    A good list. The odds are two of the biggest disgraces to ever blemish the bench in Broward shall be replaced by true honor.

    Poor Betsy
    Guess you don’t have much confidence in your ability to win a campaign and be elected Judge by the people if you are applying for an appointment from Rick Scott.

      Abbe should stop being part of the problem and part of the solution by running against one of the hinkey appointment Judges. Lob a spitball in the courthouse and it’ll hit five of them. She’s got a great name and experience and could show the legal community she’s a leader who corrects obvious problems instead of whining about them like everyone else.

    He has the right demeanor, been a traffic hearing officer, law enforcement experience, would be fair to both sides, and is an all around good guy. Unfortunately, scott will probably go with someone he owes a favor to.

      This applicant is on the Plenty of Fish dating website, check it out to get some real insight into this loser: SWM08
      Akg to him, he still has some of the “bad boy” in him…
      Just what we need on the Broward Bench….(NOT)

    Thought Benson was running ? Now she’s tossed in her name for an appointment ? How desperate is she to get out of the PDs office ??? Not that I blame her. Like rats on a sinking ship. Lol

    Always wondered what became of Gilbert O’Sullivan. Maybe he’ll wow the Jnc with a verse or two from Alone Again. A singing Judge? Why not?

    My predict: Ribas and Fry, then an African American replaces Fry in County. If Cohen is still on Scherer shit list she wasted a bunch of trees. African American should be appointed this time to Circuit given lack of diversity and Holmes retirement on the horizon, but this JNC can’t be counted on to do the right thing.

      Two real know nothings. Neither one of them have the motivation to get out of bed in the morning. And legal talent? Come on. Really?

    Rifkin doesn’t get it. There’s always going to be a Ross
    /Scherer/Di Pietro with hands out in front of her. After that some lame judicial spouse. Give it up honey!

    Methinks the DePietro appointment by Gov. “Martian” Scott over so many better qualified candidates shows how the show is run.

      Same as what happened with Stacy Ross who was chosen over vastly better qualified applicants ! And look what we’re stuck with now ! LOL

    I applaud all the hopefuls for trying. Most lawyers wouldn’t give up practices or partnerships at law firms paying 3 to 4 times a judicial salary. These people are indicating they will give up lucrative salaries to serve the public. That’s better then most lawyers will do on their best days.

      But you must not be a practicing attorney in 2015. Even a county court judicial salary would be a significant step up paywise for the majority of us, not to mention no overhead & all the perks, pension, etc. Was different 10-20 years ago, but not by a whole lot.

      Divide all the names into groups of two and then combine the two salaries and it may add up to a Judge’s salary. Get real.

    For all that money Hurley paid to get these emails out wouldn’t you think the would have the correct disclaimer?

    How do you forget to say you are running for reelection for Judge in “Broward”

    Looks like Judge Bristol and Rhoda Sokoloff also forgot to mention they were running for Judge in “Broward” on their disclaimers as well.

    Who did they hire to do such shoddy work?

      Poor old Rhoda. She’s not sure where she is. Someone needs to help her find the courthouse and then tell her why she’s there.

    Who wants to admit they are running for judge in Broward these days ? Enough said that with all the drunk and drugged up judges in Broward, nobody wants to mention “Broward” at all ! LOL.

    Funny how these relatives of supposedly powerful people line up for appointments. If the powerful people are so influential and important in the real world can’t they do better for their relatives than 150 a year?

    The same old snicker doodles lookin to suck at the same ole trough. Add up what Boss Hog Ross has wracked up, his equally politically minded daughter and now her hubby Ride it Ribas hopes to snatch and it adds up to a hefty sum. Same story. Same old Broward Judicial Politics. It would make you laugh if it wasn’t so transparent.

    Having to tolerate Dale on weekends is more than enough dues paying. Give the man his robe and a stiff drink. By gawd, he’s earned it!

      Alcalde needs to go run in Dade County. That is the only place she has a chance of winning with a name like that. This is Broward- Benson was smart in picking that race. But Benson is crazy if she thinks she is getting the appointment.

    Happy to see Paul Backman figured out it was good to not have Arlene apply and lose to the Ross family again. I wonder how young master Jeffy Backman is doing with all those Chinese drywall cases that he cancelled his previous campaign to be on the bench to handle.

    Yeah, right! Billy Back pulled out for reasons that had nothin to do with Chinese drywall. Being dumb as a stump he thought that excuse would do as well as any other. Ask Daddy Pap the real reason and watch his face turn red ! Lol
