DIVERSION!

Former Florida Bar President Michelle Suskauer was, as predicted, cleared relatively unscathed via diversion on May 18th. As you may recall, the case was opened after concerns raised by federal judge Jimmy Cohn.

The entire Grievance Committee (GC) recommendation referenced above and below is found here.

The case seems to have taken all of twelve months for the Bar’s one time leader to be cleared. Brenda v. Blog, featuring the Bar’s least favorite lawyer, is now 600 days old since the initial complaint was received by the Bar without it having been presented to a GC.

Here’s how the GC defended Suskauer against the media coverage of her case, despite the Oath she swore to become Bar President, mandating familiarity with the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, also pictured below:

      She might win. Anything can happen.crazyas it sounds. People like stability. Most do t know the difference between Firman A or B. She’s an incumbent as far as the electorate knows. One guy has a million bucks I never seen anything but a sign. Neither competitor will beat her without more invested online.

        Just another bad faith attempt by a complete moron who everyone knows how she got the top job. Its sad to see how the clerks office has been taken over by this type of person and her lousy cronies including Robert Diaz’ wife.
        Hope this situation is finally put to rest in the upcoming election.
        Broward County needs better people than this running the clerks office. Its gone downhill since Brenda Forman greased her way in there. Its just gross.

          And she’s such a phony too. Because of the election Brenda now being nice to employees and not acting like the unhinged paranoid mean spirited spiteful person she is. So gross.

        Doubt it’s Brenda she can’t read. Her 6 many figure officials who nap in the break rooms did it in between siestas. But the Bar needs to wake up. Soon as she’s out of power the Bar will boot it. Boot the big booty out the door if it fits. How does this happen?

    I’m guessing Michele wouldn’t have even gotten the diversion except Gelin bringing out her oath of office. They cited blogging.

          Where would you guys get your courthouse inside news from but for this blog? I read it here & there. Gelin is a Stanford grad and stands for something. If a “Brenda” did that to me I’d be annoyed as hell. She’ll lose, then be homeless. Then the Bar will drop it. As she’ll be arrested within 4 months mark my words!!!

            What’s annoying is how the bar takes years to resolve this when the answer is simple. Gelin is allowed to take pictures of public officials out in public. It doesn’t matter if inept unqualified Brenda doesn’t realize this fact.

        You just know this is a disgruntled judge that wants to make something out of this. Gelin must have exposed them.

    ICC tested positive for CORONAVIRUS. I am sure all 32 employees are infected. Thank you Madame Clerk for not having a better way of organization. She doesn’t care $185 in her pocket who care who gets infected .

      She can’t have many work remotely thanks to the inept IT department that focuses on trying to make things harder for everyone else to do their job. Control freak running around thinks he’s smarter than everyone and Brenda believes it. So the clerk has archaic systems and they can’t work remotely. But we got security on Public information! How do you spell stupid? Broward IT department!

      Don’t you just love how Brenda walks around demanding respect? For what? Duping a man who just lost his wife and in a state of grief to get this low level position clerk who knows nothing elected clerk or court? Well ok good con job! Respect the way she conned the guy. But as clerk of court you can’t get more over your head than Brenda.

        Ask IT if they can help. Wait for the response will blow you away. They are so archaic and can’t do it. Brenda just follows what the little control freak says. It’s insane. The clerks office is a mess. The people with brains have left.

    Color blind Tommy Lynch acts like he’s all good with Black folk He went to all white privileged private schools his entire life and never ever socialized with an African American. Judge Lynch destroyed their lives for 30 years while he played racist judge and disproportionately sentenced Blacks to twice as much prison time than whites. No wonder he was a colored blind despicable judge. You should resign from your candidacy in shame.

      Nah. Lynch is finna win this, Ruby – pack it up (and make a payment on your student loan while you’re at it!)

      Anyone familiar w the issue understands it was the SAO who makes the plea offers!

      …careful Ruby.. You likely have become the only person nice guy Tom is finna fire when he wins despite the HUGE favor you did to the white folk by staying in a race based mostly on race.

        The buck stopped with You Judge Lynch. Accept responsibility for your actions. You control your courtroom and should have never accepted those racist pleas that you observed everyday for years under your nose. You shirked you’re responsibility as the Public Gatekeeper and Blacks have suffered due to your Enormous Failure. SHAMEFUL.

    I wonder what’s happened to all those dummies that lost the robe like the moulies clown. A nice steady paycheck in times of uncertainty is more appreciated now. Especially with the perk of doing nothing all damn day beside acting like a king dork for 45 minutes on ZOOM in underwear from inside a crappy prefab house out west a couple times a week. Live and learn I suppose.

    Does anyone know more about Ruby being sold for drugs? It sounds so bad I am heartbroken. She only mentioned it in passing in her questionnaire but I have many concerns now.

    No more Jim Crow Broward leaders. We need a Public Defender that stands up for the poor and minority community. Why is Lynch silent on police brutality, excessive force and BLM? Check yourself. It’s because he is grew up during the Jim Crow years, is funded and backed by police and has an abysmal record on sentencing blacks to prison.

    From Bias on the Bench. Sarosota Herald Tribune Investigation.
    Judge Thomas M. Lynch IV
    Lynch grew up in Hollywood, Florida, where his father operated a dog track.
    —-He remembers a time when blacks could not enjoy Fort Lauderdale Beach. They couldn’t even cross the Intracoastal without an employee ID card.

    But Lynch’s sentencing patterns don’t always fit his surfer persona.

    Since 2004, Lynch handed down an average sentence of 155 days to white defendants across third-degree felonies, an analysis of OBTS data collected by county clerks shows.

    He gave blacks more than double the time.

    The judge also sentenced whites to an average of 163 days for burglary, while giving blacks 247 days, despite the defendants scoring the same number of points at sentencing.

    Gordon Weekes is as appalling and does not stand up for blacks or minorities in the office. Gordon would stab his best friend in the back (fact: he did this to his longtime friend, the one female black chief) to get ahead.

    Brenda Formas is pathetic , court house needs to change for better . Brenda made all her friends Supervisors Nakia Smith, Shirley Grisset….just time name a few. Never been in a company where all the family is working in the same place!! Is just disgusting. Employees can’t wait for August to vote her out!!!

      She’s too incompetent to realize how the courthouse works. Brenda was a low level clerk herself before she duped Howard Forman and thinks it’s all easy. Like learning the cash register. And she has no idea how to treat professionals and those who worked for years with institutional knowledge. So many walked out

      All of the upper management is uneducated and ghetto. They all will lie when the truth will do. The ENTIRE clerks office will REJOICE once Brenda and her ass kissers have left the building.

    Lisa Arneaud and other ASAs send out congratulatory praise for sending a guy to prison for 15 year min man for trafficking in cocaine but Lisa’s face book demonizes black men sent to prison. Her husband wrote a huge Facebook post on it. Why do the people in the SAO celebrate sending people to prison?

    The SAO sends these emails out every time they send someone to prison no matter the charge . The media needs to pull a public record on every email subject line GAC guilty as charged. The community would carry Satz out!! Why does he allow this?

    Satz only cares about his legacy in the Cruz case which no one running except Sarahnell will let him handle. A vote for Sarahnell is a vote to keep Satz in the office for another 10 years. Think about that.

    Just today two persons working in the courthouse tested positive.

    In an effort to have safe work areas for anyone working in our courthouses, staff, clerks, judges, judicial assistants, attorneys, I feel it is incumbent to reemphasize the following:

    · If you are not required to be working in a courtroom, please do not enter the courtroom.

    · If you are in the common areas of any courthouse you must wear a mask

    · If you are working in your private office you do not need to wear a mask

    · Because there is still uncertainty about the virus being left on surfaces, please do not use any breakroom while in the courthouse

    · Remember we still have not permitted any face-face contact in any courthouse unless specified in our administrative orders

    · To the extent possible, all judges and court employees should work from home until we meet criteria specified from the Florida Supreme Court for opening

    · If you do have to go into a courthouse to process mail etc… please try to take the shortest amount of time possible to accomplish your task

    · Judges should not excuse any other person from complying with these guidelines.

    · Judges should not impose restrictions in their area or floor of the courthouse greater than these.

    · Remember these guidelines are to protect not only those in the courthouse but those we may come in contact with when we leave. These instructions will be updated as we received further direction from the Supreme Court.

    Folks this is not getting any less stressful, please stay safe and follow the Supreme Court recommendations.

    Thanks JT

    Lynch was Moron Ross’ enforcer. This scumbag has been sucking the public trough for years. Time to send him the message he deserves. NO to Lynch and his mole activities for past scum and NO to him being the next Public Defender.
    Make your voice heard at the ballot box. Toss the scum to the wolves like he has so many Black Lives in the past.
    This guy is one of the biggest oilers you could imagine !

      If you don’t want to be there then leave, no one has you tied to your desk. From reading your post you don’t sound that valuable of an employee anyway. I’m really confident that your chair could be filled in a real hurry with so many people out of work.

      You sound like a real Debbie Downer. How sad in these uncertain times that your coworkers are forced to be around your toxic attitude. I don’t think you will be in real demand for any other job since your attitude sucks, your grammer is horrible and you can’t spell. Do the world a favor and don’t go into motivaltional speaking.

        Lewis has run for every office but slug catcher. Maybe we should give him a job like taking the attendance of Broward Judges since they seem to have the most slack schedules of all.
        Don’t be surprised: Broward County has been like Selma Alabama in the early 60’s forever with no change in sight. Even Black Broward Judges sentence Black Defendants to longer stays in the Big House.
        They’d reinstate chain gangs if they could.
