Rory Little, Ninth Circuit judicial aspirant and professor of law at U.C. Hastings. Professor Little was appointed special prosecutor in the matter of In Re Girardi by Chief Judge Alex Kozinski. Prior to entering academia, Professor Little served as a federal prosecutor for the Organized Crime and Racketeering Strike Force, prosecuting cases of labor racketeering, money-laundering, narcotics and other organized criminal activity.

Judge William Fletcher, a member of the Ninth Circuit panel that adjudicated the matter of In re Girardi, 08-80090, rejected the lenient recommendations of Rory Little. He stated: "with any competent lawyer if you're omitting part of a document, that is not accidental. That is intentional." The court adjudicated that the grave misconduct by Walter Lack and Thomas Girardi included "the persistent use of known falsehoods," and that the "false representations" were made "knowingly, intentionally, and recklessly" during years of litigation.
