JUNETEENTH UPDATE

From the PDO at 11:48 AM:

We closed early today in honor of Juneteenth. Long time coming for the recognition.

From the Clerk of Courts at 1:14 PM:

We have been advised by Court Administration that the 17th Circuit is open for business on Monday.

From the SAO at 12:10 PM:

State Attorney Harold Pryor says: “I am in support of the circuit recognizing this monumental national holiday. However, if the courts are open we will be here.”

JAABLOG response at 12:19 PM:

The PDO is closing early today in honor of Juneteenth. Is the SAO?Will Mr. Pryor decide to independently close the SAO for a day next week, whether or not the Chief Judge orders a closure?

SAO response at 1:53 PM:

From: ADM1 – Harold Pryor HPryor@sao17.state.fl.us
Sent: Friday, June 18, 2021 1:45 PM

Subject: Happy Juneteenth!

Hello Team:

As you may know, the federal government announced yesterday that Juneteenth – which commemorates June 19, 1865 when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas – is now a federal holiday. (It is not a state holiday at this point.)

Given the short notice and the fact that Broward courts will remain open on Monday with many hearings already scheduled, we are going to mark the event this year by closing the State Attorney’s Office at 3 p.m. today, Friday.

    Broward is so embarrassing. I would not be proud to be a judge or other elected official here. It’s really no big accomplishment.

      Broward is a bunch of racists hiding behind high thread count bedsheets and gated walls pretending to be progressive.

      Hahahahahaha, Like a raise would make the APDs do any better when it’s a fundamental loser and progrommed that way, even with less cases &/or greater staff. They are as much a tool of Satz as the “New” old SAO because Satz controls both sides of the fence. Hiel Mike!

    Satz trying to fit into the new tribe by not wearing socks now ? Just how transparently idiotic can this old man become in his bid to hang onto power? Apparently there are few limits.
    What’s next, an Afro wig ?

        Judge Shutter used to wear sneakers; good judge, but he had said that introductory small claims spiel so many times he was mush-mouthed in the end days.

      Brittle yellow old man toenails too easily snag and rip off in socks being removed too quickly.

    There’s already problems within the ranks of Pryor and Co.
    Already the corn dogs are fighting for recognition and or support. I think Pryor is going to be a one term SA. He’s making enemies faster than you can fry a fish stick.

    The black bailiffs have advised the supervisors that they will not work on Juneteenth. Juneteenth is a black holiday and they will not work.

      Really, what is the point of going to the satellites? Glad handing? I s this what you think your job is? How much time is eaten up by pop ins to say hi and let people know you “appreciate them”. Know what makes people feel appreciated? a fully staffed office where lawyers are not covering undermanned divisions. An office that doesnt focus on photo opportunities but rather on making sure the job people were hired to do id DOABLE without risking malpractice because there is not enough time in the day to do all the work by yourself. How many trials did Harold Pryor do when he was in the office? Are you going to accept those numbers from the lawyers who work for you?

    The public defenders office can careless about the public they are NOT defending. They are the absolute haughty, belittling and condescending To name a few Harriett Gustafson And Supervisor James that is clueless about supervising and knowing what’s going on with cases. They really need another Harold Pryor to protect the public because the pds office is going downhill
