I Recognize That Name
An otherwise mundane fraud case out of the Southern District of Florida caught my eye because of the name of the prosecutor. The case involves a rather straightforward check-kiting type scheme involving multiple accounts at a brokerage firm resulting in a loss of over $200,000. What I noticed was the following sentence near the end of the press release (here): "The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Hugo L. Black III." A heck of a good name to go into court with. (ph)

He is the grandson of THAT HB. He's been a prosecutor in Miami for a long time, and is well respected in town. In fact, he just applied for an open seat on the 3rd DCA (a Florida appellate court).
