    Another one bites the dust. Beller is obviously in trouble He just opened his account and was raising money. Can’t wait to see his “business opportunity”. No loss anyways. Lazy ass.

    Well, that sucks. He will be missed. Here comes another Scott appointee. Who has the political connections, regardless of competency, to be a judge? Any connected white republicans looking for a new job?

      Nope… only would have gone to the voters if he resigned effective after qualifying on May 4. This is a Scott pick. That is why Dishowitz made his resignation effective Dec 31.

    Go ask his colleagues.
    As for Beller, not buying the GREAT OPPORTUNITY. Something is up. It’ll come out.

    Guaranteed Beller F’d up somewhere. Why would the dude abruptly resign March 1. Sounds like he cut a deal with the JQC. This big opportunity better be real convincing.

    Pole, Evans and Zaccor have all done very well. For you to suggest Pole was a political appointment and not truly qualified is absolutely ludicrous. He tried civil and criminal cases as a lawyer including death penalty cases. You will get excellent results with each of these judges if you simply DO THE WORK.

    There’s also the ridiculous thought that Republicans don’t appoint Black judges. ALL the Black judges were Republican appointees except for Judge Holmes. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but the facts are often forgotten around here it seems.

    This county is 50% black and Hispanic. Dick Scott has appointed 1 minority judge. How pathetic is that? So take your Republican bullshit somewhere else.

      Governor Scott’s first Broward judicial appointment was Raag Singhal. Not only a minority, but also the first Asian Anerican man on the Circuit Court bench in the history of the State of Florida.

      It’s funny that for other Governors you all consider women to be minorities in the judicial appointment context. Being consistent with the women as minorities in the judicial arena, Governor Scott has appointed several women to the Broward bench. He’s at your 50% threshold.

        And half the women judges seemed to have either drinking or drug abuse problems not to mention really nasty self important problems not least of which are problems with ever telling the truth about anything if it conflicts with their own idea of their twisted self image.
        Wrong pics for a job that is pretty easy job especially when u don’t do much but dodge any work. That’s if u don’t get wrapped up in Broward Judicial slime ! But, hey, that’s what happens when ur way over your head to begin with. Moving up the latter is a hazardous endeavor coming from the ranks of incompetent government suckers looking for a free ride in Broward County.
        Audit the work schedules of Broward judges and u get the truth about the scam to tax payers that’s encouraged In Broward Judicial Politics.
        As far as Beller: it’s a crock of crap. U can bet there’s more to the story than resigning to work for a traffic clinic. That entails work which Broward Judges avoid at all cost…

    Judge Beller will be missed. Smart and courteous and efficient. Generous. A lawyer could always use the private bathroom in Chambers to drop a deuce in a clean environment. A true gentleman.

    I think now is the time to draft lawyers who wouldn’t put their names in otherwise without some encouragement. I think Andy Coffey & Andy Smallman should put in. Excellent temperament. Bill Cone should, too. Pete Sapak, and the few decent mid-level attorneys they’ve managed to retain at the state should apply. Who else wants to throw in some names?

    Bill Gelin is a good man. He brought much needed change to all the crap that was going on around here. He should be commended.

            I wouldn’t vote for Lynch or any other wannabe judge who Seiler supports ! Seiler Smiler is in League with A-Turd, Boss Ross and the other public sliders who have made Broward the laughing stock of the state.
            Baby Lynch is harnessed to the conflict office and just wants out to suck some more at the trough like Daddy Lynch. Time to put a stop to these dynasty chasers.

    You don’t raise $150,000 for your re-election campaign and then decide to go to the ticket clinic. Especially the abrupt nature of it makes it seem suspicious.
    As for his replacement as all of Scott’s choices it will be a political butt kisser……Name one Scott appointment besides Raag and Pole that wasn’t political. Kanner? nope. Zaccor? nope. Elevated the great Stacy Ross to Circuit? Bwahahaha. Liz Scherer? Bwahahaha. Kal Evans? Pleeeaase. DiPietro? That’s the biggest joke.
    The Republican judge-making machine is alive and well and spitting out hacks………………..Just ask Kevin Tynan.

    True one does not walk away with 150K in a campaign account unless something is up. How about IF SOMEONE OFFERS YOU A JOB AND MORE THAN DOUBLES YOUR SALARY. Guess its ok to walk away from the 137K then huh? It’s a shame cause he is one of the better judges.

    BTY if you don’t like the appointed ones OPPOSE THEM! Make them earn it like all the others that actually appreciate their jobs. Remember at some point they all must run.

    Y e ah right….like a ticket clinic can pay anyone that much!! Nice try to put a spin on it.

    But you ain’t fooling anyone …clients pay $69 for representation. Do the math you tool

    I found some traffic ticket numbers for Broward County. In 2011, there were 482,621 traffic tickets written in Broward. That doesn’t include Dade or Palm Beach County. So going just by the Broward numbers, if the ticket clinic gets.. oh lets say 10% of the traffic ticket business that would be about 48, 261 representations at $69.00 a pop = ????. Now, add in the numbers for the other 2 counties. Then add in the numbers state wide. Pretty easy to see why the judge would decide to make the leap back into private practice. Any tool knows there’s big $$ in traffic tickets. Big money for the county, the state, and the guys who make the deals with the magistrates.

      Excellent post. In fact, about four years ago The Ticket Clinic (Florida) handled it’s one millionth ticket. At $69 each that’s $69,000,000 in revenue over the 25 years they had been in operation at that point in Florida alone.

      Most posters on this blog have no idea what the word history means. The Ticket Clinic back in the day was also known by many as Gold & Beller. The judge is just going back home.

      So you’re not the sharpest tool in the drawer, ok.

      400,000 traffic tickets/year total written in Broward. A portion of those are equipment, tags, things few people would hire a lawyer for. Then there are all those people pay on or just go pro se , or hire one of the hundreds of other lawyers out there doing tickets.

      So be realistic, Mr. Spin. If half of all the 400,000 tickets are those which get lawyers hired (and even that’s a big assumption), let’s use your figure of 10% go to the clinic.

      10% of the 200,000 tickets = 20,000. At $69 a pop that’s (let me round up to 70 to make it easier) 1.4 million. Oh then there’s the overhead (advertising and staff and office space). Oh and you have to pay 4 or 5 other lawyers (Rosenberg et al) for their lawyer work … yeah seems like that 135k from judging will be hard to meet!

    I don’t know, but I do know & use various ticket lawyers tri-county to cover my ticket cases & I don’t see any Rolexes. I can see the Marc Gold (Ticket Clinic) owner(s) being rich but who else in administration on down can, or would, make the big bucks? Far as I can tell all but owners of the largest ticket firms eek out a living like the rest of us. And in my 30+ years I have seen less than a handful of jurists voluntarily resign, so whatever the story is it should be interesting.

      Well you better keep “practicing” law then, because your lack of observance shows you suck at it and need some serious work. Your clients probably have no idea what issues you miss on their cases since you don’t even keep up with the judges you might appear before. In the last few years alone, just in Broward we have had numerous voluntary judicial resignations.

      Beller, Dishowitz, Cowart, Von Tefs, Greenhawt, Tobin, Tescher….the list goes on.

    He is going to be CFO of the entire operation. That’s countrywide. He’ld be a fool not to take it. This is exactly what it seems, a business opportunity.

    Mark Gold is a genius,…who wouldn’t hire a guy as CFO who last practiced law prior to the Internet and hasn’t been involved in the ticket business in almost 20 years.

    Traffic tickets are big money makers for the folks involved. We have so many of them that we have to hire magistrates because the county court judges could never handle the case load. The Ticket Clinic has done a phenomenal job of marketing itself. In a state with over a million traffic tickets a year, the will be the dominant force. Heck, they already are. Now, they’re going to be like ZZ Top.. nationwide. Business is only going to grow. Smart move by Judge Beller. He’s gonna make a ton of money. Hard to believe there’s so many jealous haters here.

      Some would say Beller is only good enough to handle a parking ticket … Just saying. Not falling for this one ! Lol

    Nobody quits a cushy judge job (they practically do nothing in Broward and that’s if they come to work). Not falling for this line. Traffic clinic ? Yeah, right ! Beller’s always been pretty dense but not that dense. What’s wrong with the judges in Broward anyway??? They’re either coming to work drunk or drugged or making up stories like this ! LOL

    Spechler made his mark on the Broward bench as a seven point depository if u ask me. His mistake finally was with messing with CJ Tobin who went a long way towards cleaning up the political judicial morass that Ross and Company had created while the rest of do nothing Broward judges did nothing !!!

      Cohen a top notch attorney ? Now that really is pretty funny! That wagler me thinks would have problems negotiating a bag of noodles !!! He’d do better to stick to the joke called BACDL where he can think he stands out as important among that nest of judge lip-smacking morons !
      Never heard a guy honk his own horn as much or as hard as this punk !
      Makes you think he’s got mommy problems ! LOL
