Non-Sequiturs: 06.23.11

* Robert Wone’s wrongful death case settled out of court, but no details have been released. I guess that’s the end of several years of legal drama. [Who Murdered Robert Wone?]

* Mobster Whitey Bulger was on the run for more than 15 years, but was finally arrested last night. I hope we get a movie out of this, because The Departed was awesome. [WSJ Law Blog]

* A lawyer in Texas killed a 900 pound alligator. That’s probably a cool achievement as a hunter, but all I’m thinking about is the billions of cute accessories that could’ve been made. [ABA Journal]

* I don’t know how it would’ve been possible for me to juggle law school and a family, but Keith Lee has some suggestions. Plus, I can’t juggle, so I probably would’ve dropped some balls, or a baby. [An Associate’s Mind]

* The ABA will continue to defend liberty and pursue justice, but will not advance lawyers. Good call — don’t want any false advertising lawsuits on your hands. [Constitutional Daily]

* A quick primer on how criminal defense counsel can turn it around on the police if they refuse to speak with you. The key is using their own backwards logic. [Underdog]

* Not so much legal as it is disgusting. I guess they call it Bed Bath and Beyond for a reason, because 35 pounds of biohazard vomit definitely falls under “beyond.” [NBC Philadelphia]
