Helio Castroneves

I was at the courthouse today and popped into the Castroneves trial. I lasted there about 5 minutes. After the DOJ prosecutor asked the following question, I left: "Now, we've been discussing general ledgers for some time -- please explain to the jury what a general ledger is."



And now I get to post another picture:



Speaking of the Castroneves case, Judge Graham is being honored today at the University of Miami: he's receiving the William M. Hoeveler Award for ethics and leadership in the legal profession.

Hey smartie pants. I'll bet that DOJ prosecutor can spell the defendant's last name correctly. Thank g-d you lawyer better than you blog.

MEEESSSSTTTTEEEEERRRRR MARKUS- you're not twittering in one of my courtrooms are you?

I'd like nothing better than to have a marshal grab your phone so we can examine the contents. You have been warned.

Kindly act accordingly.

I have to believe a whole lot is riding on the outcome of this case. if the government loses yet another huge case (tape recording attorneys, markus verdict, liberty city 7, 6, or whatever, etc., etc.), surely it's time to start talking about competency, training and judgment in the usao?
