In Defense and Praise of BT

Because you don't charge for ad space on your blog...and with regard to the B.T. ISSUE. I like Brian. He is a hard working capable lawyer. However, he should take care when he injects his views about people in the press. He could have said to the reporter, off the record, I don't feel comfortable giving a quote because I hardly knew the guy. Perhaps that was the point which some of your fans were trying to make.
I thought BT was appointed by Leyte-Vidal guardian for Michael Hernandez - the kid from the junior high murder - he must have known him somewhat to make that appointment. I just re-read his comments to the herald - he said he was one of the best, and most respected judges? NOthing about being "friends with him"
I am somewhat amazed by the juvenile way some of you writers sound like on this blog. If I didn't know it was a legal blog, I would have thought it came from my daughter's elementary school.Anonymous continues to whine and complain about BT. Hey, Anonymous, when was the last time you volunteered for an organization that is dedicated to the criminal defense bar.Have you been a member of FACDL-Miami or FACDL Statewide. Have you been a Board of Director, have you been an Officer, have you been President, have you been a statewide legislative coordinator?Do you go to Tallahassee (I think on his own dime) and certainly on his own time to lobby state senate and house members on critical issues affecting our court system and, more importantly, affecting us as attorneys and, even more importantly, affecting our clients?I am not a particularly close friend of BT's, I have just seen him at work, and while his name and face may be in the paper and on TV every once in a while, it seems like he has earned every minute of the exposure he gets.It seems to me, anonymous, that you, like my elementary school daughter, (who whines because "Kathy" is the teacher's pet, and not her), ... you are nothing more than a jealous person in need of your own exposure.Here's my suggestion ... you want exposure .... then sign you name to your next blog.
oh christ, ENOUGH ABOUT BT!!!Some like him, some obviously hate him (some, just for telling the Herald Leyte Vidal was a great judge (go figure))The guy has his own blog - go over there and leave your fan and hate mail, lets talk about important stuff like who's filing for judge this week.
Rumpole says, its not like Mr. BT was alleged to have threatened a JA or anything.
Any feedback on having other bloggers join our ranks?
Any updates on Judges calling PD’s who reverse them on appeal at home?
Any new rulings from the County Court Judge who likes to do Circuit Court Motions?
Any thoughts on Judges who order drug tests at arraignment?
Any news items on the new circuit judge who doesn’t give his staff lunch (or dinner for that matter) and likes to tell people there’s a new sheriff in town?
This is what is on our mind. What’s on yours?
See You In Court.
