Wentworth Miller to Return as ADA Isaiah Holmes

Wentworth Miller isn’t quite done with the criminal justice system, after all.

The Prison Break star, who recently announced he would no longer be involved with the Fox franchise he led, is set to reprise his role of Isaiah Holmes on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, TVLine has learned.

When Holmes appears in an upcoming episode, he’ll recently have been promoted to lead the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Civil Rights Unit. Carisi will request Holmes’ assistance when one of Holmes’ former classmates becomes the subject of an investigation. (Side note: With this promotion, anyone else thinking/hoping that Holmes might show up on Chris Meloni’s forthcoming SVU spinoff Law & Order: Organized Crime?)

Miller’s SVU episode is slated to air in early 2021. He first guest-starred as Holmes in Season 21.

In early November, Miller took to social media to explain why he was bowing out of any

Lunney case ‘not ready to proceed’ due to uncertainty over phone data law

Lawyers for one of the men accused of falsely imprisoning and assaulting Quinn Industrial Holdings (QIH) director Kevin Lunney have told the Special Criminal Court that the case is not ready to proceed in January because the law on the retention and accessing of mobile phone data is in “a state of significant uncertainty” in Ireland.

Defence counsel Michael O’Higgins SC, for one of the accused men who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the non-jury court this morning that he would be applying for the trial to be adjourned.

He said it was inappropriate for it to proceed when the law on the retention of mobile phone records was “unknown”.

Luke O’Reilly (66), with an address at Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy, Co Cavan; Darren Redmond (25), from Caledon Road, East Wall, Dublin 3; Alan O’Brien (39), of Shelmalier Road, East Wall, Dublin 3 and the fourth accused are all

Colorado Marijuana Attorney Rob Corry Barred from Practicing Law Update

Rob Corry was once more famous for practicing law than for being on the wrong side of it. But after a series of arrests and embarrassing incidents in Colorado and beyond, Corry has now been formally barred from working as an attorney in the state for one year and one day — and his legal difficulties are far from over.

Much of Corry’s renown was based on his work for marijuana reform. He helped write Amendment 64, the 2012 ballot measure that legalized recreational cannabis sales in the state; staged stunts like free joint giveaways to draw attention to pot-related issues; and was deeply involved in a previous version of the Denver 4/20 rally. He’s also represented clients in legal cases that had nothing to do with marijuana, including Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, the 23-year-old Houston truck driver accused of causing an enormous crash on Interstate 70 that killed four people

Attorney General Barr wants to drop U.S. drug case against former Mexican defense minister

The Justice Department has asked a judge to drop criminal charges against Mexico’s former defense secretary, Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda, who had been accused of helping one of Mexico’s drug cartels “operate with impunity” while using the Mexican military to hurt its rivals.

In a joint statement, Attorney General William Barr and Mexican Attorney General Alejandro Gertz Manero said the U.S. had dropped the charges so that Cienfuegos “may be investigated and, if appropriate, charged, under Mexican law.”

“The U.S. Department of Justice … has provided Mexico evidence in this case and commits to continued cooperation, within that framework, to support the investigation by Mexican authorities.

Cienfuegos, who served as defense secretary under then-President Enrique Peña Nieto from 2012 to 2018, was taken into U.S. custody in October at Los Angeles International Airport.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had charged Cienfuegos, 72, with accepting bribes from the H-2 cartel, based in

Scheer ends sister-in-law’s employment in his office as questions swirl – National

Former Conservative leader and sitting MP Andrew Scheer has ended his sister-in-law’s employment in his office after questions were raised about his decision to employ the family member.

Erica Honoway, who is the sibling of Scheer’s wife, was hired in the former leader’s office in 2007 to do bookkeeping work. While Scheer said in a Tuesday statement that he has checked with the ethics commissioner “whenever there has ever been a question of following the letter and the spirit of the rules,” he noted that in this case, it may not have been enough.

“Even the perception of a conflict concerns me. As such, I have met with Erica and I have ended her employment in my office,” said Scheer.

Georgia officials push back on Californians trying to flood state ahead of Senate runoffs

Californians are preparing to move to Georgia ahead of the state’s runoff elections to help flip the Senate blue but moving there to do so might violate state law.

“In order to be able to register to vote in Georgia, you have to be a Georgia resident,” Georgia’s voting system manager Gabriel Sterling said during a press conference. “That means you have to believe you are staying in Georgia.”

“I know there’s been discussion about people coming from out of state, Andrew Yang being the most famous to come help Georgia see the light and do the right thing,” Sterling added.

“Let me be clear about this: If you want to move to Georgia and be a part of the No. 1 state in America to do business, we are happy to have you,” Sterling said. “But … if you voted for Senate in one state and moved here to

Dallas Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer Mick Mickelsen Explains – Insider Trading

Dallas, TX, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Insider trading is a type of white-collar crime that can result in significant fines and even time in prison. In fact, some of the most notorious insider trading cases have involved high profile defendants who spent months and even years in prison for engaging in this type of securities fraud.” Mick Mickelsen Dallas Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

So, what is insider trading? In short, insider trading happens when someone in a company with private, non-public information about the company uses that information to their advantage to make an illegal sale or trade of securities. They can also run afoul of the law if they “tip off” an outsider by sharing their inside information to the outsider’s benefit. 

Insider trading isn’t always illegal. Specifically, people with inside knowledge of a company’s financial status are permitted to buy and sell securities. However, they

Marc Scaringi, lawyer in Trump’s Pennsylvania lawsuit, said ’litigation will not work’

Barely a week later, Scaringi is playing a key role in one piece of that litigation, representing the Trump campaign in what may be its last stand in Pennsylvania — an unlikely lawsuit intended to block the Keystone State from certifying its election results.

Last week, two lawyers withdrew from the Pennsylvania lawsuit, which claims it was unfair that voters in some Democratic-leaning counties were allowed to fix ballot mistakes. In a court filing on Monday, three more attorneys moved to do the same, The Washington Post’s Jon Swaine and Aaron Schaffer reported.

On Monday night, Scaringi was retained by the Trump campaign in their place. And now, the 51-year-old lawyer is set to argue an unlikely case that — even if it were successful — would not come close to reversing Biden’s vote margin of more than 70,000 ballots in Pennsylvania.

Scaringi himself argued on his radio show that
