The Florida Paralegal by Wm Statsky, Robert Diotalevi and Pam McCoy Linquist

They send me books. Lots and lots of books. Who??? you're asking? The publishers, that's who. They seem to think that we're going to review every book that's come our way. I haven't gotten to Ludicrous Laws & Mindless Misdemeanors yet. The Inspiration Factor was uninspiring and Fame 101 was content -free. What the heck did they expect me to do with The Florida Paralegal, I ask you. Turns out that The Florida Paralegal, a resource guide written by William P. Statsky, Robert N. Diotalevi and Pam McCoy Linquist could be a very good textbook. I would prefer that the... Read more →

District attorney recognizes paralegal for law enforcement assistance

Sure like it when everyday citizens find & help solve crimes! Read all about it in this article from California's Auburn Journal: "The message from the Placer County District Attorney's Office was that law enforcement can't go it alone. "'Many ignore the call,' District Attorney Brad Fenocchio said, during a ceremony honoring several who stepped up to assist an investigation or put a suspect behind bars. "Area residents who went above and beyond that call stepped up Tuesday before the Board of Supervisors to receive praise and certificates from the District Attorney's Office. [snip] "Paralegal Gayle McMorow noticed some inconsistencies... Read more →

"Still Guilty After All These Years"

Very interesting op-ed in the NY Times from author & lawyer Scott Turow, all about how advances in forensic technology may also impact statutes of limitations. He raises some intriguing questions about changes in law & the passage of time: "THIS Friday a 33-year-old man named Juan Luna will go on trial here for the murder of seven people in a Brown’s Chicken restaurant in Palatine, Ill., on Jan. 8, 1993. The investigation of the murders, in which the victims’ bloody corpses were discovered in the restaurant freezer, languished for more than a decade until Mr. Luna’s DNA was identified... Read more →

"ABA to Continue Fight Over Detainee Rights"

Excellent news for supporters of habeas corpus: "The American Bar Association [PDF link] said last week it will continue to challenge key provisions of a federal bill authorizing military tribunals to try terrorism suspects, even though the legislation ultimately passed by a lopsided margin in the Senate. "ABA members say they are most concerned about sections of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 that deny judicial review of habeas corpus claims filed on behalf of 'enemy combatants' being held at facilities in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and other locations. "'It's a sweeping denial of habeas, so that any alien who is... Read more →

Enron task force receives top award

Good news -- paralegals serving on that task force are included: "U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales this week bestowed his office's top annual award to federal prosecutors, FBI agents and paralegals who have served on the Justice Department's Enron Task Force, including those involved in this year's fraud and conspiracy trial of former Enron chairman Ken Lay and former CEO Jeff Skilling."

Sounds like a good job opportunity in Montana: "A grant recently awarded to the Montana Legal Services Association will allow the group to bolster its services across the state.

"Paralegal Charged With Theft"

I hate to find news like this: "A former paralegal has been arrested for stealing $3,800 from the New York County Public Administrators office [PDF link] while he was employed by a law firm that serves as counsel to the PA. "Derricke Brown, 43, of the Bronx, has been charged with third degree grand larceny, a class D felony. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison." Read more →

What happened on June 13, 1966?

Many important events, we're sure, but one in particular came from the Supremes: "Washington, June 13--The Supreme Court announced today sweeping limitations on the power of the police to question suspects in their custody. The justices split 5 to 4. In stinging dissents the minority denounced the decision as helping criminals go free to repeat their crimes. "The majority opinion, by Chief Justice Earl Warren, broke new constitutional ground by declaring that the Fifth Amendment's privilege against self-incrimination comes into play as soon as a person is within police custody. "Consequently, under the rulings, the prosecution cannot use in a... Read more →

"Milberg Weiss, Two Name Partners Indicted"

Well, this isn't good news: "After a six-year investigation, federal prosecutors in Los Angeles have indicted the New York securities class action firm Milberg Weiss Bershad & Schulman and two of its name partners. "The charges against partners David Bershad and Steven Schulman of conspiring to make illegal payments to clients in class actions -- and to conceal those payments -- have been widely expected for months, and the two partners took a leave of absence from the firm last week. "Yet it only became clear over the last few weeks that similar charges would be levied against the Milberg... Read more →
