    Several bottles of boos in the trunk? Maybe she and Imperato had been hooting it up at hooters with a couple of Italian stallions looking for a good time and this was just the warm up to something bigger. Two more Broward Judges with a taste for Tequila.
    Makes u wonder just what the Broward Judicial Scene is really all about. But I guess it’s been pretty well documented with how many judges now?

    What’s with judges in Broward anyway? Glad I don’t get down to that cesspool very often. Say what you want to about Miami, but we don’t have judges falling like flies like you guys in Broward. Why did Weinstein ever put her back on the bench to begin with? What was the guy thinking?

    Where does this chick live anyway? It looks like some kind of crack house. Really bad mugshot. Never remember her looking like that. She must have been on a real roll.

    So Howard has sympathy for Giselle because she was one of his but not for Imperato because she was a prosecutor. What a laugh. You are a sad and pathetic little man Help Myself Howard.

    I guess she can kiss it goodbye. Such a nice person every time I had any contact with her. Too sad really. With everything going for her, addiction is a hard habit to break. What she was put back in drug court for was really a bad idea. She got a raw deal ever thinking she’d keep it under control and as far as I’m concerned, Judge Weinstein should have spent less time making excuses for her and gotten her help instead. He hasn’t done much for this circuit at all since becoming chief judge in my opinion.

    To compare Imperato to Pollach is like comparing a harpy to an angel … Imperato’s been a standard barstool fixture for years. Pollach just fell hard off the wagon with a hard landing.

    What a laugh! Really? When was the last time that Imperato came to work drunk? When was the last time that she every missed a day of work or got there late because she was hung-over? When is the last time her recreational activities interfered in the lives of defendants? When is the last time anyone every complained of Imperato yelling obscenities at any one? Seems like she has quietly done pretty well since she was arrested. You Howard apologists are so incredible. Take off the blinders! Stop drinking the Koolade!

    Just when you think judges in Broward can’t get any worse, you realize again that apparently they can and do.

    The lack of leadership among Broward Judges has now approached the outside boundary of absurdity.

    Where next you ask? I have a feeling before November that there are several more connected with the Rothstein scam that will be stretching the net of credulity once again.

    There needs to be a great deal more oversight of Broward Judges whether it’s the FEDS or some other outside agency, for as we have seen, the JQC has done little to curb errant judges or to set a proper example to discourage behavior such has been exhibited in Broward County for a very long time.

    Apparently the mainstream media cares little for the kind of quality judicial officers the public deserves and pays for.

    Judicial apologists in Broward can’t even begin to come up with enough excuses for this stuff with a straight face anymore.

    We all know these are a bunch of self serving buffoons, but shouldn’t there be some way to rein these jokers in without having to wait for indictments?

    Peter Weinstein is a bureaucratic fool with little or no leadership role and should be replaced by someone who will at least try to improve the situation.

    Sorry, for lawyers and judges, out of work activities (even things they say or write) ARE often the basis for disciplinary actions.

    The JQC/Supremes should have suspended her back in December and ordered real, not convenient detox and rehab. The JQC protected her because they like her politics. This is what the JQC/Supremes/Florida Bar do: They protect you if you are “wired” into their network, and they target you if you blow the whistle on their network. Read it and weep:

    Re: Sworn Complaint Re Broward Judge Giselle Pollack

    Dear Mr. Schneider:

    South Florida media are awash in news stories, each of which is corroborating the others, that the above judge is chemically impaired.

    See, for example, http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/pulp/2013/12/broward_judge_reportedly_came.php

    Why has the JQC not, on an emergency basis, suspended her from the bench, as required by law?

    I solemnly swear, under penalty of perjury, that the foregoing facts are true, correct, and complete, to the best of my knowledge, so help me God.

    I don’t believe there is any coming back from this for Pollack. The drivers of the involved car(s) could have lost their lives. As it is, they went to the hospital with injuries.
    I don’t believe it’s a question of second chances, which she had already had, but merely a matter of protecting the public from yet another completely inebriated broward county judge from what I read in the police report.
    First Imperato with her drunken escapade which could have ended equally as badly with property damage and personal injury, and now Judge Pollack where people could have lost their lives because of her drunk driving and as it is, may have suffered injuries they have to carry with them the rest of their lives.
    There’s no doubt this is an unfortunate incident and I wish this woman would get some real help, but having a chief judge who attempts to minimize the first instance of her appearing drunk or drugged on the bench and actually hearing cases in that condition, and now this even more egregious incident where injuries have occurred because of her driving drunk whether she was in rehab for the first reported incident or not, is very serious and disturbing and can’t be described as anything but continuing a trend among Broward Judges that has continued for some time.
    The public has a right to be protected from such people whether they be a Broward Judge or not.
    The fact of the matter is as has been seen repeatedly, attempts to protect a sitting judge by other judges because they feel an arrest on one judge is an attack on all of them is not an appropriate way to deal with a matter that in any way solves the problem and indeed has made it a much more serious problem of epidemic proportions.
    First Imperato and now Pollack once again.
    And we still have a chief judge who apparently thinks it’s better to bury his head in the sand in order to get re-elected by the other judges for another term as chief judge of a circuit that is obviously completely out of control and is being managed in a manner more reminiscent of a kindergarten sandbox game than that of any judicial circuit.
    These judges should not be allowed to sit hearing any cases or deciding anyone’s fate when they obviously have no control over their own lives.
    This puts the public at risk and diminishes the confidence of a public that they can receive any justice whatsoever.
    I am very surprised that any of these judges whether they are transfered to other divisions or not while a case is pending against them are allowed to continued to preside over any case whatsoever. It is simply wrong.
    The Broward County Judiciary needs to clean up its act. And until we can get some new judges that take their responsibilities seriously, those that find themselves in circumstances such as these should not be allowed to sit in judgment of others when it’s obvious that their judgment is in fact impaired for whatever reason.
    It is a total disgrace that things in Broward have reached such a level

    Folks, you are all missing the point. The egregious failure here was not that of the Broward judiciary or that of Pollack herself. It is the demonstrable failure of the JQC and the Supreme Court to get this human missile off the bench and into court-order detox and rehab. My formal complaint to the JQC is the smoking gun that proves the gross negligence of the JQC/Supremes. These clowns have whacked Judge Barry Cohen because he was a faithful whistle-blower, but they couldn’t bring themselves to get this drunk off the bench?

    The regulation of lawyers and judges in this state by the Bar/JQC/Supreme Court cabal is so flawed, so corrupt, so mendacious as to require a federal grand jury looking into it. That is going to happen. If you have your own horror stories, contact me. Jack Thompson, amendmentone@comcast.net

    WEINSTEIN IS GOING TO ASK TO WAIVE THE TWO TERM Chief JUDGE LIMIT INSTALLED BY TOBIN! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? HE HAS NO BSLLS. HE HAS NEVER MADE A COURAGEOUS DECISION ON THE BENCH OR AS AN ADMINISTRATOR. HE IS AN OBESE PUSSY COLLECTING A CHECK FOR WORKING 3 HOURS A DAY. OH, AND THE WICKED WITCH SHARON ZELLER DOES NOT EMERGE FROM THIS POLLACK DISASTER WITHOUT REINFORCING EVERYONE’S COMMON UNDERSTANDING OF HER INCOMPETENCE. WHAT A JOKE! AS USUAL!

    The only difference is that Howard attacks those (see Satz, Marcus, Schreiber) that gave him amazingly generous breaks so that he could work that job as an investigator and eventually get his dance card back again. I think that the normal reaction is to be appreciative. Not in his playbook methinks.

    Is the JQC broken or just what is going on with these errant Broward Judges? Just how many times does it take before they realize these Broward Judges need to be sent a strong message once and for all.
    The injuries sustained by the other drivers puts this in an entirely different light.
    The JQC can no longer sit idyll playing politics and allow these people to run wild when it has escalated to a point where these people can behave in such a deplorable manner where they represent a danger to society.
    When are the powers that be going to wake up and realize what is going on in this circuit and take a leadership role in curbing this outrage.
    We can certainly not expect Chief Judge Weinstein to do anything but what he’s done up till now which is a whole lot of nothing but make excuses for this. She should be remove from office.

    How are judges of all people allowed to get away with this. Imperato now Pollack. Who’s next. There is little oversight by anyone of these lawbreakers. It’s ironic. They r supposed to be enforcing the law. And they continue to sit? That’s the really weird part. And still Weinstein offers nothing but to transfer Imperato to another division. What’s wrong with the Broward judicial picture that this continues and nothing is done about it. Then there r those judges that do little or no work at all. Cush job if u can swing it.

    I mean really a little hard on Judge Pollack aren’t you? Ok, so she is suffering enough apparently and I am sure she did not set out to have her career ruined overnight. I am sure the Chief Judge is doing the best he can with what he has. Who cares how long they work? Don’t you make your own hours, can’t you leave when you want? What the hell does that matter about anything? I think they can do something to enforce some policy for all judicial staff as of course it should be a drug-free work place anyway, and there are plenty of ways to do that, I think they even have a big testing place right across the street. So they should be like Target, Publix, any other entity and when your number is up, you go get tested and of course being on the bench and in that position should have some confines like a pilot but not as stringent but certainly should not be able to fail a breath test on a morning they are running a docket. But let’s think of solutions and try to help the situation instead of just continuing to put another nail in someone’s coffin that has clearly done a good job of doing that herself, so lighten up you are heartless a lot of you and it could be you as well. Drinking legal—driving legal—-maybe you just have been lucky so far but I would be careful who you are trying to take down while the almighty fall harder than most!

    I believe this spate of drunk judges is just an indicator of something much more deep rooted in the Judicial Culture here in Broward County.

    This and other kinds of poor behavior from Ross, Greene, Zack, Levenson, Seidlin, Seidman, Bowman, Diaz, to Gardiner and now Imperato and Pollack bespeaks better than anyone could express a problem that needs to be finally and appropriately dealt with once and for all by some outside agency that will investigate and root out the base causes of such behavior absent the lack of leadership, for nothing is being done about it on a local level.

    It does no good to cover it up or offer excuses for such behavior.

    It’s a fact that the “Judicial Culture” in Broward has always relied upon a circling the wagons approach and an inappropriate protection of judges who run afoul in the process of conducting their personal and professional lives with little or no action ever taken to correct them or deter other judges from doing the same or even worse. We’ve all witnessed it.

    Isn’t it time the judicial gamesters accept some responsibility for themselves?

    These judges are not outside the law that governs everybody and the penalties should be as harsh as those that [they] impose upon anyone else who does the same things they are doing.

    This double standard should stop and maybe the Judicial Culture of excess and unprofessional behavior will abate.

    I don’t see it changing unless the way it is dealt with changes.

    I’m sure there are some judges that are doing a good job, but the excesses of others sure do nothing to change the very bad reputation in general of Judges in Broward.

    Judges in Broward have always taken more than they ever give and yet tout their public service for which they are being handsomely compensated both in terms of the money they are paid and the benefits they receive by taxpayers of this State.

    I think it’s high time they be held responsible.

    If Weinstein thinks he’s done something to decrease the number of poorly performing judges in Broward, he’s even more delusional than I thought. What is needed is a new chief judge who cares about improving the quality of our judiciary. Almost anything would be an improvement over what’s been seen of late with drunk judges running amok and putting the public at risk. His performance has been a dismal disappointment.

    Most of them behave like arrogant delinquents… but then there is Gardiner who had the temerity to have an affair with her married criminal defense lawyer while she was a sitting circuit court judge and also
    commit perjury in an official proceeding related to a capital case. She has yet to suffer a meaningful
    consequence.

    Subject: Urgent for JQC Member Judge Thomas B. Freeman

    Judge Freeman:

    Your JQC has ignored since December of last year the fact, not the surmise, that Broward Judge Gisele Pollack has been chemically impaired both on the bench and on the roadways.

    Because your JQC has chosen to ignore a sworn JQC complaint in this regard filed five months ago, Judge Pollack was arrested for DUI last week, having caused physical injury to an innocent motorist.

    Get off your indolent butts and do your job in this regard. A federal grand jury will be investigating the JQC’s malfeasance.

    Warmly, Jack Thompson

    Enough already! Why is everyone being so hard on Judge Pollack? She has a problem that she and millions of Americans wrestle with every day. Her life has become difficult..in fact, almost unbearable for her, and she is doing her best to climb out of this hole. Come on people…Giselle Pollack has been a wonderful judge before this: Always professional, always nice to attorneys, just a pleasure to be in her courtroom. Why are we all so quick to lash out at such a nice lady in her darkest hours? Have none of YOU ever had to overcome a problem in your life? Show a little compassion please!

    Dear Immediate Above Weirdo:

    We all get addiction. We also get the fact that most addicts will not do what is necessary to recover.

    That is why we have a JQC and a Supreme Court to remove addicts who are in denial, like Pollack (she’s had about five chances to get this right), to remove her from the bench, order her into a real detox and rehab, and in doing so prevent her from running innocent third parties over, like she did the other night.

    This notion that people get a pass to violate criminal statutes because they are “nice to attorneys” is insane. Hitler was nice to children and dogs. So what? She needs help, and that means she needs tough love before she kills somebody.

    The guy who wrote the immediate above must be an addict.

    For the same reasons they did not immediately remove gardiner–to see how much more havoc and damage she could wreak on the bench as the “judge scorned” before such damage could be prevented and she could have fun, fun, fun ’til someone her judgey-wudgey away. That’s why Mike Shitz supports and has his people collude with them.
