Yes, I will. I'll also be giving rides to those who want to see the trail WA took the day of the murder! :)
Will the tour include a pit stop at the ABC?!
Video Released of Dan Markel's Ex-Wife Being Told About Dan's Murder
"Wendi Adelson drove on Trescott Drive around noon the day Markel was shot. She said she thought the road, which by that time was cordoned off by crime scene tape, was closed because of a downed tree.

She went around and bought a bottle of Bulleit Rye Whiskey from the ABC on Thomasville Road to take to a party later that evening."

Trial in Florida murder-for-hire plot will be delayed
"TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —


Two defendants charged in the murder-for-hire slaying of a Florida university professor will not go on trial anytime soon.

A circuit judge on Tuesday agreed to postpone the trials of Sigfredo Garica and Katherine Magbanua because one of Magbanua's attorneys has been battling a "life-threatening medical condition."


The trial had been scheduled to start next month but will likely be delayed until at least March."

Wow. I thought there would be no way these guys would be able to pull off another delay of game. A life threatening condition, huh? It seems like the victim also experienced a life threatening condition most likely thanks to the defendants. Where's his justice after four years of waiting?

how long has Kawass known about this "medical condition"? did she purposely wait until the last minute to reveal it to the court in order to get another delay? DeCoste can't handle this case after all this time? delay tactics to buy more time and kick the can down the road for the alleged masterminds as directed by the chief legal puppeteer???

10 to 1 it is cosmetic in nature!

Florida's Standards for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions - The Florida Bar

4.3 FAILURE TO AVOID CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Absent aggravating or mitigating circumstances, and upon application of the factors set out in Standard 3.0, the following sanctions are generally appropriate in cases involving conflicts of interest:
4.31 Disbarment is appropriate when a lawyer, without the informed consent of the
client(s):
a) engages in representation of a client knowing that the lawyer’s interests are
adverse to the client’s with the intent to benefit the lawyer or another, and
causes serious or potentially serious injury to the client; or
b) simultaneously represents clients that the lawyer knows have adverse interests
with the intent to benefit the lawyer or another, and causes serious or
potentially serious injury to a client; or
c) represents a client in a matter substantially related to a matter in which the
interests of a present or former client are materially adverse, and knowingly
uses information relating to the representation of a client with the intent to
benefit the lawyer or another, and causes serious or potentially serious injury
to a client.
