Morning Juice: Court Battle Brewing Between South Florida's Wealthiest Disgraces

Here's what's happening in South Florida this Tuesday morning:

  • Disgraced Palm Beach mega-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein has filed suit against disgraced Broward mega-millionaire Scott Rothstein based on reports the latter attracted investment dollars by fraudulently claiming to have reached a cash settlement with teenaged victims of Epstein's erotic massages. [Palm Beach Post]
  • More than a month after the Rothstein story broke, Daily Pulp remains the place for big scoops. Yesterday, Bob Norman posted an interview with the man who acted both as a Casablanca tour guide and as an unwitting (he claims) accomplice in Rothstein's effort to launder money. [Daily Pulp]
  • Defense attorneys called witnesses Monday who testified to a history of sexual abuse suffered by 16-year-old Teah Wimberly, facing murder charges for shooting classmate Amanda Collette. They're trying to establish not guilty by reason of insanity. [WPLG]
  • Former Broward County Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion gave a statement late Monday about his plan to plead guilty plea to federal money-laundering charges Thursday. [Miami Herald]
  • Thanksgiving massacre suspect Paul Merhige is still at large, and now the family of the victims is using Facebook to help in the search. [WPBF]
