I miss SFL too, so stay off my case.
John Pacenti reports on the acquittal of Muslim cleric Izhar Khan. Kudos to Marshall Dore Louis and Joe Rosenbaum.
Greenberg Traurig enjoyed the dismissal of a malpractice lawsuit against it. A divided New York State Appellate court dismissed charges that a GT partner forged a document in a lawsuit. "The court held a "new cause of action for fraud does not accrue each time a plaintiff discovers new elements of fraud in a transaction or new evidence to prove such fraud," the opinion from the Appellate Division, First Department, said. I'm not sure that a victory predicated on the other side's failure to know all the fraud from the get-go merits a spike-the-ball celebration, but a win is a win.
Rumpole covers the Bunker's latest to Judge Hirsch (methinks there is a back story to the Judge Rothenberg and Judge Hirsch relationship.)
Enjoy your long weekend in observance of Dr. King's Birthday. Get a massage, enjoy a beer, and as my mother always cautions, don't take any wooden nickels.
N.B. Spenser is a tough act to follow, as affirmed by the many supportive comments to his post. Anyhoo, fortunately there is a lot going on so I don't have to just talk about myself, over and over and over again. The Spencemeister would be wise to accept Horace's offer to serve as Spence's agent and pitch a reality show for Spence. The possibilities are endless.
