Wednesday afternoon quick hits
Many of you folks know yesterday’s post on Tim Whitmer trying to get the ol’ Felony Waiver from the Louisiana DOI made nola.com yesterday evening. I thought the link was nice.
Along those lines we’ve picked up a fan at Firedoglake and were linked in yesterday’s news roundup. I thought that was nice too.
Judge Ginger granted Team Fazzio’s motion for an evidentiary hearing related to alleged prosecutorial misconduct in his and his brother in law Mark Titus’ prosecutions. For Titus this would be round 2. Round 1 before Judge Lemelle did not go so well despite the fact Ed Garner, owner of Garner Services, spoke up on Titus’ behalf. Manuel Torres has all the skinny on the latest developments including some decent legal analysis over at nola.com.
Speaking of Mark Titus, he stopped in with us over the weekend to tell his side of things for those so interested. I do not think his lawyers liked him speaking out so I doubt he’ll be giving us any further insights. In any event I suspect Judge Ginger’s upcoming hearing will be well attended.
