UPDATE: More Mr. Markus. John Pacenti's rant about the prosecutorial misconduct in USA v. Dr. Shaygan. Check it out here.
The courthouse was all a-twitter about the tweeting of film maker nee juror Billy Corben, who found the courthouse food and wi-fi not up to Hollywood standards
Note to BC: try the salmon carpaccio with the leek salad and Oregon Chardonnay which
is served on Thursdays only. Until then....spare us your
While not social-media savvy, Corben can pick his lawyer when he needs one, and he made the right call by hiring everyone's favourite federal blogger. The rule to show cause was dismissed today.
The Herald's coverage is here.
Mr. Markus was so impressed with Judge Joe Fernandez that he was moved to ("tweet") say this:
"If we were allowed to friend judges on Facebook, Judge Fernandez would be the first one.”
Rumpole notes: we don't "friend" but we do Tweet.
