Cold Comfort

Plaintiffs Win the Day at Status Hearing Frigid weather and long, long lines greeted the Court Set at Moultrie on Wednesday morning.  Jurors, attorneys, defendants, media and even judges braved the cold and stood in lines that snaked around the building, some waiting nearly an hour just to make it to security and the mags. The long...

Positively 5th Street

Thursday’s Twelve Minute Status Hearing  While changing gears from the criminal trial to a civil case, the contrasts are numerous and stark. The fifth floor of the Moultrie Courthouse where Judge Brook Hedge’s courtroom is located, seems miles away from the more desperate hallways of the lower levels where Judge Lynn Leibovitz and the criminal set rule.  Downstairs, government...

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.
