MOTION DENIED!

Rumor has it John Contini has denied the SAO’s Motion to Disqualify as legally insufficient (4:34 PM) …

UPDATESS: Contini denies Motion (5:02 PM)

“Public Defender Howard Finkelstein said it was “much ado about nothing.” He found it disingenuous of Satz, saying Satz has had little reaction when Broward judges have been brought up on DUI charges and in other investigations.

“We’ve had some real problems with the Broward judiciary,” Finkelstein said. “This is not even a ripple in the ocean of problems that we’ve had, yet this is the first time we hear from the State Attorney’s Office.”

    If Mikey is so unhappy with the Circuit Judges he ought to rely less on misguided ambushes and instead allow his qualified lawyers to run while keeping their jobs, even if they aren’t members of the tribe.

    “Some real problems with Broward Judges” don’t begin to explain the deplorable situation that exists here. And I’m not just talking about the three drunk judges recently either. Broward’s so called Justice System continues to be the biggest embarrassment to the State of Florida and yet nothing is ever done about it. Pat phrases don’t do anything to bring real change to a broken system either.

    Another defection from the illustrious Homicide Unit? Why not skip FTU all together before putting fresh recruits on the front lines? It worked well for Kaiser Wilhelm too.

    Whiney Weinstein and the whole bunch of Prancing Broward County Clowns in Black including all those in recovery, rehab and the drugstore junkies should get real jobs after being drug tested and sentenced to do community service for the rest of their lives for the injustices they’ve committed on taxpayers of this county and the lives they have ruined in the process of their drinking and drugging binges and political darkroom shape shifting routines ! BROWARD COUNTY JUSTICE HAS ITS OWN DEFINITION.

    CONTINI has opened the flood gates by this recent ruling. This should be interesting. And Weinstein is caught right in the middle.

    All that is needed to get Contini reversed is to cite the 3-20-15 Third DCA opinion on State v. Masten, 3D14-0817. It is right on point.

    Masten case easily distinguishable. Holden/Silvershein motion legally insufficient. They never alleged “an objectively reasonable, well-grounded fear of not receiving a fair and impartial trial.”

    Contini to be affirmed by the 4th DCA

    I agree. That silly email is insufficient to establish “an objectively reasonable, well-grounded fear of not receiving a fair
    and impartial trial.”
    4th PCAs it.

    Now Weinstein is in required payback mode for having garnered enough votes to remain CJ, just barely that is ! It’ll actually give him something to do without a docket of his own ! He’s about the only CJ in the state that doesn’t carry a docket so we wouldn’t want him to become rusty ! LOL

    Jim McClane would have never filed the motion and would have had the nuts to tell Mike, Nope ain’t filing it, find someone else.
    Joel Silvershein is a Satzite and Pete Holden now has to tow the company line. So sad mr Holden, you were once a straight shooter.

      Give Pete a break. Things are like a thousand times better since he took over. With both Lee Cohen and Jeff Marcus gone at least a semblance of rationality is now in place. It’s not his decision what cases are filed but a lot more of the penny-ante Broward specials go away now then they ever did before.

    The problem with planet earth is no one wants to be here and by the time you’re old enough to have enough going on to make it bearable your mind and body starts to fail.
