  • Did False Testimony Lead To The Wrongful Conviction Of Byron Case?

    in Legal

    Tune in on Tuesday September 23, at 8 PM CDT (What is Central Daylight Time?)
    This week we will be discussing the Byron Case murder case with Byron's mother Evelyn Case, and the author of "The Skeptical Juror and the Trial of Byron Case,” John Bennett Allen.
    We will be taking calls during the second half of the show. Please call (347) 850-1478 with questions and comments about the case.  Anastasia Elizabeth WitbolsFeugen was murdered on the evening of October 22, 1997. Her body was found in a cemetery with a gunshot wound to her face. WitbolsFeugen had been fighting with her fiancé Justin Bruton on the night of her murder. Bruton’s body would later be found behind an abandoned warehouse where he had taken his own life with a shotgun.
    Police repeatedly referred to WitbolsFeugen’s death as a murder suicide but the case remained open for three years, until police received shocking information from Kelly Moffett implicating her ex-boyfriend Byron Case for the murder. Moffett and Case were friends with WitbolsFeugen and Bruton and were with the couple earlier in the evening before the murder occurred.
    According to Byron's supporters, the prosecution's case was built primarily on the testimony of the embittered ex-girlfriend Moffett. They claim she implicated Case in an act of revenge because Case had ended their relationship. Supporters also claim that Moffett has a long history with drug abuse and mental illness. Case is currently serving two consecutive life sentences for murder based on her testimony. Did the false testimony of a vindictive ex-girlfriend take the freedom of an innocent man? Tune in to hear the details of this compelling case.

  • The Discovery Process (Part I): Written Discovery and the Use of Interrogatories

    in Legal

    After you have filed a Complaint or responded to a Complaint by filing an Answer to the Complaint, the next phase of the litigation is called discovery.  Discovery typically begins by sending Interrogatories and Requests for the Production of Documents, Objects and Tangible Things (“Requests to Produce”).  Interrogatories are written questions and Requests to Produce are requests for documents, objects and tangible things.  This Podcast with Jennifer Burt of Lavelle Law will review the process and provide an overview of what to expect. 

  • How to Have Fun at a Large Law Firm

    in Legal

    During law school, many had dreams of working at a large law firm.  While it was understood that the hours would be long, there was the appeal of the large salary, the lunches in the city, the happy hours, and the general camaraderie at the firm.  However, the reality was much different than the expectation and time is spent mostly sitting behind a desk, trying to meet billable hour requirements, creating an unhappy work environment.
     
    But there is another option.  Rather than feeling trapped in a career that doesn’t make you happy, there is a way to derive pleasure from your work.  Robert Graff will be speaking on tips and strategies on how to find enjoyment at your firm and have fun practicing your chosen career.
     
    Robert Graff is the President of The Graff Standard and one of its coaches.  Prior to becoming a coach, he was an assistant district attorney for five years, an associate at an employment, business, and healthcare law firm for two years, and currently has his own private practice located in Pennsylvania. As a coach, he helps lawyers reignite the passion they once felt for the law, find enjoyment in even the most demanding and monotonous aspects of their job, and strike a sustainable work-life balance.
