The City of Miami Beach Police Department has apparently come up with a new way of avoiding those pesky problems that come with pre-filing a new case: kill the defendant.
As reported HERE
by the Miami Herald a man died after a fight with Miami Beach Narcotics Detectives.
Q: How many City Of Miami Beach Detectives does it take to throw a defendant down a flight of stairs?
A: None. He fell.
See you in court, where if this trend continues, we could soon be out of clients.
Rumpole addresses the issue of the identity of those who make comments:
Let us take a brief moment and address and issue that has arisen in the comments section. One lawyer (one guess who) wants to sue another lawyer for comments allegedly made by that second lawyer about the first lawyer.
We have no way of knowing who makes a comment. Our only remedy is that if a comment is made and the person signs a name, and that person emails us and asks us to take down the comment because someone else signed their name to it, we will do it. But the mere fact a comment is signed is no proof whatsoever that the name associated with the comment was the actual person who made the comment.
That's clear isn't it? Sort of like the in field fly rule. (6.05(e): With less than two outs, and runners at first or second, or bases loaded, and a force play at third, if the batter hits a fly ball that is in the opinion of the umpire a catchable ball, the batter is automatically out.)
