Update: considering the comments, nobody cares about the new juvenile court.
The Herald reports the approval by the Miami City Commission to build a "new...bright, modern, safe...welcoming...and green" Juvenile Justice Courthouse downtown. The title of the post links to the article.
Rumpole notes: About time, but can the colour be something other than green??
The current juvenile courthouse, which we've been to about three times in twenty plus years, is a disgrace.
Here's the real question: can the state beat the Feds and build a new courthouse in less time than it took the feds to build that new monstrosity which is still barely functioning? The bar is pretty low on this one.
Here's a recap of the collateral estoppel argument before the SCOTUS in Yeager v. US. Basically, there was a mixed verdict with acquittals on some counts and a hung jury on other counts, and the government wants to re-try the defendants and punish them for not pleading guilty earlier in violation of the recently enacted "Cheney laws."
Sorry for the lite post, but I'm a bit busy, but unlike certain federal bloggers, I can multi-task.
See you in court.
