A problem many of my custody clients struggle with is what to do when the litigation is over. We've amassed volumes of material about the other side, fortified our own position with evidence, exhibits, and witnesses to show how we meet the needs of the children better than the other parent possibly could. And then it ends, either in a negotiated outcome of an order and decree from a judge. But it is over and time to get back to parenting.
It is unethical for an attorney to use Facebook to deceive someone. That's the short version of the lesson to be learned from the case in which the Drug Enforcement Agency just settled a lawsuit. The DEA concocted a scheme in which they usurped a woman's identity and posted on Facebook as her for several months in an effort to catch other drug offenders. It cost them (or us, the public) $134,000.
A DUI can happen to almost anyone who makes a series of poor decisions. For instance, what happens if you spend an evening drinking, drive home, park in front of your house, and find yourself too intoxicated to get out of your vehicle? For most people, you'd spend an uncomfortable night sleeping it off in the front seat. For a Billlings, Montana woman last week, things ended a little differently.
