Happy Birthday to the blog!

The Southern District of Florida Blog was launched July 4th weekend 2005 with this post. Six years later, this is the 1,863 post. The blog is averaging over 500 visitors a day.

I just wanted to thank all of you (defense lawyers, prosecutors, judges, civil lawyers, and others) for stopping by and reading, and for emailing me tips. The blog wouldn't work without you.

This is the most fun district in the country -- we have the best cases, the most trials, and the most interesting stories.

Have a great 4th of July weekend.

OK, I added civil lawyers, but I'm not adding agents!

Every day I check the blog, waiting for the new post to be an awesome crab bisque recipe, and every day it's law-this and law-that. Alas, my wait continues.

Hopefully you get to it within the next 6 years.

Markus- here is the answer to my earlier question-have u ever heard of a case where after a hung jury in federal court a defendant was found not guilty?

It took two trials, two Allen charges and two very long deliberations and one special post verdict jury note, , but Bill Matthewman walked his client out of Judge Dimitrouleas's courtroom Thursday night on a Conspiracy PWID +500 grams.
