No, no, not yet. Not until me and Harvey get the rules straightened out.
Orange Bucksnorts is turning into Bob Loblaw's law blog.
Domestic violence and false imprisonment charges against Brandon Marshall were dropped yesterday. Smart move. This was simply a verbal argument that got out of hand. Marshall never hit anyone, and was apparently only trying to get his cell phone back from this woman. Hopefully he can move forward from this and keep a more professional demeanor from here on out, similar to how Rod's progressed from his trumped-up DV matter in 2000.
David Kircus was in court yesterday trying to get the "no alcohol" and "no leaving the state" provision of his TRO lifted or loosened. He'll probably not be allowed to leave the state, but he should get the no alcohol provision lifted. The judge said she had to consult w/ the victim prior to lifting anything, so we'll see. I personally don't give a shit one way or another. I think the no alcohol thing was a little premature and goofy as hell, especially considering that nowhere near all the facts from that night are in.
I should clarify something from a few posts ago, this is NOT Kircus' first legal run-in, he was arrested for DUI while in Detroit. And as someone somewhere pointed out, his brother is currently in prison for murder. Also, Kircus (allegedly) let the guy escort him to the street where Kircus told him that they were then on public property and he "didn't have any rights." Kircus (allegedly) proceeded to smash his face in and (allegedly) told the guy "you don't know what I'm capable of." Sounds like a real peach.
I did notice though, that both Marshall and Kircus are represented by Denver attorney Harvey Steinberg. Steinberg also represented John Mobley for multiple issues and Jake Plummer for his road rage nonsense. Christ, this guy could retire off of fees collected from Donks alone. Criminal defense is certainly not my field, but Mr. Steinberg of Springer & Steinberg, you should be expecting my resume.
