          Alan Schneider lost by .92 of a percentage point. It was a very close election. But more than 800. More like 2,103. Schneider ran back then on the theory Judge Kollra was too old. It nearly worked. Then the JQC got ahold of Judge Kollra. And now he’s like 70 or something. People like Kaysia Earley should note all these negatives for him. Judges who can fight back like Judge Hilal are a waste of time and money. There’s people like Judge Kollra who can become beaten easily. If he doesn’t drop out first.

    You forgot De Primo. Everyone is waiting for this narcissistic bitch to get an opponent. Fingers crossed. Maybe Gundy v. De Primo or Kaysia??

        Are you asserting that DePrimo is a bimbo because her face is “easy on the eyes”? She is very intelligent, fair, and neutral… I am trying to figure how your conclusion has been formed. I have been in plenty of courtrooms in which i have received favorable judgments that I knew were improper… and vice versa. I could understand of you made this reference to a different judge…. but not DePrimo.
        Based on my experience with her…. I cannot even imagine this negativity you speak of. Give an example.

        P.S. just because a judge doesn’t rule in your favor…. doesn’t make them a bimbo.

          If you think anything about “Tasha” De Primo is easy on the eyes you need some new contacts bro.

            There are real zero hot women in the courthouse and if you’ve actually ever been with a hot woman, you’d know. But out of all of the barely above- average fake lips and faces in that god forsaken place, she ain’t even close to the top- and I have a slight Asian fetish.

          Deprimo was promoted to Circuit Court, but not sure why? She’s got that stupid look on her face all the time. She lied in her campaign at a debate saying she had landlord-tenant experience to trick voters into thinking she has experience.
          Yes, run against her, but the bitch ain’t up in 2024

          But watch out: she amassed the most $$ in County Court history when she was recently challenged: had $250k in her election account.

          Oh, and she likes to pose w her Jewish distant relative for campaign photos; and she changed her name to ‘Tasha’ for the black mailing thing,

          A bitch, yes. But a formidable bitch

      How is DePrimo a narcissist? She is extremely fair and exercises logic regularly. Most judges rule with their emotions, bias, and “politics”… She does not. She is a very pleasant person… she is far from narcissistic. Did she rule against you? Are you the narcissist?

      1. 5

        2

        Okay, Tasha. Stop blogging about yourself.

        You are racist, which is funny, because you say you are black, Jewish or Asian whenever it is convenient for you.

        No one likes you. Just stop.

    As much as I can’t stand De Primo (among others like Moon), it’s pretty common knowledge that Kaysia is running against Hilal. My bet is it’s a 3-way race and Kaysia comes out on top.

      1. 10

        No, “Tasha” Deprimo is that fake entitled bitch who doesn’t understand the law yet got the job bc of political connections. Sure, that explains how most Broward judges got to be judge, but Tasha is a special sort of wrong.

        You see, anyone who has her name distorted to “Tasha” on a mailing aimed at black voters (when she never went by Tasha. Ever.), is a special kind of racist.

        Tasha is the one judge who feels all ashamed at the judges meeting. And that is a tough bar to meet for Broward judges!

      1000%. Hilal lost all respect from her colleagues after blowing up Judge Rodriguez and his friends have not forgotten- and those same friends may or may not be close with Kaysia. She is a nobody that hides under the radar and is useless too. Not terrible, but useless. You can run, but you can’t hide.

          Thought the Stern Burn would have been in assisted living by now. That pimp takes your money and bets for the other side. Watch your wallet. She’s almost as greasy as that gas bag A-Turd.

          Judy gave her a pass the first time after Hilal played all of the political consultants the first time around trying to make friends with everyone in hopes of not getting an opponent. It worked the first time, but the Stern Burn has not forgotten. Loyalty is everything.

          1. 1

            3

            Judge Hilal is hard working and efficient. Judge Hilal will face any challenge and prevail. Anyone looking for a win ought to look at someone who doesn’t have deep roots and support in the community as does Judge Hilal. There are other Judges that can be beat or forced into retirement due to age. Judge Hilal is the wrong choice for anyone wishing to become a Judge someday.

            1. 4

              0

              Stern Burn’s candidates won every election last go round. Being on her bad side is not smart- playing all sides to try and benefit yourself is just dumb. So transparent.

              What deep roots and support exactly? No one in the ‘community’ even knows who she is. When has she been anywhere that wasn’t required? She does nothing but the absolute bare minimum and does that with mediocrity at best.

          1. 4

            1

            Hilal blew up Rodriguez when she was a prosecutor because she was a little brat that didn’t get her way. She got him JQC’ed and he was moved from criminal…because she is a snotty self-entitled little princess. She needs to be de-throned.

      Damn that’s a judge man the jury pool defendants are probably gunning her the whole time in court.
      When is she gonna do hand stands on the beach in a thong? That would be one hell uva campaign video. Even the defendants and their families would be voting for her.

        Sun Sentinel article on July 8, 2005 says he’s 52.

        So he’s 70.5 now?

        If he runs in ’24, he’s 72.5 if elected to start a term in ’25?

        Is he running?

        If he does, the opponent needs to make it clear he can’t finish his term.

        In addition to the fact he was suspended and fined by the JQC.

    The problem is the gutless Dems. Broward is ruled almost entirely by Republican appointment Judges. Trump Judges appointed by Desantis, Scott. Or appointed by Bush. The gutless Broward Dems support the Republicans when they’re challenged. The Broward Dem Party is in conspiracy with Q Anon type things and Trump to keep the Republican appointed Judges in power. They never support the Dem lawyers who try to get the real Broward Dems represented on the Bench by running against Republican appointment Judges.

        Very strange scenario even for a Broward Judge. There should have been an investigation into this. Certainly doesn’t say anything for Bowman’s judgement to say the least. Doesn’t surprise me that the Scum Sentinel never picked up on this, They’ve provided cover for Broward Judges for years.

    The explanation Gelin posted about being blocked from his marketing scam blog is a total lie. He blocked people who would attack him or his positions. I was blocked within 5 minutes of talking to him about representation and receiving erroneous legal advice. This was after he lied about not having a conflict of interest in going after PD Weeks and APD Bob Bathhouse Wills. Everyone else i checked with still had access. I was at the same time blocked from calling him at the same number I had used. Maybe the Florida Bar caught wind of his misuse of this Blog along with numerous ethical violations. Gelin caused his Website to go down by attempting to block individual wifi access to anyone who doesn’t agree with his childish behavior. The Bar needs to take his license.

      The governor needs to remove Weeks from office and replace him with someone who can do the job in professional manner.

        Ask Bob Wills. He knows. Or ask Gelin who continually posts to his own Website without any disclosure as a way of getting around Bar ethics rules. He also does this to disguise conflicts of interest and revealing client confidences. He should not have a license to practice law.

          Wills and Lincoln??? That’s some scary stuff. Is that the deal ??? Both on public payroll and meeting up on company time at a bathhouse ? Very weird. Nothing surprises me anymore. They say there’s nothing like make-up sex so kiss and makeup chumps but stop washing your dirty laundry in public.

        Good job Gelin. That answers the question and resolves the mystery. Hard to believe Howard would take any action on that but who knows. Case closed.

    Broward is and has always been a Judicial Twilight Zone of misfits and losers who couldn’t make it in private practice.
    More than three quarters of this list of judges need to get the boot by voters, but its like a crapshoot with these loafers playing the odds with Broward Citizens being the real losers.

    There are any number of judges that need to hit the road before they start hanging their hands out for contributions. I’d say at least half of those listed if not more. These career clowns need to remember what its like to have to go to work.

    What is up with Lee’s JA, Jose? I hear he was in Court the other day warning if Chis Nelson ( they guy who called out kids at drag shows) showed up to the Court House he won’t get away with the crap he pulls at the School Board.

    See here, I have enough of these groomer judges and their henchmen.

    Please Chris come root out the groomers and other bad actors like Judge Lee, Judge Bowman and Lee’s JA Jose, from the court system.

      Groomer judges like Bowman, Lee, Tutor, and Benson better hope Chris Nelson doesn’t start looking at the courthouse like he did at the School board and drag shows.

      Seriously, we know Bowman in true groomer fashion, literally manipulated the juvi court system to take a boy home and allegedly made him his sexual plaything. Rumor has it that Judge Lee and Tutor have been covering up this and more instances of groomers (especially in staff attorneys, interns and ja’s) for years. Are we sure this is the only instance of this going on? We have to protect our kids and an audit of all judges presiding over juvi and dependency cases is need to confirm and root out the groomers amongst us.

          Bowman didnt adopt a kid out of juvi court?, Same kid who’s case he presided over? Later the Judge was alleged to have sexually abused the kid while living in his home and it went away? Tutor and Lee looked away because they are on the groomer team.

          Also not a coincidence that these same gay groomer judges ran off a conservative Christian Judge Contini. Was Contini was targeted because he called bs on the gay groomer judges, tutor and lee tokm him out?

        2. 1

          What ? That Bowman adopts this minor boy after he’s appeared before him in his courtroom and then the real problems start ? Very strange to say the least.

            1. 9

              0

              What is sad is that Sun Sent and the rest of the media have never banged the drum to get Bowman an opponent after this came out.

              This Bowman case is the textbook case of grooming.

              He was the judge over the kid’s case
              he bought the kid sneakers and other gifts
              adopted the kid
              bowman married the Att Gen who was representing the kid before him
              moved the kid into his home
              When he turned 18, he kicked him to the curb and tried to jam the kid with criminal charges.

              Is this only the tip of the iceberg?

        About time this is getting coverage…

        Yes, it is unfortunate that blacks go to prison at high rates, but that doesn’t mean those issues should override the need to expose the gay groomers corrupting our courts as well.

        Save us Chris Nelson

        You obviously have never had anything scheduled with her. No. She’s as stupid as they come even for Broward Judges. Glad she’s hit the road now that she’s milked it for all its worth.
