ON NOVEMBER 13TH FELIX UNGER WAS ASKED TO REMOVE HIMSELF FROM HIS PLACE OF RESIDENCE...

First of all, yesterday was 11/12/13 for those of you that follow those things. We had a good day, about about you? Next up: next December's 12/13/14. 

In answer to our trivia question yesterday...."On November 13th, Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife...."
 

In our humble opinion, the best sitcom ever. 

SCOTT ROTHSTEIN FALL OUT CONTINUES:
Yesterday  Federal Judge Robin Rosenbaum (motto: "Atlanta or bust") sentenced Kim Rothstein, wife of legal ponzi-schemer Scott Rothstein and  Bar-tender-cum-socialite to 18 months in prison for her role in attempting to hide swag jewelry from federal investigators.  The sentence seems a bit excessive to us. 

MEGAN FOX
We've done many things in a trial, but introducing a photo of Megan Fox is not one of them. But ASA Gayle Levine did yesterday during a murder trial, as per @Davidovalle305: 


I'm not making this up. State just moved into evidence a photo of Transformers actress Megan Fox to show to jury.

moment: Prosecutor Gail Levine holding up to jurors a photo of actress Megan Fox, entered into evidence, during murder trial.



Longtime purveyors of the Miami Legal blog scene know that if it was a picture of Paris Hilton, then one Miami legal blogger wouldn't have missed it for the world. 

See you in court.

I'm no softy but, I disagree with you. For a long time, with all the fall out over her husband, she should have steered away from such behavior. Scott Rothstein epitomized greed and corruption (in the worst way possible) so Kim's retaining of ungodly gaudy jewelry was an extension of that sickening greed. Eighteen months was a great result done by great lawyering

So here is my question:

Does David Weinstein ever go to trial or is he just continuing his career as a prosecutor by pleading every single case he's ever had in practice out?

"“Jorge Forte deeply regrets his involvement in this case,” his defense attorney, David Weinstein, said in a statement. “He will do everything he can to make up for it.”

Why Even open your mouth if that's all you're going to say? To market yourself?

Rump,

Why do you post anonymous pussies like 11:47 am and allow the bashing of other lawyers? What's the probative value towards the topic? You enable these envious, spineless , back stabbing assholes to needlessly bad mouth others? II take issue with such imprudence
