It's time for a VACATION! Not for us, but at least it is for the judge presiding over the Plantation Cops federal mortgage fraud trial.


I was perplexed over the nearly three week court recess we discovered yesterday right in the middle of the ongoing Plantation cops mortgage fraud case.  How could you take three weeks off during a federal criminal trial?  I did a little digging and found that the break was due to Judge James Cohn's vacation schedule.  I'm not exactly sure how the trial got scheduled in such a way that it could have potentially conflicted with the judges vacation, regardless, I think this is a fantastic opportunity for the defendants.  Take into account that they've been going at it for over 25 days now, right in the thick of things the defense attorneys get a breather, time to reevaluate their strategies and regroup.  In my opinion, this is a huge advantage.

With that said, I'm signing off early today, in the mean time, take a look over at Investigation Miami and see how a few local bloggers are bringing down City of Miami mayor Tomas Regalado's house of cards.


  1. Any idea how this trial has been going for the government as compared to the first trial? When are the big witnesses scheduled to testify?

  2. I only pray that you guys can make an impact at the city hall house of cards
