Casey Anthony Blog Getting Notice

Our recent blog post on the Casey Anthony jury verdict has gotten a lot of attention in legal and media circles. In addition to the item turning up on Twitter and other social media outlets, it also earned coverage in The Dallas Morning News and has been circulated among attorneys through their personal email accounts throughout Texas and across the U.S.  Last week, a commentary on the same topic written by TCLE Executive Director Jonathan Smaby was published by the Detroit Free Press. Click here to read the entire commentary on the newspaper’s website.

It is difficult to combat lies and misinformation. I am glad that Texas lawyers are making the effort.
Mark Twain's prescient comment about this anticipated by decades this age of Twitter, Facebook and the internet:
" A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
