Category: John Goodman
I have ignored this blog for the past two months because I was acutely tied up – the vicious battle for a new trial in the Goodman case, several intense criminal investigations and even a contentious civil case. But now I have some time while decompressing in our LA house. I will write on the many jury selection ideas learned from the Goodman wars once my PTSD wears off, but here is a taste of that battle.
I have been the fortunate recipient of many delicious pieces of impeachment in my career as a defense lawyer. The latest was in John Goodman’s trial.
Quo Vadis George? Where do you want your trial? Sanford? Isn’t this the county that fired its police chief for not arresting you? And the governor replaced the state attorney to be sure you are indicted? Paranoia? No it’s true, they are after you. They are stacking the deck against you. But don’t despair yet, the system also gives you powerful weapons to fight back with.
