MOVEMENT …

Peter Weinstein sent the following email this morning:

“I want to update you on the assignments of our newest judges.

Judge Jose Izquierdo will be going to dependency and Judge Michael Davis will be going to first appearance court.

Judge (Jay) Hurley has requested a criminal division so he will be assuming a county criminal division.”

      Davis will do a much better job than the TV ham Hurley. He’s almost as bad as Help Myself Howard!

        Like who cares how many disgruntled public defenders quit. They been doing nothing but firing blanks in court lately. Makes my job easier. Where do they find some of these people anyway? They act like they haven’t been toilet trained yet !

      Our office has become a pretty bad place to work as many are quitting for a whole lot of reasons not least of which it’s become so toxic around here you’re afraid to do anything. Then of course we keep getting more and more cases dumped on us with no pay raises while the supervisors are getting top pay and handle no cases of their own at all.

      Seems like half the PDs office has quit. Maybe the do nothing supervisors will take some cases now. Gordo will never be the next PD if he never distinguishes himself with a case. It’s easier just to pretend I guess.

    Looks like ALL of the baillifs will be answering questions very soon about cheating on a mandatory federal security test that they were given all of the answers to by a bso supervisor. I’m sure that bso is not happy about this considering that they received a federal grant , lots of money, for the baillifs to take and pass the test. But I’m also sure that the Feds DID NOT want them getting the answers to the test and cheating on it. What was the point of taking a security test if you are cheating on it. Does anyone out there know who the supervisor is that gave out the answers. This is going to get very interesting when the baillifs are brought in and questioned. How bought fraud, lying, total unprofessional behavior, public corruption just for starters. These baillifs are out of control.

    I have heard from numerous bailiffs about this federal FEMA security test that was given to all of them by the bailiff supervisors and required to pass in order for bso to get federal money in the way of a grant. The bailiffs have been heard saying that they were given the answers by the three bailiff supervisors. I don’t think that’s what FEMA had in mind when the test was taken. I don’t think they would approve of bso employees being given the answers to the test. This is very disturbing if this is in fact what was done. The entire integrity of the security test would have been compromised and not be worth anything at all, totally useless and fraudulent act committed by bso bailiffs and supervisors in charge. How can these individuals be considered honest or trustworthy. And these bailiffs are in charge of courtroom and courthouse security. This makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and not trusting of these individuals.

    I’ve been informed by several sources that upon taking and passing the FEMA security test the bailiffs all received official FEMA certificates of completetion. Only problem is that NONE of the bailiffs passed the test without cheating. The bailiffs supervisor’s gave them the answers. Can anyone say fraudulent, FALSIFIED OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS. But the bailiffs did get the FEMA grant money which is always a good thing even if it was done illegally ???

    So the bailiffs are a convicted pedophile in prison. A thief stealing money, watches and pens from the items left behind by people entering the courthouse. Another stealing and embezzling money with his wife. Another one having his picture taken while he’s sleeping while he’s supposed to be guarding prisoners. And bailiff supervisors giving the answers to a fema security test to ALL the bailiffs so they can defraud the feds out of grant money. But yet all of these idiots and losers can skip going thru courthouse security checkpoints while the rest of us that work here are subjected to going thru security. What’s wrong with this picture. Liars, cheats, thieves and do nothings that sleep on the job are trusted. What a joke.

    The deal with the water is that supposedly some of the bailiffs have been peeing in the water pitchers used in the courtrooms before they fill them with water. I suggest bringing your own water, I don’t trust the bailiffs. Disgusting.

    I remember years ago a certain bailiff (court deputy then) used to start every morning by rinsing out the Judge’s water jug with piss in the back bathroom. The Judge was a pig so nobody cared.

    I remember that bailiff that used to rinse out the water pitcher for the judge with piss. . Funny thing is that he still works as a bailiff over in the north wing. This is common practice with the bailiffs when they don’t like someone. My advice….bring your own water.

    The judges aren’t the only ones on the movement cycle. There is going to be movement concerning the bailiffs also, right out of the courthouse. Next year they are all being replaced by corrections deputies and quite frankly it really is about time. Most of the judges are in complete agreement with this decision made by the county and the sheriff. A very smart move towards moving towards professionalism like is in place at the West Palm beach courthouse. A new courthouse deserves professional BSO staffing. Kudos to all involved.

    Bso bailiffs……cheating on security test….A bso bailiff serving prison time for molesting little boys….bso bailiff caught stealing watches, pens and anything else he could get his hands on that was left behind by people entering the courthouse….bso bailiff caught stealing and embezzling money with his wife…bso sexual predator who was fired…but unlucky for us given his job back and is working once again in the main courthouse, lucky us…..bso bailiff sleeping in the jury room while on duty while his judges judicial assistant is practically assaulted by a defendant in her office and she’s yelling for help…bso bailiff having his photo taken while he’s sound asleep while on duty guarding the door where inmates enter the courthouse….bso bailiff caught illegally killing alligators and lets not the bailiff that attempted to murder a prostitute by stabbing her numerous times….and the bso bailiff that viciously attacked and raped his own wife, a fellow bso bailiff , and tried to kill her…and the list goes on. Yet these are the people in charge of our security. Yet not one of single bso bailiff is required to go thru ANY SECURITY CHECKPOINTS when they enter the courthouse. While the rest of us that work here are subjected to going thru security every single day and time that we come to work to be SUPPOSEDLY protected in the hallways and courtrooms by these people that most of us consider much worse than the inmates in the courthouse. Time for the judges to stand up for the rest of the employees that work here and demand professional law enforcement working in the courthouse.

    Hey truthseeker I think that the bailiff that you’re talking about sleeping in the jury room while the judges judicial assistant almost got attacked by a defendant works for Horowitz. That happened a while ago. But don’t worry the bailiff was told not to do it again. All better now. I’m sure the judicial assistant feels safe now.

    The whole courthouse is a total joke and out of control. The chief judge does absolutely nothing positive whatsoever. The Judges are no where to be found after lunch, courtrooms locked up and on Fridays you’re lucky if you find 5 judges in the entire courthouse that are working. The judges job should be considered the highest paid part time job known to man. And the baillifs hiding in whatever rat hole that they can find to sleep in. The judges and baillifs are the laziest bunch of worthless people in the entire courthouse.

    That was a fake posting you imposter. I sometimes post anonymously to make fun of Bailiffs so no one knows its me. I just quietly in the 3rd floor cafeteria listening nd waiting taking notes. Just because I partake in the occasional skin churro means nothing. I dress like a dapper don; I buy my suits from only the finest the Mall has to offer, my ties are made from the woven silk of only the finest silk worms. Although none of my suits fit me correctly and I always look like I rolled out of bed do not be fooled, my Nova education assisted me in becoming the biggest tool bag in the court house. My legal knowledge is only rivaled by the finest lawyers in the building. Some people ask who am I? I am a failed lawyer; a total loser; I charge 2500 a DUI can u guess who the great one is?

    It’s reached critical mass in PD as many leave to seek better opportunities for better pay and without the mismanagement that’s caused the problems to begin with.

One of them tried to sell me a NY Yankees baseball cap the other day and when I told him I wasn’t a Yankees fan got really nasty and told me I was in the wrong courtroom then and told me to remain seated and stay quiet. I couldn’t believe it. It looked like they hired this dude out of a labor pool or something. Really unprofessional. Said he does weekend security at the Flea Market on weekends because the pay is so shitty and the pay and benefits are much better up north. I felt like asking him then what’s he doing down here!!! He had a whole bunch of caps in a backpack right in the courtroom. Better than fiction.

    All talk and no action. I was treated rudely by Usan’s loudmouth bailiff, and I had the balls to complain to the Judge. (Via an e-mail to the JA as well as her direct supervisor.) The JA said, “That’s the first complaint we have gotten about her.” I am shocked, I made a complaint from one day in front of her. How can that be the first complaint? You all need to complain as well or nothing will happen. So instead of being all talk, actually do something people. That is, if you actually want change, and not just bitch about stuff.

Even Judge Usan’s female in-court clerk is a total angel. All you cowards that know nothing about what you are talking about are really disgusting. Judge Usan has the finest staff in his courtroom and you ought to have gotten your facts straight before you ever opened your stinking mouths about those bailiffs. What you said about the male bailiff in that courtroom is also false. He is just a friendly guy. Stop reading the wrong meanings into innocent behavior, you perverted low lifers. These bailiffs have done nothing to deserve your foul mouths.

    From the judges on down, it’s a bad joke in Broward and not a very well kept secret despite their efforts to conceal it. Broward needs to be managed by an oversight committee that doesn’t answer to anybody in this sink hole and reported on a biannual basis; everything from judge’s schedules to court personnel. The amount of waste in this place is unbelievable even by governmental standards. Judges that hardly work to uncertified bailiffs running amok present a very real threat to public confidence. You add to that the apparent inability or downright refusal to report this stuff to the public by an inept media and you have a fiscally fatal combination, if not a dangerous situation that continues to plague Broward County Court System.
    From drunk judges to bailiff hawkers peddling their wares in the courthouse , Broward takes the cake.

    It’s definatlely a toss up as to who are the laziest , the judges or the baillifs. The difference is that we are supposed to rely and trust the baillifs to be vigilant and know their jobs concerning security in the courtrooms in specific and the courthouse in general. How can we trust the baillifs when many have been arrested for violent felony crimes in very recent times to cheating on security test. The level of confidence that 99% of the people that work at the courthouse is very low, very few trust or believe in the bailiffs or their competence to do their jobs in an emergency security situation. And when people do complain about problems with specific bailiffs the supervisors do absolutely nothing to correct the problem embolding the bailiff in question even more so. At best the only thing the supervisors do is shuffle the problematic baillif somewhere else where someone else gets stuck with them. And the baillifs know that they will put somewhere out of sight and most times in a spot where they have to do even less work. That’s a real joke of way to handle the problem baillif. I , along with a lot of other people here look forward to the day when all of the baillifs are replaced by trained, professional court security personnel.

    It is a fact that the bailiffs, all of the bailiffs cheated on a federal security test. The baillifs were given the answers to the test by the baillifs supervisors who should be fired at the very least for committing fraud and falsification of official documents. If questioned, the bailiffs are not going to lie to cover up for their supervisors who were the root of the scandal. Bso what is going on at the courthouse with these bailiffs ??

    Have you ever had a problem with ANY of the bailiffs and reported them to the bailiffs supervisors and been totally ignored. Are you upset and angered that the bailiffs have been given the answers and cheated on a federal test with the direct help of their supervisors and they take security at the courthouse as a joke by cheating on this security test putting all of us that work in this courthouse at risk. Are you fed up with the incompetence of the bailiffs that are supposed to be watching out for everyone. Do something about it. Call BSO Affairs at 954-321-1100 and let them know what is going on down here. Maybe if enough people call in something will be done. This cheating scandal is really the last straw of incompetence by the bailiffs and their supervisors with all of them disregarding our safety. Enough is enough. This type of behavior needs to be reported to the investigators. The bailiffs office is out of control and will do nothing to stop this from going on, the supervisors are the biggest problem in the courthouse. I encourage everyone to call 954-321-1100 and inform them as to what’s going on down here.

    In case you’re wondering what is going to happen to the bailiffs. Absolutely nothing. They are above all of the rules that the rest of us must follow. They are rude, yell at people, push people around and come and go as they please without ever having to go thru security like the rest of us. They are way above the rest of us that are made to follow the rules. They are even allowed to cheat on security test without worrying about getting in trouble. It’s great to be a bailiff.

    Bailiff update…..The bailiff that was caught sleeping in the jury room while the judges judicial assistant was being assaulted by a defendant has been sent to work for another judge in the north wing. He was not disciplined in any way shape or form. Just reassigned to another judge. Now he’s another judicial assistants problem. How nice.

      Weinstein like the bureaucrat he is will simply shove it off as someone else’s responsibility as he usually does. What do u expect from a chief judge that’s too lazy to even carry a court docket like they do in every other circuit. These fat cats get into office and it’s a smooth ride to retirement doing as little as possible except honoring themselves. This is Broward County where the sleazy judicial politics is nothin more than a fast track to a free meal. And this dude will eat everything that’s not nailed down. It’s the truth. Then ask Tallahassee for more judges to make up for the ones that do practically nothing as it is but politic to stay in office so they can suck some more at the public trough. Governor Scott needs to institute a judicial oversight committee to do a Cost Analysis on just how much these judicial politicians are costing the citizens of the State of Florida. I’d bet you it’s shocking.
      As far as these moron bailiffs are concerned: fire them all and put real certified deputies in court. They can keep an eye of the judges and report back to Scott. They are just as bad for allowing these jokers to operate a flea market out of the courtroom.

But never fear because they are untouchable as witnessed by their actions every single day. Stealing, sleeping on the job, cheating on test and being just plain rude and extremely obnoxious are job qualifications for being a bailiff along with an IQ of 50. Gotta love these clowns.

He’s very friendly as long as you buy a cap or two from him but if you don’t , watch out because he becomes very nasty. Like a regular Jekyll and Hyde.

    You need to move on. The super beautiful bailiff with the big brown eyes and the big bazooms has left you for good. Yes, it hurts. It will for a long time. Yes, it could have been handled better. But love is a tricky game. Because she is having another bailiff’s baby so soon, it must hurt twice as bad. But this nonstop rambling screed against all bailiffs is off the mark. It highlights your own pain but it won’t bring her back. The bailiffs are good people and just because you feel betrayed by a couple of them is not a good reason to hurl insults at all. Get some help and maybe look for love somewhere else, like maybe the Clerk’s office or a judicial conference.

A bailiff is arrested and is serving prison time for being a pedophile. A bailiff is caught sound asleep in his courtroom jury room while the judges JA is accosted in chamber’s by a defendant and assaulted while she’s screaming for help the bailiff continues to sleep. Another bailiff is fired for the a sexual predator but rehired and brought back to work in this courthouse again as a bailiff. Another bailiff is caught watching porn at work while on duty and still works here as a bailiff. Another bailiff is arrested for embezzlement and grand theft. Another bailiff who performs sexual favors for Attorneys while on duty in this courthouse for money. Bailiff supervisors who assist the bailiffs on a federal test by giving them the answers to the test. Bailiffs who walk around the courthouse giving out legal advice as if though they were Attorneys. Bailiffs hiding and caught sleeping on duty while they are supposed to be watching inmates. Bailiffs complaining about their jobs and making derogatory and desparaging remarks about the sheriff’s office and the supervisors that they work for in the presence of the general public. And these same bailiffs actually wonder why no one respects or thinks very highly of them. Gee I wonder why.

    Did the bailiffs cheat on a federal test and violate rules and regulations and commit fraud obtaining federal certification ? If they did they not only have violated ethics rules and fraud, they as a whole have lost their credibility and trust of everyone that they come into contact here at the courthouse. They are supposed to be above that type of behavior and deceit. They simply have to call in the bailiffs one at a time and question them in regards to the test that was administered by the supervisors and let’s see what is said. Numerous people in the courthouse have heard bailiffs laughing about taking the test and cheating on it. This matter can be cleared up very easily. Question the bailiffs.

    I’ve been informed that the three bailiffs supervisors were not involved in supplying the bailiffs with the correct answers on the federal test that they all cheated on. Word is that only one supervisor was involved in giving the answers to the test. Once the bailiffs start getting questioned individually the truth will come out. I seriously doubt that every single bailiff will lie to the investigators when they are questioned or when the other supervisors are questioned. The supervisor that cheated on the test was untruthful, committed fraud, forged official federal certificates, and various other BSO violations of policy, including violating code of ethics. Sources say that the bailiffs were instructed and ordered to cheat on the test to obtain a federal grant from fema.

    Apparently the other supervisors had brains or enough integrity to want no part of the test. That is very possible that they are honest. I would like to have faith in someone within the bailiffs group. If so I am certain that they will not sit idle if questions are asked of them. This is just getting more and more involved as time goes on. And the more people involved in this the more that someone is going to spill the beans when confronted with questions by investigating parties. A real shame that they had to resort to cheating , on a federal exam at that. Very dumb.

    Who cares what a bunch of loud mouthed bailiffs do. They are as big a disgrace as some of the drunk or drugged uploud mouthed imbecile judges in Broward as we’ve seen ove the past few years in the media. Never seen a bigger bunch of losers parading around like clowns in half the courtrooms where there’s actually a Broward judge working. The other half are empty because everyone knows Broward judges hardly do anything and never after lunch or on Thursdays or Fridays. That’s after these morons have kept everyone waiting for hours Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
    All the idiot bailiffs are out when the new courthouse is finally up and running anyway. All I can say is that it’s long overdue. All of them should be hung out to dry from what I’ve seen go on with these buffoons acting out in court. And the judges are just as bad. You’d think every one of them take their que from Judge Judy or something, a regular Clownhouse in Broward.
    They need to shove off and start their bs somewhere else, preferably out of public view. I’ve actually heard jurors talking about how unprofessional they thought the Broward Courts are! No wonder why nobody wants to serve.
    I don’t know where they found these people or who screens them or what the supposed qualifications are to be a Broward bailiff, but the should all be herded to busses and removed to Indian Town in the Everglades. Poor Indians…

    In response to ” Hang it up ” you obviously work in the courthouse and are witness to the arrogant and lazy judges and equally moronic and infantile baillifs. I’m not sure what can be done about the judges but the problems with the baillifs is actually a very easy and legal solution. Instead of giving the baillifs a written test where they can all cheat give them an actual fitness for duty test in relation to their job. 99% of these individuals what not come even close to passing a fitness test. Most of the baillifs we see walking around the courthouse or working in courtrooms are either in their 80s and can barely walk or hear, others are so overweight that they couldn’t move out of their own way to help in an emergency situation. Several of them don’t even speak English, one of walks the halls shuffeling along barely able to walk and wearing double hearing aids. Another tall one can barely walk, it takes him 10 minutes to walk a distance of 5 feet. Others are out constantly injured or sick and put on desk duty instead of doing baillifs duties. When does this all stop ? When they are given a fitness test the joke called baillifs that has been imposed on the rest of us that work at the courthouse and have to rely on these individuals to protect us will be over. The courthouse needs and deserves professional security personnel not old overweight washed up has beens that can’t even hear or walk.

    Most of them are retirees moved down here from New York because that’s all you ever hear them talk about to anyone who is polite enough not to walk away from them. There’s even a few selling NY YANKEES baseball caps. It’s really comical the way these old coots stumble around blabbing about how things are run so much better up north. This is when they’re not on some power trip yelling at everyone or telling you where or where not to sit in a courtroom, like I don’t know because I’ve been in that division longer than they have.
    They’ve also turned the front conference room into a pig sty with their microwave ovens backpacks, sneakers, magazines, soup cans, clothes and junk all over the place so that it looks and smells like some dirty old closet instead of where I can meet and discuss my case with my clients. It’s a total mess.
    These rundown have beens have the run of the entire courtroom while the judge looks the other way. I’ve gotten to the point that I ignore them completely. They are more in the way than performing any real function besides turning the place into a flop house for them and their buddies.
    They need to go and be replaced by professional deputies as soon as they can manage it because it’s bad.

    PD’s office is a complete wreck. attorneys are sick and tired of being dumped on. Supervisors carry no cases. More people leaving all the time. There are only so many cases we can handle as these idiots that haven’t been in a courtroom for years are scared to even appear in court for anything and continue to divide the cases among those of us remaining. Fair should be fair but supervisors run from any work like rats from a sinking ship. Howard doesn’t care because he’s to busy doing Help Me Howard and the rest of the supervisors. don’t stay more than a couple of hours a day if that. I’ve personally noticed their assigned parking spots remain empty all day and they don’t even return their phone calls. It’s no wonder nobody can figure out what these people actually do if anything.

    Sure, it’s easy to spout his line of Oh, we have attorneys leaving all the time, it’s part of the normal turnover within the office and we can’t give many raises too often because of the State Budget and everybody is just going to have to knuckle down and do more work for less money.
    But what he’s not telling everybody and hopes they don’t look it up on the State Employee Website is that supervisors are getting paid top dollar, some of them over 120 and over to sit on their asses and do nothing. That’s right, zero cases. And there are a lot of them. This represents big money.
    Some are even back after entering the State drop program for a second time making as much as when they left the first time.
    Do the math yourself and pull it up on the State Website.
    We all know the names so it’s easy to do.
    All this while continuing to croak the same line at meetings over and over again.
    I don’t know about you, but getting all these cases dumped on us is really gettin old when you have to hear the same lame excuses over and over again. He must think everybody is stupid or something.
    Most of the supervisors haven’t been near a courtroom in years. Talk about inequality. I’d like to hear him give a speech on salary inequality next time.

    The bailiffs situation can be easily remedied with a fitness for duty test. None of them will pass. All would be gone and it will be legally done. If you’re not fit for duty you shouldn’t be a bailiff in charge of our security. Very simple and not hard to figure out.

    Has anyone ever seen the inside of the supposed attorney/client meeting rooms is the north wing courtrooms, of course no has the baillifs keep them locked. The bailiffs have turned them ALL into their private office’s with microwaves, personal decor, pictures on the walls, TV and DVD players so that they can watch movies while they are supposed to be working. The bailiffs in judge Holmes even have mood lighting with the little lamps and aromatic air fresheners so when they hang out in there they can feel at home. And the baillifs in Usans courtroom guard their little office as if tho it were fort knox , keeping it locked and not allowing attorneys to use it for its intended purpose. These two clowns, Ms. Big mouth, Mr. Macho stud bailiff will go running to the judge if you question them about keeping it locked. Why is court administration doing something about these baillifs taking over and locking these rooms. Why aren’t the baillifs supervisors walking around doing their jobs checking on this, oh wait a minute, I forgot that the supervisors are too busy helping the bailiffs downstairs cheat on federal security test. The baillifs in this courthouse are the worst example of bso employees ever to be seen. Even the jurors in the courtrooms are totally amazed at the arrogance and incompetent nature of these baillifs.

    The baillifs need those rooms to remain locked. Where do you expect these poor professional hard working protectors of courthouse security and court staff to be able to sleep, watch TV and DVDs, hang out with the rest of our fellow hard working protectors of the courthouse, and on occasions be able to get laid. Yes laid. It has happened on occasion and the rooms are perfect for a quick stress reliever. Attorneys should talk to their clients in their OWN office not OURS.

    Hey I remember the married baillif that was banging the married JA in the north wing a few years back and they were caught by another baillif in the courtroom jury room screwing and were both turned in to the baillifs supervisors. Very embarrassing but nothing happened except that the baillif got transferred to another courtroom and the JA stayed where she was. Now she had to walk to the west wing to get her daily screwing. The baillif eventually was arrested for domestic violence against his wife and nothing happened with that so he got promoted to work as a correction deputy in the jail. Last we heard is that he still comes into the courthouse to service the JA on a regular basis. Everyone concerned is very happy.

    I’m sure all the sex stuff is untrue but I would have to agree with the position regarding the unprofessional environment in Judge Michael Usan’s courtroom.

Since all of the bailiffs are friends with the defendants they will take a sincere interest in doing a good job for their clients.

    We had a bailiff fill in for our regular bailiff in court the other day that was 5 foot tall and looked like she weighed 250 lbs and the best part was that she barely spoke English and was totally lost as to what to do in the courtroom and she’s been a bailiff for about 10 years. Really, where do they find these people at. She was a total waste in the courtroom running around screwing up all the paperwork up and getting in everyones way. Not that the regular courtroom bailiff is any better but at least he speaks English and tells everyone how great he was when he worked for the Feds before he retired and became a bailiff. He should have stayed retired. And the female should have NEVER BEEN HIRED.

    You are so right. Our baillif thinks that she knows more than everyone in the courtroom about everything. She’s always trying to tell the probation officer, the clerk and even the judge on one occasion how to do their jobs. She never shuts up. And she’s a total blubbering idiot to make matters worse and surely not physically fit for the job, one look at her and you need not ask why. Give her a physical or better yet a pyscological test and she would absolutely fail both. And we are stuck with her, no other judge will have her.

When the day comes that we have a problem in the courtroom I’m sure that we will trampled by our baillif being the first one running for the door to safety. He always makes it a point to tell the entire staff that they are not sworn deputies and don’t get paid enough to get involved and end up getting hurt. What is the point of having these idiots in the courtroom. We need real security in the courtrooms, not these useless wannabe has beens that come to work just to socialize and hang out and collect another check on top of their retirement and social security check’s.

    Buddy Nevins, Bob Norman and Bill Gellin should follow up on a lot of these blog post concerning the behavior and actions of the baillifs which are really unacceptable and in some cases criminal. Cheating on federal security exams, stealing peoples belongings that are left behind, having sex with attorneys, secretaries and each other in the courthouse while they are supposedly working, selling trinkets and whatever else they are selling in courtrooms and imposing themselves on attorneys and other courtroom staff to buy these items, borrowing money from attorneys and never repaying, bad mouthing the very agency that they work for and get paid by. These bailiffs show no loyalty to anyone but themselves and are always looking for an angle to cheat and scam someone. They really are a disgraceful bunch of ungrateful individuals who really should be grateful of the job that they have. Nome of them could qualify to clean dirty toilet bowls. Yet they all walk around like they are the elite of the courthouse. They act like the courthouse would shut down without them. Please, get over yourselves, you are all replaceable and very easily I might add and very soon you will be. The powers that be at BSO have had enough of the obscene and childish behavior from the entire group of immature, unprofessional individuals known unfortunately as bso baillifs.

Question these supervisors and see how they start to sweat and squirm like the useless worms that they are. Bob Norman and Bill Gelin are going to be all over this. Everyone needs to call and complain to all that will listen.

She’ll probably want to be a supervisor so she’ll have nothing to do and no cases. Cushy job.

    Start pulling in the bailiffs one at a time and question them about what the cheating on the test is all about. Everyone of them will give up the supervisors who made them cheat on the Federal test. They are not going to take the blame for someone else, supervisors or not. The supervisors are the ones responsible for the cheating on the test and are untrustworthy,untruthful and totally unethical just for starters. They committed fraud and signed off on federal documents so that they would get a federal grant. This is illegal in so many ways.

    Apparently the rest of us have to adhere to rules and regulations and follow the law. The bailiffs and their supervisors are totally exempt from any rules or following the law. They cheat on a federal exam to defraud the government out of money and falsified federal documents and give certificates to all of the bailiffs showing that they all passed the courthouse security test when in fact every one of them cheated. This was told to several people in my courtroom by one of the bailiffs who was laughing about taking the test and scoring 100% on it even though she didn’t even read the questions on any section of the three part test. This is outright fraudulent behavior and should not be tolerated. These bailiffs need to be compelled to answer questions regarding this total scam and breach of trust put upon the rest of us that work in this courthouse and depend on these bailiffs for our safety and security while we are here at work. This is totally unacceptable behavior by the bailiffs and the supervisors.

    By any chance is this the same bailiff that likes to give out legal advice to defendants and inmates. She thinks she’s a lawyer, probation officer and judge all rolled on one.

      Actually do something ? Sure she does. She’s out campaigning and the Fink is allowing it, promoting it and fully behind her gig to become a judge. Wonder what kind of tail spins going to occur after she loses ? Ain’t gonna be good for old Benson having to carry a caseload. These government pimps got it made in the shade with a boss like the Fink. They can devote all their time to promoting themselves while getting paid for it from the public trough. At least Satz makes them quit before running for judge. Whose got the best work ethic ?

    For the individuals writing about the baillifs and the PDs I commend you and kudos to all of you. Everything that you are writing about, especially concerning the baillifs is absolutely 100% true and accurate with the exception of the baillifs supervisors being involved in the cheating on the test. It was not SUPERVISORS, it was only ONE supervisor that gave out and helped the baillifs cheat on the Federal FEMA security test. This supervisor was untrustworthy, untruthful and committed fraud by falsifying Federal Certificates that each baillif received after supposedly taking a four hour test in 30 minutes. The baillifs didn’t even have to read the questions. They just had to fill in the correct answers given to them by the baillif supervisor. And no it was NOT Carole Eddey. This test was taken to receive federal grant money. And this supervisor committed a total and complete scam and fraud concerning this test. The employees of this courthouse are entitled to know what kind of supervisor they are dealing with when they call the baillifs office and request to speak to a supervisor in regards to any bso bailiff matters. Don’t blame the baillifs, they did what they were told to do by this certain supervisor. A lot of the baillifs were very apprehensive in taking this test in this manner and feel very uncomfortable with the whole problem as it keeps unfolding. A few bailiffs have voiced their concerns with several people in the courtrooms already and are worried about the consequences. To all of you gathering information on this matter, keep on doing what you are doing. The truth will come out.

    Truthseeker where are you getting you’re information. All of this crap going on with the baillifs is like a soap opera. My god , does this bunch of misfits answer to anybody. They seem to be totally out of control and creating a really bad situation with security in the courthouse. Are these people held accountable for anything that they do ? This is totally nuts.

    Do the people at FEMA know how their test was administered to the baillifs. I really doubt that they are aware of any of this. Bso should be ashamed that the baillifs have to stoop to such a low and deceitful level to pass a security test. A test that affects every single person that works in this courthouse. What a real shame.

      A whole bunch of attorneys have quit the PD. They have their reasons but most of it has to do with how much the supervisors are gettin paid for handling no clases at all while the rest of us can go eat cake. Something like 30 people have left.

    Apparently what is being said about cheating on a test is true. We were told that one of the baillifs even commented about all of them cheating on the FEMA test and she was laughing and making a joke of it in their morning meetings on the third floor with two supervisors present during the meeting. Haha very funny at all of our expense at the courthouse. And keep letting these idiot baillifs bypass security when they come and goals they please in and out of the courthouse while the rest of us that are honest and actually work for a living have to be practically stripped searched when we come to work. Baillifs=losers.

    There is nothing to say about the in court clerks. They actually work for a living and didn’t have to have one of their supervisors give them the answers to a federal security test. Clerks are alot smarter than that., getting involved in cheating and fraud. Bailiffs are really stupid to do that and think no one would find out. All we have to do is talk to certain bailiffs that can’t keep their big mouths shut about anything and the whole courthouse knows everything. What a bunch of cheating do nothings. Great security. I feel so safe.

    Everyone knows that if you want to know anything that’s going on in the courthouse just ask a bailiff. They will be glad and more than willing to get diarrhea of the mouth and even tell you everything that they do that they shouldn’t be doing. They are like canarys, always singing. The third floor is the best source of information by the door where the prisoners are taken in and out of the courthouse. There’s always a group of bailiffs hanging around there running their mouths. They are a wealth of information.

    This is Broward. If she were really related to Benson, she’d be handing out Benson’s campaign literature to prospective jurors and the Fink would have no comment for once ! Lol

    We also believe that they are related. There is a very strong resemblance between the two of them. Nothing wrong with having mother and daughter working in the courthouse. We think it is great.

    Hey if I was related in any way shape or form to that obnoxious, rude know it all excuse of a bailiff I wouldn’t want anyone to know either. I don’t blame Benson for keeping it quiet all these years. Would you want to admit that she’s related to you. I’m talking about the bailiff in 336 not Benson. Benson is a sweetheart.

      Benson is just another p.d. That’s lookin to vacate Howard and Cathy’s grip of tyranny. That usually means she doesn’t want to handle any cases and wants to put as much space between them and her paycheck… She’s not alone.

      Benson is a terrible attorney that can’t win a case. She cried when a guy got convicted of raping and killing a 90 year old woman. She is not a good trial lawyer and not a good person. I bet the reason howard wants her to win is so he won’t have to carry her anymore.

    I would NEVER admit to being related to one of these useless stupid bailiffs either. Bunch of freaks and losers. Don’t get caught in a room by yourself with one of them.

    Everytime I see one of the bailiffs walking around I start to laugh. Where do they find such old decrepit has been and just plain loser’s to work as bailiffs? Obviously the standards are way low with zero physical or psychological test being given. Do they even condition background checks on these criminals. Apparently not judging by how many get arrested and sent to prison. These are the people in charge of courthouse security. How very sad.

    If you think it was wrong for the bailiffs to cheat on a federal fema security test that they received a federal grant for then let fema know. Contact Tony Russell superintendent of emergency management at training.fema.gov they will be glad to hear from you.

    The PDs office is reaping the consequences of years of bad micromanagement and even worse salary inequalities. Most of the supervisors are raking in the big bucks for doing nothing , handling no cases, and spending little time in the office to be of help to anyone ( Note their empty assigned parking spaces most of the day). The problem is exacerbated by Finkelstein who cares not about how the office is being mismanaged and continues to look the other way while focusing his time and energy criticizing the judiciary while running employees for office. Nobody is fooled. That’s why so many people are leaving the PDs office and even more considering leaving.
