From the letter dated October 18, 2007 (hot of the presses; you’ve got to admire our sources)
“Dear Mr. George:
In response to your inquiry about funding for facilities, security, and operating expenses for the Regional Counsel Office in Miami, the FY 2007-2008 Adopted Budget does not include funding for a facility and/or operating expenses for such an office.
The letter references FACDL v. Florida Governor Charlie Crist et.al., SC07-01744 and concludes rather rudely:
“While the lawsuit is pending, we do not intend to consider funding for facilities and other expenses related to the Regional Conflict Counsel’s Office in Miami”
Rumpole says: Welcome to Miami. Now leave.
We continue to side with the strategy of slowly suffocating Mr. George and his Rockettes. We don’t want his office in Miami, we think clients will be poorly served by an office that is waiting for law students to pass the bar so they can handle capital litigation against Mr. Laeser and his prosecutors in the division formerly known as “Major Crimes”.
