Tennessee Waltz Techie Moves On

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2007 at 4:00 AM

A key member of the federal government's Tennessee Waltz prosecution team is leaving the building.

No, not David Kustoff, My Harrison, Tim DiScenza, or FBI agents Mark Jackson and Brian Burns. The departing member is, in a way, more important than any of them.

Mark Erskine was the man who handled the compact discs, fired up the computers, and played the undercover tapes and videos in court in the trials of Roscoe Dixon, John Ford, and Calvin Williams. The tapes, of course, were crucial to the government’s case, and it was Erskine's job to make sure they functioned on cue.

A farewell party was held Wednesday for Erskine, who is going to attend law school, according to U. S. Attorney Kustoff. He is the brother of Commercial Appeal reporter Michael Erskine.
