Feeling a little bored, maybe a little blue? Then we have just the thing for you. A little smattering of 3rd DCA justice.
The ABC's of discovery are on full display in M.H. v. State, and Judge Rothenberg and company reach the conclusion that it is a discovery violation most foul when the State lists a "victim" (which every good defense attorney knows should be called "complaining witness") as category B witness. Category B means you won't B taking their depo, and Rothenberg says that is reversible error.
easy as 1-23
simple as do-ri-me-
ABC-123-list your victim as an A and you will A-OK"

WHEN COPS ATTACK -warning- the following video contains graphic and nasty language including multiple uses of the F word. Not surprisingly, Officer Friendly is doing all the cursing.
Miami Beach cops used to have a reputation for being mean, nasty, abusive, violent, thuggish...oh wait...they still do.
No truth to the rumor the video will be playing on a loop at MIA welcoming visitors to Miami this winter.
See You In Court.
