  1. RBBM. Can you or someone point us to where Lat ever said this?

    I'm with you. I don't get why anyone is against him. He seems to be very fair.

    Thanks for contextualizing ATL. I was wondering about Lat's deference to Wendi and the Adelsons in light of all the developments.

    I enjoy reading AboveTheLaw and Lat’s views on the Markel murder case.

    I believe Lat would be described as a ‘columnist’, rather than a ‘journalist’, because he offers commentary and opinions along with the facts.

    Markel alleged his children told them their grandmother said she "hated" Markel for "taking her sunshines away from her."

    it just occurred to me where DA probably got that line from -

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are grey
    You never know, dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    sick.

    I hate to say it but wasn't that Caylee Anthony's song with her Grandma, too? 😢

    For me, the problem with Lat is that he editorializes the information he's reporting. He couldn't let Demko's quote stand and reminded us that Wendi is known to have odd reactions. After the 20/20 report he denied that LR was in plea talks with LE, and after the confession he suggested that LR was confused about 'the lady' when he implicated Wendi. Most news outlets or bloggers like Caron just relay the information, but ATL attempts to muddle. Instead of coming off impartial, this seems like he’s on the payroll doing defense work.

    In his first long post about the case, he noted a few possible theories, but fleshed out only one, including personal knowledge about the contentiousness of Danny's divorce and even linking to the court docket.
    http://abovethelaw.com/2014/07/a-prominent-law-professor-is-shot-at-home-and-killed/

    My recollection--and this is purely from memory--is that there was criticism from friends who knew Wendi that he was "going there" too quickly. I don't remember the source of that impression-- whether it was in comments that have since been disabled, comments on Facebook, or just talk among colleagues. Sorry.

    And I agree with others that David Lat does not think of himself as a journalist.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I just realized that Saam Zangeneh, SG's attorney, was Derek Medina's (the 'facebook killer") attorney as well. As I recall he was found guilty...

    Pot calling the kettle black!
    A wealthy dentist with a very supportive family, ( allegedly) talks about going to a " seedy Cuban" neighbourhood to find someone to murder the father of his young nephews.
    rbbm.
    imo, speculation.

    Lat had met Wendi Adelson through Dan Markel one time in Washington DC. He mentions this in an article posted a few months back. He may not practice law right now, but he has been a federal prosecutor and practiced law for a few firms.

O’Scannlain, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. David graduated from Harvard College, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and Yale Law School, where he served as book reviews editor of the Yale Law Journal.

    Maybe KM will get 5 years probation . . .

    There are interesting similarities in the 1998 murder-for-hire of the ex-son-in-law of Grandma Ann Trexler.
    The go-between got a ‘deal’ of 5 years probation, while the hirer and the hitman both got life in prison.
    The go-between was K Miller, who was Grandma Ann’s hairdresser.
    K Miller’s boyfriend was A Perez who killed Trexler’s ex-son-in-law.
    Trexler paid $10,000 to Miller, which Miller gave to Perez.
    Miller, who faced 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted of accessory to murder, agreed to testify against Trexler in exchange for five years probation on a reduced charge of compounding a felony.

    if KM gets offered 5 years probation i'd be shocked. but maybe that's what her lawyer is negotiating for as we speak and hey - anything is possible. if i was her lawyer, i'd be pointing to this (also FL) case as precedent. but it's not a bad starting place for negotiation for KM. negotiating down from the possible needle to probation - wow. i guess it depends on how much she knows and who she knows it on - and how much the prosecution needs her for a slam dunk on the masterminds. time will tell. i would not want to be the masterminds right now - i would not be able to work, sleep, eat, or do anything but constantly looking over my shoulder waiting for the shoe to drop and knowing that my once wonderful privileged life is now basically F'ed and it's all my own dumb fault. i wonder if any of the case participants look at this thread?

    During the past few months, after SG and LR were arrested, CA might have threatened KM.
    Example: CA says to KM - If you are arrested and if you snitch on me or any of my family, know that I have already hired a hit on your children. So if I’m arrested, expect your children to die.
    What a quandary!
    Speculation only.
