AO UPDATE

BACDL met with Jack Tuter yesterday, and sent the following email after the meeting:

Earlier today, BACDL had a meeting with Judge Tuter to discuss our letter regarding Judge Scherer. Judge Tuter informed BACDL that he will take our concerns under advisement. Obviously, given the recusal motions, this is a fluid issue. As we all know, division movement typically takes place at the beginning of the new year. We will discuss this issue and any other available options at our disposal at our next meeting.

As far as the AO is concerned, it was expected to end up in judicial mailboxes yesterday. It should most definitely arrive today, unless there’s been a major, last minute re-shuffling.

Regarding Gary Farmer, we’re told he is coming to the criminal division

      Judge Elizabeth Scherer may have made
      a mistake hugging some of the prosecutors
      and the Parkland victims’ family members
      after the sentencing when the case was
      over. But earlier it was not a mistake
      to shut down Gordon Weekes who showed
      up at the televised sentencing and said
      In front of the Parkland families that
      “no one in this courtroom has endured
      what the defense has endured”.

        Figures Weekes wanted to go sidebar. He’s dodged any public responsibility for anything his entire career as an Asst. PD.
        Why would he want to change now. He’s a backroom splint with little or no talent as an attorney or administrator. He thinks hiding under his desk and remaining as lazy as they come somehow pulls the wool over everyone’s eyes.
        I think his last little performance may well have assured he will be a one term Public Defender when big money and some real county-wide grass roots organization turns him out of office !
        I was embarrassed for him. He obviously made a huge and unnecessary mistake intruding himself into this trial where he had no place being, all for the sake of getting in on a little publicity.

          Regardless of what the elected public defender was doing there and what he was saying, the trial judge was way out of line and out of control to speak to him in that manner. A short sidebar would have prevented all of that . The victims and their families lost the most but some of what they were permited to say attacking the defense was outside the llimits of what the law permits. The judge should have diplomatically asked them to avoid attacks not permitted by the law.

              It is good to remember that The Public Defender’s Office is still in a state of transition from the mess Finkelstein left it in.

          We don’t need more politicians in charge of the judges. We need someone who will honor the separation of powers and keep the courthouse above the politics. Of course, that means no names on courtrooms or pictures on walls.

        Agreed. We have so many shit judges- either political or just fucking brats. Between the men who think they are important and the women who want to be someone people care about -it’s a shit show.

        When Kaysia almost beats a sitting judge of a long time… it’s bad. Seriously- a lawyer who has been arrested almost beat an incumbent. Although rumor has it she is thinking of running against DePrimo or Hilal in the next race since they can’t seem to keep their mouths to themselves. Funny thing is it’s really everyone who is talking about all of them all of the time… no one thinks any of you are attractive or intelligent- move on.

        And honestly- against either one Kaysia will likely win. Did we really elect these people??? Being a lawyer sucks sometimes…Jesus.

          Can we do any worse than the judges we have in Broward though ? That’s the real question. We have so many lazy bunglers sitting on the bench in Broward, it’s obvious that contenders are just cherry picking from a long list.

          Honestly, I hope so. Not that I would ever want Kaysia as a judge but it’s time that these petty women get their asses handed to them and actually have to work for their titles.

          I’ve been in front of DePrimo already and she is entitled, doesn’t know shit about the law and frankly just a bitch- my colleagues have the same sentiment. Her behavior at these little lunches and events is all fake- you can see right through her incompetence and insecurity.

          What happened to intelligence and class in the courtroom?

            They all try and hide it so much that it’s obvious. The DePrimo, Di Pietro, Hilal, Scherer, Blackmon and Weekes club is pathetic. So fake and transparent. But it’s more frustrating that other people don’t see this shit…they don’t do shit until they get an opponent and then all of the sudden they start showing their plastic awful faces everywhere. It’s kind of sad. At least Kaysia is running against DePrimo and/or Hilal.

              Natasha Deprimo finna change her name again to “Tasha” for the black voter flyer.

              During one of the debates couple years back ‘Tasha’ lied and said she had landlord tenant experience.

              Bitch ain’t never rep’d a landlord nor tenant.

                They are all lying pieces of shit. Period. I’m really getting sick of having to appear in front of them and then educate them on the law. Too worried about doing their makeup before they go into court (yes, you Liz…with your makeup mirror in your chambers…😂)

                  DePrimo being on millions of BLM flyers won’t help next time I’d think. The county was voting based on race 2 years ago. I think putting incompetent people of one race is going away.

            Whether it is Kaysia or someone else…now that COVID is over it is guaranteed these bimbos will get an opponent. So many of these dummies got a pass last time…Not even good at faking intelligence and charisma!

        Gary Farmer Sr. is a lying scumbag criminal that needs to be locked up for life for covering up for shatz’s crimes by ignoring instead of reversing them. Now we have a continuing farmer infestation.

    Harold,
    Please be more mindful when bringing back dead weight to the office and starting them off at a pay that exceeds most of your senior prosecutors and more than most of the homicide unit makes. When you reemploy an asa, do your homework. Look at their performance when they were in the office. Your decisions are random and insulting to the rest of the office that has worked for the SAO for 10 plus years without leaving to do something better. You wonder why you’re unable to retain attorneys. Shame on you.

      Don’t take for granted the team members that have been working hard for years and years. God has gifted the team with a diverse staff of assistants, attorneys and support staff that have been loyal to the cause. Don’t spit in the faces of those who have earned their keep. Have a blessed week.

      Who cares what homicide makes? Only the homicide prosecutors think that homicide is some elite force. Homicide is a joke filled with girls cos-playing as law and order lawyers. Literally cos-playing because I’m pretty sure whatever buckelew and pascale are doing is straight costuming. They don’t work, they cherry pick their cases. If they don’t think it’s open and shut, they send it to ccu and everyone knows it. I can name 10 regular line prosecutors off the top of my head who are better lawyers than anyone in homicide. So please, when you’re trying to underscore the pay disparity, don’t point to homicide as the elite who should be getting paid more. They’re lazy and they’re not good lawyers. (See: how many mistrials has Katya caused this month?)

          Lol, “everybody wants to be us.” Hahaha—had to be Katya or the one with the stripper name: Alix Sage. Like cmon. No sweeties. HTU was respectable when we were baby lawyers. When real lawyers were in there. Then that idiot hornball filled it with chicks he thought he could sleep with. Those girls let him think he could hit, for a chance to be in HTU, and finally think they could be respected for something. Except they didn’t have any of the ability, knowledge or experience. Fast forward and now they’re all that’s left and the good lawyers are gone. HTU is a joke now honeys. Nobody wants to be you. You wanted to be you ten years ago. Now you took it over and ruined it. You didn’t rise to it, it lowered itself to you. HTU is nothing now. And you’re deluded.

              interesting…. only commenting on women. You must be a catty mean girl yourself. Did you crawl out from under a rock? Pascale and Alix are probably the 2 best dressed prosecutors in the office. HTU, as well as most units, work their asses off. Next time you have a tech warrant question- don’t ask Alix. So sick of the mean girl mentality. GROW UP!

      I believe the short version is dispose of these fuckers or they will fuck you up the ass, in the end. Doubt you will make it to another term–you violated to campaign oath to prosecute your dirty cheating ASAs. You made no difference and never will–and being black can’t sell it.

      Broward Democrats will vote for literally anyone who puts a “D” in front of their name.
      This guy was a registered republican for years. He was hand picked by Deathsantis.
      He switches to Democrat and glides to victory with the support of the party faithful.
      WAKE UP BROWARD DEMOCRATS- the republicans are playing you for fools.

      Its become like welcome to Tootyland for much of the Broward Courthouse. Tuter remains unabashed at honoring himself without any of the implementation of improvements like judicial accountability so desperately needed in the 17th Circuit to backup his Tuter Trumpeting.
      Its not anything lost on Tallahassee or the rest of the state. He’s become an embarrassment. It’s long overdue for Tuter to pack it in and slide on out. Broward deserves much better than this clown.

      Judge Weinstein was the best Chief we’ve ever had. His political contacts and natural abilities ensured it. Judge Farmer is similar in style. He’s effective in his relationships and has natural leadership abilities. I am urging all of us to support Judge Farmer for Chief Judge. Judge Tuter has had his time. After the Cruz debacle and self-aggrandizing behavior of late? He should be retired. We need Judge Farmer.

        The problem will be making what’s a ‘whisper’ campaign into a movement. How, without getting vindictively treated? Gary is the only one that can fix the mess. But everyone is afraid. Surely, tired of being embarrassed. Tired of being lorded over. But scared.

    If Gary Farmer is the best you got, then your in trouble. A double talking politician. I met him several times, shook hands and spoke. Afterwards, I felt the need to take a shower.
    Something didn’t seem kosher.
    But that’s Broward County Courthouse. Or should it be called outhouse.

    Tuter has a sad habit of patting himself on the back way out of proportion to any accomplishments he may have had anything to do with. As a matter of fact, none come to mind.
    It’s not only in poor taste, it lacks any character.
