From afar we know that the world of a high profile legal blogger must look glamourous, what with the fame, private jets, South Beach nightclubs and exotic sports cars. 

But there is also the mundane nuts and blots blogging that makes our blog an indispensable part of life in the REGJB. 

And with that we bring you news about your expired Courthouse IDs:

Dear Membership:

I am pleased to announce that the new courthouse IDs are ready to be picked up as of this morning. If you already have an ID your new card will be available for pick-up Monday through Thursday, between the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  at our AOC Human Resources office; located in Courthouse Center—27th floor. Please be sure to bring your current ID with you as the HR staff at AOC will be collecting the old ones prior to handing over the new one. Also, the current cards will expire on May 16th. This means that you have just over a month to get over to Courthouse Center to pick up your new card. As of May 17th that card you now have will be invalid

If you have never had an ID card and would like to get one there will be a new application that will be circulated hopefully by this time next week. I will be sure to forward it to all the membership as soon as I receive it from AOC.  

Thank you again to Judge Soto, Judge Slom, Betty Llorente, Eddie Pereira, and all of AOC for putting in the time and effort to make this program work. 

Jude M. Faccidomo, Esquire
FACDL-Miami, President

Go get your new card, skip the line and we will see you in court.

Give attorney's a free pass to get into the criminal courthouse?! That's insane! Those are the people I WANT SCREENED! All of us are crazy! Just look at the career choice!

That's always been our position but no one consults us. And don't get us started on judges not being screened. Talk about a group of unbalenced individuals ...

Shouldn't they be screened before they're Judges? Never mind, that'll never happen.

Consider the discrete random variables, all taking values in the set of door numbers :
C: the number of the door hiding the Car,
S: the number of the door Selected by the player, and
H: the number of the door opened by the Host.
Then, if the player initially selects door 1, and the host opens door 3, the probability of winning by switching is

as due to the random placement of the car and the independence of the initial choice of the player and the placement of the car:

and due to the host's behaviour:

Note what happens in the big displayed formula for if we replace C=2 throughout with C=1 and with C=3, in turn. The summation in the denominator of the right hand side does not change. The second term in the numerator, gets changed in the obvious way, but in all three cases it remains equal to 1/3. Thus the three probabilities , for c=1,2 and 3, are proportional to the three probabilities , c=1,2 and 3, which as we just saw are equal to 1/2, 1 and 0. Since the three probabilities have to add to one, they must be equal to 1/3, 2/3 and 0 (same proportions as 1/2, 1, 0, but correct total 1).
This corresponds to the use of Bayes' formula in its formulation for probabilities, rather than odds, to which we now turn.
