UPDATE II – Monica Hofheinz email to all SAO Units at 4:11 PM:
Today a meeting was held with the Chief Judge and other Courthouse stakeholders. It was determined, based on the downward trend of COVID-19 stats that our court system is getting closer to moving into Phase II and we will begin transitioning over the next few weeks and into October.
Phase II – limited in-person contact is authorized for certain purposes and/or requires use of protected measures.
The courthouse will not be opening to the full public or jurors just yet and virtual hearings will continue. Some measures are being installed in the courtrooms for phase II testing purposes.
Two Zortemp 1000 full body scanners with option for foreheads or wrists will be installed and tested at the West Courthouse entrance. Handheld scanners will be used at the 3rd floor rotunda entrance and Regional Courthouse entrances.
For SAO staff, we may be instituting the use of handheld no-contact thermometers at a future date.
We are beginning to bring back several support staff to work in the building with alternating schedules as the work on cases and mail has increased. Maintaining our alternating schedule will help with our social distancing. Everyone is still required to wear their mask, maintain 6 feet apart and not gather in groups.
The elevators are still a problem which has not been resolved.
The next meeting and update will be sometime early October. Stay vigilant and safe everyone.
UPDATE I – Response to a PRR requesting Supreme Court/17th Circuit recent operational plans, received at 4:05 PM:
The Office of the State Courts Administrator has concluded the operational plans in its possession are confidential and exempt, as explained below. That said, the 17th Circuit has its administrative orders about operational and due process procedures available on its website: http://www.17th.flcourts.org/coronavirus-covid-19-updates/
The base operational plan provided to the OSCA is also on its website. You can find the link in the attached document.
In regard to operation plans held by the OSCA: A judicial circuit’s operational plan is a record containing information that directly relates to the physical security of property owned or leased by the state. All such records, including portions thereof, are confidential and exempt from public access pursuant to Rules 2.420(c)(7), and (8), Florida Rules of Judicial Administration, and sections 119.071(3)(a), and 281.301, Florida Statutes, and as such will not be released by the Office of State Courts Administrator.
Original JAABLOG post at 2:40PM –
Firm reopening dates have apparently not been set following today’s stakeholders’ meeting, with a concern expressed over other circuits having reversed course back to Phase I after attempting aggressive Phase II implementation. The PDO and SAO are also said to be in agreement with a slow and gradual reopening plan, specifics of which could be announced after Supreme Court review of a recently submitted 17th circuit proposal. We’re chasing that plan down at this time, but we’re told November or mid-November may still be the operative dates …

Pryor has indicated that if he is elected, he will ask the current state attorney to continue overseeing the prosecution of Nikolas Cruz in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murder case. Rossman said he wouldn’t need his former boss to play a leading role.
Pryor needs Satz doesn’t make Pryor sound confident in himself.
Nikolas Cruz won’t be going to trial for at least 2 more years. Judge Scherer is not doing any work at all right now and will not do anything, and I mean anything until the middle of next year. Her JA is resetting EVERYTHING. Must be nice. So Satz can sit around for a couple of years and keep collecting a paycheck courtesy of the Broward County taxpayers. Broward County, What a disgusting Joke.
They’re having secret meetings about blogs. That’s something.
maybe if Satz had put a ride along prosecutor when BSO responded to his house several time this whole massacre could have been avoided. Sats is a lazy Jew coward who is out to protect his ass in this massacre. IMO he facilitated the massacre by not being pro active . Plead him out to life without parole and make sure is is sent to a prison where there are a few good lifers in general population. save the families the anguish of a trial. and make sure Satz is run out of town the coward that he is.
They think the fact that that speedy trial is suspended so is any due process. Tutor actually sent a memo to that effect.
Is Weekes ok with this?
SLOW AND GRADUAL
IM JUST SLOW
He won. He’s not slow. I think he can make a great administrator. Maybe not a trial lawyer but he’s all we got. I think he will do fine. Good kid.
Um, why would the defenders not be fighting to open up the courts?
Thanks for blowing it Barack and Hillary
BYE RUTH – REST IN PEACE AT LAST
WE ALL GOT TO DEPART THE PLANE SOONER OR LATER
THANKS FOR NOT RETIRING UNDER OBAMA WHEN YOU COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE
Now we need MJS more than ever. The great Liberal Lion of Broward County. Who will protect the Civil Liberties of Browardians now against a conservative backlash that will last for decades. First Mike retires, now RBG dies. How terrible.
Who is Brad putting in her place?
Seriously, who from the 17th should put in to replace Justice Gisberg? Judge Tuter maybe?
MY CUP RUNNETH OVER
SO I SPILLED A LITTLE BIT
MORONS DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE TOO
Ana–as a Hispanic vagina–and very liberal with her “favors” -she’s perfect for female, minority and and other liberal rights. That’s why Butternut plucked her out to rabbi. Since she was robbed of the 4th, SCROTUM should be next.
Uppity FAHNESTOCK perhaps. she tried for every court in this state. dream big child….Don’t worry FAB, Lindsey Graham already knows about you and Dennis . you won’t even get a consideration.
Judge Damoorgian? He knows appeals.
GOOD OLE GIRLS
Justice Spencer Levine, like Justice Earl Warren weren’t Judges before becoming Justices. Maybe Justice Levine would be good. Or a leading attorney like Mr. Bogenschutz.?
Bogenshutts would never do it. Makes too much $$.
Thats why he’s living off Ana’s pension… lol
He ain’t making squat
I SHOULD BE THE NEXT SC NOMINEE
IM BLACK – IM A WOMAN

Is William Scherer on the JNC for the Us Scotus?
That lady from up by Disney (Grosshans) should be appointed. Why delay the inevitable?
MITCH MCONNEL IS ALREADY VETTING THEM
BACDL NEEDS TO GET IN GEAR
ADVANCE A BROWARD JUDGE
This’s Nova’s moment.
Ruth had it in her will to be replaced by a certain dashing Nova Professor she met and admired when he was at Harvard Extension. I just don’t think Trump will go along with it.
Now they have the votes to posthumously pardon Epstein.
That guy that lent President Trump his glasses is on the short list.
He did announce a list last week. Uncanny.
1st, pedigree is important. No St Thomas, sorry. Nova rules.
2nd, no JQC complaints. Sorry, the other half of the 17 is now out.
Next, publishing is important. If no articles in the BCBA Barrister, so sorry. Your’e fired.
That leaves nepotism. Ah, Broward. If not related to anyone on SCOTUS, forget it.
That leaves a few potential qualifieds from the 441 corridor. All they have to do is wait until so conveniently the diversity pick is 86’d on a technicality (that also destroys all qualified minority applicants from making it) and then Broward can boast a Justice.
There are a few judges in Broward with good friends on SCOTUS. This is a huge district. It may we’ll be a Broward Judge. Even a retired judge.
If a Broward Judge is elevated to SCOTUS there will be fun times at the confirmation hearings.
Ana, bring back Ana–she’s ripe for the appointment. And no problem if Trump grabs her by the pussy–She’s just the disease the SCOUTS needs. And Bogey for AG–yeah, that’s the ticket.
I concur on Ana’s quick & fast confirmation hearing.
Nova Rules? I guess in Broward. These days many successful grads but not UM or FSU. Or UF. They let anyone in.
Florida corrections department enters controversial immigration agreement with ICE
Pryor needs Satz to hold his hand. Sounds weak. Satz retired Harold. Let him ride into that sunset. You don’t need him.
Holmes and Satzie will be lumbering around while HP hides out. I wish Kimok had won.
Kimok is a real trial lawyer. Showed he could organize a lot of supporters & raise bukko $$. He’d run the office great. But Pryor had tge black church tour. They never closed black churches. Why COVID is 8x as bad in those neighborhoods.
Oh, and Pryor was on the 350k black voters guide put out by Holness’ PAC. Was Mitch Ceaser the one that set that up?
Mitch couldn’t be elected dog catcher.
So how could he set that?? Makes no sense.
Unfortunately, Kimok is a coward when it comes to carrying out his beliefs– much like another Conway.
Conway filed and ran for judge, so how is that not “carrying out his beliefs”?
Sure, he bailed from the PD race, but he ain’t black – so had no chance in getting elected to that position.
Oh, I get it. You’re just jealous because you’re a fat loser who wouldn’t run for anything yourself
GREEN BEER AND POTATO PANCAKES MAKE FOR A GOOD POLITICAL PLATFORM BUT BLM NOW TAKE THE JOBS IN BROWARD
“WATCH WHAT U WISH FOR”
Keeping Satz on board in any capacity is the complete opposite of the change you campaigned on.
I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU
BUT I DONT KNOW IF I CAN STAND ANYMORE OF ILONA HOLMES
I like it slow and gradual and then fast and hard.
Up late trying to jerk off because your ugly wife went to bed?
Sounds like someone was up pretty late (11:20) accusing someone at 7:20 of jerking off. I bet 11:20 above has a wife looks like a gorilla.
ugly is in the eye of the beholder
BUT SHE KEEPS ME ON MY TOES
“HOW ABOUT ANYWAY U CAN GET IT”
BROWARD JUDGES ARE A BREED ALL THEIR OWN
ONE U DONT WANT TO BE RELATED TO
I would definitely do Sandra slow and steady and deep. Any way that she wants it. She’s Sooo hot. I would do her any way that she so desires.
You must be a weirdo sex crime lawyer trying to get off on the internet.
MORE LIKE SANDRA THE SKANK
YOU MUST BE REAL HARD UP BUDDY
I thought sex crime lawyers only get off in the make up aisle
Stacey loves it doggy style. She can’t get enough of it when I do her doggy style. She’s insatiable.
Perlman should be put in mothballs. She already smells like mothballs. Yuck.
Sandra loves balls. Loves them in her mouth and loves to be banged balls deep. Shes a very hot horney woman.
You sound like a 16 year old boy that has never been laid. Not only do you sound immature and disgusting but to disrespect any woman like this is repulsive. I hope she finds out who you are and files a complaint. This blog shouldn’t allow these perverted posts.
Forget keeping Satz, he’s retired so let him stay home. Pryor and Holmes need to get rid of Heather Hendrickson and Maria Schneider along with the rest of the others running around the office like they are something special and the rest of us are beneath them. Get rid of them.
Satz was a soldier for Broward since the 1970s. He’s run a very independent office. This is his SuperBowl & we need the death penalty here. Not rehab. He has a A) mandate from the populace B) conscience & needs to finish this one. Any real lawyer can understand finishing an important case. He’s making peanuts.
TIME FOR BEDDY-BYE MIKEY
TUCK’EM IN DEEP
“YOUVE HAD YOUR TURN”
NOW BEAT IT
Cut Satz off and refuse to let him prosecute–make him sit on the bench like they did to the dirty dude on “The Shield” –finish out his career on a desk, watching the action pass him by and helpless to cheat anyone else.
IVE GOT BIG PLANS AFTER I PACK IT IN
He needs to be drydocked at the last second as is reward for all the dirty administration, fraudulent and wrongful convictions and extreme pain he has caused so many for the last 44 years. Make him sit back and watch while somebody else steals his thunder.
Mike Satz and all of his little asskisser minions need to be GONE, starting with Heather Hendrickson, Ted Daus, Maria Schneider, Sarahnell Murphy, Tony Loe and some of the other ass Kissers that works in this office. They are embarrassing to watch kissing Ass all of the time.
Pryor is not making any changes and all of these people who you are wasting your time saying are going to be gone are all keeping their jobs. Very sad!!!!!
You are the same person calling for hatchet jobs on these people 1000x now. Give it a rest. This isn’t a BLM riot. It’s a blog.
Is it true? A former candidate?
THINK LONG – THINK HARD
BEFORE YOU ELECT THIS HO
Note to self: invest in Noortek Body scanners.
I do some of my best work on my knees. .. lol
SHE’D DO ANYTHING FOR A LEG-UP INCLUDING THROWING HER LEGS UP
WE NEED TO INCREASE TAXES SO WE CAN PERPETUATE THE NARRATIVE OF DIVISION
How can Pryor be the State Attorney and be against legislation that protects the community from violence? Wow how scary!!!
He didn’t run as a progressive. Churches will not re-elect him. Dummy.
POLITICAL LEAPFROG MAKES FOR EVEN STRANGER BEDFELLOWS
Kingston needs her back …
HOW STUPID IS ANTIFA?
The same police they want to de-fund had to save their lives at the bike rally in SD.
They went there to screw with bikers?
What total idiots!
They left the light work to the women.
Rossman nailed it in the Sentinel questionnaire:
Re Pryor: “He’s 33 years old, been a lawyer for 7 years, and has had 6 different jobs during those 7 years”
And I loved this part: “why is Pryor using campaign funds for things like lunch and gas? I pay for those things out of my own personal budget like I did before I was a candidate. And what is this group that Pryor paid a lot of money to .. I checked it out it’s just a UPS store’
Mr. Rossman has a nice questionaire:
That so-called kid is the man Rossman will be calling Sir and begging favors from for the next 20 yrs.
Dunno but after reading his views I say he needs to smoke a bunch of it and chill out.
SUCH A TRAGEDY
AFTER IT COST TAXPAYERS HOW MUCH ?
“AND THEY CALLED IT ART”
We can repackage it and still call it children’s art ! LOL !
ITS HARD GETTING OFF THE GRAVEY TRAIN
WHO DOESNT KEEP ONE EYE OPEN FOR OPPORTUNITY
What am I going to do now that there’s no more YAA mommy ?
THIS IS REAL!
Does anyone know if the bailiffs are coming back next year when the courthouse totally reopens or are the getting fired and replaced by detention deputies. We are hearing that they Will NOT be back next year. Has anyone else heard anything.?
Fyi, they will definitely be gone from the State Attorney’s Office. Say bye bye to Maria Schneider along with Heather Hendrickson, Stacy Honowitz, Tony Loe and some of the other Ass Kissers. Their days are numbered. Bye Bye Sarahnell Murphy too. Bunch of Primadonnas.
Them First Always
You would have had to pull the old hag off the bench kicking and screaming if death hadn’t taken her first. Too bad. She’s left the country in a tough spot just to stick it out to the end.
For her own selfish ends she’s handed it to the far right.
There should be term limits on these justices along with every other politician in Washington.
Two terms and you pry them off the public tit for good. Then they have to get a real job.
These career gophers have made a mess out of every institution in America. They’re like fleas you can’t get rid of.
I don’t know which are worse. The ones who make the big decisions or the ones that ruin lives every day locally (if they can be bothered to show up).
These term limit ideas may be an option at the national level. Those people are employable after leaving national office. They’ve got valuable contacts. Plus they’re typically a cut above. Smart etc. At the local level term limits won’t fly. Those people aren’t employable at all. It’s why they have time to either run for office or grease up an appointment. They don’t have businesses to run. It’s why they typically go from one political or government job to another. They don’t add any value. Few of them go any higher on the political totem pole and that’s testament to why they cling to low level jobs for life like a financial lifeboat in a sinking ship. Since they’re all mostly in the same boat they’re never going to pass term limits. Only pay raises. Term limiting is fine in theory but asking them to force themselves to stand up on their own feet is a pipe dream.
Sad she couldn’t foresee this. But it’s “her watch”.
The old bag thought she was going to be able to milk it forever … Guess she f’d up on this one.
ITS MY LAST WISH THAT MY REPLACEMENT BE MADE BY THE NEXT PRESIDENT
IT’LL BE A COLD DAY IN HELL RUTH
As if they know dementia joe and heels up Harris are going to win?? Only way they win is by mail in voter fraud.
The Sun Sentinel editorial writing has fallen below a professional standard when it includes in its published evaluation of a candidate that the candidate “repeatedly stumbled on the word melanin by calling it melatonin”. Bush League
The Scum Sentinel has become a joke at best, a sad politically motivated rag of a paper at worst. Bad reporting and an editorial staff comprised of morons compete to see just how many readers they can lose in the least amount of time.
Its become totally irrelevant in today’s reality.
I wouldn’t use it to line my cat box.
I was really disappointed when I looked to the Sun Sentinel this election for their recommendations.
For one of the judges they wrote that they liked her because “she tends to answer questions with an old school charm by saying yes ma’am and no sir”
no joke – that was the reason they gave as to why they endorsed her! It’s all because of that old cow and her husband who took over the editorial staff ..now nobody will even take that rag for free
There was a time when print media mattered, taxi cabs were called, papers were delivered, calling people collect was a thing, and you needed a phone book to dial someone.
There was also a time when a Sun Sentinel endorsement mattered.
But don’t you worry, much like YAA, Tribune can’t make rent either.
“Tribune Publishing – which owns multiple newspapers around the country including the Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun and the South Florida Sun Sentinel – had earlier noted in a June SEC filing that it was withholding rent payments for a “majority of its facilities” amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.”
That’s a big reason that we say we will never try to tell voters who they should vote for.
How can you trust a so called non-bias publication when they openly endorse any political candidate?
Really? How dumb do these media outlets think we are?
Sad thing is most are that stupid and listen to them.
BLACK LIVES MATTER. ALL OF THE RACISTS WORKING THERE IN THE STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE BETTER REMEMBER THAT. BLACK LIVES MATTER.!!! VOTE JOE BIDEN/KAMALA HARRIS FOR PRESIDENT. GET THE RACIST TRUMP OUT. GET ALL OF THE RACISTS TRUMP SUPPORTERS OUT OF THE STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
Hey BLM, are you an organization, or just an idea?
Did all of you Trump supporter racists in the State Attorney’s Office watch the debate last night. Joe Biden made your fearless racist leader look exactly like the racist that he has always been. And all of you racist Trumpers in the state attorney’s office are being outed and called out for what you truly ARE…RACISTS. You will all soon be out of a job. BLACK LIVES MATTER IN BROWARD COUNTY AND ALL OVER AMERICA. NO MORE RACIST IN THE STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE. JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS FOR PRESIDENT. WE WILL OVERCOME AND WE WILL PREVAIL AND WE WILL HAVE THE POWER. POWER TO THE PEOPLE. FIRE THE RACISTS TRUMP SUPPORTERS IN THE STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE.
Biden has done nothing for the black people of the United States. He is just doing a snow job on the dumb ones now wanting their votes. All the educated blacks can see right through his feeble tricks. Trump ate him up and spit him out last night Biden laid down andTrump steam rolled right over him.
Biden’s done plenty for blacks … just check his record
If YOU can label ALL Trump supporters “Racist”, then it’s just fair to LABEL all Biden supporters ANARCHISTS and SOCIALISTS!
WASHINGTON INSIDERS WHO HAVE MADE A CAREER OF MILKING TAXPAYERS
GIVE ME SOME
ITS NOT THE FIRST TIME I SLIPPED IN THRU THE BACK DOOR
“Ban on evictions will expire. Now what for tenants who are months behind on rent?” https://www.sun-sentinel.com/business/fl-bz-desantis-allows-evictions-moratorium-to-expire-20200930-fppquozxejg2hgjemnopbqbauq-story.html
Now what for the owners that have not gotten rent in seven months and owe mortgages on the property?
I wonder how many of the Racist Trump Supporters in the State Attorney’s Office are Proud Boys members or sympathizers. The State Attorney’s Office is full of white racists that need to be exposed and thrown out. These racists have absolutely no buisness working as Assistant State Attorney’s. They have been PERSECUTING BLACKS for years and this will stop very soon. We are taking back our country, our counties and our cities. BLACK LIVES MATTER IN BROWARD COUNTY AND ALL OVER AMERICA and we will prevail. The racist assistant state attorney’s will be GONE VERY VERY SOON. BLACK LIVES MATTER, DON’T EVER FORGET THAT. JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS FOR PRESIDENT. THE CHANGE IS COMING VERY SOON. TRUMP IS A BONAFIDE RACIST AS ALL OF US WITNESSED DURING THE DEBATE AND ANYONE SUPPORTING TRUMP OR VOTING FOR TRUMP IS A TRUE WHITE SUPREMACIST AND RACIST. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
If black lives matter you better be a Trump supporter. Name one thing Feeble Joe has done for any black community in America. Feeble Joe is counting on every uneducated black person to believe his bullshit so they will be dumb enough to vote for him then he will forget what black even is. Feeble Joe is a user and con artist. Look up his 47 year political record and see the nothing he has done but make millions of dollars of tax payers money. He has been in politics 47 years has blacks gotten anything from him?
Sentinel says Rossman would just offer more of the same. Time for real change – vote Pryor.
SLOW JOE LOOKED EVEN SLOWER THAN USUAL AT THE DEBATE
VOTE Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President. Kamala Harris will make history when she becomes the first black female president of the United States. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
Other then George Bush, the first one, name one Vice President that was later elected President. NONE!
Dream on, now call me a racist
America has also shown that it will elect a Male Black President. Rather than any color women.
. Fourteen went on to become president: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester A. Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Harry S. Truman, Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush
And soon- Biden.
OK, but in all fairness we said other than The First Bush.
This is what we said:
“that was later elected President”
Also Gerald Ford was never ELECTED, don’t get technical,
No one ever cast a vote for him for that office. He was appointed by Nixon after Agnew resigned.
Johnson only became president because Kennedy was assassinated.
There is still all the other names and LBJ was also ELECTED his second term. So just admit you were wrong.
IM FEELING BETTER ALREADY
Yep that’s just what we need for President, a black gal that slept her way to the White House. I guess she will have a new weapon to negotiate deals with foreign leaders, blow jobs for every one.
WATCH WHAT U ASK FOR
U MIGHT JUST GET THE HO
“DON’T I GET A PICKLE WITH THAT”
BLACK LIVES MATTER
JUST DONT LOOK FOR ME
Hasn’t anyone noticed that the only candidate these so-called “progressive” Democrats can come up with is another old white guy?
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO LET ME OUT DADDY
These people contacted us the other day.
If there are any attorneys interested in helping with this, please contact us through our website and we’ll put you in touch with them. Seems they have the money to pay an attorney:
pleaaaaase HELP,,,,Who do we need to contact,,,judge sandra perlman has denied final summary judgement twice in first year to CAMPBELL hoa attorneys & they ask for $7k in fees,,,& Judge SANDRA said youll never get 7k thats outrageous,,then delayed court 4yrs & then grants them 50k in fees for a late hoa payment we mailed on time but didnt send certified & ingnores our stamtments of facts that prevoius 4yrs all our bills paid on time & since this we hv sent every payment certerfied since,& had $ in bank
PAYBACK IS A BITCH
On November 3 all of you need to prove to us that you are not white supremacist racists. Vote Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President. Do not support the white supremacist racist Donald Trump. He is destroying America and killing Blacks with the Coronavirus. Black Lives Matter.
Vote Biden and watch the destuction of our country. Wake up and realize all the “free” programs he is blowing smoke about can not be free, every one’s taxes will have to find these dumb ideas. Biden slams Trump for not handling the virus correctly but have we heard one word about what he would have done more or differently? Biden is using uneducated black people to get himself elected and nothing more. If he is so concerned about the blacks then why as a 47 year politician has he not done one thing to help them? Wake up Black America and realize you are being used. Just like the virus he has no better plans for you.
SLOW JOE AND A COMPLICIT MEDIA
