      Howard really showed his true self. The battle is over. Shake hands if you’re a man Howard. I figured all those taunts on here came from her but who knows/cares. She was fired for running for a public office Howard thinks belongs to him. He’s a ex coke addict & couldn’t make it in private practice. Crashed his Corvette and came limping to the PD. And a big fake.

    Surprise – surprise. Too bad Ruby didn’t win to end the incompetence that has become the PD’s office.
    She was the only candidate that told it like it is. And for this she gets canned.

    Are we shocked? Gordon said he would fire her so I guess Howie did it first. A single mom during a pandemic. Someone who handles serious cases—will Gordon take her caseload?? doubt it.

    Just goes to show you how petty things have become under Finkelstein and his cronies. Confronted with a woman of obvious conviction and a trial record to show up the rest of the skaters, she gets the ultimate thanks for your efforts.
    Very sad indeed but not unexpected.

          Ruby has tried more cases in two years than Howard has in his entire legal career.
          And Gordon, well, we all know he can’t try a case at all.

        It’s called petty and being a complete uncaring jerk. We are in a pandemic, no notice, single mom, she didn’t do anything that rises to the level of being fired. Weekes wouldn’t get in until January. At least give her until then so she can find a job

    Howard and Gordon are petty. Mad that she pointed out the obvious which is the supervisors do not have cases. Howard stabbed Al after Al had helped him. Gordon stabbed Nadine in the back when she was his bestie. They both would stab mom in the back for power. So they fired the tough, black, lawyer that dared to run against Gordon. The fact that she is a single mom and we’re in a pandemic is actually the cherry on top for them. Disgusting!

      Who gives a rats ass that she is a single mom, her and a million other women. Hopefully she knows who baby daddy is and receives support and also saved some of her pay checks. Look at a ton of lawyers trying to stay afloat with no clients or cases since March. There are thousands of single moms out there right now with no jobs because of the pandemic.

        That’s not the point. The point is this was the PD’s office and she was fired for no good reason and it was purely political and heartless. Says a lot about the idiots and creeps in charge. That’s the point.

          The “point” is she needs to take responsibility and realize her actions were not in the best interest of her family and she ended up on the losing end of the stick. I hope it was worth it but I don’t think so, you don’t screw with some ones friends or family.

            The Spvsr Elections scrutinize the financials in judicial races – can’t run w $348,000 in unpaid defaulted student loans.

            Plus the voters would learn she STILL took out a $40k car loan, shafting the taxpayers.

            She’s toast. Burnt black toast.

    Everyone always uses Broward as the example of incestuous corruption and gross incompetence. Is anyone surprised that the Public Defender that led police on a high speed chase with a trunk full of cocaine sunk Broward to a new low! Even for Broward it’s unconscionable that Howard would retaliate against an employee running against his heir by firing a single mom during a pandemic.

    1. 11

      As a single mom her first priority should have been thinking about what was best for her family not politics. When you play with fire you always take the chance of being burnt. At some point you have to take responsibility for your actions. Seriously she never gave it a thought that she was running against Howard’s heir?

          Yes mommy we are so proud that you put your job on the line to run for office. You were so smart to run around bashing people that had the power to beat you in an election and fire you. We just want you to know we don’t have a problem eating hot dogs every day and you have taught us a very valuable lesson, DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. The voters didn’t believe you, you lost a good job and in a few days no one will give a shit what happens to you.

    We in the office are with you, Ruby. This proves everything you’ve been saying is true about Howard and his sycophants. The office remains more in disarray than ever before. You have more courage than all the rest of Howard’s little bum kissers put together and your standing up with the truth about what is going on within the office tells the whole and complete story about Howard’s lack of leadership and care for the black community.
    Everyone who works here knows it and we are all looking forward to Howard stepping aside even though our faith in Gordon isn’t much better.
    We all know you will come through this and will be back on the political stage to bring the change much needed to the Public Defender’s Office in the near future. Our hopes are with you.
    Howard has made a fool of himself over and over again and he will be remembered for the disingenuous publicity seeker he’s always been.
    Look forward to you making Howard’s hand picked Gordon a one term thing of the past soon.
    Our prayers and hopes go with you !

      Yeah. Unfortunately these Black candidates are nothing special to say the least. There were brilliant white candidates in most elections that deserved to win but for BS BLM you fools. They won because black. Winners all fully outclassed. But they are black. That’s what to take away. Broward Courthouse? I call it the DMV. No spirit. No brains.

    Normally it would be against my morals to leave an anonymous post on this blog but I truly have no choice because as a current employee at the PD’s office, I am sure there would be repercussions for my opinions. It is shameful that Ruby was fired, and that it was done in such an unprofessional way. After 8 years of service to this office as a TRIAL attorney (which many attorneys are not), Ruby is shown the door the day after losing an election in a tone that there really is no excuse for. If Howard was truly upset about the comments she made about him, then she should have been terminated immediately. The fact that he WAITED until AFTER the election plainly shows how unwarranted the termination is. He clearly knew that it would hurt Gordon’s chances of winning if he fired her before the election was over. How much could it really have upset him if he was willing to allow her to continue working until the election was over? The fact that she can not even return to the office to retrieve her belongings just adds insult to injury.

    Howard’s statement on Buddy’s blog included the following statement: “It is also why I am so proud of Gordon. He took the highroad and talked about issues and change rather than personal attacks and insults of everybody and everything.” I can tell you first-hand that is not a true statement. Gordon included personal attacks in his campaign efforts, including to Former Judge Lynch and insinuated that he was a racist at a debate. When Ruby and Gordon made these comments , they were not acting as public defenders. They were acting as political candidates running for office. It is not right that Gordon is protected and Ruby is kicked to the curb.

    And while Howard did the firing, Gordon is not off the hook. It is clear that the culture of not caring about the public defenders who are in the trenches every single day will continue under Gordon. Administration wonders why the turn-over is so high. If they don’t appreciate someone like Ruby who has been a true asset to the office over the years, then they clearly don’t care about anyone else either.

    Rumor has it that Ruby’s trial partner will be handling her entire case load in a very serious trial division for the next few months. Do you think this lawyer will get a raise because the case load just doubled? DOUBTFUL. Today is a very dark moment for the public defender’s office in Broward County. I think Howard needs a refresher course on the Florida Rules of Professional Responsibility.

    Welcome to the world of politics for those of you not aware of how it works. I can’t believe you’re dumb enough to think he wouldn’t wait to fire her until after the election, what then she gets the pitty votes? I can’t feel sorry for her or any one that don’t know how the political game is played. FAIR plays no part in the political world.

    I would like to know the specific statements she allegedly made that were the basis of her firing. Looks like Howard can’t stand a little criticism and instead supports only sycophants who suck up to him. Sounds like someone else.. hmm. Where will Howard go now that he’s leaving the PD office? Maybe Trump’s White House has a place for him. He and the president seem to have the same leadership style.

    The hypocrisy is disgusting. Ruby ran on the idea of firing all the Chief’s. She spoke negatively about Howard, Gordon, the majority of the Chief’s and many attorneys.

      She needs to shut up and move on and try to find a job. A great many of us took a real dim view of her stupidity and the way she bashed and underminded authority. If she did this in one office she will do it again. A real risky back stabber.

        She just differs by having the courage and fortitude to confront the massive problems that exist within the Public Defender’s Office and not pucker up to the line of BS Finkelstein is trying to push.

          Ruby arrived in the PD like a rush of wind. A fresh sort of wind accompanied by new ideas and Howard doesn’t like it. Simple. He doesn’t approve of anything that doesn’t go thru him so he can take credit for it. He’s a classic narcissist. This latest move more than explains it.

                Ask him the last time he was even in the office after his firewall incident.

        We know that is an effort that would have to be changed in the legislature,

        Know that would be a lot of work. That’s why we asked some attorney crying about nothing to do, to maybe help out and draft some legislation to make political speech the way the first amendment meant it to be;

      Let’s be honest. Everyone knows she had a side deal worked out with Lynch. She thought she was good as long as either Lynch or she won. She got cocky like most millennials do and shot her mouth off too much. She called Howard a racist and insulted everyone in her administration and it blew up in her face. Could’ve just run a clean race without getting nasty. Instead she came off as a disgruntled malcontent. Say what you want about Gordon but he ran a clean race. Road Warrior, more like dumb ass!

          Ruby is talented and I hope she lands on her feet as well. I’m simply saying that shooting your mouth off and calling your boss a racist while secretly working with Lynch who sentenced African Americans to much longer sentences than whites makes her look like an idiot. I just hope she grows up and takes responsibility for her actions and learns from her mistake. There is nothing noble about what she did.

          Fuck that stupid petition.

          Ruby knew exactly what the consequences would be as an At Will employee, so why is she acting surprised and victimized?!

          That racist bitch said negative things about one of her PD election opponents at the Weston Bar event to the Weston Bar president (not knowing that the president was good friends with that candidate).
          Ruby has a tendency to run her mouth and it’s just appropriate that it caught up with her.

      2. 14

        I recall Ruby quoted as saying “What are you afraid of ? You are not going to stop me.”

        She is fully within her rights to criticize her employer without fear of retaliation. Particularly with the exemplary record of trials she has completed and when compared to Howard’s supervisors with little to nothing to show in the way of trial experience.
        Further, attendance records for Mr. Finkelstein could easily be obtained, if Finkelstein found that offensive and that was the reason for Mr. Finkelstein’s knee-jerk reaction and the subsequent firing of Ms. Green.

        Its and interesting set of circumstances surrounding the rather hasty firing of Ms, Green immediately falling the election and could make for good argument as to why it might have been unwise.

        Howard could easily find himself in a sticky situation should she decide to seek legal remedy on several grounds in my opinion.

          Being fired for political reasons is a perfectly valid reason.

          maybe she should seek the advice of legal counsel rather than emotional beliefs?

          hey Ruby the only reason you can sue for being terminated as an at-will employee is if you can prove there is some sort of discrimination. oh what’s that? You think being fired because of politics is a valid claim?! you are stupider than you look

    GREEN COULD FILE A DISCRIMINATION SUIT BEING A WOMAN AND BEING BLACK UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT COULD CUT THE MUSTER AND PUT FINKELSTEIN IN A SACK AND AT THE SAME TIME BRING ATTENTION TO HER QUOTED CONCERNS

      Good luck with that. Being a black woman, the race card, is not a sure win in legal matters. Bottom line is an at will employee; aka government worker can be let go without a reason. If she goes forward with this it will prove to the legal community what is already being said, she is trouble and stay clear of her.

    What happened to good trial lawyers being supported instead of whimp kiss asses who don’t try cases and sell clients down the river ? Is this the kind of representation the PD offers now ?
    No wonder why so many of us are leaving to seek employment elsewhere.
    More resignations on the way I hear.
    Ruby is highly respected among those of us that acknowledge she is telling the truth about what she espouses for changes within the PD and nobody likes the way Finkelstein fired her.
    If Howard came into the office more often, he would see for himself what has happened regarding the lagging quality of representation that has taken place. Instead he prefers for all intents and purposes not to care and play golf instead on his way out the door to retirement. Very sad for someone who has preached the opposite as Public Defender.

      What happened? I’ll tell you what happened, she thought she was a bad ass and was a for sure win, bad mouthed the wrong people and got bitch slapped down to size. Just because she is black and a woman that does not entitle her to a government job or anything else. She f**ked up, it’s done MOVE ON and learn from this stupid mistake.
