“IT’S A MISTAKE”

The following email went out this morning at 9:02 AM, signed by Alexandra Rieman, court administration’s lawyer.

Attached is an electronic copy of AO 2014-33-Gen assigning Judge Evans to Division MW as of September 2, 2014, Judge Kanner to Division 55 on September 24, 2014, and Judge Zeller to Division ZD on September 24, 2014.

Hardly news, since everyone knew Zeller was taking over misdemeanor drug court, and the other two changes.  What is interesting is the assignment of Lynn Rosenthal to Criminal Division FE, seen in the body of the AO. 

But hold on.

It’s a mistake, as Peter Weinstein’s JA just told us.  Rosenthal has NOT been reassigned to Criminal as of yet, and the AO is being fixed. 

We’ll let you know when it’s updated …

    Let’s talk about Gordon Weeks cutting off his dreadlocks…

    Looks like someone is grooming themselves to be groomed successor to Howard next election cycle.

    Mr. Weekes better hope that Howie Fakersteinbitch quits mid-term and that he gets appointed.

    If there is an election for PD, I know of at least two people who think their names will resound better at the polls than his.

    Bill and Lynn have been experiencing a lot of marital problems recently. Give them a break and cool it with the Blog criticisms.

      To anonymous a/k/a “Tellin D. Truth” :
      If I author an opinion or comment, particularly one which is, or which may be seen as, critical of an opinion or comment authored by another party, I sign my name directly below that comment or opinion.
      You, conversely and unsurprisingly, hide behind a ridiculous moniker while you sarcastically criticize Bill Gelin, a real gentleman, who has a sack – and has proven that he does – time and again. A big one at that.

      Bill is trying a case for the first time in 5 years (wait… More?). He’s mentioned willingness to take polygraphs, closed unfounded IA cases, ferguson, mo, and other completely improper topics. Needless to say, if the state achieves a conviction–even on the most tenuous evidence–any error on their part will be overlooked considering the conduct on the defense end of the trial. Yawn.

        Sorry to burst your bubble Privately funded but Gelin won a Robbery Firearm a few months ago and today he got ng on two counts of Agg Ass Leo with anything but as you claim tenuous evidence. There go those mandatory minimums.
        Why the lie about Gelin not trying cases?
        The other complaints are unfounded. Obviously the rules of evidence are not your thing. Are you a lawyer? Are you a disbarred lawyer? Whatever you are you are a liar.
        Now go back to sleep.

    So I’m Facebook surfing and I see that Rhodo Sokoloff is a member of the Weston Democratic Club in violation of Canon 7.
    I wonder what the JQC will think about a judge-candidate involved in partisan politics? Hummmm

      I am thrilled that people are watching the Weston Democratic Club page. Thank you so much for your interest. Actually Rhoda Sokoloff could not be listed as a member of our club, because our membership list is not posted on Facebook. We are respectful of our members’ privacy. It is good, however, to know that people are following the club on Facebook. We ARE an important club. Thank you again for your interest.

      Former President

    Dear Ms Zucker,
    Ms Sokoloff, as a current judicial candidate, can not be a member of any partisan or political group. Her Facebook page shows her as belonging to 2 blatantly political and partisan groups. One group is “Hillary in 2016” and the other group is “Fans of the Weston Democratic Club.” She is violating Canon 7. As a friend of hers, I strongly urge you to bring it to her attention so she can correct it. It’s sad when judges and judicial candidates don’t play by the rules. Judges have a unique role in our great democracy of having to be fair, neutral and impartial.
    If Ms Sokoloff doesn’t mind violating Canon 7 that tells me she will not be a good judge.

    Well, well, well. The Florida Bar is now in the crosshairs of the Bill of Rights. Awhile back, a Florida lawyer running for a judgeship was reprimanded by the Florida Supremes for raising money directly for her judicial campaign. She understood correctly that such an activity is protected by the First Amendment–that the use of a “committee” to raise the money, as mandated by The Bar, is an unconstitutional impediment to the unfettered funding of political speech.

    Read all about it at http://miami.cbslocal.com/2014/10/02/supreme-court-to-weigh-florida-case-on-judicial-fundraising/ . This story, in various iterations, is all over the web.

    This case may prove the beginning of the end for The Bar’s and the Florida Supreme Court’s multi-faceted assault on the First Amendment. Last year, for example, the Florida Supremes, by judicial fiat, created the “Creed of Professionalism” which makes it unethical to be “discourteous.” I was disbarred for being “discourteous” five years earlier, so I appreciate, personally, various Bar officials’ now admitting that it had no legal authority to disbar me for that, as there were no rules proscribing a “lack of civility.”

    What we have here, in The Florida Bar and the priggish Florida Supremes, is a bunch of elitists who seek to use Bar discipline to silence critics of them and their Leviathan speech and thought police. Having SCOTUS rule that to limit the funding of a judicial campaign by The Bar’s means is the start of the speech code’s unraveling.

    You’re welcome. Jack Thompson, the once and future lawyer

    This blog was once very informative and fun to read, now if you check it once a month you haven’t miss a thing. I don’t know who’s idea this change was but it was not a good one.
