Former ASA David Ranck had his federal lawsuit against the SAO dismissed at the summary judgment stage by Judge Gold. David Markus has all the details here,
including a link to the Herald story. Those of you wishing to do so can email David at davidrancklaw at aol dot com. ( We have to write the email address that way or it screws up the layout of the blog but you should understand what we mean.)
DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.
If you haven't gone to ATL and seen all the sordid details of a client, his wife, and a Case and White associate, go here and here. Even for Miami, that's an awful lot of sex going on.
Moral of the story- we as criminal lawyers are a lot more accustomed to covering our tracks than these dopy civil guys who apparently leave footprints, hand prints, and blackberry email and text messages everywhere so that any aggrieved husband can connect the dots.
Still lots of chatter on the Donte Stallworth case in the REGJB today.
Query: does the sentence the SAO agreed to in one case affect the sentences the SAO should be seeking in similar cases?
It's an interesting issue. On the one had we decry the guidelines, especially in federal court. On the other hand, when someone gets a good deal (for whatever reason) people start complaining.
We fall squarely on the side of every case is different; every person is different; and every case should be handled on the specific individual facts associated with that case.
