BREAKING: NOT GUILTY!!!! CONGRATS TO BILL MATTHEWMAN AND AL MILIAN.
Of course ace reporter David Ovalle was on top of the verdict. His report is here.
The United States Center For Disease Control has seen fit to issue this official statement:
“CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms),” agency spokesman David Daigle told The Huffington Post.
Lets take a quick look at some other governmental denials:
The 37th President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon: "I am not a crook."
The 42nd President of the United States, William J. Clinton: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."
The 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush: "Iraq has weapons of mass destruction." (Technically not a denial, but a trillion dollar whopper of a lie.)
"There was no conspiracy to kill the president." The Warren Commission.
Elvis Presley is dead.

JUDICIAL CANDIDATES FORUM
Speaking of Zombies, don't forget the Judicial Candidates Forum Wednesday night MDCC Wolfson Campus:
Miami Dade Judicial Candidates Forum 2012
If all goes as planned, by the time you read this, the jury will be out in the Kaufman-Aventura-was she murdered or did she pass out? jury trial. Stay tuned.
UPDATE:Captan reports jury went out at 9:55 am.
Super reporter David Ovalle reported here that the deceased's mother (who testified for the defense) got into it with the prosecutor, in front of the jury, during rebuttal argument. Rumpole practice tip: try not to pick a fight with your victim's next of kin in front of the jury.
A PORSCHE AND A PLEA:
Don't miss DOM's coverage of two hucksters who ripped a client for over a quarter million dollars of cash, cars, jewelry and a condo for a plea and then didn't even bother to help the client on the Rule 35 (or 5K.1) sentence reduction. Shocking.
Please stay in touch with the FACDL leadership and write your own letter to Judge Brown explaining why you will not participate in the Limited Registry. By refusing to lower our standards and compromise our clients, we can defeat this law.
See You In Court.
