      Why is Jackie Woordward running for Judge? The era of small time ticket attorneys running for judge is over. Moreover, she is married to Phil Reizenstein who is a huge handicap to her campaign. A wild cannon in the opinion of many in the legal community. Jackie keep working on tickets my dear and enjoy your new Coral Gables home. You have no business on the bench.

    75 and dating someone in her what 20s? maybe 30s? yeah that shows the kind of judgment we want in a state attorney. unreal. maybe if he didnt have to pay for her services he could afford to give his trial attorneys raises so he wouldnt have to have kids trying homicides. How many have quit in the last 12 months alone?

      We know at least 180K is being spent on two non lawyers to do PR when homicide can’t win a case and that more than half of that unit makes less than the tweeter in chief. Someone tip off a reporter. This isn’t right.

        You have people in homicide making 67k-70k and Satz’ favorites doing the exact same job making more than double that, literally, while his twitter girl and incompetent Ishoy both make more than some of the homicide attorneys. Satz couldn’t care less though–he only cares about his 12 year old girlfriend. Must be why he didn’t mind his head of CCU Tony having a relationship with a similarly young new attorney he was mentoring.

          Or getting her into CCU while others sit without raises for years. Explain how she got that promotion when she hasn’t tried a single case without her bf? Are there performance reviews or written reasons besides the fact that it’s pretty clear Tony Loe is actually running the office? This is a lawsuit.

        No one tells Mike the truth. Half of the attorneys in homicide, CCU, and SBU are actively seeking jobs and will quit in the next year over this ridiculousness. Then you’ll have 3 year attorneys trying homicides by the next election. This will end nowhere good.

          People have told Satz, he just doesn’t care if his entire office quits. Like he said when his second in command retired after over 30 years of service, “everyone is replaceable”. Yes–he said that at the retirement party in front of about 100 people. That shows you how much he cares about keeping qualified people.

    Was the General Counsel position posted before being filled? Is this some kind of “interim” gag so they can properly post later and give it to him based on “experience”? Will Rieman go quietly into the night instead of writing a tell all book?

      There’s no more Kool Aid drunks left at the SAO. Everyone sees it. He stands for nothing except his own personal job security. He would have been beaten a decade ago by a strong candidate but none ever emerged because of misguided loyalties. Now a weak one will clip him. Don’t the honest citizens of Broward deserve for a strong candidate to finally step up and lead?

        Let’s get a wish list going. Who would you like to see run? I’ll start. I’d like to see Shari Tate (the head of homicide) run but she wont because she still works there. How about Gregg Rossman, who used to work in homicide?

  4. 4

    Rossman could win but he’s friends with Mike.

    Judge Fry would be great.

    Marine, police officer, Judge.

    State Attorney.

      I doubt a judge would run for State Attorney instead of Judge but if so, Judge Singhal would be a good fit. More realistically, who has left the SAO in the past 2 years that has the guts to run against Satz?

        1. 0

          3

          I think either would be great. Adriana originally considered running for state attorney. Don’t know why she switched to judge. But either one would be good. They both also have money. Themselves and family. Please the people of broward county need you! One of you step up!!

      1. 10

        0

        Singhal and Fry won’t shed the golden handcuffs.

        They have to resign to run.

        It has to be a former prosecutor or with similar leo background now in private practice who can point out the serious problems at the SAO without sounding shrill (Williams) or like a lefty like Finkelstein (Mancini and Williams).

        Public safety and violent crime are the issues. Both suffer because ASA’s at the trial and supervisory level are too afraid because of the office culture and policies to prioritize offenders and devote enough time and resources against the worst violent offenders to lock them up for significant time (not 18 months).

        Satz wants every case filed and to be resolved by Judge or jury so it doesn’t ever come back on him and that’s the problem because ASA’s are overwhelmed with cases that shouldn’t be filed or should be resolved quickly and reasonably.

      2. 2

        It doesn’t take guts to run against a pathetic and sad elderly person who will pull any string for pity and sympathy to ward off the inevitable. It takes courage to run no matter how sad the watery puppy dog eyes may be in order to finally close a sad and tragic chapter of Broward history that should have ended in the early 1990s.

    Alcalde ran for judge and withdrew bc she had some lucrative opportunity and didn’t Shulman open a joint venture firm with her spouse? So I don’t think either are likely.

      Maybe someone on the inside of the SAO who’s completely disgusted. That narrows it down to 95% of the lawyers.

      If so, then it was just her spouse – not Shulman. She is one who depends on others to survive (SAO, Judge), not one to start any business venture.
      Also, pretty dense on case law.

          She’s ambitious though, probably going Federal, so being a State court clod for the long term probably isn’t a desired goal.

          its common knowledge she is running for judge. She has the backing of the defense bar, judges, prosecutors and has civil/political connections through her family…..very deep pockets.

      The problem with him is he has represented corrupt public officials, murderers and the like. Most of us attorneys understand that. Put the public doesn’t. I could see a “PAC” putting together a terrible piece on this. But otherwise I think Padowitz would be great. I just don’t think he could win. Should be a former prosecutor. One that hasn’t been doing criminal for the most part. Preferably one of the many that left homicide in sad shape that it is today. Rossman, Weissman, Zaccor (he can add former Judge to his mailer), Schulman or Alcalde. One of them needs to step up. It’s not about a “friendship” with Satz, it’s about helping Broward county get out of the 70’s

        Re Ken: if he is the candidate I believe the knocks about representing bad guys and corrupt goons is an ace up his sleeve. If it’s thought about, who better to dethrone the current Casper Milktoast, best friend a corrupt goon or murderer could have than none other than Mr. Satz? A lawyer who has routinely exposed the incompetence of Mr. Satz in the courtroom is the most qualified to do the same in a campaign and to be able to offer a common sense plan on how to fix the problems having seen them first hand on the most serious cases. I will say he or anyone else needs to start now though. The thing is Mr. Satz started running the day after his nail biter reelection last November and is trying to lock up people like Rydell who have voting blocks at their disposal. Mr. Satz I agree knows how to play the sympathy game and some, I’m not saying Rydell, will promise their support.

        Kristin is very nice and I agree “looks” nice. But she hasn’t been trying cases in forever. Maybe if she does some time in homicide yes. She should totally try and get in there before 2020 it should be easy now that homicide is in shambles. But that would create a conflict of interest with her husband’s cases. I imagine he would have to get used to practicing in Miami and WPB because all his cases would have to be transferred. They could also use all the cases her husband has done against her. “Her husband represent corrupt officials! Her husband represents rapists and murderers. Is this what you want as a SA!? Someone with close ties to corrupt officials!” She also hasn’t tried a case in probably a decade. I’m not saying she wouldn’t be better than Satz. But I don’t think she would win. someone that has left homicide that can say I’ve tried cases from DUI to murder, and that hasn’t stayed doing criminal defense. That is pretty powerful. Or someone from the Feds could beat him.the only problem is most of those federal prosecutors are assholes who would probably be just as bad or worse than Satz.

    I agree. Mike’s smoke and mirrors tough guy image has been shattered. Everyone knows he’s soft on violent crime. Conviction rates (breakdowns) and prison admission stats (year and a day) are a sham. Also don’t forget the rest of Florida is sick of Broward exporting its criminal gangs to commit crimes statewide and nationwide. A good speaker will eviscerate him and garner support from all over. But who?

  8. 1

    If so he’d be ideal because he’s been on both sides. Plus lived in the real world (not the lonely ivory tower of a man with no soul, no family and no desire to relinquish the reins any time soon because he’s got no one to go home to and no place else to be) and knows where the resources should be focused and the bullshit cases that division attorneys should have the freedom to resolve. Frankly, I think just about anyone BUT Mike would be better.

      Aw, c’mon Bill (oh, ok, anonymous poster), don’t hold the fact he has no kids over Satz.

      No surprise Hawkins failed to expedite the trial or perpetuate the witness’ testimony, another of Satz’ political promotions. Like many in homicide right now, lacks the experience and training to do the job.

        If that’s true, I hope they are smart enough to call every single ASA who has quit in the last few years–they will learn a lot–The expose should be about Satz, not about the hard working HTU prosecutors, half of which were promoted with little training, little money, and are just desperately trying to do a good job with no real help because the funds are wasted on certain old timers and favorites who are making double what the rest of the attorneys are. Didn’t a CCU prosecutor turn down HTU because the raise wasn’t worth it? And didn’t another CCU prosecutor quit because Satz wouldn’t give a raise worth all the extra hours being worked on a big case. Maybe one of them will run against him?

          Then you can go down the list of attorneys who refuse to work for or with Tony Loe and how he’s seen to it that his girlfriend is now in his unit despite Satz’ initial objections.

      Court Contractors who “venue shop” to divert a civil case into the family division are welcome to commit fraud in their work place. No jury in the family division, just co-workers, and a judge who depends on the contractors future opinions.

      Why make private practice work when Satz pays Loe $150k a year (double what others in his unit doing a similar job are making) to flirt with young attorneys and try their cases with them because they cant do it themselves.

        1. 1

          1

          Yeah right, 150k is grand and you know it.

          You are likely the same asshole who rags on people who run for judge but who only make $50k as a govt. lawyer….saying things like they need to raise the judge’s salaries.

          MOST private lawyers (I said most, not the few) earn between 75k-120k, and great PDs get paid around 50k-80k so shut the fuck up.

            That is criminal lawyers. If you do civil cases you can get that with one case. Unless you are Haddad or Bogenshutz or Schwartzreich you are starving as a criminal defense attorney. $150 k is a joke. Sorry you make little money.

            Its true because there’s probably like 5 of 90 Broward Judges that didn’t get a big raise when they became Judges.

              9

              As a lawyer you become a Broward judge when you’ve failed at making a go of it. 99 percent of Broward judges did it because of the money. It’s a no chit way to suck at the pubic trough without having to do much.
              Anybody who says anything different is full of it.
              These suckers hold onto it like it’s their last tube of Preparation H.

                      Pathetic. So much for “public service.” Rich people only care about making more and more money these days.
                      Too much is never enough.
                      It didn’t used to be that way. Once upon a time wealthy lawyers gave back to the community in their senior years by dispensing their talent and wisdom in exchange for the low wages of a Judge and the feeling of helping others.
                      I think it all changed in the 80’s.

                  Good premise, but you have to remember all or most all of the female Judges have husbands who make money so being a Judge is extra side money and more important, free health benefits to them

                    This sounds sexist because many males in robes have more successful wives too. The truth is the bench is a great hobby job because the hours are slack and the health bennies and pension are a great complement to the primary breadwinners efforts.

    mike is mike, but the main problem is money or the lack of it, I hear their budget is cut this year again. these people cant work for the money available, not merely work but be overworled. mike has always prioritized violent or street crime to the detrement of political etc. u need money and anyone in his place would soon recognize that, same with the pds office, both loosing attorneys to insurance firms for the money. 6 years and no raises from mthe state, ridiculous mikes major problem is his fear of delegating any power, he micro manages thru fear, get rid of the residue cases etc , cut the dam volume and get on with it…..

    while 200,000 sounds like a lot divide it among the staff and it comes to around 1000 per, chump change, the state needs to better fund the office, in any event mike needs to call it a day and find some new ventures, perhaps marriage and a bit of fun…

      But when you compound it by paying “supervisors” who cant make it past a motion for JOA but have been around forever, you have a nice chunk of change. That 200K between two positions is an extreme example of a ridiculous amount of money wasted on non lawyers. The 85K + brigade of mommy jobs who come to work 5 hours a day to gossip in each other’s offices while others work themselves sick for pennies takes the problem up over a million at least.
