George Odom makes it official.

After months of chatter, he’s filed to run for the circuit seat currently occupied by Dennis Bailey.

Other rumors have Gregg Rossman filing at some point as a Republican for SAO.

      Rossman has been out long enough in the real world to know how twisted and sadistic that fucking place is.

      Give him a chance.

      You just knew Bailey was going to get opposition! These Broward Judge Clowns do it to themselves and then have the temerity to hold out their hands for contributions to save their jobs. This dude should never have been sitting on the bench to begin with if you ask me. But he’s just the tip of the iceberg. All Broward Judges should get opposition!

    All these Judges in 2020 need opponents. The power of incumbency will be swamped with the anti Trump fervor in the primary ,, or better yet if they can be forced to November in three way races. (coordinated filings).

      Mr. Odom is a wonderful gentleman who is very active in the legal community and T.J. Reddick Bar Association. He is intelligent, articulate and sensitive to the needs of the community. Mr. Odom was instrumental in saving the Law Library when the space was at risk. As for Rossman, he too is an intelligent, articulate gentleman who served as a State Attorney for many years with passion and commitment. I have had the privilege of knowing both of these fine attorneys.

    Dennis Bailey, along with Barbara McCarthy, is one of the cruelest despots to ever take the bench. In 2020 we will take the garbage out in Broward.

      Judge Tuter is the one making the division assignments.

      He is up un 2020.

      He needs to be beaten at the polls more than anyone.

    Gordon Weekes is best friends with George Odom

    The Bailey and Weekes campaign are run by Judy Stern

    Question? Is there enough Judy love for Gordon and Dennis?

      Odom saw how poor a campaign Stern is running for Weekes and figures she will do the same for Bailey. Odom for the win.

    The Defense Bar in Beoward needs to rally behind Mr. Odom. If everyone who ever complained about the treatment they have received by Judge Bailey ponies up a hundred then Odom wins. Let’s change things people. Support Odom for a better Broward.

      Lol ! That’s a good one. The defense bar would have to have its head surgically removed from its arse to prompt any effective movement aside from its members schmoozing crooked Broward judges and their minions. Nobody could possibly mistake their motives. Its never resembled anything but a political proctologist’s spoon.

    Possible Bailey Bailout ? I doubt it. He and Loe already tried that and flopped and came limping back to get their place back at the trough.

      No way he’s bowing out. The fact most of them are not now showing papers in Tallahassee is because they mostly all wait to send in their paperwork so as not to alert observers that they are up. Ask most any Judge and they will tell you: they are petrified to have to campaign, win or lose. They all want to sail in unopposed and unhassled without having to interact with the public they are supposed to be serving so why send papers up early and give those with courage and ambition ideas. The JNC game is a turkey that stinks to high heaven and all of them deserve opposition so the people decide and not some lousy Governor but it hardly happens. The worst ones who go in unopposed brag about being elected later but the truth is most people are scared to run so there it goes.

        Broward Judges in particular know its a crapshoot with less than a fifty/fifty chance if they’re lucky to keep their seats. Its easy pickens for a challenger if the judge running to keep his or her chicken has had a public reprimand or have been splattered all over the media for egregious behavior.
        Broward has had plenty of these judges and plenty of judges who never thru the appointment process should have been sitting as judges period.
        The judicial crapshoots are increasing in number and well they should. These are not positions for life, nor should they be, but in Broward the sense of judicial entitlement runs high with idiots seeking to ride out these cushy jobs with no oversight and even less leadership coming from a ChiefJudge who’s more interested in keeping his own chicken than he is improving the situation with the large number of judicial bumpkins in office by instituting Judicial Rotation like they do in every other judicial circuit in Florida.
        The days of easy judicial intimidation in Broward of those seeking to bounce these turkeys off of the gravey train are over and the days of judges having to run every time their terms are up are increasingly likely and desperately needed to stem the tide of Broward Judicial Buffoons sitting in judgement of others at the same time they’re pulling behind them all this baggage.

    Bailey’s bloated sense of self-importance coupled with his agonizing pontificating is just too much to swallow. I try to stay out of there whenever possible.

    Seriously? One JA per Judge? With electronic scheduling? One JA could handle 3-4 Judges and still have plenty of free time.

      The JAs are worthless anyway. With all the time Broward judges seem to have, they could be doing their own schedules easily.
      Then just maybe they’ll start showing up to Court on time.

      Nobody misses they get to work at 11, go for a 2 hour lunch, and then skip out early.

      This is Broward and you learn to expect nothing more from our judges.

        The JAs never answer the phone especially the one that works for Judge Kaplan, she never answers the phone and when she does she is extremely rude and acts as if though you are interrupting whatever she is doing. She is very rude and unprofessional in every sense of the word.

        Yea, I love the Marines. Always have.
        Sadly, some have been picked, and recruited by nefarious entities to infiltrate our country with positions of power.
        Manchurian candidates always get the appointments.

        Case on point, Judge Howard Coates.
        Helps his pay for play lawyers contractors rob from the helpless elderly , and whistle-blowers of child trafficking.

        He got free education from Skull N Bones Yale, (Red Flag), due to his blind obedience to his unlawful handlers and rulers. (Think NAZI’s). Pumping children. (Think Epstein)

      Not a bad move seeing Sean had 0 chance in out-democratting these 2

      so now it’s “let the democrat candidates fight it out to see who takes on Conway in the General Election in November”
      He’ll get all the Repub and Indep votes, plus being top ballot

    Sarahnell now is claiming she’s implemented progressive diversion programs. How many times has a defendant been denied diversion because they don’t like the defense attorney? How easy has it been for a defendant to get passed all the hoops to qualify for diversion? Such a bunch of lies!! Sarahnell has no clue about criminal justice reform. She’s been up Satz ass too long to think for herself

    Comment from the Miami Blog. BUt likewise here. Where is the outrage:
    I read the Blog ALL the time, love it, but very very seldom comment. I am posting now because I am appalled at the lack of condemnation and outrage expressed by our readers of Judge Kastrenakes; recent reprehensible conduct in jailing a 21 year old for missing jury duty. Even the few comments which were made omitted the important facts – the kid overslept, he had NEVER been in trouble with the law, he lives with, and helps care for his disabled grandfather, the trial was delayed for a total of 45 minutes, and oh, did I mention what I, and everyone else who is honest knew before I checked it out, the kid is African American? This judicial act is an intolerable example of the most insidious form of racism, and without question merited far more than a few random comments on a post related to Judge Slom retiring. Shame on Rumps for not making a separate post, shame on all of us for not calling it for what it unquestionably was, and shame on the JQC if they do not remove Kastranakes.

    anyone before him has realized he saw this coming as his attitude has completely changed in the past 12 months. I still think Judges think this practice of all of a sudden becoming everyones BFF the 12 months before election works.

    Like everyone just realized that Kastrenakes in Palm Beach acts like a dictator on the bench with anyone who doesn’t agree with him. He hasn’t had judicial temperament since the first day he put the Robe on…not too mention his run in with FHP years back when he called an FHP officer that accused him of speeding that she was a liar and to call her supervisor.

    Then he holds that poor 21 year old hard working kid no priors great family in contempt for over sleeping and slaps cuffs on him after he apologizes. No matter what you think about the fact it was dumb to over sleep….10 days jail for a kid never in trouble and no record? Insane…

      when they discipline and report dirty lying prosecutors as they are required to do under the Canons and issue capias for the dirty lying cops, then they Might deserve the title “your Honor.” Until them, I suggest they never again be addressed so and simply addressed as “judge.” Call it a “honor out” like blue flu.

      1. Debate Subject For PD Candidates-A judge is not the court. People v. Zajic, 88 Ill.App.3d 477, 410 N.E.2d 626 (1980). says:

        6

        0

        Honor reference was made for obedient slaves.
        We are a nation of laws, not people….

        Judges, are not the court….

        Let the PD candidates take questions on the following.

        A judge is not the court. People v. Zajic, 88 Ill.App.3d 477, 410 N.E.2d 626 (1980).

        The U.S. Supreme Court has stated that “No state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his undertaking to support it.”. Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U.S. 1, 78 S.Ct. 1401 (1958).

        Any judge who does not comply with his oath to the Constitution of the United States wars against that Constitution and engages in acts in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land. The judge is engaged in acts of treason. Having taken at least two, if not three, oaths of office to support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Illinois, any judge who has acted in violation of the Constitution is engaged in an act or acts of treason (see below). If a judge does not fully comply with the Constitution, then his orders are void, In re Sawyer, 124 U.S. 200 (1888), he/she is without jurisdiction, and he/she has engaged in an act or acts of treason. TREASON Whenever a judge acts where he/she does not have jurisdiction to act, the judge is engaged in an act or acts of treason. U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 S.Ct. 471, 66 L.Ed.2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 5 L.Ed 257 (1821) What is the penalty for treason? Any judge or attorney who does not report the above judges for treason as required by law may themselves be guilty of misprision of treason, 18 U.S.C. Section 2382.

        Whenever any officer of the court commits fraud during a proceeding in the court, he/she is engaged in “fraud upon the court”. In Bulloch v. United States, 763 F.2d 1115, 1121 (10th Cir. 1985), the court stated “Fraud upon the court is fraud which is directed to the judicial machinery itself It is where the court or a member is corrupted or influenced or influence is attempted or where the judge has not performed his judicial function — thus where the impartial functions of the court have been directly corrupted.”

        Fraud upon the court” makes void the orders and judgments of that court. It is also clear and well-settled Illinois law that any attempt to commit “fraud upon the court” vitiates the entire proceeding. The People of the State of Illinois v. Fred E. Sterling, 357 Ill. 354; 192 N.E. 229 (1934)

        (“The maxim that fraud vitiates every transaction into which it enters applies to judgments as well as to contracts and other transactions.”); Allen F. Moore v. Stanley F. Sievers, 336 Ill. 316; 168 N.E. 259 (1929)

        (“The maxim that fraud vitiates every transaction into which it enters …”); In re Village of Willowbrook, 37 Ill.App.2d 393 (1962)

        (“It is axiomatic that fraud vitiates everything.”); Dunham v. Dunham, 57 Ill.App. 475 (1894), affirmed 162 Ill. 589 (1896); Skelly Oil Co. v. Universal Oil Products Co., 338 Ill.App. 79, 86 N.E.2d 875, 883-4 (1949);

        Thomas Stasel v. The Federal law, when any officer of the court has committed “fraud upon the court”, the orders and judgment of that court are void, of no legal force or effect. AMY In 1994, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “Disqualification is required if an objective observer would entertain reasonable questions about the judge’s impartiality. If a judge’s attitude or state of mind leads a detached observer to conclude that a fair and impartial hearing is unlikely, the judge must be disqualified.”. Liteky v. U.S., 114 S.Ct. 1147, 1162 (1994). That Court also stated that Section 455(a) “requires a judge to recuse himself in any proceeding in which her impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” Taylor v. O’Grady, 888 F.2d 1189 (7th Cir. 1989). In Pfizer Inc. v. Lord, 456 F.2d 532 (8th Cir. 1972), the Court stated that “It is important that the litigant not only actually receive justice, but that he believes that he has received justice.” “Recusal under Section 455 is self-executing; a party need not file affidavits in support of recusal and the judge is obligated to recuse herself sua sponte under the stated circumstances.” Taylor v. O’Grady, 888 F.2d 1189 (7th Cir. 1989).

        None of the orders issued by any judge who has been disqualified by law would appear to be valid. It would appear that they are void as a matter of law, and are of no legal force or effect. Should a judge not disqualify himself, then the judge is violation of the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. United States v. Sciuto, 521 F.2d 842, 845 (7th Cir. 1996) (“The right to a tribunal free from bias or prejudice is based, not on section 144, but on the Due Process Clause.”).

        Should a judge issue any order after he has been disqualified by law, and if the party has been denied of any of his / her property, then the judge may have been engaged in the Federal Crime of “interference with interstate commerce”. The judge has acted in the judge’s personal capacity and not in the judge’s judicial capacity. It has been said that this judge, acting in this manner, has no more lawful authority than someone’s next-door neighbor (provided that he is not a judge). However some judges may not follow the law. If you were a non-represented litigant, and should the court not follow the law as to non-represented litigants, then the judge has expressed an “appearance of partiality” and, under the law, it would seem that he/she has disqualified him/herself. However, since not all judges keep up to date in the law, and since not all judges follow the law, it is possible that a judge may not know the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court and the other courts on this subject. Notice that it states “disqualification is required” and that a judge “must be disqualified” under certain circumstances. JUDGE YOU HAVE BEEN AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED BY LAW. The Supreme Court has also held that if a judge wars against the Constitution, or if he acts without jurisdiction, he has engaged in treason to the Constitution. If a judge acts after he has been automatically disqualified by law, then he is acting without jurisdiction, and that suggest that he is then engaging in criminal acts of treason, and may be engaged in extortion and the interference with interstate commerce. Courts have repeatedly ruled that judges have no immunity for their criminal acts. Since both treason and the interference with interstate commerce are criminal acts, no judge has immunity to engage in such acts.

        Lets all discuss.

          and “all persons concerned in executing such void judgments or sentences, are considered, in law, as trespassers.” Elliot v. Piersol, 1 Pet. 328, 340, 26 U.S. 328, 340 (1828). This issue of Fraud Upon the Court and resultant void proceedings voiding judgements is, in fact, currently rearing its ugly head before the 11th Cir.
