Tip of the Week

  • Lawyer’s Facebook photo causes mistrial in Miami-Dade murder case via The Miami Herald
    • "While on a break, the 31-year-old lawyer posted the photo on her personal Facebook page with a caption suggesting the client’s family believed the underwear was “proper attire for trial.” "Although her Facebook page is private and can only be viewed by her friends, somebody who saw the posting notified Miami-Dade Judge Leon Firtel, who declared a mistrial."
