Washington Merry-Go-Round

“Who’s on First?  What’s on Second?” It’s a feature of DC Superior Court, and perhaps with other jurisdictions for all we know, that judicial calendars rotate annually.  Stick around these parts long enough and you get to see this play out more than once. A year ago at this time, defense counsel and the government were...

Standing Room Only

Closing Night for Severance? Early into last Friday’s status hearing we learned of a letter that Joe Price counsel Bernie Grimm had sent (also on behalf of his three defense team colleagues) to Judge Lynn Leibovitz. Long described as one of the “great courtroom showmen,” DC’s very own George M. Cohan fired off this one-page letter on...

Motion: DENIED

A New Judge, and a New Playbook Despite the best efforts of Team Trouple – and a near love-letter to the bench – the defense request that Judge Frederick Weisberg continue overseeing the Wone trial has been denied. As expected, the new presiding justice will be Judge Lynn Leibovitz.  You can learn more about Judge Leibovitz here. We...

A Dear Judge Letter

Government to Judge Weisberg: “Meh.”  It’ s still undecided whether the annual Superior Court felony calender swap will bring  in a new judge – former prosecutor Lynn Leibowitz - to preside over the Wone case through the May 2010 trial.   Judge Frederick Weisberg, already 13 months into this case, indicated he was neither inclined to stay...

Purpose of this Site

On August 2nd, 2006, Washington attorney Robert E. Wone was murdered at 1509 Swann Street. Over two years passed before any criminal charges were filed - and then only conspiracy, obstruction of justice and crime scene tampering charges were brought against the Swann Street housemates, all present in the home on the night of the murder: Joe Price, Dylan Ward and Victor Zaborsky.

On May 17, 2010, a DC Superior Court trial got underway and all three defendants were all acquitted in that bench trial on those pending charges.

Nearly four years later, very little seems clear about what happened that night and who murdered Robert Wone. A cloud of suspicion remains over the Swann Street defendants who have denied any involvement in the murder of their friend or in the alleged cover up.

Judge Lynn Leibovitz found a moral certainty in their collective guilt, but not evidentiary certainty. Civil proceedings in a wrongful death suit filed by Robert's family is the next chapter in this tragic story.

We continue to work together seeking answers to the mystery of Robert Wone's murder and in finding justice for his memory and legacy.
