SO LONG, DALE …

 The Original Blog Star …

Dale Ross has announced his retirement via judicial email:

12:25 PM

I have just sent my retirement letter to the Governor.

These past thirty-five (35) years have been a heck of a ride.

I want to thank all of the maintenance personnel, security folks, jury room, clerks, Court Administration personnel, etc., etc., who are the “unknown soldiers” who are never recognized, but make this building run.

Special thank you to all the JAs. You are an incredible group of people and are the back bone of the court.

I hope the years I served as Chief Judge made your lives better. I’ll miss most of my colleagues and all of you.

Thanks for the memories.

Dale Ross

        His direct supervisor would be Judge Speiser but technically Judge Tuter and then the Chief Judge are in charge.

      I’m sure the Governor is happy to receive your letter of retirement. What’s one less mediocre hanger on Broward judge? I know Donald Tobkin’s probably happy to hear of it too !

          LOVED appearing before him.

          So easy to confuse and get your way.

          I would make him feel important while citing case law. It was downhill from there.

            You’d make your argument, then he’d drawl in that southern accent “now, why, why do I want to grant your motion?” Gave you a chance to call him your honor a few more times.

    Great point.

    Who in the professional non-high schooly realm writes “I will miss MOST of my colleagues” ???

    Very childish, petty and really leaves a sour impression of Mr. Ross.

    Controversial Broward Circuit Judge Dale Ross is retiring after 35 years on the bench­—a decision applauded by some in the judicial system.

    “Thanks for the memories,” Ross wrote in a message Wednesday, calling courthouse staff the “unknown soldiers who are never recognized, but make this building run.”

    The former chief judge is a polarizing figure. He has a long and acrimonious history with Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein.

    “There are some people who will support him because he did political favors for them,” Finkelstein said. “While Dale Ross was the chief judge, his office was all about politics, not equal justice.”

    Among his critics, Ross had a reputation as a harsh and inconsiderate jurist. One decision was reversed last May by the Fourth District Court of Appeal for his “acerbic comments” and showing “overall hostility” toward a doctor in a medical malpractice case.

    But supporters, like Wilton Manors attorney Michael Ahearn, applaud his empathy.
    “Judge Ross was a humble man from humble beginnings, who through an unrelenting work ethic, became at (the) time the longest serving chief judge in the history of the State of Florida,” Ahearn wrote in an email following the judge’s announcement.
    “Besides being a fine jurist … I saw a man of compassion who loved his community and his family.”

      The saddest thing about Ross retiring and the most telling, is with 30 years as chief judge, upon his retirement the only other hog he could get to write something nice about this butt meister is ATURD ??? What does that tell you that you don’t already know ? Lol

      Humble man ? Humble beginnings ? It makes what will be remembered of his tenure as chief judge all the more regrettable given the fact that this humble man let it all go to his head and was one of the most arrogant, obnoxious, stupid, manipulative and politically pungent idiots to ever hold judicial office in the State of Florida. Know it’s just my opinion, but there you have it. ATURD is just another rotten jelly bean in a jar of rotten jelly beans who spends his time sniffing the pants of anybody that will give him another bean.

      The people of Broward must be sighing a big sigh of relief that this jerk off is finally calling it quits. Talk about everything that is wrong about judges in Broward rolled into one big moron and Ross comes to mind. This is one slimy creep they would do well to forget except to make sure he doesn’t come back like a pig to the trough to try to squeeze another nickel out of tax payers for a job done really badly.

    This is one Moron who won’t be remembered at all as soon as he hits the skids out of the courthouse and starts his new stint in assisted living hopefully some place very very far away. Red Neck Ross along with his henchmen did more to screw up an already screwed up justice system for personal gain and what they perceived as power than any bunch of hoodlums this side of the fight scene of West Side Story. Only this scumbag and his judicial buddies lost it all in the end due to their own selfish stupidity and ignorance. If anything at all, that’s what he will be remembered as, a two bit petty dictator without the smarts to hold it together. Good riddance. It couldn’t have happened soon enough for all the misery you subjected the citizens of Broward to.

    Couldn’t be happier to hear this. Ross was too stupid to know how bad he was, but like most idiots, he didn’t much care either. He had to have been one of the least respected judges in the history of Florida. The only reason he was chief judge so long is because none of the other judges wanted it. They were at least smart enough to know somebody like Ross would wear it like some badge of honor. Too bad it wasn’t. Just a small time redneck in a little town like Broward that outgrew his brand of BBQ sauce but was slow in the process of shaking him off.
    Now that this imbecile is finally calling it quits, the only thing I can say is good luck and good riddance bud. You gave us all a bad name. Hope to never run across you again. You should have hit the road a long time ago. You are undoubtedly one of the biggest numb skulls I’ve ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

      Most are trying to forget his tenure and forget him. He watched his other pimp judges fall all around him but he kept on plugging… I remember everytime the press would be looking for him he’d hide out in the stairwell. Seemed like he was always lurking in the stairwells. Now that the new courthouse is ready there’s really no place like an old relic like Ross. His strong arm tactics are a thing of the past. He can just wander on off insisting he be called Judge Ross to remind him of just how important he thought he was.

      Best. Post. Ever. Dale helped bring about this blog without even knowing it!

      To those in the know, back when this JAAB idea was just a concept, back during cloudy evenings and late nights at Gelin’s house – inspired by Bill’s public records requests to find out things like, just as one example, what judges were doing behind the scenes with court-appointed conflict attorneys before the system we have now (when so many of you were in law or high school), this blog tested the 1st Amendment, tested people’s character and integrity in standing behind their posts (and judicial rulings) and was the catalyst which brought about significant change to this county.

      Prior to it, there were NO contested judicial elections in Broward. Thank you, Mr. Ross, for daring to test the waters…

    Ross was a bully in a robe. He gave me perhaps the worst trial I have ever had in my 30+ years and it was still a 10 minute not guilty! He was so mad he wanted to take a swing at my client. The Broward court system is so screwed in part due to his steroid-juiced “leadership”. Now can you please take Mike Satz (even though Mike is a nice guy) with you, please?!

    I remember when the blog inadvertently tested and became the battle ground for what could be said regarding a judge. A la the Aleman nonsense.

    So don’t call a judge a witch. I’ve seen trials in Ross but never had my own. But there’s plenty of judges that still give a terrible trial. It’s a farce really.

    ROSS WAS AND STILL IS A BOIL ON THE BUTT OF HUMANITY. THIS BLOG BROUGHT ABOUT THE FIRST LANCE OF THAT BOIL AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN BRINGING DOWN A FLORIDA CHIEF JUSTICE TO SEE FOR HIMSELF WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH ROSS AND FELLOW BROWARD JUDGE CRONIES.
    IT WASNT TOO LONG BEFORE ROSS WAS BOOTED OUT AS CHIEF JUDGE AND THEN SPECHLER FOLLOWED HIM IN HIS FALL.
    MUCH HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED IN BRINGING TO LIGHT THE CRONYISM THAT FLOURISHED UNDER THE ROSS ADMIN BUT SINCE WAS CAUSED TO DISSIPATE UNDER THE LIGHT OF CLOSE SCRUTINY AND EXAMINATION AND THE INTRODUCTION OF TRUTH.
    ROSS LEAVES NO LEGACY OR TRIBUTE TO JUSTICE. JUST TESTAMENT TO SELF INTEREST AND MANIPULATION THE TRAITS OF A MAN OF SMALL CHARACTER AND VISION.

    There won’t be to many people including some other judges, hence Ross’ comment about “missing SOME of his colleagues” that are sorry to see Dale retiring. This dude should have retired many years ago and done us all a favor. I can’t feel sorry about him calling it quits. I’m pretty sure when the Governor’s office received his letter they let go a sigh of relief. With his absence, he brings to close a long regrettable era in courthouse circles. I wish him luck. He has a lot to think about.

    Controversial Judge Retires After 35 Years
    Samantha Joseph, Daily Business Review

    Controversial Broward Circuit Judge Dale Ross is retiring after 35 years on the bench­ — a decision applauded by some in the judicial system.

    “Thanks for the memories,” he wrote in a message Wednesday, calling courthouse staff the “unknown soldiers who are never recognized, but make this building run.”

    Ross is a polarizing figure. As chief judge from 1990 to 2007, he’s credited with holding the post longer than anyone else in Florida’s history and pioneering Broward’s first drug court to offer treatment, not imprisonment, to addicts. He’s also part of a family of judges, including his daughter, Stacy, and her husband, Judge Alberto Ribas Jr.

    “As chief judge, Dale Ross was always loyal to and proud of the Broward judges. He always tried to assign judges to divisions that they would enjoy,” said Jay Spechler, a longtime friend and former judge who was administrator over the county civil division during Ross’ tenure as chief judge. “He was unique as a chief judge in that he always worked in a division.”

    But scandals plagued Ross during his time on the bench. Detractors painted him as a deeply flawed man and accused him of drug use, sexual abuse, harsh sentencing and political pandering.

    “Who Dale Ross is was not a secret,” Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein said. “People used to go into his courtroom for fun, to watch him rip apart poor people. The man was mean.”

    Among his critics, Ross had a reputation as a combative and inconsiderate jurist. He was reversed last May by the Fourth District Court of Appeal for his “acerbic comments” and showing “overall hostility” toward a doctor in a medical malpractice case.

    “What you have here is a professional history, which would be touted by no one. He was not reversed on fine points of the law, but for being abusive. We’re not talking about a couple of isolated incidents. We’re talking about a pattern,” said Finkelstein, who has a long and acrimonious history with Ross. “He ran the courthouse with an iron fist.”

    Ross declined comment, but his supporters applauded his contribution to the judiciary.

    “Judge Ross was a humble man from humble beginnings, who through an unrelenting work ethic, became at (the) time the longest serving chief judge in the history of the State of Florida,” Michael Ahearn, a Wilton Manors attorney who ran Ross’ last reelection campaign, wrote in an email. “Besides being a fine jurist, during the campaign I saw a man of compassion who loved his community and his family. As chief judge he was an innovator.”

    A spokesperson for Gov. Rick Scott said his office had not yet received Ross’ retirement letter.

    Now Ross can do all the things he never had time to do when he was chief judge for all those intolerable years with all those degenerate people, including other Broward judges but not limited to the ones he will miss, which will probably amount to opening a stil in Indian Town Florida to distill the ingredients of his secret BBQ sauce which some say may contain everything from genitals of wild boar to alligator brains, while he kicks back to enjoy the good life the citizens of Florida have continued to fund for over 35 years, and will undoubtedly continue to fund until he succumbs to old age and senility, which some say he has been living through as chief judge, as he sucks through a multicolored straw, and loses his teeth and what little brains he has left remaining to his concoction, praying for forgetfulness for all the sins of an impossible imposter that could only have existed in the vacuum of space known as Broward’s Judicial Politics.
    Funny, but everybody else has been praying for this day to arrive as well !

    Loads of vitriol but one thing’s for sure in that this man set the tone for all others to follow as Chief Judge. The perception that abusiveness was ok was due to this man. The perception of double standards for judicial behavior vis a vis everyone else better watch it but they were to be held unaccountable. The perception the JNC process is only for club (or family) members certainly holds to this day. The Broward courthouse is the angriest/bitterest place on Earth and still has years to go before crawling out from the long shadow still cast from the Ross years.

    Ross certainly sounds bitter in his email, still holding all those colleagues that voted him out as chief judge for all the sleazy things he’s done, responsible for bringing to an end his era of undeniable embarrassment to a judicial circuit plagued by cronyism and corruption. The likes of Ross and Futch have been replaced by fumbling lazy bureaucrats like Weinstein now. You won’t catch many regretting his absence from the bench.

    Okay, top this.
    In the early 90s I took a pro bono case where I represented the husband. At one point in the proceedings my client yelled out “She’s a hoe judge.” Ross looks at me and asks me if my client needs a psych evaluation. I apologize for the outburst, assure the judge that I’ll get my client under control, and no he doesnt need a psych evaluation. Ross looks at me and says “Are you sure, because your client just refered to the petitioner as a piece of farm machinery.”

That’s all you need to be a judge in Broward. Adios to one if not the worst judge I have ever had the misfortune to appear in front of. He will not make a nickel in private practice.

    It’s a real blessing that Ross the Moron is finally on his way out. How that idiot has been allowed to stick around so long has been bad news for the 17th for too long.

    Didn’t even know this buffoon was still alive. Thought he went the way of Futch. Amazing how long these suckers live when they’re living off the public dime.

    So Dale The Scale is finished sucking at the public trough at last? He must be ready to be going to meet his maker.
    Never experienced a worse judge than Dale Ross. Or a dumber one.

    This scuzbag finally bites the big one! Beats stumbling around the courthouse babbling to himself. It couldn’t have happened sooner before he sucked the last two cents from tax payers of the state of Florida. This DB will go down as the worst judge in the state. Good riddance Moron !!!

    What’s one less scumbag on the Broward bench ? Ross and his croneys ran Broward courts like their own personal cash machine for years ! Now this demented old man can fade away with the kind of reputation he deserves.

    The only regret is that Stale Dale is leaving behind his daughter as a judge on the Broward County bench. Too bad she doesn’t pack up and disappear too.

    So Dale bites the dust. He never was an asset to the bench. He tried his best to stem progress in Broward like it was 1950s Alabama. What do you expect from a truck driver turned judge? I’m glad to hear he’s headed out. Bad judge, stupid and obstinate as hell and never realized the harm he caused to judges that worked around him and the people he negatively affected which were many during his tenure as chief judge of one of the most corrupt judiciaries in Florida. Ross leaves no legacy behind worth remembering. It’s the kind you want to forget.

    This is one judicial glut fly that won’t be missed or remembered but for all the political slime he smeared all over the place everytime he opened his mouth.

    Think I saw Fearless Dale stumbling down Federal Highway pulling a black plastic bag full of something behind him yesterday in Pompano close to the executive airport. Guess the guy has totally lost it or something …

    It’s Dale alright. He’s now apparently peddling jars of BBQ sauce at some restaurant over by where the blimp is housed in Pompano Beach. Don’t think he can drive that beat up old jalopy he used to drive anymore so he’s pushing around a cart lookin to pick up a few bucks from unsuspecting motorists on Federal Highway. Pork and Plenty BBQ. LOL. I take Federal into the courthouse every day so I’m keeping an eye out for him.

    Poor Dale. How far he’s fallen. Reduced to wandering around the parking lot of Pompano Beach Mall looking for loose change ? That’s right. Saw him the other day and said hello and he didn’t even recognize me when I’ve been before him when he was a judge hundreds of times over the years. Sad to say he’s not the man he used to be. A shell of a man would be a better description now.
