Bicycle Safety

In March, House Bill 33 was passed in an attempt to increase roadway safety for bicyclists and motor vehicles after 15 people were killed in cycling accidents over a 24 month period.

The Casey Anthony Murder Trial is Interesting

The ongoing Casey Anthony Murder Trial is as interesting for its subplot as it is her being innocent or guilty.  Now, as a disclaimer, I have not watched much of the trial to this point. Further, my practice now is limited to Kentucky Civil Cases.  But in my limited viewing I came up with an interesting take on this case.

Casey’s Defense Lawyer’s in Opening Statement claimed that Casey was sexually abused by her Father.  Actually, they have zero witnesses in which to make this claim other than Casey herself.  Therefore, the larger issue now is whether Casey will take the stand in her own defense.  She almost has to in order for their story to remain credible.  But if they choose to do so the Prosecutor’s will almost surely tee off on Casey and the many other inconsistencies of her story/stories.
