      Uh oh! This opinion spells bad news for Maria-Mariya.

      Jason used the same name, just with a – hyphen, the Court held.

      But Maria went so far as to change her name entirely to one that she has NEVER used before.

    We call BS. It’s his middle name, it’s not another form of his last name. This will open the flood gates. Everyone will use their middle name or mother’s maiden name or their childhood nickname hypenated to move them up on the ballot.

            JUDGE (?) “CORRUPT” CLAUDIA ROBINSON

            FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Broward County Judge Claudia Robinson submitted her resignation Thursday.

            Robinson is under investigation by the Judicial Qualifications Commission, after a Local 10 News investigation showed that she showered Michael Ahearn, her former 2014 campaign manager, with lucrative appointments from the bench.
            More Bob Norman Headlines

            Broward County judge: ‘Closer to my house, the higher the bond’

            Robinson conceded the charges in November and agreed to a suspension in December.

            Chief Judge Jack Tuter announced Robinson’s Feb. 12 resignation date.

            Local 10 News investigative reporter Bob Norman tried to speak with Robinson at her home Friday, but when she came to the window, she was in no mood to talk.

            “I’m going to call the police,” Robinson told Norman.

            Norman discovered that Robinson showered Ahearn with more than 80 percent of her lucrative mediation appointments — worth about $45,000 to his law practice.

            The JQC investigated and found that she “failed to uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary” and recommended a 30-day suspension.

            When Norman went to ask Robinson about that last month, he discovered that she canceled court for the day, with an aide claiming she was stuck at the doctor’s office.

            The JQC reopened its investigation after that story aired, saying new information had come to light, which ultimately led to Thursday’s resignation.

            The resignation takes effect Feb. 12, but Robinson is now on a leave of absence and is not expected to return to her courtroom again.

    While it’s true Judge Lee is smart and hard working, it’s also undisputed he can be rude and disrespectful to lawyers. Don’t believe me? Just watch him in trial. He won’t let lawyers make a record, he tells lawyers to sit down in the middle of make a point or making a motion and he does not care the client is watching.

      Smart people treat others with respect and let others do their jobs. Smart people are accommodating when sitting in positions of power. Smart people don’t blame others for their shortcomings. Smart people are thankful for gifts bestowed upon them by people like a Governor of Florida. Smart people aren’t dependent on the State for a paycheck. Compared to others in a robe he may be smart but he should try being a good Judge on the bench instead of rushing everything like his time is more valuable than those he serves so he can get back to his extracurricular activities.

    Read below, what a fake…easy to apologize when you get opposition and sitting before the Editorial Board. Try to lay blame on ill prepared lawyers and testy Defendants. Don’t see Mollica and Hurley back in the day have these issues of taking the stress of the day out on Defendants and lawyers. Hinting the context of the situation caused the problem, not him. Go cry some more about your grand pappy

    “Davis does not appear to love all parts of the job, however. In the early days of his tenure, he presided over first-appearance court, a chaotic gathering filled with often ill-prepared attorneys and testy defendants. On at least three occasions, Davis expressed his displeasure with the people appearing before him.

    “I was unkind,” a chastened Davis said during his endorsement interview. “The context of those situations is not important. The fact is that I was not nice.”

Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, where she earned a place on the Law Journal and from the University of Miami Masters of Law program in 1989. She subsequently studied broadcast journalism at Columbia University and earned a masters degree in psychology from Nova Southeastern University.

      While in law school, Olefson interned at the Broward County Public Defenders office and worked for a New Your City based law firm on a significant international intellectual property litigation matter, before opening a general private practice, including probate, real estate, and business transactions and litigation, in South Florida. After several years working with the First American Title Insurance company, the national underwriter and Fortune 300 firm, asked to head a regional South Florida joint venture. While writing her first book, which she dedicated to her grandparents, Olefson became a sought after subject matter expert on the real estate crises for major national television networks including CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News, CBS, PBS, CSPANN, Bloomberg, and a speaker at significant industry conferences. She was subsequently pursued by large law firms seeking to grow their commercial foreclosure and work out departments, and earned a quality reputation as a commercial troubled asset work out and foreclosure attorney representing financial institutions.

Her recent book ‘101 Ways to Stay Out of Court: Navigating Life’s Little Legal Landmines’ is based on viewer questions received during this time period.

      Olefson has continued to serve as a Mediation, but left the traditional practice of law in 2012 to serve as Director of a non-partisan The Carnegie Group think tank, with expertise in the legal, real estate, finance, and healthcare industries, serving financial institution clients, as well as trade associations, for profit and non-profit, publicly traded and private companies, and government organisations. When her children left home for college, Olefson continued her own education and life-long interest in brain health and neurology, returning to college to earn a graduate degree in psychology. She is an avid supporter of brain health research, education, and awareness as well as women’s hearth health.

          JUDGE MIKE USAN IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED
          HIS FREE RIDE IS OVER

          Cynthia Franke, Tyrone Javellana, South Florida couple, convicted of exploiting a 94-year-old woman

          FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A South Florida couple has been convicted of exploiting a 94-year-old woman with dementia who prosecutors say disinherited her family and handed over her $10 million estate.

          The Miami Herald reports Cynthia Franke and her husband, Tyrone Javellana, each face up to 30 years in prison. A jury on Tuesday found each of them guilty of one count of financial exploitation of an elderly person, which is a first-degree felony.

          Franke and Javellana are from Hollywood. They work as a stockbroker and a financial planner.

          Sentencing is set for April 19.

          The Herald reports experts testified that Franke took the woman to her attorney in 2009 to change her will.

          Her husband also faces an additional charge of exploiting the woman’s now-deceased sister.

          “Elderly abuse is a serious problem in this community and it will become even more serious as the population ages,” Richard Sherman, a prosecutor in the State Attorney’s Office Elderly Exploitation Unit wrote in a statement to the Miami Herald. “We will continue to aggressively prosecute elderly exploitation in our community to protect our seniors.”

    Children cry out for “Mama” and “Papi” in heartbreaking audio recorded at a detention center
    ProPublica published audio of children at a US Customs and Border Protection facility who have been separated from their parents.

    The audio was provided by Human Rights attorney Jennifer Harbury, who told CNN that a client was at the facility last week where children had been recently separated from their parents.

    In the audio you can hear children crying and asking for “Papi” and “Mama.” One child can be heard begging for someone to call her aunt, saying she even has the phone number memorized.

    Purdue Pharma left almost nothing to chance in its whirlwind marketing of its new painkiller OxyContin.

    From 1996 to 2002, Purdue pursued nearly every avenue in the drug supply and prescription sales chain — a strategy now cast as reckless and illegal in more than 1,500 federal civil lawsuits from communities in Florida to Wisconsin to California that allege the drug has fueled a national epidemic of addiction.

    Kaiser Health News is releasing years of Purdue’s internal budget documents and other records to offer readers a chance to evaluate how the privately held Connecticut company spent hundreds of millions of dollars to launch and promote the drug, a trove of information made publicly available here for the first time.

    All of these internal Purdue records were obtained from a Florida attorney general’s office investigation of Purdue’s sales efforts that ended late in 2002.

    I have had copies of those records in my basement for years. I was a reporter at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, which, along with the Orlando Sentinel, won a court battle to force the attorney general to release the company files in 2003. At the time, the Sun-Sentinel was writing extensively about a growing tide of deaths from prescription drugs such as OxyContin.

    We drew on the marketing files to write two articles, including one that exposed possible deceptive marketing of the drug. Now, given the disastrous arc of prescription drug abuse over the past decade and the stream of suits being filed — more than a dozen on some days — it seemed time for me to share these seminal documents that reveal the breadth and detail of Purdue’s efforts.

    INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER FRED SCHULTE

    Asked by Kaiser Health News for comment on the OxyContin marketing files and the suits against the company, Purdue Pharma spokesman Robert Josephson issued a statement that reads in part:

    “Suggesting activities that last occurred more than 16 years ago, for which the company accepted responsibility, helped contribute to today’s complex and multi-faceted opioid crisis is deeply flawed. The bulk of opioid prescriptions are not, and have never been, for OxyContin, which represents less than 2% of current opioid prescriptions.”

    The marketing files show that about 75 percent of more than $400 million in promotional spending occurred after the start of 2000, the year Purdue officials told Congress they learned of growing OxyContin abuse and drug-related deaths from media reports and regulators. These internal Purdue marketing records show the drugmaker financed activities across nearly every quarter of medicine, from awarding grants to health care groups that set standards for opioid use to reminding reluctant pharmacists how they could profit from stocking OxyContin pills on their shelves.

    Purdue bought more than $18 million worth of advertising in major medical journals that cheerily touted OxyContin. Some of the ads, federal officials said in 2003, “grossly overstated” the drug’s safety.

    The Purdue records show that the company poured more than $8 million into a website and venture called “Partners Against Pain,” which helped connect patients to doctors willing to treat their pain, presumably with OxyContin or other opioids.

    It made and distributed 14,000 copies of a video that claimed opioids caused addiction in fewer than 1 percent of patients, a claim Food and Drug Administration officials later said “has not been substantiated.”

    Purdue hoped to grow into one of the nation’s top 10 drug companies, both in sales and “image or professional standing,” according to the documents; OxyContin was the means to that end.

    Purdue first marketed the drug for cancer pain but planned to expand that use to meet its multimillion-dollar sales goals. In 1998, the market for treating cancer with opioids stood at $261 million, compared with $1.3 billion for treating other types of pain, the Purdue reports note.

    Purdue’s OxyContin sales objectives were clearly stated in the earliest marketing plan in the records, for 1996. It sought $25 million in sales and to generate 205,000 prescriptions. By the next year, its goals had tripled: $77.9 million in sales and to generate 600,000 prescriptions.

    Florida’s Prison Population Rose by 14 Percent From 2000 to 2015 Despite Reforms.

    Since 2000, Florida has cut its jail admissions rates, pretrial detention populations, and prison admission rates by a huge margin. The state’s urban communities have slightly decreased their arrest and imprisonment rates and slowly (very slowly) tried to become less arrest-happy.

    Yet, according to a new report from the Vera Institute of Justice, the state’s total prison population increased from the years 2000 to 2015 thanks in part to a surge in long prison sentences. The Vera Institute’s data set aims to show that even though many states are trying to scale back their massive antidrug task forces, other issues have slowed the nation’s move to imprison fewer people.

    e Vera report also chides Florida for what it calls “uneven” reform goals. Despite the fact that most Democrats and Republicans statewide agree that the War on Drugs should be scaled back and the jail population should shrink, Vera noted the state last year passed a new set of draconian punishments that will almost certainly put more opioid users in prison for longer periods. The study notes this change conflicts with city-level initiatives, including the Criminal Mental Health project, which helps keep Miami-Dade residents with serious mental illnesses out of prison.

    “Elsewhere, statewide measures are out of step with county-level efforts to reduce incarceration’s footprint. In 2017, the Florida legislature passed HB 477, establishing new mandatory minimum sentences for the possession of fentanyl and its derivatives,” the report reads. “Meanwhile, Miami-Dade County’s Criminal Mental Health Project continues to serve as a national model for pre- and post-booking diversion of people with serious mental illnesses (SMI) or co-occurring SMI and substance use disorders into community-based treatment and support services.”

    Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has been granted a temporary restraining order against a man claiming to be his caregiver.

    The order was issued Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by CNN.
    A petition filed in support of the order states that Keya Morgan, a memorabilia collector who has been acting as Lee’s “caretaker,” was taking advantage of Lee ever since his wife, Joan Lee, died last year.
    “Petitioner, along with law enforcement and Adult Protective Services, believes that Mr. Morgan is unduly influencing Mr. Lee and isolating him,” the petition filed by Lee’s former attorney, Tom Lallas, states.
    The temporary order bans Morgan from abusing, harassing or contacting Lee and requires him to stay at least 100 yards away from him.
    CNN has reached out to Morgan for comment. In a statement to TMZ, Morgan denied the allegations against him.
    “I have taken great care of Stan Lee for the past many years, and have never had a problem directly with Stan. I have a fantastic relationship with him for the past many years as he has stated countless times on the record and I literally saved his life once,”

    No matter where you go, it seems there’s always a Walgreens or a CVS just around the corner.

    The two drugstores carry everything from groceries and cosmetics to household supplies and greeting cards. Both stores have pharmacies that offer services like flu shots, and both have rewards cards that offer serious savings.

    The CVS ExtraCare program offers shoppers perks like members-only pricing and 2% back in ExtraBucks Rewards points, which add up to additional perks and discounts, each time you shop. Walgreens’ Balance Rewards program allows shoppers to earn points for every dollar spent, which can add up to discounts on future purchases. At both stores, almost every product has a rewards-member-only lower price.

    Both Walgreens and CVS operate between 8,000 and 10,000 stores in the United States.

    But the two stores’ atmospheres couldn’t be more different. When we visited a Walgreens store in Westchester, New York, it was bright, clean, and well-organized. Upbeat music was playing, and there were plenty of people shopping around.

    Dunkin’ Donuts Sign Asks Customers To Snitch On Workers Not Speaking English

    A Dunkin’ Donuts corporate spokeswoman confirmed that the sign had been posted by the location’s general manager “based on her own personal judgment” to uphold the company’s goal “of creating a welcoming and hospitable environment for all guests.”

    The manager’s “intent was to address a customer service and satisfaction issue,” spokeswoman Lindsay A. Cronin said in a statement. The franchise owner, Cronin added, “determined her approach was inappropriate and confirmed the sign has been removed.”

    A man who answered the phone number on the sign told a WBAL staffer he was the former general manager at that location. He said it was an old sign. The man admitted he had posted a similar sign in the past, and said customers complained.

    WBAL sent a reporter to the Dunkin’ Donuts later Monday, Morley told HuffPost. By then, the sign had been removed.

    A man who answered the phone at the Dunkin’ Donuts denied that the sign was ever there.

    “We’ve been getting calls on it, but it must be another location,” the man, who wouldn’t give his name, told HuffPost.

    The sign inspired lots of comments on Twitter.

      Most BSO are suffering from PTSD because of the stories told about the Watson case. According to the lead detective, Watson is the most dangerous person.
      Did you hear?
      Watson called a judge and indicated that the judge was corrupt.

      When I listened to the recording of the detectives riveting hearsay, about Watson, and the people fix cases for him favors at the court house, I immediately fell into a fetal position.
      Our judges are honest. If you don’t believe me, ask the JQC.
      I still get nightmares about victims handing me pamphlets.

      I would like to point out Florida UN-Official Rules of Court.
      1. The public are to be fleeced, and shackled. But not heard.

      The Truth is the most dangerous element, and those who wield the truth as a threat or verbal action must be arrested, and marginalized.

      When truth via verbiage is used in conjunction with the words,
      a) Judge b) Corrupt in the same sentence, that’s an assault.

      I hope this helps ease the obvious confusion.

        You think they suffer PTSD? Did these officers all died in the Month of April from natural causes? Or did they question the Parkland narrative? Or did they know who is involved in the Parkland narrative?

        Ask Miramar’s former SWAT members about it:

        Detective Jeffrey Gilbert or
        Detective Carl Schlosser

        They know…

        So we all can pretend what the glowing picture tube says is the truth or we can live for Truth. Nice new “Red Flag” laws you all have now at your disposal.

        The whole situation stinks to high heaven. Where is the sacred trust in Government if you all keep doing things that are not right?

        The corruption will lead to many cases being retried or thrown out and those that are public servants might want to do the right thing before you break it beyond repair.

    Some important information to check out on Lifestyle Lawyer Africk-Olefson – Group 36:

    Most Important Fact:
    Africk-Olefson has no trial experience. An internship in the Public Defender’s Office does not qualify a Trial experience to sit on the State’s highest Trial Court.

    -Africk-Olefson has argued that she has observed court for the last six months. Similar logic would be that if you watch Brain surgery for six months you are now qualified to be a brain surgeon.

    1. She was Demoted and then Fired from my law firm Fowler White Boggs
    https://www.bizjournals.com/southflorida/blog/2013/01/attorney-shari-olefson-files.html (Article written before complete dismissal)

    2. Three Attorney’s in the Firm accused Africk-Olefson of stealing the firm’s property
    – as admitted by Africk-Olefson in her own lawsuit.

    “Africk-Olefson alleges that Russell, Coleman, and Dearing accused her of stealing Fowler White’s property.” (Amd. Complaint, ¶¶175, 183, 189)

    3. Africk-Olefson sued the firm that Fired her. Her lawsuit failed. All 13 counts were Dismissed with Prejudice.

    4. Africk-Olefson’s lawsuit was so inept, that the Firm made the following responses which can all be found in the Federal case file (CASE NO.: 12-cv-62301-RNS)
    on the official court record – Pacer:

    2 Despite being put on notice of the legal inadequacy of her claims by Defendants’ motion to dismiss her initial complaint, which contained many of the same legally insufficient claims, Olefson continues to inappropriately bring such claims and waste the parties’ resources and the Court’s time. ( DEFENDANTS’ PARTIAL MOTION TO DISMISS PLAINTIFF’S FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT – Bottom page 2)

    “Olefson’s weak attempt to craft tort and contract claims out of allegations that clearly do not support them, in an effort to seek damages to which she would not otherwise be entitled, should not be endorsed, even at the pleading stage.” (Page 1 and 2 of same motion)

    “Olefson has completely failed to assert any allegations even remotely resembling a claim for defamation.” (Page 14 of same motion)

    “Olefson’s claims in the present case include precisely the type of pleading of which the Supreme Court disapproved in Iqbal. Her claims consist in large part of the formulaic recitation of conclusory assertions, and do not even include all of the necessary elements to establish the claims purportedly asserted.” (Page 17-18, same motion)

      All the above is true. Olefson has no significant trial experience. While your limited trial experience give you a heads up on Olefson, here is the part you fail to grasp… . You and your husband are assholes. You have both treated people like shit under your shoe for years.

      Olefson is smart, with prepared lawyers and good staff attorneys she will figure it out. One thing we all know for sure, you are an asshole now and would be a huge asshole with robe fever if you won.

      We will take smart and teachable over an asshole any day.

    A pattern of Manipulation or being Disingenuous by Africk-Olefson – who calls herself a “Lifestyle Lawyer”?:

    then being to embarrassed to admit it

    Flew to Tallahassee with Stern to File immediately before deadline

    Playing the name game – after shopping managers and her best “name” – to use Olefson or Africk-Olefson

    Get married 30 days before and then hyphenate to get on top of Ballot

    …First on the ballot over Berger (originally on ballot when switched into race)

    – Florida Bar STILL has her as “Olefson” contrary to assertions that she changed it.

    – Coincidentally, her wife has not changed her name

    Using a picture from 30 years ago for her campaign

    – In an age of Women leaders and equality,
    be proud of your present self!

    Filing against an incumbent Judge
    – then switching races in the last 10 minutes to “name-game” it.

    Saying their career started with the Public Defender to infer certain experience

    – when they were NOT a lawyer but an Intern

    FAILING LAWER

    As her Salary nose-dived from $300,000 to $200,000 the Downward Arc continued the trend to ZERO when Fowler White kicked her to the curb. Africk-Olefson Law Group now makes just $42,060. (Check her Financial Disclosure)

    Instead of practicing law, Africk-Olefson played “Lifestyle Lawyer” on television talking about Halloween, Thanksgiving, Last Minute gifts!, Making sure your luggage makes it to your destination! Where Pokemon GO going next? Why you may want to think twice about drinking bottled water…….

    Ever see this lawyer at the Broward County courthouse? Ever? Ever?

    No Trial Experience Africk-Olefson. No Thanks!

          We don’t get involved in that. We criticize MSM for doing that.
          We don’t tell people who they should vote for, just try to give them as much info as we can, and let people make up their own mind.

          If we recommend anything it’s this:

          Impose term limits by voting every incumbent out every time around.

          Here’s gonna be a very unpopular idea here;
          A statutory solution. Make every qualified attorney serve one term by bar mandate.

          They could be used in place of the retired judges being used now. Paid the same.

    But if you’re in the right circles, you can give advice. A simple – this one seems, in my opinion, to be a hard worker and honest. The other one, not so much. Even things like that help. There’s VERY little info. We are expected to vote blind.
