CFACDL April Luncheon featuring Fritz Sheller, The Pulse Trial: Lessons Learned

Don’t miss our very own Fritz Sheller speaking on what it was like to defend Noor Salman who was the wife of the Pulse shooter. Noor Salman was found not guilty of aiding and abetting the attempted provision and provision of material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Fritz will walk us through his experience in defending an unpopular defendant and the difficulties dealing with the government attorneys and discovery violations. The government’s case relied heavily on a 12-page written statement that FBI Special Agent Ricardo Enriquez wrote down for Salman the day of the shooting. During the testimony from the government’s witnesses, some of the statement was discovered to be factually impossible. Salman’s defense team continued to poke holes in the statement with computer forensic and false confession experts, suggesting that Mateen attacked the Pulse nightclub as a last-minute decision. Scheller and the defense team were able to show that Salman was not a cold and callous woman and that she is a kind woman with an extraordinary soul.
