- such as a 1963 conviction for "mutilation of coins" -- to forgive. He also chose not to commute any sentences at all.

Kevin Cooper's Legal Team Expresses Disappointment and Vindication; Vows to Continue to Press for Clemency
SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reacting to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's failure to grant Kevin Cooper's clemency petition during his last day in office, Mr. Cooper's lawyers today expressed disappointment at the out-going governor's lack of action and his decision to forward Mr. Cooper's petition to incoming Governor Jerry Brown. But seeing partial vindication in this act, the team vowed to fight on. "Governor Schwarzenegger dodged this issue in the final hours of his governorship," said Norman Hile, lead attorney for Cooper. "We are disappointed, but there is still time to prevent the execution of an innocent man. Because the State of California is currently enjoined from executions using lethal injection, we will have an opportunity to take our case to incoming Governor Jerry Brown."
