Earlier reports/Background


  1. I hope he goes to trial AFTER Paul is gone.

  2. Anonymous, I wholeheartedly agree.

  3. Well of course he will go to trial after Paul is gone. Along with Ferrer, Warren, Curry, Littlefield and according to John Chiv apparently Eddie Lee. It boggles the mind that Fleming is not in there now dealing with all of these disasters. Did she not want too? Having to deal with these cases and probably Firpo's cases as well will be an unmitigated disaster and will cast the dye (badly) for her term

  4. 6:44 Paul is prosecuting Eddie Lee right now. Maggie is the District Attorney Elect and she cannot just march in before her term and try cases.

    As much as the rest of us would like that possibility. Firpo just won a victory in the Tree case. You seem to have personal animosity towards Firpo. That is your issue.

    Do not sully the rest of us with your opinion.

  5. Dear 644, Ms. Fleming's term does not begin until January, and she has absolutely no authority or standing in any criminal case until after she is inaugurated. Mr. Gallegos is and will be the DA until then. So yes, she will inherit a disaster, unless she comes to her senses and resigns on Day one.
