    Why do people post mean spirited insulting comments about someone they don’t know?
    Giselle Pollack is a nice person with a serious drinking problem.
    People, this would be different if it were Judge Aleman or Imperato.

    What a bunch of dirt bags (trying to keep it clean) with your holier than thou attitude posts.

    Giselle has been the only of 3 recent judge incidents to admit guilt. The others 2 were either found guilty OR struck a deal and – but NEITHER admitted to fault and fingered their noses with their black robe fever mentality.

    Hopefully Giselle will get the much needed help she needs for her addictions. And then, hopefully she’ll be able to try and get her life in order again.

    Mirror is right. Imperato, Watson, and Rosenthal failed to accept responsibility for their actions. Ironically, they will probably all keep their jobs. The Supreme Court or The JQC needs to step up instead of business as usual. In the alternative, The Legislature needs to revamp the rules. Judges who thumb their noses at the process need to suffer the same penalty as the one suffering from a disease who asked for help or the entire system becomes suspect and undermined.

    I guess this means she can’t be chief judge now. What a shame. Such promise. And she would have been such an improvement over Weinstein even if she continued to come to work drunk. The Broward Judiciary has its perks!

    Hubris be thy name . She should have resigned a year ago. Now get rid of that embarrassment Imperato so the County can move forward.

    Broker a deal to resign before being canned by the Supreme court is the standard M.O. of these judicial pigs, their unrobed lawyers and their protectors still IN robes, Just like the filthy lying kunt gardiner. the question is what about all those damaged during the time they were still allowed to reign on the bench drunk or just plainly dishonest and the resultant fraudulent action therefrom. This dishonesty casts dispersion and discredit on any result that should make every case re-opened. Until that happens, the cesspool still contaminates and protects the dead bodies it drowns.

    Her past, not matter how bad, is not as bad as Howard. I look forward to a great comeback and hope she runs for PD against Gordon Weeks.

      LOL I don’t see Pollack running against her new/old boss. If Finkelstein is reading this, he should make her sit in that dipshit weed court all day, assuming the new Chief Judge doesn’t dismantle it and do diversion in each County Crim division instead of wasting so many resources and time on non-criminals.

    She did the proper thing by resigning. My heart did break for her when I read about her son. If she stays sober she can find another calling.

    What’s the big deal? Surely demand is huge in the private sector for a self-important massive hypocrite? They will be lining up to pay twice a judicial salary for a sophisticated marijuana court specialist?

    Giselle did the right thing by resigning. Quite frankly Chief Judge Weinstein did absolutely nothing to help Giselle. The man has no ability to lead.
    The sitting criminal judges who insist on setting dockets at times when they are either teaching class or just too lazy to show up at the appropriate time are exhibiting a great deal of hubris. Rumor has it an homicide prosecutor told Judge Haimes part of the reason we are not ready is because I sit around for hours waiting for a case to be called. Court room 7900 (professor first), courtroom 7780(professor first), courtroom 6900 (if you’re a defendant its worth the wait), courtroom 5900 (slow but fair), courtroom 5750 (out of control ineptitude at a glacial pace), courtroom 4900 (probably the biggest ego in a robe in the entire building, loves to start late, loves to pontificate) Now that’s leadership baby.

    More slime to follow.

    Why didn’t the JQC just order Pollack to write a 500 word essay on why she was a bad girl and call it a day?

    It’s not like she nearly killed some guy with a deadly weapon. He was probably faking being knocked unconscious to get on TV.

    Six more years! Six more years!

    IF YOU WANT A JOB DONE WELL DON’T LEAVE IT TO LESSER MAN. BROWARD COUNTY JUDGES ARE AN OUTRIGHT DISGRACE.

    just another drunk broward judge in drug court assigned by an equally incompetent chief judge who’s never had a clue about anything except how to politic his way into a paycheck and keep from doing any work himself and take care of little bubby at the same time. he couldn’t have done any worse if he’d poured the drinks himself for poor pollack

    It’s not a zoo or a circus. People feel good around animals and they find clowns entertaining. The Courthouse affronts to common decency don’t fit into either category.

    I feel empathy for Pollack. She is the only one who took responsibility for her actions, albeit very bad actions. She also did not hide the fact that she had a problem before getting on the bench. Her personal issues became too much to handle without that old crutch. I truly hope she gets the help she needs. Addiction is a disease.

    Where does this leave Imperato? So many drunk or drugged up broward judges driving around. How in the world do they think they have the right to sit on the bench and judge others when they don’t even have the ability to judge when they are screwed up to such an extent that their faculties are blown?

    As long as Pollack doesn’t drive or sit on the bench, I don’t care if she carries a 5th of Jack Daniels around in her purse … She’s never hurt anyone but herself. Imperato is another story hammering everybody who comes before her and ruling for cops anytime she can possibly get away with it. She got just exactly what she deserved. Hypocrite of the highest possible order. And this was her second DUI. And she’s still sitting on the bench! That’s the Broward Judiciary for you.

    Alcohol dramatically increases the chances of cognitive dissonance which is defined as a condition of conflict resulting from inconsistency between one’s beliefs and one’s actions and is applicable entirely when reviewing the behavioral problems exhibited by any number of Broward Judges in recent months.
    This problem has consistently manifested itself because of the lack of oversight of Broward Judges by both Chief Judge Weinstein and the lack of appropriate action by regulatory bodies such as the JQC which is supposed to provide protection to the public.
    This lack of judicial oversight should be reviewed and remedied for it most certainly is not be implemented nor enforced to the extent that it is working. Broward County citizens deserve better from their judges.

    Its really simple, if you think that Broward is so terrible and infected, LEAVE! Lawyers, Judges and everybody with a heartbeat has problems and are not perfect. Stop talking like you are above reproach and so damn perfect you couldn’t make mistakes as well. Not justifying anything that anybody was caught doing, but really annoyed at all these whining, complaining people slinging rocks from glass houses, vilifying someone who clearly has a problem. Nobody wants to have substance abuse problems. So YOU who are anonymously bitching on a blog about ” ALL Broward judges are…” You must be God aka the perfect being, since you can know how bad everybody else is without having your dirty laundry aired out in the blogs.
    Bottom line, people should not be taking joy in someone else’s problems. Today its Judge Pollack, Imperato or whomever, but tomorrow it could be you and it could be alot worse then losing a judgeship.

      The worst has happened… these impaired and biased Judges in Broward have sentenced hundreds sitting in Jail! What would you say to these people and their families? Hoping someone above all the misdeeds can get to the real problem.

      Who are you to judge. Plenty of lawyers got tanked and drove home from Il Giardinos, Timpanos, Maguires, and the current popular places. Don’t throw stones if you are sitting in glass houses.

    Seemingly, almost every judge in broward has real problems, but that doesn’t seem to be the real problem. It’s how they work the system for all they can get and then when “they screw up” they think it should be handled differently like they are above it all.
    Got news for them. They aren’t. They should be treated differently alright. After losing their jobs, they should be required to pay the public back all the money they’ve soaked them out of for doing next to nothing for it but getting drunk and drugged and then crying about how they got caught ! Screw them and the mule they rode in on. That’s if they come to work at all in broward !

      Every judge? Get real. Would hate to have you defend me if you rely on those statistics. I can think of quite a few who have never had a problem with drinking, who work all day long, and some of them handle more than one courtroom ie: mental health court.

      I say the boozed up crown goes to the Judge that ended up with no pants on sleeping in the hotel stairwell at a Judge conference who late blamed it falsely on an unknown African-American male slipping her a mickey.

        A DUI with injuries is worse than making a fool of yourself in a hotel since others got hurt. Only a special class of drunk would drink in the car on the way back from rehab.

    Drunk and drugged up Broward Judges? What’s so surprising about a few boosers in black that couldn’t make it in private practice and have sucked off the public dole their entire careers now falling off the wagon and onto the stage of public attention?
    Just the way the biggest excuse goof of them all pretends like it’s ” No Big Problem” to have Broward Judges sitting in judgment of citizens of Broward while whacked out of their minds after having played Pin the Tail on the Donkey at some local drinking establishment for a considerable part of the evening and then jumping into a car and hitting the road!
    And the excuses keep rolling out of Chief judge Weinstein’s mouth like jellybeans from a barrel while he sets the worst possible example with No Docket Schedule of his own and less and less plausible excuses for Drunk or Drugged Judges, Judges that don’t work, or Judges that spend as little time as possible doing anything but trying to figure out how they can sell the idea to Tallahassee of Broward Courts needing 10 more judges to lessen their overburdened work schedules?
    Yes, this is Broward where the palm greasers truly think that by dabbing on a little more chicken grease they can keep the pole slick enough to avoid detection just long enough to ride it to retirement and then come back as retired judges and milk it some more, and Chief Judges like Weinstein can blunder around looking for crumb trails that might lead to some other opportunity to get the new courthouse named after himself. He’s got plenty of time after all because he does little else.
    No, Broward Judges live up to their exiguous reputations every time. And Weinstein is the biggest goof-off of them all.

    How many Judges get away with flashing the badge? It didn’t work for Imperato but I would guess other DUI Judges get away with it. I believe there could be a serious and widespread substance abuse issue across the Broward judiciary. How else could all the aberrant and off the wall behavior be explained over the years? Judge Weinstein needs to screen every Judge for substance abuse and stress/ mental health concerns toot sweet to avoid more damage to Broward.

    I’ve been following this thread with conflicted thoughts. Hypocrite is bad, no questions asked. But wouldn’t a lawyer want a drug or alcohol abuser deciding the fate of a client in criminal or family? Often, unfortunately, many client problems in both areas stem from drug and alcohol as the impetus. Isn’t a teetotaler worse for defense as the decision maker instead of one that shares similar problems and therefore insights? At the least they would decide less harsher penalties which is the goal of defense is it not? A lot of criticizing here and seemingly misplaced unless it is made by those from a government perspective.

    The judiciary is a microcosm of society &, come on, really, by far most Broward judges are conscientious, fair as they can be (i.e. call them like they see them) & put in a decent work day. Some (more than a few) are sharp & actually do an excellent job, & are a pleasure to appear before (Judge Zeidwig comes to mind RIP). There have always been fringe players (J. Cail Lee, Robert Tyson to name a couple from the old guard). If you want to call individuals out, that is fair, but methinks too many commenters here persist in casting the entire Broward judiciary in one bad light, which I say is not fair – or true.

    What crap! She should not be allowed to “resign” at this stage, but stand and be dismisses and removed. She got her “day in court” and she lost–now she NEEDS to be REMOVED as the punishment orders instead of being allowed to “quit” to avoid her just sentence. Otherwise what she wins is exactly what the Court claims it wants to avoid—undermining public confidence in the judiciary. Just like that scumbucket gardiner got away with it to avoid the true disgrace she invited and brought and soooo much more and worse she had other JQC complaints dismissed about. This pattern is a pitiful as the feces who administer it.

    I see in the paper old booze face (and who knows what else) is back working for Finkelstein. Lucky for her, but was she kind enough to get Finkelstein to hire the JA that got the heave ho?
