IT'S A TOWN FOR LOSERS.....
If you've noticed that we've been posting less frequently, you are correct.
Blame the feds. They are relentless. And of course the 11th Circuit doesn't give you a whole of time to file a brief. But we are thankful for the work.
The JAA blog had these very nice words for Circuit Judge Elect Al Milian:
Meet Judge Al Milian - good news out of Miami, as Al easily won a spot on the circuit bench. Many remember him as a relentless Broward prosecutor, but he’s spent a lot longer since then defending with equal passion and zeal. On a personal note, we couldn’t be happier. When asked, Al would gladly co-counsel gratis on cases south of the border when deserving individuals with bright futures were facing incredible odds. His local gravitas always got the job done, with one young man he helped us with now a successful engineer with the Chrysler Corporation in Detroit. Al’s simply a great guy, and will make a great judge. Well done!
They call us south of the border? Why, the nerve of them....
David Ovalle and the Herald have a great article on the railroad cops who arrest poor people in Overtown for crossing the tracks. Talk about living on the wrong side of the tracks....
The Article is here.
Here's the deal with this seminar: it will change your life. It will be a magical experience. People will be talking about this seminar for decades hence. And if it it is not standing room only, Robert Kuntz may just cash in all his chips and pack a grip and head for the coast, because this is a town for losers and he's pulling out of here to win. So please, please please, register and experience legal nirvana.
Enjoy your weekend. See You In Court Monday.
