How Appalling helps free innocent man On November 16, 2002, I blogged about Curb Your Enthusiasm. On May 12, 2003, a man was killed. Juan Catalan was charged with the murder. Catalan claimed that it was impossible for him to have killed anyone since he was with his dauther at a Dodgers game during the killing. The police did not believe Catalan's story and thus arrested him.

However, Catalan's attorney realized that Curb Your Enthusiam was filming at Dodgers Stadium the night of the murder. He obtained the tapes, which happily showed his client at Dodgers Stadium. Undoubtedly the attorney thought to subpoena the tapes only after seeing that I blogged about Curb Your Enthusiam. Now you understand why I give up literally thousands of dollars of otherwise billable time at this blog. It is, truly, a pro bono project.
