The chapter deals with income tax evasion, including beginning discussion of the high-profile Wesley Snipes prosecution. The chapter then turns to Medicare fraud prosecutions. The changing nature of organized crime activity in Florida is the next subject covered in the chapter. The employment of “crews” and how they were prosecuted in the Middle District is included. Next the chapter turns to environment disputes, especially plaintiffs’ actions against large-scale developments considered to be outside federal guidelines. Issues such as manatee protection, protecting wetlands, and massive developments that violated existing rules and generally threatened the environment were often before federal judges. Middle District judges adjudicated endangered species questions as well. Finally the chapter turns to bankruptcy in the Middle District Court from 2000 to the present and a number of new additions to the Bankruptcy bar are featured.
