MEETING NOTES

Anyone looking to Jack Tuter as a beacon of change for the ailing Broward judiciary had better look elsewhere.  Putting it another way, it’s best not to forget he cut his chief judge chops as an administrator under Vic Tobin and Peter Weinstein.  The never-ending, in a class by themselves embarrassments that have been a fixture of the 17th Circuit for as long as anyone cares to remember will inevitably continue to recur, if what’s known of today’s roughly twenty-minute judicial summit is any indication.

First, what wasn’t discussed, according to multiple sources:

  • Ms. Sandra Twiggs.  There wasn’t even a moment of silence.
  • A judicial rotation plan to conform with the Rules of Judicial Administration,* and to stem burn-out.
  • Professionalism panels for judges to cut down on JQC complaints, contested elections, and the far too common meltdowns and ethical lapses that distinguish the Broward judiciary in terms of scope and volume from judicial circuits across Florida and the nation.
  • Recent incidents involving Bobby Diaz and Barbara McCarthy.
  • Tuter’s perceived preference of using transfer to the Criminal Division as “punishment detail“.
  • Tuter’s perceived role in sparking Ehrlich’s resignation and corresponding inexcusable and cruel meltdown at First Appearances by notifying her of his intention to transfer her to the Criminal Division.

Next, what was discussed, according to multiple sources:

  • High fives all around for the great job the majority of hard-working judges are doing, and a message of approval from the Chief Justice to same.
  • An implied warning for judicial “leakers” to a blog that only wants to make them look bad, and a confirmation that the Chief Justice cancelled his trip to avoid a circus after the announcement appeared on the blog.
  • The overall strong condition of the circuit, despite a handful of blog malcontents.
  • Unspecified plans to improve things in the future and avoid pitfalls provided by a few bad apples.
  • A focus on the large number of new young, talented judges who will be taking the circuit forward.
  • The great strides in reducing the jail population, and in electronic scheduling for both civil and criminal.
  • Tuter’s close working relationship with Howard Finkelstein.

Multiple sources agree this meeting was a morale booster, and not a forum to point fingers.  Whether or not Tuter was simply playing to his base and not showing his cards shall be seen, but for now it seems his strongest public admonition for greater judicial accountability remains the April 23rd letter that’s posted below.

We’ve copied this entire post and emailed it to Tuter for review, in case we’ve gotten anything wrong or missed any important discussion points.  If he writes back, we’ll update …

* The Rules of Judicial Administration encourage circuits to assign judges to different divisions over time in order to allow them to become generally familiar with all types of cases and fully develop their capabilities. (referencing Rule 2.215(b)(3), Florida Rules of Judicial Administration)

      Actually, and in all fairness, Labarga was a great county judge.
      He was the judge on my divorce. My ex and I were very happy with him as it was a painless process, and the agreement worked well with absolutely no modifications needed for 8 years.

      But when a school district decided they’d get into the child trafficking business, Judge Damico, (a county criminal court), allow a school system to abduct the child, and then Judge Damico, ( a criminal court judge), “terminated parental rights, without the involvement of the parents, or family court.
      Judge Damico essentially abducted a child, for the usage of pedo’s, in violation of Labarga’s court order, and approved agreement.

      With this said, I don’t blame Labarga for avoiding the scum sitting on the benches of south Florida. Who’d want to address pedo’s judges in person. Not to mention the loss of revenue to DCF, Juvenile Justice, and the school districts.
      Interfering in the judicial sponsored Florida child trafficking , would make waves, because its a thriving industry.

      I just wanted to mention this, because I think Labarga gets a bad rap, because of the scum he’s surrounded by.

      Labarga is not scared. He’s a grat judge, but he’s speechless.
      And so we all would be if placed in a similar situation.

    Oh my. I don’t think it was such a good idea for the CJ of the FS to blow off a mandatory judiciary function, that was set up by the JQC CJ.

    1. The appearance of avoidance, is also an appearance of a possible impropriety. (Sunshine Obstruction).

    2. The avoidance in visiting a very troubled circuit, shaows an utter lack of accountability, that will ultimately render a learned behavior that will not be conducive to gaining public confidence. (see mission statement).

    3. 1 and 2, draws more UN-wanted attention from trained eyes.

    Its was a bad call by The JQC not to visit the disaster circuits of SEFL. Certainly there’s no vote of confidence here, for the obvious reasoning contained in 1 and 2.

    Ehrlich‘s parting shot to Tooty for telling her she was going to be moved. Hence her resignation and the following blowup.
    Toot’s got problems brewing he doesn’t even know about.
    The only things missing from the meeting were the party favors.

    An admin that’s more interested in stopping leaks as opposed to dealing with the systemic problem of badly behaving judges in Broward is doomed to failure.
    His letter proves the aforementioned.
    Tuter is in way over his bureaucratic head.
    When does Tuter have to run again to retain his seat ?

      How about keeping tabs on the judges he’s supposed to be supervising?
      He’s going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming before he learns Judicial Rotation is a must for Broward judges and in line with other circuits in the state. Allowing these judges to operate their own fiefdoms without being answerable is obviously the biggest problem facing Broward Courts. He just doesn’t get it. It’s human nature, particularly with Broward judges to feel too comfortable in an atmosphere where anything goes because they’ve been there way too long.
      Same old ineffective leadership as with Weinstein.

    Kind of funny how he burns the Supremes and doesn’t think it will come out. After his experience with some of his Judges one would imagine he would be more guarded. Or maybe he’s naive. Honestly if he had anything to do with Weinstein’s terrible PR I would agree it may be wise to assume the bumpy ride will continue.

      Broward litigants have complained to the Daily Business Review for more than three years alleging fraud in handling of docket entries in the office of Clerk of Court Brenda Forman, who was elected in November 2016 to succeed her husband Howard Forman.

      The Fourth DCA’s order appears to offer some insight. It came after Guy noticed a discrepancy in his court file.

    A shoot the messenger defense to placate the Judges and keep them voting for him. It’s always been what they want and what’s the easiest against what’s best for the public. Tick tick boom until the next explosive episode. One would think with a Finkelstein and a Blog exposure oversight reality they would go out of the way to fix the problems once and for all. Instead it’s business as usual at the expense of all Florida Judges. The Supreme Court can’t fix the JNC patronage issues or the clunkers that rise to the bench from Century City Phase 3, but they could easily put reforms in to control the eruptions. They sent the strongest message though by not coming. They don’t care either even with a poor woman dead.

    Rotation is an interesting issue but if some of the more problematic Judges can’t master basic aspects of criminal law and procedure after a decade or so of experience how pray tell will they manage in a different area of the law? Policemen with high school diplomas get it faster than some of these individuals plus how is it fair to civil litigants to have them messing with things.

      A good attorney educates the judge…. Easy enough.

      However, we shifted to the notion the the judge, “is” the court.
      This notion comes from the cowards beat down by judges, who they are not allowed to have a public opinion about.
      As an attorney, I can say that the JQC are as corrupt if not more, than our locals.

      Stop asking the causalities, for the solutions…..

        The criminal defendant or respondent is expendable.
        If the defendant is found guilty, the next time around he’ll pay more to a Florida Bar Member based on his/her’s past convictions.

        The Florida Bar’s Purpose is to Stifle Attorney’s , by controlling free speech.
        The Florida Bar feeds off humans.
        Can’t feed off humans, without creating the problems.
        Without judicial harms, no one would need to pay for a remedy. Membership fees and power drops.
        The Florida Bar bleeds humanity, and helps Teresa Williams cover up for those who traffic children.

        Teresa Williams sits on the committee as “Chair” of 17A.
        She’s a Queen in our democracy, and exempt from the rules, because she usher’s in darkness during her fraudulent dealings. She fell into an investigation involving multiple parties. But for that mistake, she would have slithered about indefinitely until taking over The Broward SA.

    On the bright side, Tuter could have reported that the blog readership is probably down since the guy with the Ahearn obsession, SFC, the guy with the incoherent posts about Palm Beach child molestations, and a few others have made the comments unbearable to read.

    An implied warning for judicial “leakers” to a blog that only wants to make them look bad, and a confirmation that the Chief Justice cancelled his trip to avoid a circus after the announcement appeared on the blog.

    If us, we don’t want to make them look bad, the do that themselves. We just expose it and it’s about time someone did.
