Thirty-six circuit court judges from 18 Wisconsin counties are together publicly supporting a proposal to increase pay for appointed defense lawyers.

“As trial judges, we experience, on a daily basis, the impact that the underfunding of indigent criminal defense has on the quality and integrity of our criminal justice system,” Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Glenn H. Yamahiro wrote to the State Supreme Court. Yamahiro was the main author of the letter and was joined by the other judges.

“These impacts often impede our ability to function effectively and efficiently. We have observed a decline in the quality of representation provided to indigent defendants. Many experienced lawyers have discontinued accepting public defender appointments out of economic necessity. As a result we face an increasing number of inexperienced or underqualified lawyers representing indigent defendants in serious criminal matters.”

Yamahiro and the 35 other judges were commenting on a petition pending before the Supreme Court that seeks to raise from $40 an hour to $100 an hour the amount paid to lawyers appointed by State Public Defender’s Office (SPD) to represent clients who cannot afford to hire a lawyer. The SPD makes the appointments when the office has excessive caseloads or conflicts of interest. The Supreme Court will hold a public hearing on the matter May 16.

“It is imperative that our Supreme Court exercise leadership to address the Constitutional Crisis…because the executive and legislative branches of government have failed to address this problem…over the past 40 years,” Yamahiro wrote.

“We have seen an increasing number of requests for the appointment of new counsel and ineffective assistance of counsel claims,” the letter says. “Cases that we are required to continue based upon ineffective assistance of counsel…have negative impacts on crime victims. In many instances, victims often have to endure additional proceedings such as a resentencing or even retrial, in cases that should be closed. … We believe that it is beyond dispute that the criminal justice system operates at its best when each side has access to quality representation.”

The court must take leadership and address the  because the executive and legislative branches have failed to do so over the past 40 years, he said.

The 35 other judges signing are:

CBS renews 'Criminal Minds,' cancels 'Kevin Can Wait' – USA Today – USA TODAY

CBS renewed four series and canceled three more as it prepares to announce its 2018-19 schedule Wednesday.

Criminal Minds, Elementary, Man With a Plan, Life in Pieces and Instinct, a midseason drama starring Alan Cumming, were all given greenlights for new seasons.

The network also added several new series, including a remake of Magnum, P.I. 

But Kevin Can Wait, which marked King of Queens star Kevin James’ return to the network, won’t return for a third season. Neither will Superior Donuts, the sitcom that stars Judd Hirsch as a coffee-shop owner. And procedural drama Scorpion was stung by cancellation after four seasons.

Following the earlier foregone exits of Wisdom of the Crowd, 9JKL, Living Biblically and early fall casualty Me, Myself and I, that leaves only long-running Elementary and medical drama Code Black “on the bubble” between renewal and cancellation.

Executives not authorized to speak publicly said the fate of Code Black, which started its third season April 25, remains up in the air given its late return.

Kevin had the most ignominious exit. It opened strongly in the fall of 2016, but at the end of its first season the show killed off the wife of James’ lead character, played by Erinn Hayes, in an offscreen car accident, sparking outrage among fans. It then added Leah Remini, James’ Queens co-star, as a series regular and lost much of its ratings luster.

Uber has hired a former head of the national transportation safety agency following the company's fatal Arizona crash

uber driver nightmare

  • Uber announced Monday that it has hired a former chairman on the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to advise the company on safety culture following a fatal Arizona crash involving one of its self-driving cars.
  • The announcement coincides with The Information’s report that Uber determined the fatal crash was caused by a problem with the software that detected the pedestrian yet decided no reaction was needed.
  • The company said Monday that a full safety review of its self-driving vehicle program is underway as well.

Uber Technologies said Monday it has hired a former National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) chairman to advise the company on its safety culture after a fatal self-driving crash in Arizona.

Online news outlet The Information reported Monday that Uber has determined the likely cause of the fatal collision was a problem with the software that decides how the car should react to objects it detects. The outlet said the car’s sensors detected the pedestrian but the software decided it did not need to react right away.

“We have initiated a top-to-bottom safety review of our self-driving vehicles program, and we have brought on former NTSB Chair Christopher Hart to advise us on our overall safety culture,” Uber said Monday. “Our review is looking at everything from the safety of our system to our training processes for vehicle operators, and we hope to have more to say soon.”

A 49-year-old woman was killed on March 18 after being hit by an Uber self-driving sports utility vehicle while walking across a street in Phoenix, leading the company to suspend testing of autonomous vehicles. Arizona’s governor also ordered a halt to Uber’s testing.

Uber declined to comment on the Information report. “We can’t comment on the specifics of the incident,” the company said, citing the ongoing NTSB investigation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is also investigating the incident.

Uber Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi said in April the ride-sharing company still believes in the prospects for autonomous transport. “Autonomous (vehicles) at maturity will be safer,” he said at a Washington event.

Lawyer McLennan County DA fired joins former DA's law practice – KWTX

WACO, Texas (KWTX) A senior McLennan County prosecutor who was dismissed in March because his boss said he was insubordinate has joined the Waco law firm of former McLennan County District Attorney Vic Feazell, where he will practice criminal defense.

District Attorney Abel Reyna dismissed Aubrey Robertson on March 20 after Reyna said Robertson had been insubordinate in the 19th District Court, where Robertson was assigned as trial chief.

The dismissal came on the same day the man who defeated Reyna for a place on the GOP ballot next November visited with Robertson in his courthouse annex office.

Barry Johnson, who defeated Reyna in the March primary election, told KWTX he had visited with Robertson, but the meeting was about certain paperwork that he needed to complete and Robertson provided the documents to Johnson for execution and there was no conversation of a political nature, at all.

Judge Ralph Strother, 19th District Court judge, told KWTX he was not aware of any insubordination in his courtroom.

Shortly after Robertson left the DA’s office, Feazell got a call from a former Waco police officer and McLennan County sheriff’s deputy.

“Truman Simons called me right after that and said if I wanted to start a criminal defense practice, this guy (Robertson) was who I needed to talk to,” Feazell, now a well-known Waco and Austin lawyer who owns a personal injury law firm, said.

Feazell talked with KWTX by phone Thursday night and said he’d been thinking about beginning a criminal defense practice but just hadn’t done it yet.

“I reached out to him (Robertson) a couple of days later, we talked and he started here about a month ago,” Feazell said.

Robertson, 34, is a well-practiced criminal lawyer with experience at both prosecution and defense tables inside the bar.

“He (Feazell) sent me a text message the day I was fired just out of the blue,” Robertson said Friday in a telephone interview with KWTX.

He said since he was dismissed he had been looking around for opportunities, but he really wanted to stay in Waco.

“I love Waco. No matter where I looked I kept coming back to Waco and the legal community here,” Robertson said.

“That day (the day he was terminated) I bet I got a hundred texts and calls from defense lawyers saying they would help or offering their support and that meant a lot to me,” he said.

“I just cannot say enough about the defense bar in Waco and how supportive and helpful those people are,” Robertson said.

So, when Feazell offered, Robertson joined up

Robertson grew up in Houston and graduated from Humble High School in 2001, then from Baylor University with undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Slavic and Eastern European Studies.

He completed law school at New York Law School in 2008 and after graduation worked with the Legal Aid Society of New York City then later served as a law clerk for the Hon. L.B. Stone of the Supreme Court of New York County, and he interned with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office in Houston.

Robertson, who is single, lives with a boxer he says runs the place, but Waco is his home.

“I really think without that great moral support from the defense bar here it would have been a much harder decision to make.

Some local attorneys say there is an uncanny irony about Robertson joining Feazell, who back in 1988, as elected McLennan County District Attorney, was indicted by a federal grand jury and eventually acquitted at trial on a violation of the federal RICO organized crime act.



RICO, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, passed in 1970 and was aimed at undermining organized crime.

Today several detractors have suggested Reyna, as well, is under investigation for a similar issue but federal agencies have not confirmed, nor have they denied, the existence of any investigation targeting Reyna.

But Dallas-area attorneys F. Clinton Broden, Brian Bouffard and David Conrad Beyer all have appeared recently in Waco district courts where in one case a visiting judge refused to hear testimony or to honor subpoenas duces tecum, and in the other the state filed a motion to recuse a local judge who prior to then had enjoyed prosecutors’ support.

All three lawyers, each of whom represents at least one Twin Peaks shootout defendant, have said publicly they believe Reyna is the target of a federal investigation into impropriety in his office.

And over a series of court hearing associated with the Twin Peaks cases, Reyna has successfully avoided having to provide testimony on the issue.

Reyna, for his part, says he is not aware of any federal investigation that involves him and does not believe that members of his staff have participated in the effort to discolor his service.

“If you believe this you’d have to believe that the FBI has been investigating me since 2014 and they’ve never said a word to me,” Reyna said.

He said the whole thing is purely an effort by a disgruntled former employee and a former political opponent to disgrace him.

Bear in mind, none of this is proven up yet, but Broden put the court on notice he plans to subpoena testimony from several individuals ranging from former assistant district attorneys to current ones, former and current DA staff members, at least two FBI agents and one retired Waco police detective.

In a recent article published on KWTX.com, former Reyna First Assistant DA Greg Davis said he had been subpoenaed to testify about his connection to the DA’s office by one of the attorneys representing a Twin Peaks Massacre client, but posturing on both defense and prosecution sides has put off that testimony and none of Davis’ comments have been heard in open court.

Davis resigned July 31, 2014, the same day long-time Reyna’s administrative assistant Julissa West quit, “because it had become apparent to me that despite my warnings and advice, Reyna had no intention of stopping his practice of giving preferential treatment to his campaign supporters and friends,” Davis said of his departure.

“Both me and Michael (Jarrett, who left the same post as 1st Assistant DA on May 1) warned Abel about his cronyism, doing favors for political contributors, and we told him he didn’t owe anybody anything except to operate his office properly,” Davis said.

Jarrett now works for Texas Farm Bureau.

Though the set of alleged facts in this investigation is different, the whole thing has its parallels to an investigation 32 years ago by both state and federal officers who were intent on bringing down the McLennan County District Attorney.

In early 1985, then Feazell was on a mission to prove that state police had railroaded an East Texas drifter into taking credit for an amazing number of murders all across the country and that Henry Lee Lucas hadn’t committed more than about two.

Two’s bad enough but Texas Rangers would have you believe he’d killed 200, 300, even as many as 600 people over a number of years, helped along by his partner henchman Otis Toole.

“There are similarities between my case and the one Reyna faces,” Feazell said.

“The main difference is who is accusing him and who accused me.”

Testimony during that trial showed some local attorneys accused Feazell of giving special preference in certain driving while intoxicated (DWI) cases in exchange for payoffs.

Feazell had fouled up the Texas Rangers’ investigations into serial killer Henry Lee Lucas’ confessions by convening a special grand jury to investigate the investigators, themselves, intent on proving Lucas’ confessions were a scam perpetrated by the Rangers who provided details of the murders confessed to.

The Rangers didn’t like it and their boss, DPS director James Adams, a former top FBI guy, called in some federal favors.

During the trial agents admitted they’d bugged Feazell courthouse office and his home and he and his wife and child had been the subjects of surveillance during the investigation.

After he was found not guilty, he sued WFAA TV, in Dallas, and the station’s parent company Belo Broadcasting, and was successful in winning what then was the largest libel lawsuit award, $58 million, in U.S. history.

Since then, Feazell has been in private practice.

'It's a dead issue': Rudy Giuliani says Trump was 'unaware' of Michael Cohen's financial dealings

Rudy Giuliani

  • Rudy Giuliani, an attorney for President Donald Trump, denied Trump was aware of Michael Cohen’s financial dealings that were brought to light in a report published on Tuesday.
  • The report alleges that a firm linked to Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal attorney, was compensated for various services to major firms, including one linked to a Russian oligarch with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
  • Giuliani said Trump was not concerned about the report’s findings.

The former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team for the Russia investigation, said Trump was not aware of Michael Cohen’s financial dealings that gained intense scrutiny after a bombshell report surfaced on Tuesday.

“The president was unaware of this,” Giuliani told Bloomberg on Wednesday. “The president is not involved in any respect. It’s a dead issue as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal attorney, took some heat a day earlier after a report published by Michael Avenatti, the attorney for the adult-film star, Stormy Daniels, who is suing Trump and Cohen, detailed large sums of money funneled to a shell company linked to Cohen.

The firm, Essential Consultants LLC, appeared to have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from major corporations like Novartis, a Swiss pharmaceutical firm; Korea Aerospace Industries, a South Korean defense contractor; and AT&T, the giant US telecom company.

According to the report, Cohen’s firm also received a $500,000 payment from Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian oligarch with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, shortly after the 2016 US presidential election.

The identified companies brushed off concerns about whether their payments to Cohen’s firm were inappropriate.

“Essential Consulting was one of several firms we engaged in early 2017 to provide insights into understanding the new administration,” AT&T said in a statement. “They did no legal or lobbying work for us, and the contract ended in December 2017.”

Giuliani reiterated that Trump did not know why Cohen received payment from the companies, and said Trump’s legal team has “no reason to be concerned about it or to pursue it any further.”

Former boss of Anbang Insurance Group sentenced to 18 years in prison for fraud

Wu Xiaohui, Chairman of Anbang

  • Wu Xiaohui, former chairman of Anbang Insurance Group, has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for fundraising fraud and embezzlement.
  • Anbang was founded in 2004 and bought the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. It also has significant stakes in Chinese banks and property developers. 


Wu Xiaohui, former chairman of Anbang Insurance group, has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for fundraising fraud and embezzlement, state-run China Daily reported

Wu, 51, founded private insurer Anbang in 2004, and in 2014, bought the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. It also has significant stakes in Chinese banks and property developers. 

Wu stood trial at the Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court in March and admitted at the time that he played a role in a fundraising scheme that brought in more than 723 billion yuan ($115.2 billion) from unlawful dealings. He initially contested charges against him but later asked for leniency

He has also been accused of misleading investors and diverting 65.25 billion yuan ($10.4 billion) to companies that he controlled, and funneled funds into overseas investment and personal spending.  

Regulators seized control of Anbang in February. The company boasted of extensive ties to China’s Communist Party, and Wu himself is married to the granddaughter of Deng Xiaoping, China’s former paramount leader.

Wu had links to US presidential adviser Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, and reportedly met with Wu in November 2016, shortly after Trump won the election. 

Both Kushner and Wu are real-estate investors, and Kushner’s family business, Kushner Companies, were in talks on a $4 billion deal with Anbang last March. However, the deal fell through shortly after news broke following scrutiny from US lawmakers. 

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating contact between Kushner and foreign investors during the transition period, specifically looking at Kushner’s interactions with Anbang.

Dr. Dre lost a trademark battle to a gynecologist in Pennsylvania called Dr. Drai

Dr. Dre

  • Dr. Dre has lost a trademark battle to a gynecologist called Dr. Drai, BBC News reports.
  • Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, filed a complaint in 2015 against Draion M. Burch, saying that Burch’s moniker would cause “confusion” for consumers.
  • Burch argued that consumers would be unlikely to confuse him with Young “because Dr. Dre is not a medical doctor.”
  • The US Patent and Trademark Office dismissed Young’s case in a ruling last week.

Dr. Dre lost a long-running trademark dispute this week to a Pennsylvania-based gynecologist who was looking to trademark the name Dr. Drai, BBC News reports.

Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, filed a complaint in 2015 against the gynecologist, Draion M. Burch, saying that Burch’s “Dr. Drai” moniker would cause “confusion” in the marketplace, as Burch intended to sell audio books and web seminars using the name.

But the US Patent and Trademark Office dismissed Young’s case in a ruling last week, saying that the music mogul failed to show how people would be misled into buying Burch’s products, according to the BBC. 

Burch argued in the case that consumers would be unlikely to confuse him with Young “because Dr. Dre is not a medical doctor nor is he qualified to provide any type of medical services or sell products specifically in the medical or healthcare industry.”

He also stated that an association with Young would be “a bad reflection on me as a doctor,” citing “misogyny and homophobic things” in Young’s rap lyrics, according to The Washington Post

Burch, whose website touts himself as “One of America’s Top Women’s Health Experts,” is the author of a book called “20 Things You May Not Know About the Vagina,” and the host of web seminars with titles like “What Your Mama Didn’t Tell You About Making Babies.”

Young, the cofounder of headphone company Beats by Dre and a legendary producer and rapper, is currently working on new solo music to follow up his 2015 album “Compton.”
