Quick hits

1. How do you prosecute a defendant who is deaf, mute, and illiterate, including no known knowledge of sign language? They are trying.

2. Kyle McEntee and Patrick Lynch are ATL's lawyers of the year. Who, you say? Read about em here.

3. Justice Kagan wrote her first opinion, an 8-1 ruling for credit card companies.

4. F. Lee Bailey says he can prove OJ's innocence. I'm not sure it matters much; OJ is in jail for the next 33 years in Nevada.

5. The 11th Circuit is sleeping in this morning:
Inclement Weather
The Court of Appeals and all administrative offices in Atlanta will be operating on Wednesday, January 12, 2011. Employees are asked to report for duty no later than 10:30 a.m. Those employees who believe that they cannot safely arrive for work by that time should follow normal procedures to request annual leave, which will be granted liberally.

F. Lee should write a book entitled "If I Couldn't Prove O.J. Innocent, This is Probably Why Not" (hypothetically speaking, of course).

F. None of this stuff in his memo 'proves' OJ didn't do it. Persuasive, yes. You'd think someone with his knowledge of law wouldn't confuse objective facts and proof with persuasive opinions.

When are we going to get proof of who the real killer is? Guess someone else really is getting away with murder....
