There has been some speculation that Max would run for Joe's old seat in congress, but he has denied any such plans. Max intends to write a book about his experiences as a Philadelphia prosecuter.

Recently a team which included Max, found what is believed to be part of the wreckage of several French warships and pirate ships that hit a coral reef off Venezuela and sank in 1678 killing an estimate 500 people.

Max wrote the book called "Make Gentle the Life of This World : The Vision of Robert F. Kennedy and the Words That Inspired Him
