    Good job. Putting Schneider in the race to protect Casey only caused Casey to get to women in his race and Padowitz a multimillionaire big donor to Hillary Clinton.

      A big “Ha Ha” to the Miami carpetbagger Casey who thought he could put 200k of his money and get that job unchallenged.

      I might be Irish but you’re not getting my vote.

      Vote Local in August! Every Broward lawyer should give Karen Berger their support (even though I don’t know who the fuck she is).

        Did candidate Michael Lynch (1) in order to aid or promote his election DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY (2) give, or promise to give, pay, or loan any money or other thing of value (3) to the owner, editor, publisher, or agent, of (4) ANY communications media, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO RED BROWARD to (5) ADVOCATE OR OPPOSE through such media any candidate in any election or any candidate for election.

        Is Lynch really going to testify that this enormous amount of work by Tom Lauder over the course of his campaign promoting his candidacy and opposing Inkeles was done without consideration? Is it a coincidence that Lynch shared Thanksgiving dinner with Ahearn, Lauder and Donahue? Is it a coincidence that at his robing he declared Ahearn and Donahue his best friends? Is it a coincidence that Lauder, Donahue and Lauder came together to Lynch’s “victory” celebration? What did Lauder do for Lynch to deserve an invite to his thank you party? Why was he invited to his “primary” victory party at Micky Byrne’s Irish Pub where he was photographed with Shumate and Lauder? Is it a coincidence that Lynch as Treasurer of his campaign issued multiple checks to non-existent, false entities? Is the flow of money from Lynch to Ahearn/Donahue, South Florida Arbitration or related entities going to evidence Lauder/Red Broward received compensation or an other thing of value? Is it just a coincidence that, on behalf of Lynch, Lauder and crew would show up at BagelLand or his private fundraiser at Maguires Hill 16? Is it a coincidence that Lauder and crew would happen to appear and then publish negative internet videos and blogs about Inkeles? Is it a coincidence that Lauder and his sidekick Dennis Shumate mysteriously appeared at Bill Scherer’s personal residence for a private fundraiser? Use your common sense. Ahearn has already demonstrated how slimy he is with his attempted lifetime ANNUITY of $31,500 per year over a two year period thus far.

    I heard that the Turd and Tom Lauder blowup the bathroom at the SEO when Africk filed against Kollra. That’s why the website is so slow. SEO employees had to leave the building because they could not take the horriable smell anymore.

    (Reuters) – A federal judge on Friday sharply criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case in Virginia against President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and openly questioned whether Mueller exceeded his prosecutorial powers by bringing it.

    “I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III in the Eastern District of Virginia said.

    At a tense hearing at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia, the judge said Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in his Russia probe and that the charges against Manafort did not arise from the investigation into Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

    Life lessons from 2018 Part I for Judges looking to run unopposed in the future-
    1. Don’t stand in Help Me Howard’s way over something silly like a bond hearing (Davis).
    2. Don’t be arrogant, rude and difficult for no good reason (Lee and Diaz).
    3. Change your name to your middle name like Jason Allen-Rosner if your name is ballot lousy (Kollra).
    4. Don’t sentence like Judge Stanton Kaplan on VOPs unless you have a great ballot name like Stanton Kaplan (Usan).

    For all the talk and predictions, in the end only 2 Rick Scott appointees challenged. Two of the five incumbents are democrat governor appointees.

    There were soooo many good choices, so much low hanging fruit and in the end, Usan, Kollra and Davis who are good, fair and well liked got hit and two county guys who may not be well liked but have the political clout are challenged. Likely all five will win. How Ribas, Rothschild, Frink, Fahnestock, Izquierdo, Gamm, Robinson, Backman, Hillal, TA Miller, Schiff and a few others escaped is a mystery.

      Simple Answer:

      1. Kaplan is mentally ill and unstable. He thinks more of himself than the world actually sees. He’s trying to “pull a McCarthy”. Kathleen McCarthy is his best friend. Simple a name game. Usan pulls it off for the win.

      2. Kollra is nice guy but lost in space. He hired Mike Ahearn because Tom Lynch told him to do so. Seriously? Barbra Miller, Judy Stern, Jay Spechler and many many other people are done with Ahearn’s attacks. He is the only incumbent (and last) that hired Ahearn. Ahearn and his pals are in deep shit and Ahearn is desperate of money. Kollra loses badly and keeps this bullshit name game going for years to come.

      3. As for Davis, it’s simple, he pissed of Finkelstein. He wins easily but has to take the ride.

      4. Diaz and Lee piss of everyone. They both win easily, but like Davis, they have to take the ride.

        Which State Attorney has been begging people to run against incumbent judges?

        Which State Attorney has been calling potential candidates to run against Diaz? Yes it has come out how many calls SHE has called at least 5 lawyers begging and pleading for them to run. Guess she got to Heise.

        Why did Richard Kaplan pick Usan? Why not read the Broward New Times article titled “Complaint: Broward Judges Late to Court Because They Teach at Private High School” http://www.browardpalmbeach.com/news/complaint-broward-judges-late-to-court-because-they-teach-at-private-high-school-7095790

            The early a.m. docket at Broward County’s criminal court is like the day’s first race at a dog track — if you start late, it screws up the whole schedule.

            But two circuit court judges have regularly shown up to the bench tardy — around 9:40 a.m. or later — in the past school year, according to accounts from three lawyers, two of whom requested anonymity because they work in the court. That has left dozens of lawyers, witnesses, defendants, family members, and cops waiting. To catch up, the attorneys say judges must speed through the docket, leaving less time for each individual hearing or court appearance.

            You have high-volume courtrooms on the criminal side, so you have the defendants and their families and witnesses,” says Bill Gelin, a rabble-rousing attorney/blogger who frequently chides the behavior of judges on Justice Advocacy Association of Broward blog. “They all have jobs, so they end up missing a lot of work. You also have experts, police officers, and lawyers who are charging people large fees. So there’s obviously a lot of issues with delaying everything.”

            A second lawyer who often appears in ‘ courtrooms adds, “They don’t teach daily, but it definitely happens multiple times a week. They set the docket at 8:30 or 9, and they know they’re not going to be there. There’s no other job where you could do that.”

            About a decade back, Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein taught in the same program. He says he worked early in the morning, scheduling any meetings for later in the a.m.. “But I was in a different situation,” Finkelstein says. “I didn’t have people waiting for me.”

            The anonymous lawyer states the issue is not just working a side gig when you should be on your main job. It’s that the side job slows down a whole day’s legal process for personal benefit. “ have a problem with what they’re doing… OK, if you don’t have the money to pay for private school, well, you need to get yourself another job.”

            A second anonymous lawyer is less charitable: “Clients have to be there,” he says. “You show up 1.5 hours late, there’s a warrant issued for your arrest. If you’re a lawyer and you show up 1.5 hours late, they call the case without you.”

            “These are public servants,” Gelin argues. “Public service is about making sacrifices; it’s not about making other people make sacrifices.”

              It’s well known Usan’s docket starts at 9:30. If you show up at 8:30 for a 9:30 hearing you need to learn how to read.
              I don’t agree with all of Usan’s rulings, but he is polte and is easily the most efficient judge in criminal.

            Here is the grief model we call the Stages of drawing an opponent:

            SHOCK & DENIAL-

            PAIN & GUILT-

            ANGER & BARGAINING-
            Frustration gives way to anger, and you may lash out and lay unwarranted blame for the opponent on the opponent or someone else.
            You may rail against fate, questioning “Why me?” You may also try to bargain in vain with the powers that be for a way out of your despair (“I will never oversentence again if you just get him to switch races”)

            “DEPRESSION”, REFLECTION, LONELINESS-

            During this time, you finally realize the true magnitude of your predicament and it depresses you. You may isolate yourself on purpose, and it takes what feels like superhuman strength to get up and go to John Knox Village Bingo Night…..

          Well I guess if Diaz had been nicer he wouldn’t have to worry about an opponent. So many attorneys are so happy that he will have to at least be decent for the summer. Many defense attorneys won’t take cases if he is the judge or will charge more. So if an Assitant State Attorney made calls to get someone to run against him- THANK YOU! Now start sweating and visiting condos Diaz.

        The Trial

        Good morning, Worm your honor
        The crown will plainly show
        The prisoner who now stands before you
        Was caught red-handed showing feelings
        Showing feelings of an almost human nature
        This will not do
        Call the schoolmaster
        I always said he’d come to no good
        In the end your honor
        If they’d let me have my way I could
        Have flayed him into shape
        But my hands were tied
        The bleeding hearts and artists
        Let him get away with murder
        Let me hammer him today?
        Crazy
        Toys in the attic, I am crazy
        Truly gone fishing
        They must have taken my marbles away
        Crazy, toys in the attic he is crazy
        You little shit you’re in it now
        I hope they throw away the key
        You should have talked to me more often
        Than you did, but no
        You had to go
        Your own way, have you broken any
        Homes up lately?
        Just five minutes, Worm your honor
        Him and me, alone
        Babe
        Come to mother baby, let me hold you
        In my arms
        M’lud I never wanted him to
        Get in any trouble
        Why’d he ever have to leave me?
        Worm, your honor, let me take him home
        Crazy,
        Over the rainbow, I am crazy
        Bars in the window
        There must have been a door there in the wall
        When I came in
        Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy
        The evidence before the court is
        Incontrovertible, there’s no need for

      They deserve each other. I don’t think the post above is accurate either. There could be surprises and certainly close races. Lustig has money. He’s a local boy. Lee has never run and many colleagues have had enough of the attitude. Diaz is a seasoned campaigner but a drain on the judiciary. Also not popular. Heise is well liked. The word could spread and like has been said it could be Destry or Seidman time for one or both of them.

    Sokoloff has been on the ballot so many times people might start to think she’s the incumbent. Diaz has beat 2 fairly formidable opponents in 1992 and 2012. He’s more liked than some of you care to admit. Most of his detractors are SAs. Lee needs to go and if his opponent can overcome all the votes Lee gets in the gay community he should win. I can’t wait to see how Lee’s name is presented on the ballot. Roberto. Bob? Bobby? Broward Judges have taught for years at Nova College and the law school. At night. Any second gig that cuts into courthouse time should not be allowed.

        I guess you never appeared in front of Judge Lee when he disrespects the lawyers on a regular basis. He cuts then off. Does not let them make a record. He even tells lawyers to “sit down” when they are just trying to make a good record at trial. God forbid if you don’t agree with his ruling. Just because he’s smart does not mean he deserves to be a Judge. Demeanor and courtesy count too. I can’t wait to vote against him which is sad because he’s a nice a guy when the robe is off.

              Usan had better pump another 75 to 100 grand into his campaign if he wants to overcome a name like Kaplan, plus Usan’s name will be listed last on the ballot making for a disastrous outcome for him.

                You are such a genius Kaplan! Foolproof plan! Your name first and your opponent’s last name is Usan. He could never win with a “U” last name. No matter he is a well connected, respected jurist and you are a legal failure. Dosen’t matter you have it in the bag.

    Lawyers do not become judges because they to help their fellow beings (can’t use man here for obvious reasons). They do it for a pay raise, better positioning for retirement, or the obvious their ego. A good judge has a hard job. Must work every day. Must continually educate themselves. Literally they are a slave to the job. A lawyer who has reached professional success and wealth can only be seeking the position for one reason -ego. As we all know and egotistical arrogant judge is the worst kind. When examining these candidates ask yourself why are they seeking the position? Sometimes it’s better to have the person wanting the job for the pay raise and retirement (who will have to keep themselves in check to keep the job) than the wealthy one seeking to simply put a feather in their cap.

      I agree with most of this but please opine thusly: since everyone knows these people are failures in the business of law and would never seek a judgeship if they had been successful, why in the world do so many of them act like imperious blimps upon taking the bench when in reality they should be kissing the behinds of the successful people appearing before them because of their good fortune in finally landing a decent job? Why aren’t they grateful instead of being obnoxious?

        Having failed at private practice, it’s an easy jump if you can land a judgeship in Broward because it represents a big bump in pay and you hardly have to do anything apparently but piss the rest of us off with pompous attitudes belying the big insecurities that you’ve brought with you.

        Broward judges almost to the last were poor attorneys who just see an easy road to dollars and benefits they cant afford to live without.

        Getting paid from public funds to these judicial pimps is like hitting the lottery as long as you can hold onto it.

        Having to look over your shoulders for the next opportunistic punk can’t be all that fun, but it comes with the job.

        If you ask me, a two term limit on judges would elevate a lot of the political trash and save taxpayers a load of cash instead of supporting these junkies for life. We’d get better judges too.

        Judicial Political Whores would then have to go back to work instead of slacking off all day worrying somebody is going take their little nest egg away.
        The way they run around with their hands out is pathetic.

        I’m in Dade where the judges don’t carry nearly as much baggage as the judges in Broward, hence the attitudes are better and they work much harder with more knowledge of the law. You’ve got a lot of idiots on the bench in Broward.
        I dislike coming to Broward for anything.

        The quality of judges in Broward is reflected by how many are being challenged representing the highest rate of judges challenged anywhere in the state by double didgets.

    Real Deal or RAW DEAL?

    Campaign Manager Judy Stern, fresh off her humiliating string of defeats and desperate to turn around her losing record, leeches on to old pal and new cash cow “Lifestyle Lawyer” judicial candidate
    Africk-Olefson.

    FIRED

    Demoted by her Law Firm Folwer White, which slashed her salary by a stunning 1/3 then finally FIRED Africk-Olefson on May 24th, 2012, allegedly in part for using firm employees to write a book. Africk-Olefson’s own lawsuit alleged that THREE lawyers accused her of STEALING Fowler Whites property.

    LEGALLY CONFUSED

    Fowler White, a law firm with a woman CEO and many women in leadership positions, Moved to Dismiss a lawsuit the “Lifestyle Lawyer” filed after being fired. One issue was for an alleged breach of contract. Africk-Olefson never had a contract, only a Letter of Intent. Opps! The Firm said the lawsuit Factually and Legally had NO BASIS. Oops again!
    Fact deprived and law be dammed!

    LAWSUIT FAILS

    Africk-Olefson filed a 13 count Lawsuit in Jan, 2012. The Defendant slams her claims as an overdressed WEAK attempt with NO LEGAL or FACTUAL support. Every count is argued Africk-Olefson DIDN’T FOLLOW THE LAW or didn’t allege the required FACTS. For example: “Olefson has completely failed to assert any allegations even remotely resembling a claim for defamation” ALL 13 COUNTS DISMISSED with Prejudice 2/6/2015.

    FAILING LAWER

      Like Padowitz wasn’t demoted when she was yanked from a trial division to case filing? . Give her credit, no one could review a PC and give the nod to file a case like Kristin Padowitz.

      Keep on drinking the hateraide. Let me guess? Now, being a traffic ticket lawyer is good enough because of ‘trial experience’ ?? Give me a break.

      Haters gonna hate and the ballers gonna ball. Somehow I don’t think she has “failed” as an attorney by learning other ways to use her knowledge to her advantage instead of the fucking rat race that we all do everyday. Makes her smarter in my book. But what do I know? I’m just in the race like everyone else.

      Put on your big girl pants, Kristin.

      Stern isn’t worth the bagel it would cost to buy her lock, stock and barrel. That old hag couldn’t pull in a single vote if her life depended on it. Heard she’s living in a trailerpark somewhere in Plantation. Would waist the dime. Political Consultant ? That really is a laugh. Only broke Broward judges fall for her line of crap.

    Did the DOJ/FBI ever investigated these judges under R.I.C.O.?

    As it has been sadly under reported on here, Help Me Howard demoted African American Attorney Rubee Greene from head of Misdemeanor to ROC Court. It appears this was done because Rubee was involved in the Broward Chapter of a leadership group called New Leaders Council. This group (comprised of many minority rising stars in the community) recent held a confernece (can be viewed on their FB page) in which many involved discussed and were critical of how Nickolas Cruz was dealt with by PROMISE, BSO, School Board and DCF (aka The Boreaes Establishment) prior to Parkland. Ms. Greene doest appear to be in the video.

    It wold appear Howard and ultimately Gordon to wish to keep the Broward Political Establishment happy so these groups will help secure Gordon’s ascension to PD in 2020.
    Therefore, it appears that it will be taken very seriously, even harshly, for anyone, including black females on the road to being a Chief, if they themselves and/or groups they are associated with are critical of Cruz and/or the Broward Establishment.

    P. S. Did anyone else notice that Gordon was put on the Board involving the Broward Inspector General this week? Gordon may look different than most of the Broward Establishment, but he is becoming on them very quickly.

      Nobody in the PD’s office is allowed to stand out or pursue a leadership role but the fearful leader. Don’t you get it?

    Ever seen so many Broward judges walking around like they’ve gotta stick up their butts ? Sure, there’s a lot of these gophers being run against and they’re having to earn the confidence of voters, but it’s not like they didn’t do it to themselves. Diaz is the best example of a gopher looking over his shoulder for past behavior and poor performance.

    My goodness gracious isn’t it easier to be in court daily moving cases whilst being polite and patient with the litigants and their attorneys rather than spending countless hours outside the courthouse playing judicial demigod and drawing an opponent every 6 years and ruining the summer for everyone in the family and having one’s livelihood threatened?

    Broward County suffers from the largest Judicial Meltdown in Florida State History. The hysteria being exposed from the bench within the ranks of Broward Judges is but one symptom of an overall dissatisfaction with the total lack of Judicial Administration being offered by Chief Judge Tuter. Court Administration is also to blame in part for providing cover for an increasingly dysfunctional Judiciary.
    When is Administration going to realize this fact and institute JUDICIAL ROTATION like in every other circuit in the State?
    Chief Judge Tuter can make all the excuses he wants for the outrageous behavior of Broward’s judges to no avail and to no apparent affect. And then Broward’s judges express disbelief that so many are being challenged?
    Chief Judge Tuter needs to get in step with other Circuits and refrain from allowing so many judicial officers to operate autonomously without any oversight or supervision.
    Otherwise he’s in for even bigger surprises and better start rehearsing his next public apology for the next meltdown from the bench.
    Hasn’t Broward suffered enough indignity already from errant Broward judges with the untimely death of a poor black woman that recently appeared before a Broward judge after being subjected to a shrieking banshee in judicial robes ?
    If Chief Judge Tuter can’t divorce himself from the petty judicial politics of the Broward Courthouse, I guess it’s up to voters to take matters into their own hands and vote out every incumbent judge on the bench.
    The Broward Judiciary is an utter embarrassment to all citizens that should demand Justice from this bunch of circus performers better suited to clown costumes than Robes of Justice.

    Think of what a train wreck it will be if the challengers to the incumbents win? Have you thought of that. Judges work very hard and you are blaming tutor over one judge. get real. Is he suppose to sit in every courtroom and watch them. why not blame the former chief judges since she was on their watch as well.
