CLE FOR YOU AND ME

First: A big congrats to Rick Docobo for a big NG Thursday before Judge Verde on a murder case.  The defense rested and then the Defendant decided he wanted to testify. It's an old PD/Jedi Master mind trick. It apparently befuddled ASA Santiago Aroco who handled the case for the State. The Defendant's brother testified against him and Docobo still walked him! Well done. Well done indeed. 



RULE 3.113. MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR ATTORNEYS IN FELONY CASES 
Before an attorney may participate as counsel of record in the circuit court for any adult felony case, including postconviction proceedings before the trial court, the attorney must complete a course, approved by The Florida Bar for continuing legal education credits, of at least 100 minutes and covering the legal and ethical obligations of discovery in a criminal case, including the requirements of rule 3.220, and the principles established in Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963) and Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972). 

This rule was just adopted by the Florida Supreme Court. 
Click here.  Or read below. Your choice. No fee. 





By May 16,  2016 you need 100 minutes of CLE in Giglio, Brady, and the joys, wonders, and secrets of Rule 3.220 of the Florida Rules Of Criminal Procedure. 

Enjoy.

While I have no faith in the prosecutors paying attention or learning anything, they could use some CLEs on this.

Jedi Master/PD: These aren't the droids you are looking for.

ASA: These aren't the droids we are looking for.

JM/PD: The defense rests.

ASA: The defense rests.

JM/PD: The defense calls the defendant.

ASA; HUH?????

Since the New Rule specifies "acting as Counsel of Record", does that mean Counsel of record for Either party , The State and the Defense?

Local lawyer makes good: Blecher represents Clippers embattled owner Sterling:

Sterling has hired J.B. Blecher, a Miami antitrust lawyer, to represent him with the NBA, Sports Illustrated and USA Today reported.

Blecher represented the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in its lawsuit victory against the NFL that allowed the Raiders to move to the city from Oakland without approval from other owners before the 1982 season. The Raiders returned in 1995.

Rumpole I want to address an issue that was being discussed before: essentially people were discussing whether it was appropriate for women to use powerful men to help advance their careers? Before discussing my situation, let me ask this : one woman is super smart and has zero personal skills. In fact she is obese and doesn't bathe frequently but writes brilliant briefs. The second woman is a C student but is very good looking and personable and does very well in social situations helping get clients to the firm. Why is it ok for the super smart woman to use her skill to get a job but no ok for the sexy Woman to flirt- or more- to get a job or advance her career? Why is it ok for the good looking guy jock who everyone wants to have a beer with to get promoted for his people skills but not the woman who is equally sexy and outgoing? Not saying what I did or what I agree with. Just asking hard questions no one wants to confront.

I am seething at the Dolphins. Furious about the draft. We play teams that run 3 or 4 wr sets. To counter that we run zone 2 and rotate the strong safety down to cover the Z receiver. That is basic. So that means in dime we need 4 good CBs. And we didn't draft any of note and could have traded up. The Y receiver as it stands now in Nickel cover two or quarters man will most likely be covered by a Sam backer and that spells disaster!!!
