THEY'RE DANCIN IN THE JURY ROOM
They're doing something called "Zumba" in the jury pool room this Friday (although on the commonly
used Gregorian calendar Friday is the 30th, not the 29th. But this is the REGJB, where time is relative, so we digress.)
Does Judge Joe Fernandez know about this hoe-down?
Didn't famed Miami filmmaker @Billycorben get in serious hot water (until rescued by everyone's favourite federal blogger) for doing less in the jury room? Can the Irish STOMP troupe be far behind?
Speaking of Twitter, @davidovalle305 took a vacation just when things were getting fun. But have you seen his replacement @annaedge4 and her tweets? She is covering the much discussed trial before Judge Tinkler-Mendez over the death of young Rilya Wilson and the motion for mistrial because the Dade SAO used a prosecutor who was under a Bar suspension at the time he gave his opening statement. Edgerton's article on the judge denying the motion for mistrial is here.
David- enjoy your vacation and google Wally Pipp while you have some time on your hands.
If you missed our post yesterday, there's a full compliment of trial prosecutors back at work in the Rilya Wilson case. They were down to two for a while.
So there you have it- they're dancing in the jury pool room and tap dancing before Judge Tinkler-Mendez. It's never boring at the REGJB.
See You In Court.
