KEEP ‘EM COMING!

*UPDATE*The DBR picks up the Anidjar & Levine story from JAABLOG

The allegations are unequivocally false, brought by two former employees who are trying to create a name for themselves by baselessly attacking others, who have achieved great success in the areas they practice,” (defense attorney) Slusher said via email. “This lawsuit is a trivial attempt of these former employees to use the court system to leverage the success and stellar reputation that their former employer has spent over 15 years building. We are confident our clients will be vindicated in this matter.

NYT – When Court Moves Online, Do Dress Codes Still Matter?

JAABLOG’s Dennis Bailey story made The New York Times today, something we can’t remember happening since JAABLOG got the front page back in 2014.

There’s no credit of course, although it would have been nice of Dennis or Jack Tuter to thank us for garnering so much badly needed good publicity for the 17th Circuit. But that’s probably expecting too much as well.

The real irony here has to do with the Florida Bar. The link in the NYT article to the “social media” that supposedly helped spread the story goes to the Bar’s Facebook post from yesterday! While the Bar is still “investigatingJAABLOG in part for supposedly serving no legitimate purpose!

Oh well. It’s all in a day’s work.

The real story in all of this, of course, is once again you.

As we’ve said so many times over the years, even if there were only a handful of people reading the blog, there will always be reporters, editors, high court judges, the JQC, and others who can make a difference among them. Your news here can (and will) go to the outside world as the Bailey story has, just like so many, many other JAABLOG stories over the years.

Thanks again for reading, and most importantly, for the tips, stories, and the constructive comments that keep the light shining …

    Hmmmm. I’d like to know who the shirtless lawyer is/and the one under the covers?? This is important to know.

    Ive seen PDs in court that don’t dress much better. What’s the big whoop ? Other than Burnout Bailey trying to catch a few headlines as he’s got competition for his seat. He sums up pretty much the unprofessional behavior that has made the Broward Judiciary the laughingstock of the state.

    I wouldn’t be the least surprised if the whole thing isn’t the figment of an overactive imagination or otherwise downright fictional. Remember, this is coming from the same judge touting fried chicken and sweet potato pie recently disciplined before the Supreme Court.
    What attorney would allow themselves to be zoomed on cam from bed or without a shirt on ?
    I mean, this sounds more like a publicity stunt which wouldn’t be unheard of within the ranks of some Broward judges facing opposition than an account of an actual incident.
    I’m not aware of Bailey disclosing any names connected with this revelation, or for that matter. to whom he may have made any actual admonition concerning this breach of etiquette, or further, anything whatsoever from who may have been the individuals involved.
    Sounds like more just trash talk from another Broward judge still smarting from having had his own wrists slapped from the Supreme Court than any perceived dress code violation.

      Chief Judge Tuter is unaware of a letter from the Broward judiciary until after it goes out?

      Who is in charge here?

    Why all the outrage? Its not the first time a Broward Judge has been caught making racially insensitive statements from the Bench.

    From Broward Judges Feiner, Greene , Ehrlich, to Judge Bailey and many others, Broward is chock full of ignorant, bigoted blowhards who themselves have accomplished little to nothing in their careers for their fellow human beings but the ability to suck from the public trough to retirement for lack of having the imagination or talent to do anything else day in and day out.
    The repetitive nature of the job itself spells trouble with a capital T.

    And what’s the ultimate outcome the longer they stay on the bench in a Division without any Judicial Rotation ever being implemented by a Chief Judge himself whose only ambition is to remain the Chief Judge of a Circuit in Perpetual Crisis?

    The Public whom they are sworn to serve, particularly from the lower economic social strata, minorities in particular, become the brunt of their own personal dissatisfaction, thus becoming targets for outrageous judicial behavior.

    It’s Psychology 101.

    Without a Chief Judge with the strength and desire to reign in these racially insensitive monsters, you get Judges like Bailey, Merrilee Ehrlich, Lenny Feiner, Greene and others whose only way to make themselves feel better about their own failings is to belittle, berate and otherwise show they are neither intelligent enough or mature enough to sit on the bench and be supported by taxpayers to administer the law and to conduct themselves accordingly.

    The answer? Vote these self-important blowhards off the bench at every opportunity and keep a close eye on Supreme Court Reprimands for Judges that need to learn a lesson they somehow missed on their way to the Bench.

    Remain vigilant.

    We pay them and we can remove them when called for.

    They will come to the conclusion eventually that they are not so important after all that they can’t be easily replaced by those that will take the job seriously and set the proper example for what a Judge should stand for: Equal Justice Under the Law.

      I expect their defense will be the equal protection provisions of the state and US constitutions— if other judges can get away with it and NOT prosecuted by JQC upon verified complaint, then they should equally not be punished, that is their idea of equal justice under the law–

      Four years ago we were laughed at here for saying cameras were going to change a lot around Broward. Courts, LEO’s , politicians.
      Still laughing?

      Of course it wasn’t the first time, nor will it be the last, when we see it, we will show it and preserve it for the world to see, FREE.

      The cost of video equipment has gone down so much. Why not cameras in all courtrooms.

    I have to agree with Dennis. I am not saying it has to be a black tie affair, but you must show some decorum to the proceeding no matter how untraditional it may be.

    Hormonal Eruption?
    Broward Judges need constant supervision…
    Monthly Blood tests and drug screening could also be helpful to determine potential problems before they occur.

      Yeah–just think what would have happened if the earliest JQC complaints against Gardiner were investigated and prosecuted. You know, back in 1998, before she got her “post partum depression” and was sleezing every one she could to get to the 4th DCA, like Butterworth promised. How much grief could have been prevented for her 10 yr reign the JQC protected and neither they nor those responsible in the 17th and 4th objected or ever looked back on those cases to review because those judges and courts and ASAs and AAGs ignored and even fought the “truth” and the “truth seeking Function” of the state and the courts they were just as guilty of abusing. Motive to continue???

        AND, Ah Yes, Conway would prefer we all forget about certain Unheroic parts of his problem and his cop out deal with the Bar that he’s STFU, they would let him off when the Truth was a solid defense. He’s no hero-especially the one he wants all to believe it is.

            Conway’s got my vote over this diffis. It’s either Conway or Lynch for a return to competent representation of our clients. The alternative is too bad to contemplate. Gordo had better be using this time to look for a new job where he actually has to earn his keep. His party days are dwindling down to a precious few.

          Ah yes the envious Sean Conway hater – anyone else who is familiar with the story knows what happened.

          Briefs WERE written for the Supreme Court and the Court sided with the Bar. (See Conway v. TFB)

          Conway had the courage to sign his name (something you lack and wish you had), exposing Aleman’s b.s.

          Tough for you to accept — but the S. Ct. asked for briefs and Conway made the front page of the Sunday edition.

            No doubt in my mind Sean Conway would do an exceptionally good job as PD. He’s an experienced trial lawyer with an extensive background in both public service and private practice.
            Almost anyone would do a better job than Finkelstein and his worthless ass kissing sycophant.
            Gordon Weekes is about as effective in court as he is as an administrative cock-up.
            He’s been sliding for years on a plan of doing as little as possible and getting away with it. About the only thing he’s got going for him is he’s a minority, a minority whose afraid to show the black community he married to an Asian American, and he runs from a candidate debate like he’s running for his life.
            You can take it to the bank: Weekes is nothing but a pretender and he’s not even good at that.

    After reading the Complaint against A&L, I decided that my vote for Clerk of the Court will be for the candidate who promises to get rid of the ridiculous watermark on documents obtained from the Clerk’s website. It makes it almost impossible to focus on what you are reading.

    Federal courts and other state circuits don’t do it, but the Broward clerks insist on making its public documents unreadable.

    I was Queen for a day and then I fell into the same arrogant pattern of so many other Broward judges thinking I would be untouchable.
    Then the security camera showed what actually happened and now you can add my permanently stained robe to the stale collection of all the others.
