    Ah, Dershowitz. He is an absolute bomb-throwing liberal and media-hound, who can always be counted upon to give a radical sound-bite or quote.

    BTW, prosecutors in most states have almost iron-clad immunity for actions they take in the scope of their duties. If not, every indicted person would try to bring a civil suit, claim ethics violations, and trying to bring criminal charges. Dershowitz knows this quite well.

    This is usually true, but in this case he's on the right side.

    There are still ethical standards that need to be adhered to.

    Dershowitz is a the epitome of all that together is the most extreme negative stereotype of a lawyer. It is not possible to consider anything he says about anything to be anything but a waste of time.

    The prosecutor has done some questionable things, but I don't see anything likely to get a prosecutor in trouble in the real world.

    Want an example? A very well known KY prosecutor: ([ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyy7Q3iIo5k"]About Being on the Discovery Channel's Story of Trent DiGiuro's Murder - YouTube[/ame]) is going to be on Investigation Discovery Thursday night (http://www.kentucky.com/2012/04/24/2162466/trent-digiuro-case-to-be-featured.html) about a very high profile murder case here (U.K. Wildcat football player murdered). After the trial, it came to light that an FBI lab tech had lied about firearm/ammo evidence during the initial trial and the prosecutor knew about it and kept it quiet.

    He's as popular as ever and the worst thing that happened to him or anybody in his office was the judge talking mean to them.

    Should be an interesting show.

    I say again, the first lawyer somebody needs to deal with in the Zimmerman case, on ethical issues, in Benjamin Crump.

    I think that's a little over the top, even from my point of view. My office (not me, personally) has had a case against him, coming out of the "innocence project" BS. There was nothing that unusual about him or his associates, except that his name excites the press. Besides that and some knowledge of how to litigate a civil case, they could have been local public defenders (who like to involve themselves in random civil cases).

    However, I am especially surprised that you object to him - I would have though his politics were fairly in line with yours. I'd expect him to be more disliked by the farther right GTers.

    In the Duke case, Nifong CONCEALED evidence; that's why he got slammed by the system.

    Whatever one's feelings about Dershowitz, if HE says your action is ill-considered, you should at least recheck your audit trail.

    At this point, there is a huge, huge difference between any questionable decisions by the Zimmerman prosecutor and by that scumbag in NC (who, I think, is no longer a lawyer).

  13. Several days ago I suggested that the State's pursuit in Zimmerman case was verging on actionable malicious prosecution. It would behoove those unfamiliar with this Florida law to get acquainted. Of the six elements required to establish malicious prosecution, five appear to be present...and the remaining one is likely forthcoming.

    Dershowitz's speculation on subornation of perjury is separate, but fits well and adds to the element of malice.

    You realize you just said "ethical standards" in a thread about lawyers, right?

    They wrote those with the intent of looking good but still giving them the opportunity to make money.

    Her very words showed it to be Malicius prosecution- "We're here to find justice for Trayvon!!" No your not - your there to find the truth! And apply the law as written. When she didn't include the photo of his injuries to gain the warrent for arrest! Thats purjury! I can't wait for a jury to get this case and rip the prosecution to hell and back for not following the law! A good judge should shut this BS down real quick. :supergrin:

    It's going to depend on the jury, and how well each team tells their story.

    From my POV, the statement made is restrained. It is not a matter of politics. It stems from his partisan involvement in academic matters.
