Good Saturday morning. Today is September 11 and that is a day this country will not soon forget. The NY Times reports that one family of a man killed on one of the flights remains as a holdout, rejecting all settlement offers and seeking a trial as a way of exposing who was at fault among the airline and security companies.
The article quotes several experts opining that lawsuits are not a good way of finding out facts. What say you? If your brother was a passenger on one of the flights, and your goal was not money but finding out what occurred, would you insist on a trial?
College football is in full swing today. The Canes play Ohio State today and this will be a good early test. If the Canes can win in Ohio today, they will be in the mix for a bowl game this year.
There is a free legal seminar today at the Miami Shores Recreation Complex. The flyer is here.
10:00 AM to 2:00 PM during which Judges of the 11th Circuit will field questions on Dissolution Of Marriages, Drive Legal, Foreclosures, Small Claims. Hopefully there will be a few lawyers in attendance who can answer the questions.
Football troubles: Almost every home team is an underdog this week, and you will go broke quickly in this business taking road favourites and laying points. However, we are working through the problem and will have our picks up later.
Suicide Pool: Colby survives week one and has ten days to consider his second pick.
Michael Feiler, Marshall Dore Louis, and Memon all have taken the Fins on the road over the Bills.
Miguel De La Over , Nick Basso, and Plea D, Fake Blecher and 52nd Street Irwin all have the Titans at home over the Raiders
Michael Grieco has the Bucs and Markus has the Giants.
Fake Alex Michaels has the Patriots over the Bengals. That will probably be Rumpole's pick as well, although we really like the Ravens over the Jets in New Jersey.
