    Why didn’t they go after Destry or Rosenthal after the JQC finished them like the JQC did to Gina??

          During the JQC proceedings, Hawkins was represented by Bogenschutz. The JQC action ended when Hawkins resigned from the bench. Now that she’s just a lawyer, this is the Bar picking it up from where the JQC left off. Hawkins’s lawyer for the Bar proceeding is Brian Tannebaum. At least, that’s who the Bar served the complaint on.

        They went after Contini, Watson and Gardiner. Has nothing to do with “complex(ion)” as written above. It has to do with the Richard Nixon defense where the cover up is as bad or worse than the original act.

      After losing a primary election, respondent resigned from the bench and the JQC proceedings were dismissed prior to a hearing taking
      place.

    The proceeding has become farcical, overseen by a judge who is out of her depth and steered by a former state attorney who can’t let go of the case. It is not showcasing justice. It is showcasing the dysfunction of Broward County.

    The proceeding has become farcical, overseen by a judge who is out of her depth and steered by a former state attorney who can’t let go of the case. It is not showcasing justice. It is showcasing the dysfunction of Broward County.

    On Monday of last week, both the prosecution and defense team accused Scherer of making reversible errors in jury selection. Without questioning them, Scherer dismissed 11 potential jurors who said they could not follow the law. Then on Wednesday, Scherer reversed herself.

    The only thing worse than an agonizing, six-month trial to determine when Cruz will die in prison is the prospect of another one. Scherer’s mismanagement raises the chance of that happening.

        .”It is showcasing the dysfunction of Broward County.”

        Nailed it. Like naming Tuter Best CJ Ever.

          Honestly I’m glad she’s the one in the spotlight. Let the MSD families rise up against her next time she’s up. Daddy might make sure her war chest is full, but angry upper middle class parents of victimized children don’t care about that. It’s our only shot of getting rid of her. (She’s gonna read this comment and then mysteriously she’s going to take a leave of absence for some undisclosed health issue and someone else is gonna take her place. Just watch).

            JT should move her. She should be exposed but it’s not decent on something like this.

            Mismanagement of the trial in the midst of a divorce…? And her dad still bought his little girl (in her 40’s) a house in Victoria park. She cant manage her own bills, life or world- why would anyone think she could manage this?!

            Is this full on mid life crisis?

            This is exactly what happens when u put a bimbo on the bench. She’ll spend most of her time trying to cover her own azz. She’s not doing very well at either dispelling the fact that she’s a clueless bimbo or that she’s capable of covering her blunders.
            This was an unmitigated mistake from the beginning allowing her to try a case of this magnitude when she lacks the experience necessary.
            I’ve been told she only tried one case when she was with the SAs office, so why other than the notoriety and publicity is she attempting to hear this case as a judge? Despite daddy’s clout, this may well spell the end of Liz Scherer’s career as a judge in a place already known for its poorly performing judges.

                She’s handling it very well. We don’t have another Anna Nicole situation here with you know who. The media has long forgotten about this case.

    Feel a little sorry for Liz. She’s obviously over her head with no one advising her how to proceed. She’s caught in a trap of her own making.
