Weekend news and notes

1. "FIU couple to plead guilty in Castro agent case." FIU Professor Carlos Alvarez is pleading to a conspiracy count, capping his exposure to 5 years. And his wife Elsa is pleading to a misprision of a felony count, capping her sentence at 3 years. She's probably looking at a credit time served sentence of approximately 6 months.

2. Apply to be a magistrate judge in the Ft. Lauderdale division of the Southern District of Florida. (check the left hand side of the page). But only if you've been a member of the bar for 5 years, aren't 70, and aren't related to a district judge...
