It was a hot and mostly quiet summer weekend. But there was some news.
Mr. Markus's defense of accused killer Dr. Lawrence Rudolph continues in federal court this week. The Fugitive, it is not- but it's still a fascinating case.
There is more spirit and verve in the REGJB today as your county court judges are back from a grueling week of judicial education. (See our last post. )
Opening statements are today in the Nicholas Cruz penalty phase in Broward- Cruz is the killer of 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool in Parkland, Florida. We may not know much, but we know there is no way he walks out of this proceeding without a death sentence, or 17 of them. A more difficult defense we cannot imagine.
But if you want to know the really really big news, then hold on...because it's a whopper.
Jennifer Afflick and Ben Lopez got married over the weekend in Las Vegas at the Little White Chapel! *
It took twenty years, but true love won out.
*Yeah, we know we wrote their names wrong.
