Francois Hollande was elected president of France Sunday, becoming the nation's first socialist president since Francois Mitterand was elected in 1981.
Hollande ascends to the French Presidency having never held elective office. In 2007 his partner and mother of his four children- Segeolene Royal lost to Nicolas Sarkozy. Hollande endured a scandal- an affair with French journalist Valerie Trierweiler, who remains his main squeeze.
President Sarkozy becomes the first French President not to be reelected since Valery Giscard d'Estaing lost to Mitterand.
BIG MURDER TRIAL TO START MONDAY.
Want to see one of the very best criminal defense attorneys in action, for perhaps the last time? Then head over to Judge Bronwyn Miller's courtroom and watch Bill Matthewman defend Aventura developer Adam Kaufman who is charged with the second degree murder of his wife. (This may be Matthewman's last trial before he becomes a Federal Magistrate.)
ASA Joe Mansfield for the prosecution.
Dr. Bruce Hyma will be under the gun as it were, as a major part of the defense is the cause of death.
If you see one of the attorneys during the break, maybe one of them will comment on this entry in the court docket sheet- we have never seen this before:
ORDER: AGREED ORDER AUTHORIZING DEFT ADAM KAUFMAN TO WORKOUT
Does that include pilates, or just free weights?
Enjoy the week.
