David O Markus broke the good news. 11TH Circuit upholds Judge Cooke's dismissal of one count against Ben Keuhene. The opinion is here. Lets hope this gives the prosecution the cover it needs to dismiss the rest of the charges
Our Judges at work and play: What exactly has caused this dustup of emails and internecine squabbling and cackling?
Here is part of the Judge Cueto email that started it all:
Harold Solomon. Tom Carney. Herb Klein. Tom Scott. Phil Knight. And perhaps the greatest of them all: Ed Cowart. It's hard to imagine those distinguished jurists engaging in this kind of petty behavior. The sad part is that most of these Judges, who couldn't hold a candle to those Judges, don't even know who those Judges were.
We received this email from a robed reader who asked us to print it but keep his/her identity a secret. *
"Rumpole, in the final analysis, this sums it all up: It's a sad day for the 11th Judicial Circuit when the Judges in Broward are laughing at us. And they are. See YOU in court. Your faithful robed reader."
