DiBiase
“Mr. DiBiase publishes the No Body Website for the purpose of assisting prosecutors and homicide investigators in bringing justice to the friends and families of ‘no body’ murder victims,” Friday’s court filing said.
“Assisting prosecutors and homicide investigators in bringing justice to the friends and families of ‘no body’ murder victims benefits the public interest,” the filing said.
Attorneys representing DiBiase in these filings are Kurt Opsahl and Corynne McSherry of the EFF; Colleen Bal and Bart Volkmer of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (Palo Alto); and attorney Chad Bowers (Las Vegas).
