FUN WITH POLLS

FUN WITH POLLS


BLAKE NIPS ROSA RODRIGUEZ

No- Judge Blake is not biting his colleagues.

Stan Blake scored a small victory which is really a statistical tie, when out of 100 people voting, 26 said that they would like Judge Blake to be assigned to their case if they were arrested. Judge Rosa Rodriguez was second with 23 votes. Judges Ivan Fernandez and Luise Krieger Martin tied for third with twelve votes each.

Many judges wondered why they were not included in the poll. No real reason. These were the Judges that came to our Chateau Miami River altered mind during one late night when we were bored. Please do not feel slighted. Rumpole will get to you. With a 100 votes, this poll is closed.


BOTH JUDGE SCHWARTZS HAVE OPPOSITION BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT.

Our poll as to why Judges Larry and Sheldon Schwartz have opposition has a clear and surprising winner. 43 of 84 voters have said both Judges have opposition because they deserve it. Gender Politics (our vote) is second with 19 votes. Only one lonely voter said the Judges have opposition because their opponents have distinguished themselves in their legal career. Thus we can glean that while the voters are not necessarily impressed with the challengers, the prevailing sentiment is that anybody is better than these two Judges. Somehow, we find that kind of sad. This poll remains open.


JUDGES PUNISH DEFENDANTS FOR GOING TO TRIAL.

31 of 52 voters have declared that Judges punish defendants for going to trial and the Judges should be ashamed of themselves. 11 voters said Judges do not punish defendants extra for going to trial, and 10 voters agree that judges need to punish defendants for going to trial to keep the case load down. We thank those 10 JUDGES for participating in our poll. See, this site is fun and anonymous. We invite our robed readers to check in often. Probably during that third or fourth hour of voire dire is as good as time as any.

SY GAER JUMPS INTO THE LEAD.

10 of our first 14 voters believe SY GAER does a better job representing defendants than either PDs or court appointed attorneys. Depos schmepos. Go Sy Go,


See You In Court.

Why did you fail to address the Brummer poll? Was that intentional or just an oversight on your part? Rumpole are you feeling guilty??

Some musings re: Sheldon Schwartz

I had the distinct displeasure of wasting the entire morning before this blowhard who was covering for Judge Pozo this morning on the beach. My heart goes out to anybody and everybody (and there were many) who had to suffer through his calendar, listening to his nuggets of wisdom which fell to the earth like elephant turds at the circus For better or worse, the Haitian Gestapo made sure there were no weapons in the courtroom. If I had only known ahead of time, I would have brought a jug of Kool Aid and some Dixie cups. I'm convinced the only reason that the cops sitting in the jury box didn't suck on their semiautomatics was because they were too busy sleeping off the midnight shift. No, really, IT WAS THAT BAD. Somebody please tell me who is running against this schmuck so I can sign over my IRA.
