Brenda’s quest to sit on the Florida Bar’s Board of Governors has failed. Unbeknownst to us, she had applied to be a lawyer overseer on January 4th, after falsely complaining to the Bar about JAABLOG’s supposedly aggressive behavior, which was also claimed in her now discredited lawsuit.
Jack Thompson, one time blog foe and now friend, sent over the Dear Brenda letter pictured above, and we followed up today with the Bar’s PIO, who provided Forman’s redacted application, found here. The Bar could not recall a Constitutional Officer ever applying for the Board of Governors over the last twelve years or so, but a thorough records check was not requested, and has not been done at this time.
As far as Brenda’s motives in wanting to participate in formulating and adopting matters of policy concerning the activities of the Bar, the application doesn’t mention whether or not JAABLOG played a role. In any event, her written statement regarding “how important it is to stay on the honest and right side of the law” is welcome, given the mixed messages previously offered by Mark Speiser in her guardianship debacle, and her affidavits and assertions now wholly contradicted by video in Brenda v. Blog …
The above photograph of shackled juveniles being led to court in the North Wing of the central courthouse was not taken years ago, when people like Vic Tobin and Peter Weinstein were campaigning hard for a new courthouse tower. It was, in fact, taken this morning, and is representative of the still daily medieval display that the now built, expensive new courthouse was supposed to eliminate.
Given Jack Tuter’s recent plea in the DBR to “encourage anyone involved in the court system to give us input on changes we can make to be more efficient,” the following email was sent this afternoon to the chief judge:
” … I am requesting a meeting to give input on how we can address the shameful practice of parading shackled juveniles in the public hallways of the North Wing.”
Of course, since Tuter has blocked JAABLOG from sending emails directly to all judges after some embarrassing word snafus, the message bounced back, which is why it’s being posted here …
JQC v. KOLLRA – here is the Sun Sentinel on the most recent example of a Broward judge stepping in it. It’s the “Is the rumored impending JQC action merely a campaign violation case?” that we mentioned back on December 5th. And as far as Dennis Bailey’s proposed JQC settlement, there’s still no direction from the Supreme Court …
SS: Path to court for shackled Broward juveniles is shameful spectacle (2010):
” … When Broward County builds a new courthouse, the problem will be solved, (Tobin) said, because separate, private pathways for juveniles will be designed and built into it … “

I GOTTA GET SOME MORE JUICE BEFORE I HAVE TO RUN AGAIN
The application is a hoot.
She’s a total embarrassment.
By “embarrassing word snafu” you mean when Diaz was caught not being very honest about some hearing in front of him?
You go, girl ! I got your back …
Lol ! Why would they want a fruitcake like Brenda Forman ? This weirdo has shown she’s unfit to hold any public office. Now she wants to sit on the Florida Bar’s of Governors ?
Get her a mop and bucket LOL
Um, what happens if the Child handuffed to the crutch falls and it spears him instead of falling off to the side?
It saves the trouble of beating him later?
CRAZY IN ALABAMA
I see that Brenda has seven court cases which were not disclosed in her response to question 21 of the application. And she swore to the truthfulness of the application “under penalty of perjury.”
Oooh tell Satzie 😂
Application says she worked for SAO so there it is, nada.
7 in Broward???? Home terf action
She undoubtedly had help filling out the application
By a drunken parrot?
IM HERE TO HELP
ITS ALL MY FAULT
FOR THE GOOD OLE DAYS
PORK BELLIES AND TATOR TOTS
Ive got better things to do than run an efficient clerks office
I think my underwear and toothbrush is in one of these boxes but she won’t tell me where
Howard was a big enough joke as Clerk of Courts in this political cesspool, but Brenda is some hokey from Penokey without a clue what she’s doing. I’ve worked in four different circuits, but Broward has got to be the most poorly run because of the level of incompetence of its elected idiots. That goes for our judges too.
Loffrerdo, who else.
FORMAN IS ONE BIG REJECT
Clerk Forman is the sticker to my peel
I’m not surprised. They would have said anything to get a new building.
I USED TO FLUSH WHOLE TOILET PAPER ROLLS DOWN THE TOILET TO CAUSE FLOODS IN THE OLD COURTHOUSE
ANYTHNG TO BUILD A NEW COURTHOUSE SO I COULD HONOR MYSELF EVEN THOUGH A NEW COURTHOUSE HAD BEEN REJECTED TWICE BY PUBLUC REFERENDUM
AND THEY DIDNT EVEN NAME IT AFTER ME
AND TO TOP OFF MY ESTEEMED CAREER OF PERPETUAL TROUGH SUCKING THEY DONT WANT ME AS MAYOR OF CORAL SPRINGS EITHER
THAT WILL BE TWO BOXES OF JELLY DOUGHNUTS
Only 12 credits to go
She quit in 2009?
Who’s up for bowling tonight
The more I learn about the Clerk the more I want to give Howard Forman a smack for foisting her on the County.
I can’t believe they rejected my app. I’m as qualified to be on the Bar’s Board of Governers as I am to be Clerk of Courts …
I’m qualified. The rehab doctor even said I was certifiable.
Vote RICHARD BRIAN KAPLAN. Insane people need representation too!
I know my qualification being the Clerk should had a lot of value on being a voice for the voiceless.
Brenda needs a better proofer. That application almost makes her look illiterate. Oh, wait.
U GOT DONGED, BREN
WHO U LISTENING TO GIRL
The funny thing is she looks downright qualified compared to some of the Judges.
No education, no experience and no know how. Any wonder the clerks offices is a catastrophic mess ? Its a no brainer. Even a moron can figure it out. We’ve got a moron at the helm.
I’m filing a Domestic Violence charge
I have good reason to be in fear for my life around here
Looks like another one of Bobbie’s little schemes has failed. Can’t figure which one is the dumbest, Lit’l Bobbie or Brenda.
Lit’l Bobbie should stick to Tacos and leave the big decisions to the Big Pops.
I was robbed by the establishment.
After I paid all that money to Holness… robbed by a cheating judge. There is no justice.
I can play hardball. Loser.
Its not like he’s the first Broward judge to play dirty politics and then hope to weather the storm afterwards. As long as they get away with it in the end, nothing changes around here. We continue to have the most poorly performing judges in the state in Broward with a clown of a Chief Judge who makes lame excuses for the lack of quality judges on the bench.
IT WAS WORTH A ROLL OF THE DICE
BROWARD JUDGES GAMBLE ON IT
ITS WORTH THE RISK
Is that Katelyn Jenner?
Not dirty politics. When you are out there campaigning for judge it’s not uncommon for everyone to step in and point out slight missteps to each other. These weren’t exactly slight but weren’t the end of the world in my opinion. There are many states where the judicial races are partisan races.
The JQC complaints on Jackie Powell and Stefanie Moon will expose some really shady campaigning.
Garbage in – Garbage out
Typical Broward Judge stuff
I hesitated to comment but the reports I have seen on Broward Beat and Sun Sentinel have not been great. If true, they would likely require a more thoughtful analysis by the JQC then the no brainer violations of Judge Kolra.
There may have been more than one reason Jackie didn’t want to have to testify on behalf of Brenda Forman before Brenda decided to drop the ball on Forman vs. Blog.
Sounds like we may have a couple of more newbie punk broward judges lookin for cover.
Beef jerky may not be off the menu.
DONT MISS A THING EXCEPT THE PAY AND PERKS
And everyone having to be nice and respectful just because they conned a bunch of drooling Alzheimer’s patients at Phase 7 Condo Village to vote for them with Dunkin Donuts and a pat on the head.
While the successful lawyers are working the no business losers are spending the day greasing the Governor’s men or the droolers. What else would they have to do.
Ken Hasset has it!
Umm umm good. Enchiladas are my favorite when I’m finished hearing traffic tickets. Bring your drivers license with you.
IF ONLY HE WAS AS GOOD A JUDGE
Dude, you have been posting this picture for years. No one cares. Please stop. You are boring.
Someone is upset that this fat picture is online.
Just my opinion, but I surmise that the Bar doesnt want anything to do with Brenda Forman with her past bogus suits concerning her former husband Howard Forman, although she did not list them on her application.
Judge Speiser found her to have filed her suit to grab her former husband’s financial assets to be in Bad Faith. She’s obviously getting some input from Diaz. He’s failed in the past to assert influence with the Bar, but still trying to get someone on the inside if I had to guess.
He’s never stopped playing tinker bell since he was suspended from the bench, fined fifteen grand as a Broward judge and required to write letters of apology to Former Judge Seidman and the Hispanic Bar Association for his debut with the Judicial Qualifications Committee Discipline Actions some years ago.
Some old dogs don’t know when to lay down. He’s one of them.
The sooner this old dog retires from the bench, the better for the citizens of Broward.
I can make a hat, or a broach, or a teradactyl!
7 ON THE BIMBO SCALE
Here’s a map to the bar for those of you that cant read
Thanks for the ride, Bren.
Looking ahead to 2020 and a new clerk
Any improvement would be better than the mess you’ve made of it
I just finished a grueling day at Union Institute and University. I registered this morning after finding out about it here. 8 hours later and I have a Phd! I’m going to get another one tomorrow!
I got my PsyD in four hours. See you at Conte.
Union makes Nova look like Harvard
Bottom drawer law school
More of a mill really
He’s wearing his robe in his faculty profile picture?
Adjunct. Big difference.
Union makes Nova look like Harvard.
Thomas Cooley Law School makes Union look like Oxford.
Only the most successful lawyers can claim to be a Cooley grad.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
YOUVE LEFT A LONG TRAIL OF STUNTS BREN
YOU MUST BE SETTING A RECORD
as a Broward judge you have certain privileges that come without consequences
I changed my look but I’m still recognized
and Tooty didn’t get the last laugh. I did.
I left that zoo they call the broward judiciary
Just a word of advice. Anybody could do a better job as clerk of courts, but Dian wants the job…
BIMBOS ARE SO PREDICTABLE
Prosecutors Pound the Poor and Placate the Rich!!!!
IF ITS NOT HE FLAG THEY HIDE BEHIND
ITS ASSOCIATION WITH RELIGIOUS DOGMA
ITS MORE OBVIOUS WITH THESE TWO OLD CLOWNS EVERY DAY
Do any criminal defense attorneys even provide competent representation to their clients these days, or are they too busy ogling and googling at the young tits and ass Mike Satz hires to bounce and flounce around the courtroom? (Hmm…and you all wonder why there’s a bunch of young women in the homicide unit).
Mike Satz: Genius with a Penis*
*Shout out to Prosecutor Hanowitz for not only authoring a children’s book on sexual abuse with an extremely confusing title, but also avoiding prosecution AND keeping her job after committing a crime for which most African American youth are liberally doled out prison time. What a bunch of winners. Good thing we have Brenda Forman as a voice of reason.
Broward County corrupt? Time for a clean sweep.
Everybody get ready for the sequel to “Genius with a Penis”—- “Pardon my Hard-On”
AN OFFICE FULL OF SOCIAL WORKERS NOW PROVIDES A BACK RUB FOR ALL OUR CLIENTS
THEN WE PROCESS THEM
ITS CALLED EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL AND QUICK RESOLUTION
ITS ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS
QUALITY OF REPRESENTATION ? LOL
We make it easy …
Brenda Forman doesn’t get tossed another bone … lol
They’ve caught onto her hype and ain’t buying, unlike voters when she ran using her married name of Forman before the divorce and after she tried to grab her hubby’s assets.
Prediction: She loses the big bone in 2020.
I PROMISE TO SLEEPWALK MY WAY THRU MY TENURE AS JUDGE IN BROWARD FOR AS LONG AS IT LASTS
Does the oath count if one is sleep oath taking? That could have been a good defense to the Jqc. She should get a do over.
Why vote for an old political dinosaur when you can vote for an old political dinosaur’s wife
I’m sorry but I was suddenly so thirsty
This reminds me I need to tell my JA to cancel my manicure appointment for this afternoon
I don’t care how many times you offer me a urine test you have never offered me a urine test and this is not being recorded and we’re not in a smelly tiled covered room
I know they told us at Judicial College to always smile broadly for our mug shots but this is the best I can do because of the pills
And then the GPS said to turn into the liquor store on the route back from Rehab
If it hadn’t been for that bad driver I ran into and the bottle of booze in my front seat, as a Broward Judge I would have gotten away with it. But I prefer working as a Public Defender now protecting citizens from those bad cops we have here anyway. The only bad part is I’m under the Fink’s thumb.
THE CRYING ACT DIDNT WORK FOR ME EITHER
BROWARD JUDGES – A BREED ALL THEIR OWN
AND AFTER I SPIKED THE ENTIRE PANEL WITH MY SPECIAL MIX OF SPANISH FLY
Take my advice and stay away from Palm Beach they don’t understand the Broward ways
Why there’s no more 17th Circuit Christmas Party
We’re the cream of the Democratic Party. Even when we win elections we’re too stupid to keep the job
BROWARD DEMOS ARE THE PARTY YOU CAN COUNT ON
LOOK AT ALL THE GREAT JUDGES WE’VE GOT SUCKING SWILL AT THE PUBLIC TROUGH
I have a Broward Attorney but what I really need is a Broward Judge so the case will get screwed up and I definitely walk
Being in a Broward courtroom makes everything going on in the White House seem normal
Beingg in a Broward courtroom makes everything going on in the White House seem normal
It’s ok to take my picture here but don’t follow me when I take my lunchtime walk
BIG DEAL…. SO THEY CAUGHT ME SMOKING A JOINT 30 FEET FROM AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN HOLLYWOOD
I PUT PEOPLE AWAY FOR ALOT LESS
THTA’S NOTHIN COMPARED TO OTHER BROWARD JUDGES
Honest to goodness Your Honor I didn’t see where Resiles went
Take this mosquito net off my head and you won’t to waste a DNA swab
WHIMPING OUT IS MY FORTE AFTER IVE MADE AN AZZ OF MYSELF
CALL ME MADAM CLERK
LOOKS LIKE IM GONNA HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOME ANSWERS
AND I DONT MEAN MY RECIPE FOR BEEF JERKY
HEY, BREN. EVERYBODY’S LOOKING FOR YOU IN THE CLERK’S OFFICE
The pay stinks but the Happy Hours start early and often
It was simply a case of running out of fingers
The fajitas come with guacamole so we’re good there
DUMB AND DUMBER
GOT ANY ALCOHOL IN THE BACK
This badge gets me out of everything unless I’m stupid enough to try it across the County line
Eureka! I think I’ve finally deciphered who sent the anonymous threat to Judge Seidman
….. keep it together …. keep calm …… they have no idea I don’t have a clue what they’re talking about …. oh dear ….. did I say that out loud?
Then we’ll just have to take our shoes and socks off and use our toes
I couldn’t believe my luck there was also 3/4 of a pizza still in the box in that dumpster
Doody called. Somebody had to spill the beans on Uncle Larry. Those exrays were going to be worth some dosh one day. But to wind up in his condo dumpster ? Lol
Broward judges got to have some downtime.
I could barely write an Order but somehow I wrote a book
If only Seidlin had known me before I departed this world. Of course he would have had to have had a lot of spending loot. More than a former NY cab driver turned broward county judge makes.
And what he did to that old woman in his condo ! Naughty Larry.
OLE ONE EYE DID THE TRICK
Ask about pissy Lenny Feiner who didn’t like his pens and telephone being moved. What a whiney little piss ant.
The Winner !
LENNY JUST AINT GOT NO STYLE
I’m practicing Public Reprimand faces. How’s this one look?
Bailey is about as big a bombastic twit as they come. Couldn’t make it in private practice with his equally as stupid sidekick Toady Loe. Does he really think anybody falls for his all too serious facial expressions? Ive seen better interpretations of a phoney baloney politician on Saturday Night Live.
So now he’s getting kicked in the teeth by way of a public reprimand? They wont fall for his overly pedantic demeanor either.
Why do they always aspire to the bench, besides the money and financial security? Good enough reasons for a loser at anything else.
Look closer it says right here Absentee Ballot 2012. Why else would Obama be on it?
Does this mean I have to give back my Obama phone ?
I FEEL FOR YA BRO
WE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABE TO MAKE IT IN PRIVATE PRACTICE BUT THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS MAKE ROOM AT THE PUBLIC TROUGH AGAIN FOR EACH OTHER
We don’t care about some stupid videos. It happened the way we said it did and that’s it
Dugh ? Making excuses for the erratic behavior of Broward Judges is my job. Some are a little more difficult to sell than others, but who said being Chief Judge of a circuit like this one was going to be easy. I just block the email addresses of anyone with suggestions that may lead to some sort of answers.
PASS THE PLATE TUTER
If I told you about what’s been going on here for the last 40 years it would melt your ears
THE PETTY EGOS OF LESSER MEN
THE BROWARD JUDICIARY ON A DAY WHEN THEY SHOW TO WORK
Can anybody tell me why Judge Henning would decline a case in complex civil and THEN after declining the case, without any jurisdiction over the case, sua sponte order my client, a Haitian American youth, to be transferred to state prison (while his civil case is pending and ready for trial)-making it next to impossible to provide effective assistance of counsel and violating my Haitian American youth client his numerous other cherished constitutional rights.
Sounds like good ole fashioned Briward County racism.
It’s generational racism. People from older generations get uncomfortable with treating people of color with the same rights as Caucasians.
Broward County Corrupt? Time for a clean sweep.
WHAT U SAY ? BROWARD COUNTY JUDGES GOT HUBBY AND WIFE TEAMS MILKING IT FOR ALL ITS WORTH
NOT THE SMARTEST – BUT WE WORK AS A TEAM
White defendants vs. black plaintiff. Clearly Judge Henning ordered according to her upbringing and experience. Many psychologists would argue that this is completely normal behavior that she would rule based on her experience and interactions in life.
Judge Henning-too old to appreciate that blacks are no longer considered slaves. Somebody needs to remind her that it was a long time ago that it was established that whites, blacks, and causasions are all equal.
Hmmm..apparently mother hen ain’t so much of a mother hen as she is a racist hen. Jesus Christ, Henning get with the times. Good lord we ain’t in the time of slavery.
Judge Henning you old, but jesus, one would think you would at least be equal in your rulings.
“Prejudices are what fools use for reason”
Get in the booths. Get Judge Henning out of there.
RIGHT THIS WAY
YOUR LUNCH IS ON US
It may as well be the 1950s in southern Alabama.
Go Ruby go
Ruby can still run in Nigeria.
While Gordon Weeks discusses the real issues affecting society…
She called the police 20 minutes later to let them know Gordon was riding a bike without a light
THEY DONT CALL HIM WORTHLESS WEEKES FOR NOTHING
HOWIE’S LITTLE BOY DEFINES EVERYTHING THATS BECOME WRONG WITH THE PUBLIC DEFENDER’S OFFICE
I gotta agree. Weeks is a putz who runs from any work.
Gawd. Why? Why get rid of the braids. Whyyyyyyyyyyy?
Who is Bacdl supporting for PDO?
As if voters care who bacdl is backing. They’re as worthless as Weekes and stand for about as much.
Bigoted Asshole Coward “Defense” Lawyers
THINKING IS DIFFICULT
THATS WHY MOST PEOPLE JUDGE
We’ve got some of the same type of bimbos on the Broward Bench …
AOC is nothing more than a distraction entertained by voters in our country that would rather live in la la land than pay attention to the real issues. Just like Trump with his obsession of immigration laws and the “wall”.
JUST KEEPING TABS
Squeaky Frome’s dancing days aren’t lookin so good these days now that the art form has changed …
WE WERE HAPPY TO BE THE SUBJECT OF YOUR IRE BIMBO
