COME ON, JACK!

2:00 P.M. – Currently a roomful of national and international media, together with a full contingency of top lawyers, are waiting for a court reporter to show up for Nikolas Cruz’s 1:30 P.M. hearing.

Liz Scherer came out at 1:35 P.M. and apologized to everyone in attendance, explaining a court reporter couldn’t be located.  Cruz was then taken down, after the judge left.  At 1:45 P.M., with Cruz in the holding cell, Scherer announced it would be a minimum of thirty minutes until a court reporter could appear, and proceedings were recessed until 2:15 P.M.

After leaving the courtroom, we saw a court reporter on the seventh floor where Scherer’s courtroom is located, steno machine in hand, waiting for the elevator to take her to Bernie Bober’s courtroom on the 5th floor, also apparently in wait mode while a reporter could be located.

We’ll check back at 2:15 P.M. to see if the Cruz hearing will be held today.  In the meantime, it’s about time judicial administration kicks it up a notch.  As previously reported on JAABLOG, the court reporter staffing mess has been ongoing for far too long, and the 17th Circuit can hardly afford another embarrassment following so closely on the heels of Ehrlich’s star turn …

UPDATE 2:16 P.M. – the hearing has started, with speedy trial waived on the record …

    Things are bad when it’s easier to find a Broward Judge in court on a Friday afternoon than it is to find a stenographer.

    Tooty can’t even handle the court reporter issue ? The court reporters Ive spoken with don’t want to staff criminal courtrooms because they are out of control.
    Everything seems to be out of control around here with no end in sight and a judicial admin that doesn’t give a shit.
    It might help if the judges show for scheduled hearings for starters. Now we have to wait for reporters as well ?

      You mean the husband of marina garcia wood Rodriguez?
      As I recall the two of them were last scene hanging out with Trump down in Miami.
      Oh yeah, he would be great, he only takes about 10 weeks of vacation each year.

    Who will lead the pep rally for everyone in the real world having to deal with Tuter’s joke of a courthouse?
    It must be nice being a Broward Judge with an Ostrich in charge.
    It’s hard to see reality with the head in the sand.

    Toots is too busy letting criminals out of jail to pay attention to anything else.

    Mr. Satz should take the bull by the horns.

        $500,000 for Bond, first offense for trespassing? Seem a bit excessive?

        If Nick wasn’t MK Ultra’d then you got some big pussies that can bull pup innocent kids and then take all cell phones & backpacks and yell at them what you will do to them if they run out of line.

        Nice piece in the Observer, Israel. You had over a year to prep for your major OP FLL StarTrek FF. All those practice hours with Todd Tongin. A lone wolf, so you wrap it up.

        Susan must be real proud of you. I hear Brett is going to be brought up on charges and Emma G. as well. Hope they paid you enough and it is hidden. The last thing you probably want is Craig Stella and Dena Aiello taking all your pay dirt whiles you are in the interior.

        Stand Down, except for Coral Springs PD getting that SWAT vest and secondary weapon. Just handed over to a plain clothes, if that was the case the SWAT member knew him and would have breached.

    Tuter doesn’t give a chit about criminal. It goes way beyond assignments and court reporting. Just wait.

      Tuter’s failure to face the facts surrounding the behavior of errant Broward judges shows he’s unfit to serve as Chief Judge of this circuit.

    Thankfully he was apprehended by our Amazing Sheriff with his Amazing Leadership. So that Broward’s Amazing PD, can present the case to Our Amazing judges….

      It’s basic planning. Every other Circuit’s Administration saw the age of digital dawning years ago and made adjustments for the eventual destruction of the pool of available stenographers except Tuter and Weinstein.

        That’s why they keep voting for them. Mediocrity can’t accept anything but it’s own in charge. It’s an ego thing.

        Why press a button for an inexpensive perfect record when you can pay an old lady 3x as much to get it somewhat right?

        Could it be nobody wanted manipulation proof transcripts or recordings that reflect unprofessional outbursts and tone?

            Jack’s reforms don’t amount to squat. Initiate Judicial Rotation like we have in every other circuit in the state and proper judicial supervision for a circuit that is clearly out of control.
            Tuter has failed in his efforts to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes.
            He’s rapidly becoming known as incapable of reining in errant Broward judges as the judicial meltdown continues.

      I heard the switch in criminal circuit reporting to audio was never done because of Jaab. If the audio was inexpensive and easy to acquire many more of the hissy fits would make it out in all their glory and get on TV etc. Instead of doing the right thing because of Jaab (being professional) they did what they always do because of Jaab (dig in their heels and create more problems on down the road).

        The blog is the only place reporting the good like today w J Merrigan and the bad. Why doesn’t the judges just try to make changes instead of fighting it all the time?

    Interesting how they have a big meeting in the wake of the humiliation and death of Twiggs a poor minority female in a wheelchair and instead of showing up to show solidarity and compassion for this loss Labarga cancels at the last minute and they have a kumbaya self congratulation fest instead and don’t bother to mention the name of the deceased or express a shred of remorse for her but if a single one of them is challenged they circle the wagons and take it as an affront to the unified whole but when Fuckhead Ehrlich made this poor person’s last few days on Earth an uncomfortable living hell they go into self congratulations and can’t accept a shred of responsibility as a group supposedly serving the community and if one of their own dogs died they’d lower the flags to half mast.

        Silber couldn’t save Rosenthal. What makes you think he could put together a unionized court personnel?

      If you were visited by the ghost of Jimmy Hoffa he was there to slit your throat, Hoffa hated attorneys.

    Hey, Jack: don’t sweat the small stuff. If you can’t keep the judges under control, this court reporting thing should be a cinch.

    “Circus” “Embarassaing” – y’all make a case for but for everyone calling Broward Courts “CORRUPT” – where’s your FACTS? Or even allegations, tips leads that lead to stories of “CORRUPTION” “a roomful of national and international media” sitting there waiting on a court reporter. All of them walking out with the same boring ass story why don’t one of you calling Broward Courts CORRUPT give them a lead?? Got name of a judge? Someone inside? case number? Defendants? Campaign $, favors, something ANYTHING that shows “CORRUPTION” ? If not stick to Circus.
