Lawyer: Officer Who Leaked To Dealer Thought He Was Informant

Did Phila. lawyer talk to Castro about JFK death?

Sinson represented Robert Talamine, the owner of an apartment rental business who was arrested after two cars at a competing business had their tires slashed. Prosecutors dismissed charges when a witness who said he'd seen a man slash the tires on one car and leave in a vehicle with a license plate number that police tracked to Talamine failed to appear in court. Talamine sued for defamation and malicious prosecution, but the case was dismissed by then-Cook County Judge William Taylor, who in 2012 was appointed to the Illinois Appellate Court's First District. When a panel of First District judges not including Taylor upheld the lawsuit's dismissal in July, Sinson "exploded," he later acknowledged. He wrote in a filing that the appellate decision "troubled" him, saying it left out "facts it finds inconvenient." "Perhaps this Court felt it was more important to maintain a friendly relationship with their colleague down the hallway than it was to do justice," he wrote But after the court threatened to hold Sinson in contempt, he apologized. The court accepted and decided against sanctioning him. "While this insulting language may impress his client in a manner more suited for talk radio, it has absolutely no place in a judicial setting as it does nothing to serve the interest of justice and it promotes disrespect for the independence and impartiality of the judiciary," the court wrote. Sinson's attorney, George Collins, said his client's emotions got the better of him and he "blew up" after losing what he thought was a strong case. "Umpires call strikes and balls, and if you don't like that rule, then you shouldn't play baseball," Collins said.

Yankees president Randy Levine grilled by Alex Rodriguez's lawyer

Rafael Cordero, 52, had no idea his sibling had instead worked his way to the top echelons of one of Kensington's largest drug trafficking organizations, attorney Jack McMahon Jr. said. "This is not a bad cop. This is not a rogue," the lawyer told jurors as Cordero's trial on federal obstruction of justice charges began Thursday. "This is a cop that always made good choices, sound choices." FBI agents arrested Cordero in August 2012, more than a year after authorities first discovered his family bond with David Garcia, a top operator in a heroin distribution ring run by Christian "Wassa" Serrano and Edwin "June" Medina. Both men were arrested in 2011. Serrano awaits a February trial. Medina pleaded guilty Monday to 16 drug trafficking counts. But it was during the investigation that brought them down that Cordero showed his true loyalties, prosecutors said Thursday. Two years ago, agents with the U.S.

Robber Killed Lawyer Over Inability to Pay Legal Fees

Alioto of San Francisco says the merger would reduce competition and boost fares. He sued the airlines in August. Alioto's claims are similar to those raised by the U.S. Justice Department. The government, however, settled its lawsuit against the merger last week after the airlines agreed to give some of their operating rights at major airports to low-fare competitors. In a filing Thursday, Alioto asked a federal bankruptcy judge in New York to delay the merger, which would create the world's biggest airline. American Airlines parent AMR Corp. plans to exit bankruptcy protection and complete the merger in the next few weeks.

Lawyer: Defense 'too little too late'

This was a rape." On Wednesday night, ESPN.com reported that a DNA analysis completed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed that DNA provided by Winston matched the sample taken from the underwear of the woman. According to the DNA analysis report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN.com on Wednesday, the Florida state crime lab determined the chance of the DNA in the woman's underwear being a match for someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion. On Thursday morning, Tim Jansen, Winston's attorney, said Winston had sex with the woman on Dec. 7, 2012, and that the sex was "absolutely" consensual. Jansen said the DNA match didn't surprise him and that the revelation wouldn't change his client's defense to the allegations. "Jansen stated that the DNA leak damaged his client's reputation," Carroll wrote. "Why would a consensual encounter damage his client's reputation?

Lawyer O'Mara: Trayvon Martin Shooting Traumatized George Zimmerman

We are completely shocked by the contents of the story because your reporter based his story on evidence given in camera in the Courtroom in a robbery case in which our client is 5th Accused. The High Court presided over by Mr. Justice Logoh is hearing proceedings involving PW3 named by your reporter as Obiri Yeboah in camera, and only defence Counsel, Court officials and the accused are in the Courtroom. We cannot understand how your reporters hands fell on the evidence, and we are more concerned because we are not allowed by law to disclose the cross examination we made and its impact on the concoctions of the witness. Suffice it to say that our client Frank Amegadzi is in custody on an alleged robbery case, but even notwithstanding the inventions of Yeboah, the Police have not thought it necessary to even take a Statement be it cautioned, investigative or ordinary from Frank Amegadzi all this while. In short, Frank Amegadzi has NOT been grabbed for killing any lawyer. Our client who has a fairly prosperous businesswoman for a wife, will definitely not kill his family friend of a lawyer, if at all, not for a paltry sum of 3,000 Gh Cedis assuming this imaginative motive were to be true. We are not lawyers nor spokesmen for the Ghana Police Service, but we have no doubt in our minds that if and when they eventually capture the killers of our late learned friend Blay, they will certainly put the culprits before Court for full trial.

Cordero has had a remarkable legal career. First in his class at Harvard Law School in 1946. First African American to serve as a clerk for a Supreme Court justice. Transportation Secretary under President Gerald R. Ford, adviser to nine other presidents, and, finally, a corporate lawyer who routinely pulled down fees of $1,200 an hour. Coleman, a Philadelphia native, also was the first African American to go to work for an old-line Philadelphia law firm, single-handedly breaking the color barrier of the city's legal establishment.
