Blogs–Urban Legend–Change Venue Says Attorney

Posted by Bill on December 4, 2007

An article at Law.Com, Law.Com, refers to a Tennessee defense attorney, Philip Lomonaco, Knoxville, TN, asking for a change of venue in a federal criminal case.  Lomonaco says that the Internet is the “largest unregulated source for information” in the community.  In his case, he says it has been used to outrage and taint the jury pool. 

Stephen Saltzburg, Chair, American Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section, said this is first time he has heard about blogs cited for a change of venue.  Lomonaco considers that the blogs related to his case are distorting facts and raising false allegations.

Getting facts for a change of venue are something that private investigators can do to assist in defense of cases, whether civil or criminal.
