Wesley Snipes may be at the April 27 dinner with the president (and 3,000 others) of the White House Correspondents’ Association, affectionately known as the “nerd prom” because it draws a wide cross section of movers and shakers from the worlds of journalism, politics, as well as Hollywood all coming together for one night. The dinner, in the Washington Hilton ballroom, begins around 7:30 (realistically 8). At the lower entrance, on Florida Avenue, the hotel permits non-guests to stand behind a rope line and watch the ticketed guests arrive. It’s crowded, and there’s a lot of screaming, but usually the Hollywood types will walk over to the “civilian” rope line to say hello. Snipes must gain approval to leave home detention.

Wrekin Hill Entertainment has picked up USA and Vmi Worldwide is repping worldwide rights to the horror/western movie Gallowwalkers, which stars Wesley Snipes, at the ongoing European Film Market, happening concurrently with the Berlin International Film Festival, where they are screening it for international buyers – the obvious goal being to sell the film to distributors all over the world, and get the film in front of paying audiences This was one of a handful of projects Wesley Snipes produced before he began his prison sentence in 2010. It was never released, although it did play the film festival circuit a bit.

Hollywood star Wesley Snipes will now remain under house arrest for the next four months in order to complete the three year sentence he was handed. He’ll be under the supervision of the New York Community Corrections Office, which oversees people in the Bronx and Brooklyn areas of New York, as well as New Jersey.

Maybe it was a conspiracy; maybe it wasn’t. Hopefully, the evidence uncovered in the forthcoming civil trial will answer some of the questions that have swirled around this case from its inception. Then we can all find out what really happened during those crucial six or seven minutes in a hotel room one year ago. wapo
For the legendary “Bronx Effect”, a racial and social divide that weighs in favor of victims from minority as Nafissatou Diallo, guarantees them more often than elsewhere the generosity of the jury for repairs. Here, in 2011, 50 complainants alone hit $ 80 million, an amount almost double that of the neighboring county of Manhattan. Enough to confirm the good word of the famous lawyer Ron Kuby New Yorkers, who, inspired by the famous quote of “Bonfire of the Vanities,” sees these juries “the best … redistribution of wealth since the Red Army.” l’Express/Google translation

The downside, however. If the rich abusing the Bronx, he hates more police and prosecutors, suspected of the worst abuses, and delivers a number of criminal acquittals (almost 47%) out of proportion with neighboring jurisdictions. Hugh Campbell, a specialist remedies for abuse of power and police brutality, could play in favor of civil DSK, citing his sufferings in 2011. This is not the first nor the last, dramatic turn of events of this case.
