2. Congrats to Guy Lewis and Mike Tein (and their lawyer Paul Calli) -- the bar investigation is closed because there was no PC to proceed. From the DBR:
The Bar also confirmed it has opened an investigation into three of the firm's most vocal litigation opponents: Miami attorneys Bernardo Roman III, Jose "Pepe" Herrera and Ramon Rodriguez.
3. The U.S. Attorney's Office issued this press release on the results of the pill-mill trial in front of Judge Marra. The headline boasts: "Jury Convicts Two Doctors of Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering Resulting from Pill Mill Operation in Broward and Palm Beach Counties"
Here's the headline, however, from the Palm Beach Post: "Jury clears two local pill mill doctors of eight overdose deaths, convicts them of money laundering"
The AP headline: "Fla. MDs cleared of most serious pill mill charges:"
The Sun-Sentinel: "Doctors not guilty of most charges in pill mill case"
The blog has discussed USAO press releases before, and for the most part, they have gotten better, but this one seems to be misleading to me.
