"The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the kid, the calf and yearling with the lion, and a little child shall lead them." Isaiah 11:6.
Several aspiring bloggers sent us that quote when the news broke last week that the League of Prosecutors would be joining forces with the FACDL to challenge the Limited Registry system.
This is the LOP's motion to file an Amicus Brief in the case before the 3rd DCA.
Amended Motion for Leave to File Amicus Curiae Brief
DOM never surrenders.
You need to check out this post on South Florida Lawyers last week on DOM's petition to the United States Supreme Court to review and reverse the 11th Circuit's very disappointing opinion in the Shaygan case. To refresh your memory, the Feds prosecuted Dr. Shaygan, threatened him and Mr. Markus if they didn't plea, sent snitches to try and get Mr. Markus to improperly get witnesses to change their testimony, and then didn't tell anyone what they did until Mr. Markus uncovered it during cross. Judge Gold hit the roof, sanctioned the prosecutors and the US Attorneys Office and awarded 600K in costs for a frivolous prosecution. Among other things, Dr. Shaygan was innocent, which is why the feds are so peeved off that he was acquitted. As we know, their unofficial motto is "Anyone can convict the guilty, but it takes a really good prosecutor to....." well, you know the rest.
The 11th circuit undid most of Gold's order in a very strange and extremely disappointing opinion. DOM with some Amicus briefs, now seeks the Supremes to remedy the whole situation.
Final Results: In our informal, unscientific poll:
State Attorney KFR: 406: 53%
Rod Vereen: 352: 46%
The start of another long, hot week.
