Yes, really. If you ever discuss DOJ with an current or former DOJ attorney, they're going to think "main justice" as either the front office or at least the offices within the main building. Using "main justice" in the broad sense to a DOJ attorney would be like asking a law firm transactional attorney about "corporate law." Their thought would be "what kind of corporate law? cap markets, m&a, securities, etc."
Well yes, it was all current and former DOJ attorneys who referred to main justice in the way I indicated.
But I apologize for derailing the thread and will now bow out!
