In the past dark times, when social media was just beginning to catch on in South Florida, a Blog appeared, run by a young, aggressive talented lawyer. The blog purported to cover the Southern District Of Florida, and it became a hit.
Soon thereafter, an even more groundbreaking blog, full of rumor, humor, innuendo, and scintillating legal writing appeared. You're reading it now.
The moral of the story is explorers get slaughtered and settlers prosper. But we give credit to our own Magellan or Ernest Shackelford - hacking through the weeds to start a ground breaking legal blog.
We speak of course of our very favourite federal blogger, David O Markus with a K. The second best trial lawyer in the SDFL. An appellate counsel that crunches the government's case under his shoes like a construction worker tramping through a glass littered site with steel toed-boots.
And he has done it again, with his new (drum roll please......) PODCAST!!
FOR THE DEFENSE available now on Apple, Spotify, or your favourite podcast hosting sites.
Yes, David O Markus is truly the King Of all Legal Media. Trials. Appeals. Blogs, Twitter with more followers than a certain someone in DC, and now a Podcast.
Here is the link: listen here.
