Palm Beach polo magnate John Goodman caught a lucky break- it looks like on Friday, May 3, 2013, Palm Beach Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Colbath granted Goodman’s motion for new trial based on juror misconduct. Criminal defense and criminal appeals lawyers know that such a break is extremely rare indeed. To read of an article about the defense victory, click here.

On another note, who knew that Palm Beach County was home to a rehab facility for Hollywood’s rich and famous? According to reports on CNN and WPTV. com, Lindsay Lohan is going to complete her rehab at the Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Gardens. If anyone sees Lindsay around town, be sure to give her a friendly wave!
