If Angela Corey threatened suit .... she needs to step down from Zimmerman case
Legal Insurrection ^ | June 7, 2012 at 10:29am | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 06/07/2012 8:18:09 AM PDT by JLS

If this is true, then Zimmerman prosecutor Angela Corey needs to step off the case.

Alan Dershowitz has been a harsh critic of Zimmerman prosecutor Angela Corey. Among his criticisms is that Corey has been too politicized in charging Second Degree Murder.

It does sound to me like Corey has given herself a financial stake in the case and thus a conflict of interest.

Dershowitz woke up one morning, looked in the mirror - and decided he had had it up to here with evil... Evil tried to slink away but Dershowitz wasn’t gonna let that happen... and so in a land far far away our story begins...

I don’t know what Florida’s rules of ethics are, but in several states, a prosecutor who gains a financial stake in a case, through book rights or whatever, must disclose that fact and withdraw as counsel. A different special prosecutor needs to be appointed.

In this case, it's Obama who needs Zimmerman tried and acquitted. That will give our first Muslim President (who is playing radical liberal leftist) the riots and burning this summer that he needs to get re-elected.

1. It will get the attention off the depression era economy

2 It will get his base energized. The majority of the racists who voted for Obama the first time (such as Colin Powell) will forget that he is the one bringing economic chaos to our country.

3 The vast majority of Americans can't even comprehend that our first traitor as President is destroying the US on purpose. As Americans smile at the notion Obama is a traitor working for Muslims, Obama smiles because he knows Americans really are the biggest fools in history.

Corey just picked a big fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel - and data by the terabyte.

Oh yeah, and he’s a damn good lawyer. Don’t always agree with him (esp in the past), but there’s no questioning his legal abilities.

My interpretation: Dersh is giving “fair warning” before filing a devestating bar complaint against Corey. Just a hunch.

Maybe she’s trying to put herself in a position of having to withdraw from the case, even if she would not go through with trying to sue Harvard. Maybe it is a “way out” for her to not face the humiliation when Zimmerman walks free.

According to the article:

Florida has adopted American Bar Association Standards of Criminal Justice Relating to Prosecution Function. ABA Standard 3-1.3 Conflicts of Interest provides in pertinent part:

(f) A prosecutor should not permit his or her professional judgment or obligations to be affected by his or her own political, financial, business, property, or personal interests.

Media don’t want to report the misconduct of Corey. So they won’t let him report this incident.

Of course If he agreed to let them sweep her threats under the rug they’d let him come on their shows.

While Zimmerman will be tried, he won't be acquited. His "trial" will will be on a par with the Soviet "show trials" of the 1930s, In fact a Jew in the 1930s and early 40s appearing before aPeople's court" judge would have gotten a fairer trial.

Zimmerman has now become a political pawn. His guilt or innocence is no longer the question. He will now be sacrificed to appease Holder's people's blood lust.

The ABA Standards are written like the “Pirates Code” from “Pirates of the Carribean;” they should be thought of more as guidelines rather than rules. It says they “shouldn’t allow their professional judgment to be affected” but it is ambiguous. It allows a prosecutor to say “sure I signed a book deal for a million bucks, but that didn’t get in the way of doing my job.” Yeah, right.

I was bored and looked up the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct. Their Rule for Special Duties of Prosecutors states:

Rule 4-3.8. Special Responsibilities of a Prosecutor

The prosecutor in a criminal case shall:

(a) refrain from prosecuting a charge that the prosecutor knows is not supported by probable cause;

(b) not seek to obtain from an unrepresented accused a waiver of important pre-trial rights such as a right to a preliminary hearing;

(c) make timely disclosure to the defense of all evidence or information known to the prosecutor that tends to negate the guilt of the accused or mitigates the offense, and, in connection with sentencing, disclose to the defense and to the tribunal all unprivileged mitigating information known to the prosecutor, except when the prosecutor is relieved of this responsibility by a protective order of the tribunal.

I practice in Indiana, and while Florida’s rule is similar, it is not as specific as Indiana’s. Our Rule 3.8 states:

Rule 3.8. Special Responsibilities of a Prosecutor.

The prosecutor in a criminal case shall:

(a) refrain from prosecuting a charge that the prosecutor knows is not supported by probable cause;

(b) make reasonable efforts to assure that the accused has been advised of the right to, and the procedure for obtaining, counsel and has been given reasonable opportunity to obtain counsel;

(c) not seek to obtain from an unrepresented accused a waiver of important pretrial rights, such as the right to a preliminary hearing;

(d) make timely disclosure to the defense of all evidence or information known to the prosecutor that tends to negate the guilt of the accused or mitigates the offense, and, in connection with sentencing, disclose to the defense and to the tribunal all unprivileged mitigating information known to the prosecutor, except when the prosecutor is relieved of this responsibility by a protective order of the tribunal;

(e) not subpoena a lawyer in a grand jury or other criminal proceeding to present evidence about a past or present client unless the prosecutor reasonably believes:

(1) the information sought is not protected from disclosure by any applicable privilege;

(2) the evidence sought is essential to the successful completion of an ongoing investigation or prosecution; and

(3) there is no other feasible alternative to obtain the information;

(f) except for statements that are necessary to inform the public of the nature and extent of the prosecutor’s action and that serve a legitimate law enforcement purpose, refrain from making extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused and exercise reasonable care to prevent investigators, law enforcement personnel, employees or other persons assisting or associated with the prosecutor in a criminal case from making an extrajudicial statement that the prosecutor would be prohibited from making under Rule 3.6 or this Rule.

In an Indiana case decided last year (didn’t have time to look it up), the Supreme Court held that a prosecutor’s financial deal regarding a pending case is exculpatory evidence under subsection (d) of this rule, and the prosecutor is required to disclose. If I recall the opinion correctly, it also held that these financial arrangements acted to disqualify the prosecutor. In the case, the defense suspected the prosecutor signed a book deal, and specifically requested it be disclosed. The prosecutor refused.

I am sure you are wrong about the latter. He will not lose anything. He is well insulated.

As far as the media goes this could be a close call for them. It is a fluid situation. If the Zimmerman case has worked to stir up the base, then the MSMediots would continue to push this. Since it has not, the MSMediots could turn on her Corey at any time. Particularly if she persists in attacking leftwing institutions like Harvard.

First of all Angela's position is an elective office, that tells you what her approach to "justice" will be. Clearly her "attitude" is not about "justice" but power and glory. Read the transcript of her famous Press conference of April 11, 2012, Full of irrelevancies, pompous language, mystifying acronyms, and her attitude is that Mr. Zimmerman is already guilty and a killer. Typical drunk-on-power bureaucrat.

Read it yourself.

Justice for Trayvon

NOT justice for Trayvon AND Zimmerman!

Once again, I might be wrong, but it sure looks like they have different hairlines to me.

It's hard to find a picture of the "Trayvon" in the white shirt that does show the hairline. Most have the forehead cropped off, including the one in the Orlando Sentinel Photogallery. Why is that?

The Trayvon in the upper picture does look different from the the lower one. And yet the Orlando Sentinel included it in their most recent photogallery. Surely by now three months in their crack team of professional journalists have completed their investigation into the golden teeth picture and concluded that it is indeed the Trayvon. Otherwise why include it in their most recent photogallery???

The pictures of him with the baseball cap on do look like Trayvon, though the ME has the scar and tattoo listed as being on the other arm/shoulder.

Witness #8 is clearly DeeDee and her story there now differs from the one that she told to the national media back in March. She said then that she told Trayvon on the phone to run away but he said something to the effect of: “No — I’m not running anymore”. And then the call ended. She has been coached by Crump who has her in hiding working on her new story, but it won’t fly. Her initial story is already on record.

LOL, I’m not going to worry about it — or devote any more time to it.

I thought the link was interesting.

Witness #9 is the anonymous caller with her recorded call to SPD.

Witness #22, a former co-worker of mid-Eastern descent, claims Zimmerman taunted him over and over again. He also claims that Zimmerman’s constant complaints against everyone led to his being fired.

Austin McLendon is a 13-year-old eighth grader who was walking his dog. He is the brother of Witness #15. The witness states he saw someone lying on the ground who couldn’t get up. It looked like they had on a red shirt. He was outside while walking a dog. The person on the ground was yelling “help.” He says he only looked for a few seconds and only saw one person. He didn’t see how it happened. He didn’t see why he was yelling for help. He thought because it was wet outside that…

I remember this kid's interview with the media. He said that he saw the black guy on top of the older guy punching him.

His mom then came out and said that he is too young to have seen what he said he saw. His mom should be indicted for witness tampering.

And now he is saying that he only saw one person on the ground yelling for help because he couldn't get up because the ground was wet???

Clearly these witnesses are all trying to twist their testimony so as to hide the fact that Trayvon was the aggressor.

Witnesses #9 and #22 didn't see anything that night or am I wrong???

They are merely character witnesses against Zimmerman. I wonder when they came forward and why they did if they saw nothing that night. Clearly they have a grudge against him. Why are they relevant as witnesses in this case, while Trayvon's school records and background to the event are not???

I do notice that Witness #22 states that Zimmerman would not pick a fight with someone bigger and Trayvon was definitely bigger.

Witness #5 definitely has credibility problems.

This witness ... believes that whomever she saw out there intended to kill the Trayvon Martin.

So she's testifying to what she believed about his intentions before the shooting. Did she believe it then or later??? If she believed it then, then why did she wait until later to make the call??? And what does someone's "intention" look like???

She was about to take an online test and went to make coffee in the kitchen, when she heard sounds like sopmeone in trouble or hurting.

Was this before or after the gunshot?

She and Selma slowly walked toward the glass door, and saw “the kid” laying on the ground.

It sounds like she is describing what she heard and saw after the gunshot which is not disputable.

Zimmerman, on both of his passport applications, list his height as 5'10''. I'm confused, just how tall or short is he? The M.E. stated that Martin was 5'11".

Short people always want to be taller.

Zimmerman was measured at the SPD on two separate occasions -- 5'7" at one time and 5'8" at another, according to reports. Would that be 5"7 with his shoes off and 5'8" with them on or both on or both off???

Martin on his DL is listed at 6'00". He is probably 6'00" or taller with his shoes on, 5'11" on the ME table.

In short, there is, according to documented measurements, about a 4 inch height difference between them: 5'7" - 5'8" versus 5'11 - 6'00". In basketball and boxing, that is a substantial height and reach difference.
