We're in our Nation's Capital for the 21st running of the Susan G. Kormen Global Race for the Cure® where according to Mike Allen's Playbook post, over 41,000 people will participate, including 3,500 cancer survivors, and many from South Florida's legal community, possibly including you know who.
Today is Saturday June 5, 2010- 66 years ago today President Roosevelt addressed the nation to announce the liberation of Rome by allied forces. Meanwhile huddled in a bunker in England, Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D Eisenhower was giving the final go ahead for the invasion of France, which commenced with airborne troops parachuting behind Nazi lines on the night of June 5, 1944.
As we face an unprecedented ecological threat to our nation, we need a little bit more of the leadership and old fashion American "can do" spirit that saved the world in 1944.
After our post yesterday, it's amazing how many robed readers and their supporters privately emailed us to let us know that THEIR nickname was "The Terminator" based on how many cases they could close, and that we blew it yesterday with our post. This issue bears more investigation so......we'll be baaaack!!
On Monday the Supreme Court will issue the final decisions for cases argued during the 2009-2010 term. Monday will also mark the official end of Justice John Paul Stevens 35 years of service on the court. Whatever the future makeup of the court, our nation and our legal community was blessed to have a man of such integrity, intellect and dedication serve.
The SCOTUS blog will have breaking coverage of the decisions on Monday as they are announced.
From a man of dedication and integrity to a man with none: Scott Rothstein is due to be sentenced by Federal District Court Judge "Gentleman" James Cohn on July 2.
Here is Rothstein's letter of apology to Judge Cohn, courtesy of Bob Norman's Daily Pulp.
Norman broke the Rothstein story and remains the "go-to"journalist on all matters Rothstein.
DCJ POLL RESULTS:
47% of readers want the policy at the jail to return to the way it was- any attorney can see any inmate at any time.
15% of you like the new policy, while 14% of you want it to be open season only on PD clients.
31% of readers want Judge Adrien stationed outside the jail so that he can personally review requests to see inmates on a case by case basis.
And for those of you counting at home, the poll allowed readers to select more than one answer, meaning that the entire enterprise is statistically flawed and was done for entertainment purposes only.
See You In Court (yes, we'll be back by Monday).
