SPENCER OUT …

*UPDATE* – text received from Jordy Spencer at 6:01 PM:

I am postponing my run for judge until 2024 due to the medical decline of a family member. I want to thank my friends, family and firm for their continued support during this difficult time.

And a text at 6:02 PM from her former opponent Mike Ahearn:

I was saddened to see Ms. Spencer is leaving our race due to a family illness. I have come to know her over the last few months and found her to be someone who would have been a tough opponent. I wish her well in her future endeavors and my prayers to her family.

Jordanne Spencer has quit the race to fill the county seat vacated by Mindy Solomon, after paying the $6255.08 qualifying fee on April 29th, leaving the following three candidates in place:

      Now, in Broward County under a new administrative order, fewer people arrested in Broward County will have to wait to see a judge.
      The order was issued by Broward County Chief Judge Jack Tuter.
      “Holding people in custody on low-level offenses is just not the way to run a criminal justice system,” said Tuter.
      Most people booked on non-violent, third-degree felony and misdemeanor charges in Broward County will be released from jail and told when to show up for court without seeing a judge or paying a bond.

      Ahearn doesn’t give a damn. Spencer withdraws at 4:22. As soon as blog posts story Ahearn rushes to look like he cares. He doesn’t. He isn’t a good person. Slime ball Ahearn just trying to look like a good guy. Don’t be fooled. Wishing Spencer’s family well.

          He’s good friends with Chief. The podcast was very informative. If he becomes Judge Ahearn I believe there will be many positive changes for the 17th.

      In a statement, Broward County’s Public Defender Gordon Weekes said:
      “It’s important to take a fresh look at bond reform. This new administrative order moves us toward a system that unravels the disparities in the criminal justice system for individuals that lack the affluence to post a bond for a nonviolent offense. The previous system was greatly weighted in favor of the moneyed and its impact was inadvertently punitive towards the poor who could not afford even a minimal bond.
      “While the rich could immediately bond out without facing a Judge, the working poor would be further set back as they lost their job, get evicted from their homes and have their cars reposed as they sat in jail at a cost of $110 to $130 a day. Merely because they could not afford to post a bond.”

    Who cares about this. Why are you posting about the no bond in Broward! Aren’t you a defense attorney. Isn’t this bad for business. Not to mention criminals running free

      Elections has consequences. 2020. “The new order in Broward County was a collaborative effort. The state attorney’s office, Broward Sheriff’s Office, the public defender’s office all had to sign off on the order. After a year, they said they will reassess and tweak it as they go.”

              Can’t everyone finally agree that damn near all politicians (R and D) who make it to the top are compromised people who will do anything and say anything to become so called Public Servants and can’t we agree to put in term limits and limits on campaign spending so we can have a government of the people and for the people instead of the mess of self-interested people who put themselves above all of us and then make tens or hundreds of millions after they cash out of office?

      U know it’s not true, and if it was Tuter should have reassigned the CRU Z case to an experienced judge that knows what they’re doing instead of Liz who’s not up to the task obviously.

  6. Bill Gelin "writes for a blog" and repeats to the press only his biased side against the chief judge says:

    CBS News wrote: “Bill Gelin, a Ft Lauderdale
    defense attorney who writes for a blog said
    “”This is not a Scherer problem; this is a
    chief judge problem … (The chief judge) should
    have scrapped the random process and assigned
    a more-experienced judge or got the prosecutors
    and defense attorneys to agree on one.””

    Gelin doesn’t tell you that these Cruz lawyers
    want errors in this trial so that the trial has to be
    repeated after appeal … For that reason, they
    would not have agreed to a more experienced
    trial judge or to have scrapped the random
    selection of the trial judge.

        because defenders’ motion to disqualify
        is an objection, not an agreement with
        prosecutors …. An agreement with
        prosecutors, as Gelin disingenuously
        proposed, waives error they would claim
        on appeal as grounds for a retrial.

      Bill happens to be one hundred correct on this one !
      Elizabeth Scherer should never have been allowed to be the trial judge in this matter.
      From what I’ve watched of this trial, she would have problems doing traffic tickets.

          When Cuddihy asked Tuter to clarify that Scherer had spoken directly to Marcus, “Tuter responded yes, but that it was a ‘private conversation’ and he did not want to bring Judge Scherer ‘into this,'” the motion claims.

          It says Scherer has not notified the defense of the communication, as required by the Code of Judicial Conduct, so “the defendant does not know the extent or duration of the ex parte communication.”

          That fact, combined with Scherer’s prior employment by the state attorney’s office – where she was personally mentored by State Attorney Michael Satz – “has created a reasonable fear defendant that Judge Scherer will not remain impartial and that the defendant will not receive a fair trial in front of this judge.”

          The defense is asking the case be randomly assigned to anther judge.

        FEEL A LITTLE SORRY FOR LIZ SCHERER. SHE CANT SEEM TO CATCH A BREAK. TUTER SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER TO ALLOW HER TO HEAR THIS CASE.
        TUTER HAS BEEN A STAIRWAY TO HELL FOR THIS CIRCUIT.

    Everybody knows that Jack Tuter worked for Scherer, ran for judge and miserably lost, was then appointed by the JQC, then skunked his way to Chief Judge, and obviously is aware that the CRUZ CASE should be tried by a veteran judge with Trial experience of which LIz has little to none, but has done nothing as Liz Scherer is going down by the bow as she mucks up this case as both the Prosecution and the Defense are fully aware.

    Rogow is just the go-to pimp that judges have rolled out for years to back up bad decisions of which this candy show is just one. Liz is way out of her depth and everybody knows it.

    To expect Chief Judge Tuter to address this problem in view of his past and many bungles is unrealistic. His motivation has been and always will be to play the credit game. You can with certainty say he deserves the credit for this mess.

    “The Cruz case shows what happens when you have an inexperienced judge handling a high-profile death penalty case,” said Bob Jarvis, a Nova Southeastern University law professor. “Any jurist would have found this to be a tough case to handle, given the inordinate publicity, but a highly trained judge would likely have done better — i.e., kept their composure, avoided obvious mistakes, and given the defense fewer grounds for appeal.”

    Only in Broward would people have to worry about lawyers taking advantage of a Judge.

    For crying out loud.

    My heart sank when I read this part of the article:

    David Weinstein, a Miami criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, said both sides should use their advanced experience to educate Scherer, not take advantage of her.

      She was never going to make it in private practice. So her options were always limited to a Gov. Gopher.
      I think she only tried one case while she was in the SA, so it doesn’t surprise me that she’s messing this one up.

    Does no one else see how absurd this is? Think about it: every comment is talking about how scherer is unfit to handle this type of case. BUT A JUDGE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PRESIDE OVER ANY TYPE OF CASE THAT MIGHT FALL BEFORE HER. So if she’s unfit for this type of case, she is unfit for any case. She has skirted by farming her trials out to other judges, while she strolls in with her Starbucks an hour late for court…and all she does is handle calendar calls. And overly harsh sentencings. She should be recalled. We can’t keep letting independently wealthy people who are not qualified to sit in judgment and get away with fleecing the people. RECALL. RECALL. RECALL.
