Law Club Luncheon 3/30/18 - A Fine Old Whiskey:  The Murder-by-Mail Slaying of Josephine A. Barnaby @ The University Club | Denver | Colorado | United States
Join the Law Club on Friday, March 30, for “A Fine Old Whiskey: The Murder-by-Mail Slaying of Josephine A. Barnaby” presented by Frank Gibbard.

This presentation, which is based on a July 2010 Colorado Lawyer article, will delve into the fascinating story behind Graves v. People, 18 Colo. 170, 32 P. 63 (1893).  This case was the first documented “murder-by-post” case, and was as legally complex as it was factually interesting.

Join our presenter as he walks us through the trial and appeal, focusing both on the evidence presented and the parties’ trial strategies. This presentation also will discuss the evidentiary issues that featured prominently in the case, as well as the impact that the modern Rules of Evidence would have had on the trial. Don’t miss this trip back into Colorado’s legal past.

Frank Gibbard is a staff attorney with the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.  He also serves as secretary of the Tenth Circuit Historical Society and frequently writes for the Colorado Lawyer about Colorado legal history.

For this lunch, we will be applying for 1 general CLE credit, and the cost to attend is $30. Please register by Tuesday, March 27, by 12:00 p.m.
