BOGEN ON TUTER

Mark Bogen, the County Commissioner sponsoring the Jack Tuter courtroom naming proposal, took the time to speak with us a few minutes ago.

He believes the Chief Judge deserves the honor because he has had an outstanding legal career, has done a great job as Chief Judge, and as the main engine in getting the Ceremonial Courtroom built, deserves to have it named after him.

Bogen stated he has never appeared before Tuter as an attorney, and that his law firm, Bogen Law Group, has no pending cases with Tuter presiding. Additionally, when asked why an exception would be made to the Broward County Administrative Code to name it after a living person, Bogen pointed out that the Commission has recently made other exceptions to the traditional naming policy to allow honors for living persons, indicating this is hardly a novel idea.

When asked whether the buck stops with Tuter as the Chief Judge of a circuit with so many highly publicized problems over the years, and, more specifically, as to whether the boss of the 17th Circuit bears any blame or responsibility for the egregious lockdown conditions inmates are still enduring due to the extended closures of the criminal courts and the lack of more than three in-custody dedicated Zoom links roughly fifteen months into the pandemic, Bogen stated he doesn’t have enough facts on these issues, but doesn’t believe Tuter deserves the criticism, and that blame shouldn’t be put on him for these types of problems.

So there you have it.

Stay tuned for public comment at the upcoming County Commission meetings …

    Um, if he’d had a so called outstanding legal career, why’d he go for a judgeship? His disclosures as I remember show he doesn’t have much financial resources. Unless he gave it all away, of course.

          No doubt to cut loose dead weight. When they cant make it in business, its off to politics to get the public to pay the loser’s way. Tuter certainly has never had what could be considered any kind a stellar legal career. For most of it he’s mooched off the public dime and done a poor job of pulling his own weight.

      That’s not lettuce on his uniform. It’s not a bathrobe he’s wearing. It’s called achievement. The kind of thing naming rights go along with everywhere but Bathroom County. Floriduh.

    I couldn’t get Babyback elected judge either. Pop goes another weaseling little Broward Judge who sucked it for all its worth, came back and tried to suck at it again, and now can’t even get some kiss ass to buy him a Biggie Coke.

    I get it. Judges (some of them) are addicted to accolades, baubles, whatever. It’s about the money. They make squat. The power goes to their brains, but they’re broke compared to any decent attorney. They feel inadequate. The power elite that actually runs everything and makes the real money coddles the Judges and appeases them with the plaques and baubles. It keeps them in line. It’s been working for 1000’s of years. Stop the whining already. It’s the system.

      Seeing deserving people without political muscle passed over is the hardest part. It may be the system but it doesn’t make it right.
