2016 ELECTION UPDATE

Three incumbent judges will shortly be facing a challenge in 2016.

As previously announced, Dale Miller has filed to run against Nina Di Pietro, who was sworn in by Peter Weinstein this morning.  As far as anyone can remember, Di Pietro is the first sitting judge in Broward to receive an opponent before taking the bench.

Michael Dye has filed to run against Hope Tieman Bristol.  His paperwork posted this afternoon over at the Division of Elections.

Lastly, Sam Lopez confirmed earlier today he will be running against Mike Gates.  Rumors of Gates’ retirement are apparently not true, so let’s see if Lopez stays put.

In open seat news, Adriana Alcalde has filed to run against Betsy Benson in the county court seat being vacated by Linda Pratt

    Michael and I worked together doing security in one of the roughest bars in the Carolina’s. Never lost his cool and always had my back. If you think all judges should have quality takedowns and solid ground and pound, vote Michael “Flex” Dye

    No one knows how Nina will do in county court. If she is a good, fair judge she will get the support of the Plaintiff PIP lawyers and they can raise big money for a judge they like. If she is defense oriented then anyone that opposes her will have no trouble raising money from the Plaintiff PIP lawyers. Only time will tell. We wish her well.

      to PIP Lawyer @ 1:25, not sure this was intentional, but I do believe you paint with a broad brush when making the inference that the PIP Defense bar would only support a Judge that is “defense oriented” while the Plaintiff’s Bar supports a “good, fair Judge.” While there are bad apples on both sides of the fence, I believe the vast majority want a competent, patient, and fair Judge regardless of side. We have entirely too many judges whom seem more concerned with cutting their dockets rather than actually allowing the parties to litigate their issues in accordance with the law.

    I was a college wrestling teammate of Mr. Dye. He was one of the most inspirational and devoted individuals I have ever met. He was always the first one in the gym to get extra work in and the last one to leave. If anyone ever needed a partner to practice with or help with anything, Michael was always available. I remember at one point during the season Michael broke his arm during practice and while he needed immediate medical attention, postponed leaving the mats just because he wanted to go the extra mile to help a teammate that had a big match the following day. He is a true champion on and off the mat.

    I would like to know Mr. Dye’s qualifications to be a Judge.

    For starters, which other Judge is he related to?

    Did he go to school with and is a personal friend of the Governor?

    Is he related to a political kingpin or political fundraiser who is owed a favor by the Governor?

    Mr. Dye shall not have my support until he can prove his worthiness to be a 17th Circuit Judge.

    @ 7:05 – 1) None; 2) No; 3) No.

    @ 7:36 – The term “bouncer” is rather brutish. That is why Mr. Costa used the term “security.” Aside from wrestling and working security, I also ran cross country, boxed, practiced judo blablabla. While those alone qualify me to be Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, there is more. I ALSO play the piano and the guitar and therefore am the most qualified candidate to ever live. I strive to be well rounded.

    All kidding aside, I practiced in NC for a few years so a lot of people haven’t seen me since I’ve been back. For various reasons I’ve purposefully made an effort to fly below the radar. Everybody will have a good chance to see my legal credentials and you can go ahead and judge me from that. I do appreciate the support I get from some of my friends from the past.

    I realize there have been a song of incidents so, turning this into a serious question, here are some answers.
    1) I don’t drink;
    2) If the president and vice president have to disclose the state of their health, why not judges? I’d be happy to provide a list of all prescription medications I take;
    3) I believe all state jobs are in a “drug free workplace” so I’d be willing to submit to any kind of testing on a random basis.

    Dye has more baggage than a hotel concierge. A quick public record search show a Temporary Injunction for Domestic Violence on a minor 7/31/13 (DVCE 13-5199). Bristol is the Judge. Sounds more like a vendetta than an attempt at public service.

    “A quick public record search show a Temporary Injunction for Domestic Violence on a minor 7/31/13 (DVCE 13-5199).” – Dig deeper. There is WAY more than that. I have a colorful past. I am no angel. However, I am open about my past. I won’t run from it. With regard to that injunction, I’ll get a copy of that Petition for Injunction to Bill and he can post it. Between FL and NC, there have been about 10 motions by my ex trying to restrict access to my children. She is a frequent flyer. There was never any violence alleged towards my children in that Petition.

    Is it true that one of the reasons I am running against Judge Bristol is because I have been in front of her as a party? Yes. Why lie? If somebody is pissed off at their city councilman, he can run against him. When somebody is poor, stuck in dependency court with conflict counsel, has no access to resources, no law degree with 5 years experience…………..they are powerless and have to tolerate whatever the court dishes out. I’m not that person, I can run.

    Everything will come out in the wash and you guys get to be the judge. Audio recordings of hearings, orders, transcripts etc. I don’t have the time to put everything out there today, but I will. I’m the better candidate and that is why I am running. If somebody else comes along and believes he/she is better qualified than me. Jump in. The more the merrier.

      So let me get this straight, you think a platform based on domestic violence and the fact that you have been in rehab makes for a good judge? I think you need to run not walk to a therapist.

        0

        You suggested Dye should run, not walk to a therapist…and you’re totally right! Here’s some funny info: Dye is too good for a court appointed therapist. He continues to see a therapist who was (without his knowledge, obviously) assisting his ex wife and son with obtaining the restraining orders that are listed above. She saw him for the sociopath that he is and was of great help to them. She even spoke out against him to the BSO investigator on the case. I’m assuming that this wasn’t a violation of her ethical code, as she has a duty to report if someone is in imminent danger, which his wife and son were. Dye is nothing more than a clown who thinks he’s the ring master.

      I admire your courage to be so transparent here. But i still think you are running ‘AT’ your assigned judge because you are offended by what she has ‘dished out’ to your family in court. If you are really interested in meaningfully serving underprivileged dependency litigants, I think the first step would be advocating for them as Court-Appointed counsel in Dependency/TPR proceedings.

    Administrative non-disciplinary suspension. I didn’t turn in my application to go into “inactive” status in a timely fashion. In NC, you have to take 17 or so CLE’s every year. So it is a result of no CLE’s, dues and not filing the petition to go into inactive status on time. I will be going into “inactive” status this coming year.

      BULLSHIT!!!!! Michael Dye’s partner in North Carolina wanted nothing more to do with him. Threw cans at the man’s head for christ sake. He was one step away from being disbarred and ran to Florida. The only way Florida would allow him to practice was if he was part of the FLA for his over the top drug abuse. Thats when he parentally kidnapped his own children and then was ordered in court to return them.

I can see it now! “Despite your drug and alcohol addiction, your tendency to hit your children, your bold faced lying about your ex-wife, your association with strippers (the moral fiber of our society), your repeated licence suspensions, etc…I grant you full custody of your children…want to go and grab a beer and lap dance?”

    There isn’t a judge in Broward that actually deserves to hold the position more than one term, so my hat is off to anyone running against these turkeys. If u want the job, go for it. I wouldn’t want it if you gave it to me. Most of these idiots need it to increase their earnings and because their schedules or lack of schedules are and remain unaccounted for. It’s like early retirement for most of them. They also think they’re untouchable for their actions and the JQC validates that belief for most of them. It’s wasn’t until Gardiner and the Supreams stepped in that the practice of covering for these suckers was called into real question. I couldn’t take the blow to my rep but most of them don’t care as long as their feeding well at the public trough and we have an electorate that doesn’t give a shit and vote only by name recognition. It’s no bs, man; Broward is really a screwed-up place when it comes to judicial politics. We seem to scrape the bottom of the barrel every time. The appointment process seems to be even worse. Look what’s here. I’ll take West Palm or Miami anytime where they at least know something about the law and aren’t such political sell-outs.

    Bristol a vile human being. She routinely spits in the face of the law, litigants, and attorneys. She is not qaulified and unfit to be a lawyer much less a Judge. Michael Dye has a lot of baggage, yes, but anyone that knows him cannot deny the man is a legal genius. Many lawyers routinely turn to Michael for analysis and motions. He is as fair of a person as they come, and the definition of a straight shooter. Perhaps, at times, too much of a straight shooter. But he stands for what he stands for, and does not take out his traumas on anyone but himself. I will vote for him and dammit all of you should. Stop coming on here like little whining wierdos, and refusing to support and digging up dirt on a person who has the balls to do what none of you do; fight the machine.

        To the contrary, the person at 7:41pm does call me Michael. If you are one of my friends, please tone it down with the name calling. I have enough to get the job done without making it a nasty campaign.

        I don’t know Judge Bristol personally, but I know she is married, I’ve met her husband before, and I believe she has kids. Therefore, Man Law(tm) requires all Real Men(tm) to keep the comments above board. Keep it about the job, the cases and nothing personal.

    A licensed attorney, Mike Dye, just signed his name to a comment impugning the integrity of a sitting judge with this comment:

    “bristol…prosecutor in a black robe: OK.”

    Mike, you can’t do that. No, seriously, you as an attorney are NOT allowed to write or say comments that directly impugn the integrity of a sitting judge. One problem with it is the judge under attack has no way to respond (because they are a sitting judge). I can send you the cite to a FL Supreme Court case directly on point (Fl. Bar v. Conway), but your 1st amendment rights, as a lawyer, are checked at the courthouse door.

    Although in that case the FL S.Ct. noted the importance in lawyers “exposing valid problems within the judiciary”, you would likely face an uphill battle proving she was, in fact, a prosecutor in black robe. And, the experience from that case proved that anyone can file a Bar complaint anonymously for such comments about judges by lawyers….;

    I’ll answer these and then I will save and then I will save the rest for when I have another forum to speak. First, I checked into rehab on September 7th 2011 and stayed until the day before Thanksgiving 2011. Second, I never abused my wife or my children. On July 20, 2013, my x what is accuse me of abuse in my oldest son and call 911. The coral springs police responded and ask me to come back to the scene to make a statement. I went back to the scene, made a statement and the Coral Springs PD found that there was no probable cause to arrest me and that I had done nothing wrong. I went home. 11 days later, BSO investigator Jennifer Ferguson instructed my ex wife to file a restraining order against me else she would shelter all four of our children instead of just one. so there is a lot more to the allegations of abuse than what you may think. they were never any allegations of abuse against my other 3 children. I still have the audio recordings of that injunction hearing where in you can be the judge of whether I abused anybody. you can also be the judge as to whether judge bristol properly excluded testimony from investigating police officer who would have tEstified that a prior investigation conducted by that officer and a BSO child services investigator reached the conclusion that my children had been coached by my ex wife to make false allegations of child abuse. Judge Bristol excluded this testimony because he was not an expert in child psychology. again, I will make the audio available and you be the judge.

    among the reasons I am running for judge is because I believe that I know the law better, I believe that I will apply the law to the facts of each individual case better and I feel that I have A better temperament to be a judge.

    Thank you for your questions, I will answer all other questions of the blog at another time. I have to get to work. Thank you for listening.

      So you think spending a little over 2 months in rehab and getting out just in time to eat Thanksgiving dinner really worked wonders for you? It sounds like you think you would be a good judge due to the fact that you have more baggage than the “A” luggage carousel at the airport. Get things in your own life straightened out before you attempt to stand in judgement of the lives of others.

Nina and Hope should thank these idiots for helping to secure their jobs by prevent other more serious candidates from running. NICE JOB BOYS!

    I wouldn’t be to proud of associating ur name to Willy Wonka Weistein who has done nothing as chief judge but make allot of cheap excuses for allot of drunk and drugged up judges in Broward. Try another tack. Weinstein has enough to be embarrassed about if the guy had any shame at all. But that’s one thing you can unequivocally say about judges here: no shame and shift the blame is the game with these boobs. As long as they can suck at the public trough they consider themselves exceedingly lucky ! Most of them didn’t and couldn’t do much else. As far as Pedro No Pedro is linked to his short membership in the club; it was too long as it was. His arrogance and stupidity did him in and he still doesn’t get it. LOL. The same should happen to a number of others who think they’re too privileged to do their jobs.
    I wish Mr. Dye all the luck in unseating the incumbent. At least he’s not claiming something as stupid as the Ambien defense to official ineptitude.

      Though he does have personal experience with driving, while under the influence of Ambien, he uses much more original defenses for his indefensible actions. Things like, “He made me do it. It’s not my fault.” Gets ’em every time!

    Female voter turnout is predicted to be the highest in history next year because of Hillary. While satisfaction with the white male establishment is the lowest in history.

      Even unqualified candidates should run.
      Being a Judge is not rocket science, and JNCs and Governors have proven BRD over the years that they are more than willing to put unqualified candidates on the bench to pay back supporters.
      Bonus, if Judges are routinely challenged they may also work full days, be accessible, and pay attention to details.

        “RAISE IT” is wrong. Unqualified people should not run just for the sake of running. When they get destroyed in the election, everyone says “See You Can’t Run Against The Incumbent”. That puts a chilling effect on future elections. It feeds the myth that sitting Judges cant be beat.

    Given the recent SCOTUS ruling re social media threats, what should have been clear all along was ignored out of spite, revenge and bully like tactics by people who should have lived by the oath they took to seek justice not convictions. No intent, no foul.Mens rea and all that stuff lawyers,prosecutors and judges are supposed to care about ignored because of bruised feelings and egos. It’s been great reading, wonder if anyone with all the power gives a damn? Years ago one could share fleeting anger and exasperations face to face while emotions disappated. It’s especially interesting that the one leading the sanctimonious charge to incarcerate had years before told 2, 30 year veterans of the courthouse that “as a former hockey player, he could kick the bloggers ass” As the wind blows, tough one day, in fear the next? John Roberts got it right. Time to sit back and observe.

    The man has been accused of Rape, Child Abuse, Domestic Violence against his wife and child, Battery, Assualt, Drug smuggling, intimidating witnesses. He has been to rehab for Cocaine, Bath Salts, Crystal Meth, Pills, Pot, Alcohol. He is behind on child support and admittedly doesnt care. His own kids want nothing to do with him. He has had his kids removed due to parental kiddnapping when an emergency order to return kids to the state they reside was ruled against him. His own father has taken restraining orders out against him. He keeps an alcoholic as a girlfirend and a stripper on the side that the other girl knows nothing about. ETC ETC ETC

      Ok, let me get this straight, as long as he tells the truth about being an alcoholic and drug addict, you’re cool with adding him to the list of drunk Broward judges? You do realize that telling the truth, or someone’s own version thereof, does not a moral man make. This man is simply a bad person…whether he is truthful about it or not. The fact that he not only admits these things, but also seeks glorification for them, is disturbing to me.

    If he tells the truth then he should admit to beating his wife and child. Or is there really another explanation that there are photos from that night of his son with 2 black eyes. His son still til this day will tell you his dad beat him. What do you think his retort will be when cameras interview his son and get the story of a drugged out mad man beating his 13 year old and then not owning up to it? Two months of rehab doesn’t do anything to eliminate the underlying mental instability of a sociopath.

    BREAKING NEWS! DYE USED COCAINE!
    That’s bullshit! None of us knew that! Next thing you are going to say is that Howard Finkelstein smoked crack and Gary Ostrow got caught with coke in the airport! You have no credibility!

    While you are busy rubbing on your raging hard-on for Dye, think about this……………..this is a gossip blog about the BROWARD COUNTY COURTHOUSE. Dye has a coke problem, a girlfriend and a stripper on the side? Those are prerequisites for becoming a judge in Broward.

    Here are a few more rumors that I am working to confirm about Dye:

    1) I saw Dye use the little fork for the salad at lunch!
    2) Dye wore a brown belt with black shoes!
    3) One time…..in court…..Dye started talking before another attorney stopped and the Judge told him to let opposing counsel finish speaking!
    4) One time, Dye ate dessert before the main course!
    5) One time, Dye left the toilet seat up in the middle of the night!
    6) One time, Dye put an empty jug of milk back in the refrigerator!

    As for Dye being in Florida Lawyer’s Assistance, I hope that is true. You say it like Dye getting help and staying clean is a bad thing.

      You see “rumors” are something that cant be proven true. Dye’s coke addiction, troubles with the police, DCF, child net, etc can all be easily proven and many documents can be provided. Once this guy starts his campaign (he never will cause he only did it to get a judge recused) but lets assume he does, all this will come out. His beaten son interviewed. His battered wife as well. Emails he sent. Taped conoversations, etc.

      My professional opinion is get out whille you still can.

    Dye is a complete mess. He never intended to run for Judge. He can’t possibly win. It was simply a brilliant move to get Bristol to recuse herself from his dependency case.

I have personally seen the most powerful and influential people here in Broward walk up to her and say: “Hi Hope!”.

She is not qualified and unfit to be a lawyer much less a Judge. Michael Dye has a lot of baggage, yes, but anyone who knows him cannot deny the the man is a LEGAL GENIUS”.

    You have no money, No name recognition. No donors. No influential friends, No civic participation. No charitable participation. No award recognition. You have none of the requirements you need to run for election. You opponent has all of them.
    When you lose the election (you will definitely lose), your ex-wife will win every hearing. You will lose every hearing before every Judge. Your clients base will dry up. People will stop referring clients to you. No one will call to retain you. Your friends will avoid you and people who are not your friends will laugh behind your back (sometimes to your face). I am sure you are seeing it happen even now.

I am 100% in my rights to back Bristol as an American and tell the truth about a man teying to take a position that would control the lives of children.

      Oh I also sent him some non threatening and non abusive texts (which by the way is the first and only contact I will ever have with this man on a personal level) I have never called him, gone by his house, his office, or followed him to a public place or even have had a full conversation with this man……..but he has filed an addition to his 64 page motion for stalking violence RO that was denied without hearing in July.

      Thank you to the person above for explaining what i was trying to make abundantly clear but couldnt to a man who listens to noone including judges.

        And in conclusion this is a man that has open restraining orders on my future wife and my future step children. Open Bar Complaints (not from me) and is under close surveillance by child net, DCF, FLA, and has to adhere to numerous services. Sounds like i am the one who needs the RO

    These are interesting posts, Mr. Spatz, but they still don’t explain a clear vision for what your goals are for your 10th term as State Attorney. Please Mr. Spatz, what is it you hope to achieve if reelected and, will this be your last term if elected?

    I pulled away my anniminity. Lets see if big talker Michael Dye does the same or just hides behind more erroneous motions and injunctions and ROs and change of venues, and judge recusals?

    I recently heard that HISPANIC VOTE has endorsed both Judge DESTRY and Judge MCCARTHY. What are those people thinking? They endorsed these sitting Judges although they were lead by three criminal defense attorneys; Aaron Gibson, Lorena Mastrarrigo and the now Judge Jose Izquierdo. All of them should lose their jobs immediately since they hand first hand knowledge of how these Judges performed for the past 6 years . Is Howard going to allow one of his own to endorse both Destry and Mccarthy who are known to be the most overturned Judges and who traditionally hurt indigent defendants because their lawyers do not have political power? Did they not conduct any research on the candidates and Judges? The incompetence there is rampant. Can this be a purely political decision without regard to Broward’s citizens well-being in mind, but just to advance their own political agenda. That is why Hispanic Vote has never been able to protect the good Hispanic Judges, ask former Judges Avalos and Gonzalez. Judge Izquierdo will likely see a challenger soon and this organization has lost all credibility and will likely be useless to him when he has to run for election. This organization lacks credibility, they are a joke.

      Howard allow ? He’s got about enough political pull to fill a bottle cap. We saw the extent of Help Myself Howard when he gave us DiPetro when he tried to trash one of his own people. Now she’s a judge. Howie better be looking over his own shoulder because he couldn’t muster enough juice to make anything happen. Get your nose out of his butt buddy.
      And Hispanic vote ain’t worth a crap either. They couldn’t get their act together if their butt kissing lives depended on it.

        Who is kidding who ?Help me Howard would be working at Legal Aid right now if it weren’t for Al Schreiber giving him a job as a investigator after his drug arrest when he ran into the back of a cop car. He thanked him by shitting all over him. The truth is the truth. That’s what you got. Some big shot criminal defense attorney? Don’t make me pop a gut laughing at that one.

    I am sure that Jose Izquierdo drove the endorsements by Hispanic Vote. He is a total political whore trying to make a good old boy out of himself. Lets see what happens when he has to put his name on the ballot. All of the ass kissing he is doing right now will mean nothing.

      With a name like Jose, it might get him into Taco Bell. He worked the Governors office. This is Broward.

        She should become a certified cook. She can’t make baklava worth a crap. She doesn’t stand a chance. Looks like a middle aged bimbo still trying to remain relevant to motorcycle cops.
        She ain’t gonna get many votes wearing that clown wig. Broward has reached a new low with these comedic judicial candidates. Get a life off the public dole for once, Bren. Voters aren’t going to fall for a last name that sounds like it should treat psoriasis.

    They are attacking because they are threatened. WE know who is making the comments. The public recognizes Brendan’s talent, and therefore the immaturity of the select group of known bullies is obvious. Empty talent running scared and players with no real power.

    The same public no doubt who will see right thru the circus antics of a notorious bootlicker when she loses big time. The only thing that would have made her little act even more shameful is if she had arrived to the event on the back of a cop’s motorcycle with a Hell’s Angels tee shirt on singing Annie Get Your Gun ! LOL
    It’s a freak show out there!

    Why is everyone making such a big deal about Hispanic Vote endorsing Destry? Was anyone expecting otherwise? It is clear they are about gaining political favor to place their members in appointed positions instead of doing it the American way; through the election process. It is purely undemocratic crap. So far so good for them, they have met their goal at the expense of their own community.

    A bunch of sell outs to the highest bidder. The Hispanic Bar Association have never stood on principle for anything except self promotion. It’s for sale cheap !
    Jose aka Izzy will bask in the sunshine but for a short time until his term is up and then somebody will knock him out of that spot. He and that other loser Diaz can then cry in their taco soup together and blame it as they usually do on discrimination.

      Of course Benson. They didn’t even try to appear fair. Lorena is one of Bensons best friends and they work together at the same “firm”. PD office. They should have at least pretended to be fair and had Lorena sit this one out. Hispanic Vote is a joke. And there isn’t even a pretense of fairness or ethical behavior.

        To call the PD’s office a “firm” as if it were a law firm is absolutely ridiculous. LOL. Public Pretenders more like it.

        Last time I saw Benson at a political function she was walking around with a towel on her head begging for votes. She’s desperate to get out of the PDs office along with everybody else. The mass defections have lead to a stampede of attorneys beating feet out of a top heavy office where supervisors substantiate their big paychecks by crawling up everybody else’s back to make themselves look busy to Help Myself Howard . Supervisors don’t carry any caseload and rarely come into work or stay just a couple of hours to show their faces and then beat feet out of the office themselves as evidenced by their empty assigned parking spaces. A third of the office has left with more on the way out the door . Not looking good for morale. Mismanagement cited as one of the reasons for large numbers of attorneys leaving. Who can blame Benson for wanting to beat feet out of there?

    As a defense attorney, I find it difficult to accept that these organizations endorse people without concern for Justice. It is incredible that both Destry and Mccarthy were endorsed by the Hispanic Bar Association. Someone needs to do something about that.
