The following request was sent to Brenda a short time ago via email:

“(I)t has come to my attention since posting excerpts from your SAO personnel file regarding the 9/11 incident between yourself and Tom Coleman that Tom tragically lost an Uncle and a cousin in the terrorist attacks. My question is whether or not you knew of the Coleman family’s losses when you submitted your complaint on 9/12, or at any other time during the grievance process through mediation or any other conclusion, and if you did, why you didn’t withdraw the complaint after learning of his personal tragedies associated with the event.”

If Forman responds, JAABLOG will update accordingly.  In the meantime, our sincere condolences to the Coleman family for what we now know to be an irreplaceable and staggering loss, and apologies for having to go down this road.  Once everyone learns of the Bar’s most recent actions on behalf of Brenda, hopefully everyone will understand …

BrowardBeat – Broward Clerk Brenda Forman Is Again Proven Unfit For Office


After a long delay, the SAO this morning provided Brenda’s personnel file from her secretarial days, following our public records request.  As you might expect, it doesn’t disappoint.  The whole thing will be scanned and uploaded as time allows, but for now we’ll provide a sample, given the troubling similarities between the highlighted incident and Brenda’s now discredited domestic violence claims in Brenda v. Blog.

The setting: September 11, 2001.  The SAO had just been closed due to the attack on our homeland, and Brenda let out a cheer.  Former ASA Tom Coleman got upset, and confronted Forman.  The following complaint and response was then filed by the parties:

There are witness statements from the following, while Former ASA Brian Workman’s detailed memo is pictured in full below:

David Alvarez (“Please be advised that at no time did I observe either individual raise their hand and/or fist at one another.”); Lisa Carre; Brent Curd; Andrew Deckert (“Tom’s arms were outstretched, palms up as he stated “Are you kidding me, do you know how many people are dead?”); Ginger Downs (“I would like it to be known that at no time did Tom ever raise his hands or indicate in any way he was going to strike Brenda”); Regina Faulk (“She was yelling that Tom had no right to talk to her like that and she thought he was about to strike her”); Alicia Huff; Mark Kirsch; Giuseppina Miranda (“From the sound of Brenda’s voice, she seemed more angry than afraid.”); Linda Nicholas (“I did not see him physically threaten her in any way or verbally threaten her.”); Jenny Palma; Stacy Ross (“I could not hear what was said, other than Brenda Jenkins yelling “don’t put your hands on me.”); Dawn Smith; DeShonda Thomas; Sharon Williams (“Brenda was being attacked … “).

As stated previously, the whole Forman personnel file will be posted shortly, including two reprimands made before the 9/11 incident, some positive performance evaluations, and the documentation showing that the 9/11 event appears to have been resolved by mediation.

In closing, stay tuned for an update on the bar complaint Brenda filed that the Bar is still avidly pursuing on her behalf.  Assigned Grievance Committee C and bar counsel Frances Brown-Lewis have taken some very unusual action, which will hopefully be reported on in-depth by mainstream media soon …
