      Who wouldn’t want County Court? There’s no work. There’s no oversight by Admin. There’s no appeals to speak of. The money is what a shoe salesperson makes but not much less than Circuit. I get it.

    The gross salary of a County or Circuit Judge over the course of 6 years, including benefits, is in excess of a million dollars.
    So…
    Have you run out of criminal cases? No hearings? No new clients?
    Run for Judge
    Are you a family lawyer whose business has dried up?
    Run for Judge (The Family and Dependency Judges have raised little to nothing.)
    Civil lawyer/PI lawyer, insurance companies are not settling claims anytime soon so
    Run for Judge
    * Filing fee to run for Judge is a hair under 7k, so many of the Judges below at the moment have to self fund that amount and more if they didn’t raise money until now.
    ** Total below are net amounts reflecting cash on hand
    Bober- $3500
    Orlando- $11,500
    Bailey- $5700
    Shulman – $25000
    Henning – $3500
    Davis – $86,000
    Ledee- $114,000
    Bowman- $10,500
    Scherer – $23,350
    Dale Cohen – 0
    Siegel – 0
    Murphy – 0
    Holden $38,900
    Tarlika Navarro 190k
    Kaplan 0
    Bidwill $8400
    Tuter $6500
    Feld $31000
    Pole 90,000
    Francois $57000
    DePremo $160,0000
    So who will gamble $6k+ to campaign during a time where the incumbency means nothing? Doubtful there will be many in-person forums or public events to meet and greet candidates. Never in the history of judicial elections has the playing field been so level.
    How to rank em
    1) Gender, women still beat men more than not.
    2) Name game- Hispanic and Haitian names= vulnerable, the amount of money they have is irrelevant.
    1) How much money do they have and can they self-fund if needed?
    2) Who appointed them. Not a good time to be a Scott or DeSantis judicial appointee.
    3) Who has run and won? Novice candidates (only if they have run in the last decade) are more vulnerable.
    4) Prior scandals….adopting a kid in dependency court whose case you presided over and later the kid accused you of wrongdoing.

      And Broward judges work very little as we all know. Its like a slow slide to retirement for a lot of these losers.

      Navarro was appointed & a sitting duck quack quack ya know ? Quackity Quack. She’s had one case appealed and the 4th hates her or whoever wrote the opinion. No one appeals these family judges y’all be hero’s not zeros.

      Who is Francois??
      Came across this post. I used to know Segal well at his years at the public defender. He worked when Schreiber there. Then private practice last 15 years. He also went to University of Florida Law where I knew him. Whiz kid— His friends and profs thought he’d be a judge with his clerkships, Law Review etc.

      Francois states she went to Saint Thomas but the bio on court site says NSU (BIG step up back then). Does anyone have opinions on her? Qualified? Know the law? She was appointed by Rick Scott & in Federalist Society to get that gig. Seems like she’s probably going to hide that. I’m putting together a list of info on all candidates but Francois I know the least about. How’s she in court?? Thanks. Whose winning this one?

      I’d go with Andy. He’s been a good circuit judge. He’s earned a per-retirement spot in county where you don’t have to do any work.

      The real question is why is this Ledee character challenging Judge Destry? I don’t think it’s right for some miami lawyer to challenge a good incumbent like Judge Destry.

      WHY WOULD’NT THESE LOUSY BROWARD JUDGES GET OPPOSITION
      BROWARD JUDGES CONTINUE TO BE THE WORST PERFORMING JUDGES IN THE STATE
      THE ONLY WAY TO GET THESE TROUGH SUCKERS OUT IS TO VOTE THEM OUT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO ACTUALLY WORK A FULL WORKWEEK

        There’s more filed. This only reflects the ones that went public. Don’t forget about all the Fireside Chats.

    It’s not up.
    Why? Is she strategically waiting til the last minute to disclose her financial conditions?

      yes, her numbers aren’t good despite her very effective campaign to create the appearance of infinite wealth. you won’t see that form 6 until 1159 on Friday

      She only got show, no dough. Why else wouldn’t you file with all your other paperwork.? The ex had the flash, hope she ran with some of his cash, walkin’ around in that Chanel suit or faux suit, bag and car- ain’t gonna get you too far. Hope you got a closet full, you’ll need them on the campaign trail. Oh the skeletons you find when you look in that closet, and the friends we keep….

          Great link. The annual financial filings by the Judges are not online for County or Circuit. The State at the email above responds fast. Interesting to see what the Judges put on the Form 6 for 2018 as compared to now, especially when the Judges know how difficult it is to get the Form 6 annual filing.

    Kappy’s a no-show. No arab sounding, low alphabet, crap name to run against.
    I hear his current wife didn’t like hearing about all the domestic violence, drug abuse, poor work performance, sleeping in the office, being fired for lying that surrounds Richard. It will only get worse next time.

      If any of that’s true he would fit in with Broward’s JQC culture.
      Why wouldn’t he take advantage of his strong campaign before to be a winner this time?

      Kaplan can show up. Doubt they’dBoth of these candidates will eat him alive. A seemingly tough race against an incumbent minority and a lifelong trial lawyer in Segal. Francois is a a fellow lifer in government… Family Law. She’s nice big smile but don’t care about the law if you know her whatsoever. I predict the race to Segal. I knew him first year of law school. Great friends. Segal was top 1 percent and sat in back row joking around a lot but more hours in library than librarian.

      MWould be great judge if you want the law followed and respect. (Everyone’s got a sleeper in law school who surprises everyone. 😂 Segal I think worked in big commercial lit (those “A” buildings next to Bayside.) & then a few years went to the Public Defender..) He started his own thing around 2003. Guy is a computer master. Great social media, commercials, ads. He’ll be everywhere. Im gushing like new kids on the block is coming. I have not heard his name in a solid year. We need more successful lawyers coming back not for the money but the calling. Maybe he’ll take me on a date ❤️ Go UF!! You know who I am “the swamp is a swamp let’s golf.”

    Be a Judge for a low investment against:

    Bowman.
    Navarro.
    Henning.
    Tuter.
    Scherer.

    Employess of the Sao, Pdo, and CC should be asking for permission to run.
    These circumstances won’t be again.

        I banged her girlfriend Ana a few times and would love to bang Milly. She’s hotter than Ana and Ana was a hot piece, Milly I’m sure is a way hotter piece.

        Yes. The easiest right now is Rodriguez. By far. Blacks and latinos are losing every time. Solid Americans and of course the Jewish folks picking up all the Broward seats. After Parkland people are tired of what they see as violent Latina’s (shooter Latina! You think that anyone wouldn’t vote against her? Article was based on the trends on south Florida only. Kaplan good Jewish name could & would beat her. Everyone is watching trumps not us chumps.

          Rodriguez could be easily beat. He’s fallen off the wagon so many times it’s probably a good idea to retire him from the bench anyway.

    2.51 pm is off base
    Although Ian(Two Time Loser) Richards appears to have a slightly higher net worth than Judge Navarro, it results from his listing 3 structures that no person in their right mind would want to own or live in. He values them at $674,000 with no mortgages. That is good because no one would lend him any money on any of them. Navarro has more available cash than Richards aside from retire
    ment funds.
    Richards asserts that he made $30,000 practicing law last year. That says all you need to know about him.

      I hope that’s not the real judge Cohen, sounds pretty racist to me? Where are these structures located? Maybe in a diverse area? Hmmmm
