And now....another episode of Rumpole's Famous "YOU DA MAN" awards.
The Scene: A dark and crowded courtroom in Federal Court in Miami.
Dramatis Personae: A bunch of fed prosecutors swirling around acting obnoxious and cocky; Judge William Dimitrouleas a/k/a Judge D of the infamous Rocket-Docket;
Defense Attorneys Phil Horowitz, Alan Kaufman, John Wylie, and our own REGJB trained Brian Tannebaum.
The Charge: BEING A STRAW BUYER!!!!!!!!! dum da dum dum!!!!!!!!!
THE TRIAL: Lasted 11 grueling days.
BUT FIRST: We have been invited to be a guest blogger on David O Markus's blog, thus placing his reputation and possibly his license to practice law at risk. But never fear DOM, we will treat your blog with respect.
We're thinking of starting with this:
"A priest, a rabbi, President Obama and (insert your favourite) Federal Judge walk into a Bar (Tobbacco road) AND........" (you'll have to check out David's blog this upcoming week for the conclusion of the story.)
THE VERDICT .....NOT GUILTY ALL COUNTS. WALK OUT OF THE DOOR.
And for that wonderful accomplishment, we hereby say to
Phil Horowitz......YOU DA MAN!!!!!!
Alan Kaufman....YOU DA MAN!!!!
John Wylie.....YOU DA MAN!!!!!!!
Brian Tannebaum......YOU DA MAN!!!!!!!
and hat tip to our favourite federal blogger being on top of the breaking story and posting it just as he was scurrying to get out of town for a well deserved vacation.
