We can't let this go. It's hard to imagine most of our readers passed the Bar. If you read the comments section from the last post, you will see speculation on who the young woman was referenced in our post. Most thought it was a prosecutor. Then we wrote that there was nothing in the post to confirm she was a prosecutor. Then someone wondered if she wasn't a prosecutor what could she be?
Counsel for the co-defendant?
Come on people. Think just a little tiny bit outside the box.
It's all over the FACDL Listserv that great criminal defense attorney Roy Kahn tore it up in trial in civil court and got a 3.25 million dollar verdict.
Roy, can you spare a dime?
Our FACDL spy says the following things are in the works:
1) The clerk's office will now accept checks and debit cards for payments. For a brief moment the clerk's office decided to only accept coin as payment and then only quarters and nickels minted 2009 or beyond and then only from the Denver mint.
2) Security pass: Regular working private defense attorney Joes and Janes will be able to join their brethren from the SAO, PDs, and Regional Counsel (RC?) and bypass the security and walk in the side door.
Register us as completely 100% against this idea. Everyone, and we mean everyone including Judges and Bailiffs should have to go through screening. Otherwise the building turns into a sieve.
The security of an area is directly related to the square of the number of people who can bypass screenings.* With what will now be 100s of people not being screened as they enter, the chances of their being an "incident" of some sort is now much more likely than not.
See You In Court.
