UPDATE – Administrative Order 2021-38-Temp:
As you must be aware, the courthouse community was informed today that a bailiff died. It is believed he may have passed from Covid-19, although it cannot be said with any certainty.
As you must be aware, there are many others who work at the courthouse who have been exposed, and many are out sick or in quarantine. People who are vaccinated are getting sick too, and many of them have unvaccinated children.
There have been many known exposures, and courtrooms have been cleared and sanitized. Still, the 17th Circuit Covid-19 Advisory webpage is wildly incomplete, reflecting only a single courtroom exposure on July 22nd, and no closures to date. Members of the public and lawyers not connected to any of the stakeholders’ offices are being kept completely in the dark.
Keeping the courts running safely is a major responsibility. Can you work to ensure that when any member of the judiciary or court administration is informed of a possible exposure in a courtroom, or elsewhere in the courthouse complex, including offices of the Clerk, BSO, the SAO, and the PDO, that it is immediately posted to the 17th Circuit’s website, Facebook page, and the aforementioned Covid-19 Advisory webpage?
It’s a matter of life and death.

Oh, no. Who passed?
What Courtroom did he work in????
SIZE-UP JACK – GET A PLAN
YOURE THE JOKE OF THE CIRCUIT AND BEYOND
If it is him, good riddence….this guy attempted to coerce female inmates, screwed with trials byharassing defendants in front of the jury. Made life difficult for defense lawyers and other in oconnor. The irony is, if true, he worked the sytem after being fired and years incompetence in his duties to catch it on the job (speculation)
Sorry, but if there is a God there is a special place in hell for this guy
Eddie Sanchez Memorial courtroom
Bailiff Eddie Sanchez. Contracted Covid while working at the courthouse and died.
You mean…” unvaccinated” Bailiff Eddie Sanchez. Contracted Covid while working at the courthouse and died.
Where did he get it? Which courtroom??????
How about going back to zoom you idiots! Whoever’s idea it was to reopen the courthouse in the middle of the raging pandemic is to blame for people dying. Some of us who are immune suppressed don’t even want to walk on the sidewalk outside the courthouse let alone go inside! Can you say ADA violation? All ADA lawyers send resumes!
FAIR IS FAIR…THE CLERK EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO WORK FROM HOME THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR. ITS TIME TO PUT OTHERS LIFE AT RISK NOT JUST CLERK EMPLOYEES. RIP, SO SAD
Of course Lazy Broward Judges are sitting at home too. There ain’t nothing going on in Broward Courts.
They’re being pressured about the case counts.
But the Judges are the ones who disappeared or reset things for months on end, or wouldn’t take open pleas, and refused to deal with the VFOSC’s. So what if Satz/Pryor made it difficult? Why did the Judges let it get this far?
If its not a ribbon cutting ceremony I’m way over my head …
Because the do NOT Uphold the integrity and independence of the Judiciary. They leave it up to Satz to decide for them.
Broward is Broward. Poorly managed.
I GOT DOUGHNUTHOLED BY SISTAS IN THE HOOD
A CASE OF KABUKI SYNDROME ?
I think he tries but I don’t think he’s up to it.
Tuter when he’s not slapping himself on the back is as lazy as the rest of them. Worse. He doesn’t even carry a docket.
This is now getting scary. A bailiff who most of us probably know has dropped dead. How many more have to die at that courthouse. Why do we still have to appear in person. Just suspend all jury trials until the end of the year or early 2022. What about Civil. Jury trials are still being conducted in person over there, too. Nobody is stuck waiting in jail over there. Zoom, zoom, zoom. It saves lives.
Oh please give me a break!!! A few months ago there were a million posts about the OLD BAILIFFS should stop collecting their checks because they are so old and ready to die. Now all of a sudden because 1 did you are all assuming it was do to Covid and it’s “oh poor bailiff” people are still dying from other things non related to Covid. Broward needs to figure out how all the other courts in the country are able to be operational and stop acting like we are the only place on earth dealing with this!!!! Do you check how many people have had it at the stores, restaurants, nail and hair salons, etc that you are still going to?
You have a feeble old man leading this country, the American people better wake up before it’s to late. Common sense should tell any one when you’re allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals to cross our boarders you are allowing people from 3rd world countries, many never have been seen by a doctor. Do you realize what types of disease’s these people are bringing in? Have you thought about how much it costs to feed, clothe, and the medical each and every one of these people are bleeding from our government that could be used to help our own people? He also continues to hand out government money yet every where you go they are hiring, you can’t run a country by promoting people not to work. Feeble Biden puts a moritorium on rent but didn’t think the owner of the home is going to lose the property and the renter will be out on the street anyway? Think about what this idiot is doing to this country. Did you ever stop to think the government wants control these properties? If you know anything about finances and government you have to realize this country is in serious trouble.
Thinking is not one of this chick’s strong points
She was California’s parallel to Satz.
Spew your unfounded BS about Biden.
COVID-19 is because the ethically and morally bankrupt hypocritical lying adulterer & car salesman America was stuck with the past 4 year encouraged his weak selfish apologists not to wear a mask and encouraged the to drink bleach. Then there’s the vax people won’t take because they’re told to & they don’t like to be told what to do.
People can’t stand a strong woman so they discount Kamala. Sure beats little Mikey who had to get permission from Mother or she wouldn’t be pleased.
America needs to grow a pair and leave the hospital care for those who got the vax, not those chose to do without it (aside from medical reasons). And the 13th hour quarterback are as worthless today as they have been since they destroyed what was once the Republican party.
America fired 45 & Biden is America’s President . You’re reaping what you’ve sown, apologists…..no tears for you.
I bask in the warmth of your message.
Something’s off with your history. Isn’t it common knowledge that it was the “superior” European Conquistadors who brought to these shores (in their white skin) the germs and contagion that whiped out legions of indigenous peoples?

YEP THEY DID. THEY WERE ALSO CALLED SPANISH!
Personally, I think Zoom is great. Except the judges that don’t show their faces. It seems unconstitutional. Idk if they do it in criminal .. but at least 3 judges I’ve seen in civil appearing by phone … one even watches on zoom but hides face. How can you see wtf thry are thinking.
Don’t leave out Gillespie. He never shows his fat face.
Judge Ken Gillespie is one of the most decent and brilliant judges ever, and he is ABSOLUTELY handsome. You must be a racist to have anything against such a fair, courteous, and honorable gentleman that EVERYBODY in the courthouse loves.
FAKE NEWS!!! No one likes Gillespie phony rude ass. This must be a comment from his porky the pig, ghetto JA.
WHAT DO YOU FUCKING NEED TO SEE A JUDGE’S FACE FOR? THEIR VOICES WOULD SUFFICE. It’s people like you that make the system not work, and you make life very difficult for others. You must be extremely miserable as a human being.
Show your OVERSIZED face on Zoom and shut the fuck up
Hey guys! I’m totally open to going back to court. I mean, where else could people witness the 3,000 areas of law I am an expert in while simultaneously witnessing how moronic I am?
You only have to act like you are smart, right? Like, totally.
BIG BIMBOS DESERVE ATTENTION TOO
While WPB and Miami Courthouses remain open for business, Broward Courtrooms remain empty due to the dismal organizational skills of Chief Judge Tuter and his lack of administrative skills.
And Tuter remains crestfallen over a courtroom not being named after him ? The hubris of Broward Chief Judge Tuter is pathetic.
It’s like going into battle with Jimmy Carter at the helm.
Not necessarily so. I was in front of McCarthy on Friday. The courtroom was packed, packed. The bailiff was telling people in the pews to “scoot down, or all the family will have to wait outside the courtroom”. So social distancing there.
COME OUT – COME OUT – WHEREVER YOU ARE TOOTY
ITS NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF TODAY
AND WHILE YOURE AT IT, DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN TO GET OUR CIRCUIT UP AND RUNNING AGAIN
Lee deserves as much blame as Tuter. He’s the real CJ for all intensive purposes imho.
Let me get this straight. The entire time after reopening. The entire time. There are 5 notices on the Covid 19 link for the advisory. In all this time. Something is not right here. it’s statistically impossible. Is there something we’re not being told?
Daily Dose of Right
ENJOY THE RIDE
A bailiff has died from covid contracted at the courthouse. There’s several other bailiffs sick with covid, several in the hospital. The courthouse needs to be COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN. People in the courthouse are transmitting covid to others. Rest assured when one of the almighty judges gets covid we will all see how fast they close down the entire courthouse. Bailiff Edwin Sanchez contracted covid while at work at the courthouse and most likely spread the virus to others in the courthouse. Judge Tutor and the BSO supervisors and Capt. Tianga are well aware of what is going on and are keeping it hush hush.. people are getting sick at the courthouse and some may die. CLOSE DOWN THE COURTHOUSE TUTER.
The bailiff’s should quit kissing the prisoners.
Are you jealous. Your too ugly to be kissed by anyone
Were you a “concerned bailiff” when Eddie was attempting to molest women in custody? Were you concerned when Eddie screwed with people in Oconnor and other courtrooms? No I bet you stood right at his side when he worked the union bullshit to keep getting his job back
good riddance to bad rubbish
FMD notified 8/7, Anticipated disinfecting 8/9 after hours???
At least they updated with something. Even if it makes no sense.
Broward judges aren’t holding Court anyway. They’ve been hiding out at home for over a year. Courtrooms are empty. Why are Courts in WPB open with no apparent problems stemming from Covid ? Broward always seems to have the majority of problems with no leadership and incompetent admin ? Justice has become a joke around here with Chief Judge Tuter being a ringmaster of idiots.
Bailiff Eddie Sanchez got sick with covid working at the courthouse and as result he died. Numerous other bailiffs have gotten covid while working at the courthouse and some are in the hospital. The courthouse needs to be closed down for the sake of everyone’s health and well being and their families. Judge Tuter you need to do job and close the courthouse down. Do your job and save lives. You might even save your own life.
DONT LOOK FOR THE BUCK TO STOP HERE
THIS IS THE 17TH WHERE WE ONLY TAKE CREDIT
too much secrecy
Miam and Palm Beach Courtrooms are up and running fine .. Was in WPB last week all day.
Palm Beach immediately recognized the significance and likely duration of this virus. Immediately the courtrooms were outfitted with plexiglas. There were no closures. There was Zoom too. The Judges were required to be in the courtrooms where they belonged. Judges were not deemed not essential and weren’t allowed to disappear while cases backed up and inmates suffered. Social distancing was mandated. The Judges there aren’t afraid of the Sheriff or the Sao or the Pdo. They led. Broward is a bad joke. The answer now is to hell with it and who cares who lives or dies we made a big mess and now the Supremes are on our backs to fix it even if we don’t have a plan. Its Chicken-Shit County. Always was and always will be.
not afraid…is that why Marx beat feet as soon as things got too hot to handle…she has been a train wreck putting lives in jeopardy
TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS – GET VACCINATED
BUT QUIT CRYING LIKE A RETARDED BABY👶
THINGS COULD ALWAYS BE WORSE
0/10 dry like your wife’s holiday roast beef.
BEEN THERE – DONE THAT
BROWARD JUDGES STILL CLIMB TREES
Joe Biden ‘doesn’t even know the population of the country he’s president of
SCARY. HE CLAIMS 350 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN VACCINATED SO FAR? CHECKS THE NUMBERS ON PAPER AND SAYS IT AGAIN.
THE WORLD IS LAUGHING AT US BECAUSE OF THE LIBERAL IDIOTS THAT ELECTED HIM.
Your guy LOST & is a delusional loon -> YOUR GUY!!
Your guy has not done one thing to help the blacks, the virus is at an all time high, he is letting thousands of disease riddle illegals in the country and our economy is going to fail if he keeps promoting people not to work. YOUR GUY
“YOUR GUY” is a big dumb racist. What did he do for anyone who made under $400, 000 annually. NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING!!! So SHUT UP STUPID and stay in the broke lane!!! I HATE A BROKE RACIST.
How sad is it that our government can’t figure out how to handle the homeless problem in our country, leaving thousands of people to live on the streets. These are legal citizens born and raised here, many have served our country in the military fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam where they obtained their disabilities. While they are forced to live on the street our feeble president thinks it’s ok to let thousands of illegals in our country providing housing, food, medical and jobs? Why are we even acting like we have boarders and paying for boarder patrol? Am I the only one that thinks Biden is really screwed up?
WITH THESE HANDS
Hilarious, however Biden is so old his head should be on an old shriveled up dick with saggy balls. The only thing hard on him is his arteries.
Funny, looks a lot like Satz witha wig.
Funny to see that some of the posts on here are being removed. So much for freedom to express ourselves. I guess that we can express ourselves as long as the moderator or whomever agrees with what we post. Otherwise they delete it. Isn’t that called Censorship.
Start your own blog or quit whing.
Really? Problem is that Gelin has stated in the past he does not moderate this blog, therefore he is not responsible for what anyone posts.
Daddy paid off the moderator so these meanies wouldn’t talk about his little girl. Gosh, I’m so special.
So when are the bailiffs going to start their long paid vacation when the courthouse closes down again. Asking for a friend.
How can the government force the vaccine on any one yet say abortion, which is killing an innocent baby falls under “my body my choice?”
Hey, you can’t smoke a joint either, even though it is your body.
People need to wake up to these double standards.
Let me get this straight. the Government should be able to tell a woman what she can do or not do with her body but not tell you to get a vaccine. Hmm, what a conundrum…
The government should not let a woman kill an innocent baby because that’s not her body being ripped apart and the brain being suctioned out. If we are going to kill babies with the “my body my choice defense” then it’s my body and my choice if I take a vaccine.a woman’s right to choose should be before she gets pregnant by having unprotected sex.
Someone loves Me AND Lilas for blocking these mean people. Thanks, Bill!
Like hi guys, it’s Marla aka Shorty. Daddy $$$$ gave me that nickname and I bet you can’t guess how? This message will certainly self destruct because Bill censors anything that involves Shorty or Daddy $$$$.
Every piece of scum in Broward looking cheap legal representation loves Shorty, it’s not just Bill.
Hey guys it’s Tony posting here as Lilas and Marla from my FPL bucket making sure South Florida is Hurricane ready!
Don’t get your boxer briefs in a wad. Some women know how to run a successful law practice that’s not out of a coffee shop.
Noted! Thanks for the humbling comment. Now crawl back into your bucket and let your wife dictate what to do Tony.
When you fail at family law, all you have to do is become an expert in every other area! My ‘Super Lawyer’ title says so.
Like, geez guys, it’s not that hard!
Everyone loves me! I’m so full of myself. Bill must be on vacation because my haters post with impunity.
Love, Marla & Judge Nina
WITH OR WITHOUT A HUBBY – SOME BIMBOS MAKE IT BIG AS A BROWARD SLUDGE
I MEAN JUDGE
4/10 not a hard worker.
that extra 20 she put on over her term was probably why David traded her in for an improved model
SHE LOOKS GOOD TO ME
6.5 on a good day, but compared to the other trash in the courthouse, 9.
BEING CHIEF JUDGE OF A CIRCUIT IN CRISIS SHOULD EARN YOU CERTAIN PERKS SUCH AS A COMMEMORATIVE COURTROOM
JUST DONT LOOK FOR LEADERSHIP
