Should the County Commission name the new Ceremonial Courtroom in honor of Jack Tuter? Should Tuter accept the honor, if awarded?
YOU MAKE THE CALL!
18.43. – Naming Broward County-owned Property, Buildings, Structures, and Facilities.
The Board of County Commissioners of Broward County may name any property, building, structure, or facility owned by Broward County, or which Broward County otherwise has the right to name, subject to the following process and parameters:
a. In its sole discretion, the Board of County Commissioners may involve outside organizations in the process.
b. Ideas for names may originate from any organization or individual and should ultimately be in writing for consideration.
c. Property, buildings, structures, and facilities should not be named after living persons.

It should be named in honor of someone who has passed or is no longer on the bench. Accordingly, it would be able to be used as a campaign tool
Exactly. And wouldn’t he be disqualified from presiding over cases in a courtroom with his name on it??
A better question is just how many cases if any does he actually preside over. He spends most of his time posing for photo ops and making up excuses for bad judges. The guys a useless fop.
Tuter is a tool alright. The guy has done nothing but politic all day long since taking office. If an time audit were ever done for Broward Judges, it would come up mostly zeros.
ITS GOING TO BE A REAL NAIL BITER
… I worked hard this past year
No wonder Scherer dumped him
How about Michael Satz? He’s been dead most of his life, even if he is walking.
How about Ana I. Gardiner. Who better than to represent Broward Co.
Sounds like backscratching to me. Weird.
Maybe someday they’ll name the whole courthouse after me….

Is this real?
This’s silly even by Broward standards.
There are no standards in Broward
I think they should have a Tooty Trophy for the most useless Chief Judge in Broward County history.
I’m sure this schmo would get a thrill out of it.
IM READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP MR. DeMILLE
Surprised?Today they banned Critical Race Theory AND diversity in Bar seminars.It’s in the newspaper.
This type of insensitivity is to be expected.

Judge Diaz must be green with envy. He loves trophies etc.
Finally I get recognition for all the good i bring to this county
TUTER HAS NEVER BEEN ANYTHING BUT A SCHERER MOLE
I thought it was supposed to be named after Bill Scherer’s dog.
WHAT ABOUT AN AWARD FOR THE MOST COGNITIVELY CHALLENGED BOOB ON THE BROWARD BENCH
Broward never fails to entertain. A courtroom to honor tootie!?!?!?
THE BROWARD JUDICIARY HAS REALLY BECOME A RACE TO THE BOTTOM
Maybe they feel like he needs propping up because he’s always criticized here and in the real world?
A COMMEMORATIVE COURTROOM IS BETTER THAN NOTHING
NOT THAT IVE EVER SPENT MUCH TIME IN ONE
Much more appropriate to name and empty, useless, closet for him.
WHERE’S MY RECOGNITION
This man is most unremarkable. To skirt the rules and make an exception for the patently unexceptional makes a precedent to be avoided. The bar is low enough already.
What’s the other option? Weinstein court room?
DCA Carole Taylor, BobbY gunther, Polen. May or Damoorgian.
District Cohn, Demetrioulaes, Singhal.
Broward Fogan (started Drug Court)/L Wren (MH Court national leader)/Miette B (1st woman Chief)/Finkelstein (MH/Recovery/TV personality)/Shailer/Satz.
It shouldn’t be named for the living at all. But if it is to be there are many who have distinguished themselves above and beyond Judge Tuter.
Don’t forget that Pryor and Weekes are the first elected African-Americans to bigger jobs than the chief judgeship. They should be considered as well. Sheriff Tony for that matter too.
PROPOSITION DEAD ON ARRIVAL – LAUGHABLE
TUTER HAS SERVED ONLY AS THE HEAD CLOWN OF A CIRCUIT KNOWN FOR ITS DEPLORABLE JUDICIAL ANTICS AS REFLECTED BY THE NUMBER OF JUDGES DISCIPLINED BY THE JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION.
THE 17TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT REMAINS THE LAUGHINGSTOCK OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA UNDER A CHIEF JUDGE EQUALITY AS LAUGHABLE
Limahl from Kajagoogoo.
Way to go Jack all I ever got was this shard of glass and I was a State Senator too
NOBODY EVER SUGGESTED NAMING A COURTROOM AFTER ME
Another useless PR stunt. When are we going to get definitive date for the opening of the Courthouse. When are we going to see the plan?
STRENGTH COMES FROM RESOLVE
TUTER HAS EXHIBITED NEITHER
If CJ Tuter spent as much time concerning himself with doing his job as he does slapping himself on the back, we would have a much more efficient judiciary.
