Julius Caesar, Act 1, scene 2.
DOM posted the link to watch HRH Roy Black in trial live in West Palm. The link is here.
Fed prosecutors tuning in have been confused: they can't understand why a case agent is not sitting at the prosecutor's table. "Prosecutors try cases by themselves in State Court? The next thing you know State courts won't punish defendants for testifying and losing."
When we last left Attorney Ira Still III shortly after his motion for attorneys fees was argued in Broweird, Judge Matthew "Money Ball" Destry had awarded Mr. Still a total of $20,000.00 for two cases that he tried and won. Mr. Still was seeking about $110,000.00.
Still filed a petition for writ of certiorari and the 4th DCA granted it here; vacated the trial court's order, and remanded the case for proceedings consistent with paying Mr. Still more than $13.00 per hour.
A Rumpolian "Well Done" Mr. Still. Well done indeed.
