Defendant doctor Sandeep Kapoor’s attorney requested a judge drop the charge of co-conspiring with defendants Howard K. Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich to ply the late Anna Nicole Smith (ANS) with an abundance of deadly pharmaceuticals. Kapoor claims he was prescribing pills to ANS before he met Eroshevich and that he later refused to sign a prescription list Eroshevich handed him. He purportedly used a pseudonym for ANS’ prescriptions, but claims this act of “protection” should not constitute the charge of obtaining drugs by “fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.” Should the judge grant his request Kapoor still faces other charges, such as prescribing, administering, or, dispensing a controlled substance to an addict. The trial is slated to begin Wednesday, August 4.
Actress and advocate Janine Turner has taken on the noble cause of educating America about the U.S. Constitution and its impact upon all citizens. Today marks the beginning of a campaign called “90+90=180”. The goal is to have Constitutional scholars read the U.S. Constitution (for 5 days) and 85 Federalist Papers within 90 days in parallel with blog articles and reader comments/questions about their relevance in our daily lives. Lady Justice is excited about this project and encourages everyone to join Janine and her daughter Juliette in this quest for understanding the Constitution, drafted from key writings such as the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers. I will be posting a couple pieces regarding some of the Federalist Papers and also invite your thoughts. Here is a link to the website: \”Constituting America\”
