UPDATE

Bye Bye, Bailiffs – mainstream media is working up a story on the demise of the 17th Circuit’s bailiff system.  Apparently, Broward will be going the way of neighboring counties when it comes to courtroom security, but it will take some time to realize the vision.  We’re told courtrooms will eventually be staffed by a Police Academy trained corrections deputy, and an armed law enforcement officer, without a bailiff in sight.

Where’s the heat coming from?  It’s hard to say, but it’s no secret that as with the judiciary, a handful of unprofessional knuckleheads always ruin it for the good guys.  While most would never dream of power-tripping, it happens.  Additionally, judges may simply feel they need more security, as dockets swell and courtrooms tend to resemble a circus environment on busy days.  It may be theorized that better trained courtroom staff will make for a more professional environment, which certainly is the case in Miami-Dade (corrections) and Palm Beach (armed law enforcement).

The good news is bailiffs have some time to plan.  Sources tell us it will be “six or seven years” before the proposed changes are fully realized, mostly due to budgetary issues.  There simply isn’t enough money to pay the higher wages of the number of corrections and law enforcement deputies necessary to look after a hundred judges.  The implementation plan is thus one of attrition, namely saving up money by continuing the current practice of not replacing bailiffs as they quit or retire.  The new system will be put into effect courtroom by courtroom, until the new staffing solution is operational circuit-wide.

More information should be forthcoming.  Apparently, there’s a meeting with BSO brass and mainstream media this afternoon, so stay tuned …

Staycation over? – the Fourth DCA has given the AG/SAO until Friday to clarify the cases they believe John Contini should be disqualified from.  As everyone knows, the State has been arguing that damn near every open case before Contini at the time the Fourth issued the stay order should be stayed, and John has complied, absent clarification from the court of appeals as to which cases were actually “pending sentencing“.  Additionally, because the stay order is directed at Division FG, and not Contini specifically, efforts to have other judges substitute in to move cases have been successfully thwarted by the SAO.  The result has been loads of people sitting in jail that probably shouldn’t be there, but all that seems likely to change soon, in an apparent victory for the pro-Contini forces.

From an August 3rd Fourth DCA order:

The state is ordered to provide this court with a list of cases “pending sentencing” as previously filed in which a motion for downward departure has been filed.  The state shall file the list in this court by Friday, August 7, 2015. (emphasis added)

We’re told the number of cases that fit the criteria described above could be in the twenties, so hopefully it’s back to business as usual in Division FG soon, if the folks we’ve spoken to are correctly reading the tea leaves …

      How astute. I know, all too well, that some of those Court Reporters compromise the “record”—if not “make” the “record”, knowing where from where their bread is buttered from. And, when the Judge tells the CR to go off- the- record, tough luck for the teller of the inconvenient truth. Ugh. Some of those CRs can’t even get the names (identities, places), grammar or spelling right—unless their errors (and, of course, their omissions) are purposeful. They should all be reporting/transcribing in real time, or otherwise digitally, in this day in age, and the court/17th should have audio-recording as a back-up. But, that would be too prudent, reasonable and objective for The Club within that ‘roo court .

    Court Baillifs are as incompetent in Broward as almost everyone else dealing with our courts; from that moron Clerk of the Court, to its drunk or drugged up judges, to that idiot chief judge who does impressions of Marlon Brando.

      It is a judicial problem to a degree. Bailiffs (or whatever they’re called these days) should be rotated regularly. When they stay matched to the same Judge they take on the personality of the Judge. A good Judge, like Judge Bidwill means good mannered Bailiffs. OK. But a bad temperament Judge (there are a few) means a badly behaved Bailiff feeling empowered by what they see the Judge exhibiting daily to the world or because they may know the Judge’s true feelings toward a certain lawyer or Defendant and think they have a green light to stick the needle in. Like the Anger Translator to the President from Key & Peele, an unlucky litigant feels the heat in ways the Judge can’t publicly express both overtly and passive aggressively. Example. Your client will be up last, and add a pucker face snicker. I hope BSO carefully evaluates all men and women before jettisoning dedicated and kind individuals who have given so much to Broward. Shouldn’t it be easy to identify rotten eggs and lose them first? I hope so.

    BROWARD’S GOOD OLE BOY SYSTEM IS FALLING APART. ROTATE BROWARD JUDGES AND BRING BROWARD COUNTY INTO LINE WITH OTHER CIRCUITS IN THE STATE. INSTITUTE TERM LIMITS FOR CHIEF JUDGES IN BROWARD AND END JUDICIAL CORRUPTION BY MAKING JUDICIAL OFFICERS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR SCHEDULES OR IN THE CASE OF BROWARD, THEIR LACK THEREOF. JUDICIAL OVERSITE IS BADLY NEEDED IN BROWARD TO END THE JUDICIAL FIEFDOM ATTITUDE OF MOST OF BROWARD JUDGES. BROWARD DOESNT NEED MORE JUDGES. WHAT IS NEEDED ARE JUDGES THAT WORK AN HONEST DAYS WORK FOR WHAT THE CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA ARE PAYING THEM.

    Judge Holmes gave a wonderful speech to all the Circuit Judges at the Conference this week in regards to issue of race and the Judiciary. Word is that she spoke of her own time in Civil where she she heard a lawyer told the Chief Judge at the time (she didn’t say the name, had to be Tobin) that they didn’t want to go before a black judge and thereafter Judge Holmes ended up back in Criminal.

    As you can see from the article below, Tobin not only transferred her out but made her Administrative Judge of Criminal. Judge Tobin probably gave her the Admin position as an added perk,hoping she would remain quiet and be happy with the transfer.

    All of this happens in 2008. What lawyer was at the zenith of his power then? What lawyer would had the arrogance to do this and probably bragged to his pals that he had the power to move Judges at his whim?

    Scott Rothstien that’s who

    How many black lawyer worked at RRA?

    I am sure no one forgets the infamous memo from Vic when RRA imploded.

    Holmes has never been capable of keeping her mouth under control, especially when talking about herself which is most of the time. She seems to have one major intitlement problem that stems from who knows what in her childhood if I had to guess. Her actions in court leave one wondering what’s really going on in her head that she goes on like this. She should try just doing her job for once because nobody is amused with her self aggrandizement constantly.

    Peletz would spend a few months in one jail only to be busted again for similar crimes in other parts of South Florida. He bragged in a letter to Broward prosecutors about how despite regularly committing crimes, he was never locked up for more than a few months.

    “I am looking forward to another slap on the wrist from you mental midgets in Broward so I can get back to my true calling in life,” Peletz wrote. “Which, if you haven’t figured out by now, is smoking crack, robbing stores and running around with hookers and as long as there is drug court for me, I’ll never stop.”

    Sure, Judge Holmes is not always the easiest person to deal with but how pleasant would you be after dealing with blatant racial Judicial politics from the likes of Tobin. I will still take her any day over Scott Rothstein and his racist puppet of a Chief Judge, Vic Tobin. If I had to guess Scotty R didn’t feel Holmes sufficiently kissed his ass one day in Court and told his bitch Vic Tobin to move her ass back to criminal. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few N-words or “those people” were thrown around between Vic and Scotty.

    Holmes may be awakening now but I say she’s been with the wrong team since the day she passed the Bar if she wanted to make a difference with her brain in this lifetime in the area of equal rights. Imagine the change she may have brought to this racist southern garbage dump if she had applied her generous gifts of intelligence, charisma, and radiant spirit in the spirit of Mandela and MLK. The good news is she’s still young. I hope she continues to carry the ball forward and becomes an outspoken leader for change.

Never has been able to do much but run her big mouth and use the race card to her own benefit. It’s getting pretty old this crap. Remember how she stuck up for Gardiner when she was well aware of what was going on just like everybody else. What does that say about integrity? Leader for change ? What a laugh !

    CJ Winey Weinstein thinks the judges are underpaid ! LOL. Add up the hours they actually work and figure that one out. The bailiffs are utterly worthless and unprofessional in Broward. Like pet monkeys of the judges. It’s a good idea to replace them ASAP with properly trained professionals like they have in Dade and WPB. Then again, they have better judges there too which makes a big difference. The monkeys in Broward take their cues from the bad judges who allow them to act like idiots for bananas. I won’t be sorry to c them go for something much better. The real question is why Broward courts are so far behind everybody else in the state. The CJ sets a poor example with no caseload like they have elsewhere and does nothing to improve anything but look for free handouts in the way of honoring himself usually involving a long table stacked with jelly donuts. Broward needs to get with it. It’s got a lot of catching up to do. It’s still being run like a one horse backwater judicial oligarchy.

      The fact that you have professional attorneys talking like uneducated morons is hilarious to me.

      It’s easy to sit in front of a computer monitor and talk junk about how bad the bailiffs are, all while walking thru the courthouse in cheap polyester suits and fake Ferragamo belts.

      How come it seems that all bailiffs are being blamed for a few bad apples, unless all of the 100 plus bailiffs all watch kiddy porn and rape people why are they all getting the shaft in this worthless blog?
      Couldn’t the same be said about a few bad attorneys? Should people say that all the attorneys are worthless, WAIT! Most are. SCRATCH THAT.

      It’s known that you have bailiffs that have seen more, accomplished more and did more than some of the Police Academy Trained Deputies in the courthouse. And please, please let’s not get in the topic of the detention personnel also working the courthouse.

      My point is this, haven’t we given this topic enough airplay, or are people lives so meaningless that they come to this blog to live off the topics here. PEOPLE, GET A LIFE!

      IN SHORT, NOT EVERY BAILIFF IS USELESS, OR EVERY ATTORNEY WORTHLESS OR JUDGE, LAZY FOR THAT MATTER. EVERY HUMAN HAS THEIR FAULTS.

Improvement and further training is always beneficial. Ways must be found to ensure everyone comes out of this with a job. And the hateful attacks must STOP.

Do the same assholes that say degrading insults know that those same bailiffs (former officer) get a nice pension every month besides this bailiff check. Let me remind these morons that attorneys like Gina got arrested recently for DUI and drugs. A state attorney last year got arrested for drugs in her home. A few attorneys have cases of their own. But bailiffs are just incompetent ,useless, monkeys.

    Palm Beach is so much better with the qualified personnel that they have staffing their courtrooms. Broward County could be the same which would make it run a lot more smoothly if they implemented the same changes. Working in both places I see a big difference between the two. Change is inevitable, but it’s not always a bad thing. In this case I believe it would only serve to improve the situation.

    If you’ve ever seen some of the incredibly bad behavior exhibited by bailiffs in Broward courts with judges laughing and more or less condoning this type of behavior like it’s an inside joke you might have a different opinion of what it’s like. Some of these people just don’t care about how it goes down because they think judges will stick up for them which in many cases they do when they know it’s very wrong. Complaints are made and they go nowhere because of the us vs. them mentality and they somehow get a kick out of it. Seen it happen many times. Some courtrooms are worse than others it’s true, but it’s not easy to swallow when ever it occurs. I’m in favor of increasing the qualifications or having certified police officers instead of the freak show we have to put up with all too often. A lot of these guys have already retired and are already gettin a check so it’s some kind of extra gravey to them and it’s a big joke to many. I don’t find it funny at all. I’d be in favor of the change personally.

    I don’t find the older crew to be the problem. The retired ones are typically professional types: retired police officers or from business backgrounds. They’re doing a job to pass time and don’t get into peeing contests because they’re not out to prove anything. They treat people with respect.

    To me, if it’s of interest, the problem is with the younger ones. They don’t seem to get it. It’s definitely the us versus everyone else mentality. That’s how an earlier person put it and I agree. The younger ones don’t seem to have much regard for the seriousness of the proceedings. If anyone has ever been there before a judge comes out it’s obvious. Loud, obnoxious carrying on suitable for a break room, but not a hall of justice. The scared inmates and families might as well be at the DHSMV, although it seems even that place is more repectful of the general public. In Broward, where there’s already a lot of resentment and contempt for the judiciary and police, this type of adolescent behavior merely adds fuel to a simmering fire.

    I don’t want to see anyone lose a job either but I think making things stricter in the decorum department is necessary. Judges haven’t kept the staff in check like they should, and maybe its not their job anyway. I join those who think this is a good thing but stress training is the route, not termination.

    Not all the bailiffs, deputys (name du jour) are bad, as not all the judges are bad.

    Some creek around the courthouse and it makes you wonder what would happen if they had to act quickly in a crisis (judge as well) . Some actually keep order in the courtroom and some are right up their judges backside of the robe and cover for each other when they ditch out early, not there, hiding out….you get it.

    As far as the powerz that be, forget it. They could give a rats behind about what goes on. When was the last time any of them worked a full month behind their desks and the asylum wasn’t run by the inmates?

    And to those who dis former CJ Ross – most of the crap that’s going on now would never be. Of course Whiney gets reelected. The lazy ones who don’t work a full week have it made in the shade while the rake in the $$. Of course they dis Ross. They’ll never learn.

    And the lower level employees who are furloughed or go without raze for years…………..they might as well not exist. If one had to guess, the uppers would rather take care of them$elves than the people who actually do the work.

It’s like a circus on most days with scenarios resembling Beavis and Butthead instead of a court of law. Lol. Trying to minimize it doesn’t solve it either and to think that training is going to make it any better with some of these old timers on the clock is just a bad joke.

    I’m a Bailiff at the Broward courthouse and I don’t appreciate things I’ve read in here about me and my fellow co-workers. Big words from a bunch of people who won’t leave their names behind on these comments . And as far as the courtroom being a circus, there have been many a day when we as bailiffs have had to ask attorneys to quiet down in the courtroom and we have sometimes had to ask an attorney to take their conversations outside. I have also seen that it doesn’t take much intelligence at all to pass the bar.

    Again as some has stated before it’s not all bailiffs. I personally would not be surprised if it’s not more or less newer attorneys posting these unfair comments. For those of us who has been around for many years we see the decline as well. However, this is not solely because of the bailiffs and judges.
    Years before, and definitely some still do, judges would take the bench exactly when the docket stated, but they also would not be waiting for attorneys. You don’t know how many times court has been opened, the judge is on the bench and there is no ASA or PD. Why? Why should a judge take the bench only to sit and wait for attorneys to arrive. They’re not the only ones being paid by taxpayers. More so , as a bailiff it’s very difficult to maintain control and order in a courtroom when you have attorneys who don’t exhibit courtroom behavior, not to mention attire. You guys come to courtroom and think it’s social/happy hour and feel a need catch up and discuss nonsense. There use to be judges when you walked into their courtroom you could hear a pin drop. Attorneys wouldn’t dare answer their phone or talk to clients while the judge was on the bench; especially when the judge was discussing another case . They already knew to take it outside, yet we spend all morning asking attorneys to be quite like it’s a 1st grade classroom. The females attorneys come in tank tops, mini shirts and spandex leggings, while the male wear the same suit all week usually without wear ties yet if they do, they’re dirty and wrinkled.
    You guys keep mentioning Dade and a Palm Beach. I would love to see most you go before those judges dressed the way you do and this with behavior .
    Simply put, you get what give.

    I was in a federal courthouse in Texas once where they had a conveyor belt moving inmates from detention to the courtroom. Inmates were seated and shackled the entire time and the Judge would press a button after she was done with one defendant and the belt would start moving until the next one arrived. As I recall seats could be added or removed depending on how big the docket was or how much time she wanted between hearings. It seemed efficient but expensive to maintain.

    BAILIFFS ARE UTTERLY WORTHLESS IN BROWARD. MOST ARE RETIRED AND SUCKING OFF THE PUBLIC TROUGH AGAIN. THESE DOUBLE DIPPERS SHOULD DISAPPER AND MAKE WAY FOR QUALIFIED COURT PERSONNEL WHO CAN ACTUALLY PROVIDE SECURITY. IN BROWARD BALIFFS ARE EITHER TRYING TO SELL YOU SOMETHING OR STRUTTING AROUND LIKE THE OWN THE PLACE. THEY NEED TO BE RETIRED PERMANENTLY WHERE THEY CAN DROOL OVER THEMELVES IN SILENCE.

      “BROWARD NEEDS JNC REFORM”

      Why? The system is working perfectly if the only necessary criteria are political connections and an inability to run a docket.

      The poor Bailiffs don’t deserve this, but the truth is since there’s little respect for a judiciary where maybe 50% are directly related to a sitting Judge, politician, or political fund raiser, there will never be order in Fort Lauderdale courts unless there’s a guy with a gun standing there to enforce it. I almost forgot, the other 50% not related to somebody are littered with Dui refusal arrests or ethically challenged or can’t get up to speed affirmative action types because good minority candidates don’t bother to apply because it’s all perceived as preordained. The Chief Judge doesn’t carry a docket, and would rather gargle barbed wire than move or discipline a mismatched or badly performing Judge. It’s a total disgrace and now the Bailiffs are paying the price because everything is someone else’s fault in the 17th where the Judge’s are treated like they’re some kind of royalty no matter how many times they let the public down or rub dung in everyone’s face with their hinckey dinkey JNC appointments.

    Pimps LMFAO!! I’m dying most of the male attorneys come to the courthouse to find who’s va jay jay they can get into … Some of the females are just as bad with their street walker outfits… You guys are the disrespectful, incompetent morons we have to deal with.

    As far as I’m concerned they should bounce the bailiffs. These guys couldn’t maintain security if you drew them a road map on how to do it ! They are just a bunch of former old whimps that moved to Florida from elsewhere to milk the system some more. Bad attitudes and ineptitude make for a bad combination of traits.

      Let me know when you deploy to a combat zone in Afghanistan so you can teach me all about how to keep security

    They are as unprofessional as everything else in Broward Courts but they don’t beat the skank judges by much !

    Is it me or is Judge Holmes uncharacteristically quiet now. She made her comments to a room full of judges about racism being why she was moved from criminal to civil. I find it hard to believe that if it was true that Judge Holmes would have remained quiet when it took place. Now that it is out there, she should take responsibility for her comments and give the background information on the circumstances of her transfer. If true, the facts need to known.

    Imho after they laughed at her application for US Atty she seems changed. Like quieter in the profile she keeps in central. Idk but maybe she finally realizes like everyone else already knew her once close association with reprobates cost her big time. How does that saying go about coming up with fleas. Mindful the change isn’t a bad one.

    Don’t count on that happening. It’s probably a bunch of nonsense anyway designed to bring attention to herself. Nothin like overusing the race card as a last resort. Remember that idiot Olifont as Supervisor of Elections trying the same crap ? This is just more of the same tactics employed here if you ask me. Holmes can’t keep her mouth under control it seems.

    Ask Holmes why she felt compelled to publicly stick up for Ken Jen or Ana Gardiner when she knew they were wrong in what they were doing. So much for dreaming of being a federal judge with this kind of baggage. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it keep its mouth closed ! Lol

    Maybe the pay isn’t as bad as Laborgia thinks. I mean most people would quit being a leading member of the criminal justice system after getting a first hand taste of what its like being African American in Broward. I say its better working toward the answer then being part of the problem. Didn’t he say Judges become millionaires after quitting? He should visit Broward some time. There are quite a few former Judges could probably use a free lunch.

    Maybe so but to quote an esteemed member of the Broward Judiciary about Judge Grossman ” I ain’t gonna carry the white man’s water !” LOL
    These morons can never keep their pie holes shut.

    The sooner the better. These people aren’t qualified to do anything but gum up docket call. If they stayed out of the way it would help facilitate things.

    Changes where there are in custodies may be ok but I don’t think it’s necessary to change out what happens in Civil.
