DBR – Broward Judge’s Contempt Order Against ‘Disruptive’ Defense Attorney Reversed (3/1/21)

Contempt Hearing! (8/1/2019)

The 4th DCA today reversed and remanded the contempt order issued by Jill Levy against Mickey Rocque. The SAO conceded Levy’s error in taking Mickey into custody prior to the hearing, and the remaining issues will now be heard by successor judge Mindy Brown. The opinion is here.

Congratulations to Mickey and Fred Haddad, who prevailed based on this bang-up brief. The SAO’s answer brief is found here.

Stay tuned for the next hearings, which may involve some interesting witnesses …
