AN INVITATION FROM JUDGE COOKE

An invitation from Judge Marcia Cooke arrived in our email inbox the other day. When emails arrive from federal judges we immediately start checking our bank balance to see if sufficient funds are available to hire Mr. Markus for defense. But not to worry, this email contained an invitation for a wonderful event.

EYE ON THE PRIZE: THE LEGAL JOURNEY OF CIVIL RIGHTS IN FLORIDA.

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2011, 4:00-6:00 PM AT THE WILKIE FERGUSON COURTHOUSE, 5TH FLOOR JURY ROOM.

We think its worth a trip just to check out the jury room.

The SCRIBD thing-a-ma-jig- below has the formal invitation.

Professor Chucky Ogletree from Harvahrd (motto: "don't bother applying, we won't let you in.") will be the moderator.

GUILTY. Just as the trialmaster predicted. Never let a jury separate for a long peroid if you can help it. Now he can spend the next 30 years rapping in federal prison..

Please address the madness that was the MJB this morning. The cops have taken over the parking lot (26), shutting the lawyers out, and the streets near the building were jammed.

I'll admit to knowing little of the facts of the Banton case, but rappers seem to have a propensity to ending up in prison. I wonder if it's because most, if not all, were drug dealers before they became rappers. Or maybe they're just being punished for making such miserable music, and I use that word loosely. Isn't street justice a wonderful thing?

be careful who you talk to on airplanes, and who you hire to defend you.

So the lesson of not letting a jury seperate is true!

If Buju is sentenced-- so much for the theory that celebrities are above the law.
