On June 14 in 1930, Dade County Circuit Court Judge Paul Barns granted Vincent Giblin’s dismissal motion on the “padlock” suit against Al Capone. The motion ruled that the state had not proven that Capone’s Palm Island mansion represented a “nuissance” to the community.
On the same day the nuissance suit was dismissed, Al Capone was charged with perjury by Dade County Solicitor George E. McCaskill. The perjury charge was for statements Capone made during a law suit hearing for harassment and false imprisonment against several Miami officials.Click Here to Subscribe
