FABER TAKES OFF THE GLOVES

WEB SITE ATTACKS JUDGE HERNANDEZ AND JUAN D'ARCE

JUAN D’ARCE ALLEGED TO HAVE FIRED BACK.

D’ARCE THREATENS LAWSUIT
AGAINST http://WWW.OPERATIONRESTOREJUSTICE.COM

D’ARCE “THREATS” MISSING SUBJECTS, NOUNS, VERBS AND PUNCTUATION . COLLEGE DEGREE QUESTIONED?


DRAMATIS PERSONAE:

Judge Ivan Hernandez. Vietnam Veteran. County Court Judge. Elected to replace a County Court Judge who got into a bit o’ hot water when he stopped to give a fetching young woman a ride home from work. Pit-Bull Janie Weintraub tore up the prosecution at the Judge’s trial for soliciting a prostitute, but the former Judge didn’t have the same luck at the polls.


(Trivia bonus question : Which DUI hot-shot also ran in that race but finished 3rd? )

Suspended JA Juan D’Arce. Needs no introduction to the careful readers of this blog.

APD Robin Faber. Public Defender in the Juvenile Division. Running against Judge Hernandez on the slogan “when honesty matters.”

operationrestorejustice.com: A Pro-Faber, anti-Henandez, anti-Juan D’Arce web site.


This web site has been posted on the comments section of our fair blog previously. One day, when our alcohol levels were sinking to dangerously low levels, we opened a bottle of Chateau Miami River and perused the blog and clicked on the link.

Lo- n- behold , we found a very entertaining web site, making the allegation that one Juan D’Arce had been visiting and sent them a threatening email.

Click here for the email: http://operationrestorejustice.com/Juan%20threatens%20to%20sue%20ORJ%20June%207%202006.pdf


Here is the text sent from a “Juan”: “When I sue you you won’t think it is so funny to slander So you want down and dirty and not nice. Good.”

Rumpole’s first thought was, for goodness sake, somebody give that guy a few punctuation marks. Loan him a period and a question mark, will ya?

Second thought: For all of D’Arce’s self-promoted legal skills, didn’t we all learn in law school that slander is said and libel is written?

Finally, the big kahunna of a question: Is Mr. Faber behind “Operation Restore Justice?”

Just when was this “operation” formed?
Will the “operation” be conducting any incursions into South Dade or Calle Ocho?
Does the "operation" have any operatives?

What “justice” has Judge Hernandez taken away that needs to be restored?

As we have opined repeatedly, the worst that can be said about Judge Hernandez is that his made a bad decision to hire someone and made a worse (but understandable) decision to stand by his JA? Doesn’t loyalty count for anything?

Who will Juan D’Arce be suing? Will long lost former “gun pointing on the bench” Judge Henry Ferro make the trek down from the wilds of Central Florida to file this barn-burner of a lawsuit?

Does anybody know?
Does anybody care?
(See how those question marks are placed Mr. D’Arce?
Try some punctuation. It’s fun.)

Only in Miami folks. That’s why we live and work here.

See You In Court scouting for the operation restore justice operatives.

Rump,

You ask: Does the "operation" have any operatives?

I reckon by definition an operation must have operatives. It if didn't have operatives, who, pray tell, would carry out the operations?

WHat say you?

Who was the judge that Hernandez replaced? I totally forgot!

I'm an operative....unfortunately I'm a post operative. Anybody want to drag?

Deepthroat said...

I have it on good info that Mr. Faber has nothing to do with this "operation". without revealing my sources, the person behind this movement to unshackle truth is someone who is not a candidate nor are they representing one to my knowledge. Although it would appear that this person has an agenda, don't we all, I do not believe it revolves around Mr. Faber. I am sure more will be forthcoming.

The trail to D'Arce for Alvarez is strong - Judge Miller is at South Dade Government Center - D'Arce offered his services to her on several occasions - she fits the pattern of his "target" - regardless of who is "doing" his campaign - recruitment is also a D'arce style - and he comes from the same background as all of D'arce's recruitments. His fingerprnts are all over this - and he is actively campaigning in Alvarez's behalf as is the Hernandez "team."

Rumpole said...

The County Court Judge beaten by Hernandez was Reggie "hop in" Richardson. The DUI hot shot who was third (and paid 2.25 to show) was Jimbo Best.

Rumpole's considerable sources indicate that Candidate Jorge Alvarez has nothing to do with D'Arce. Although the circumstantial evidence cited above appears strong, Alvarez is on his own in this campaign, standing in Malls, handing out pamphlets.

A better Alvarez rumor is which current burly county court judge snarled at Alvarez at a function when he learned Alvarez was running against Browyn Katherine Miller?

Robin Faber is a loser. Why doesn't he focus only on Judge Ivan Hernandez? Who the hell cares about Juan de Arce? Robin Faber obviously realizes that there's no way to attack Ivan himself so he's got to look at his JA. That's ridiculous!Anyone who has to attack someone other than the candidate himself is obviously running scared! There's a moment in every single campaign that makes you win or lose. Robin, by creating that website, you just lost. Loser. My advice to every single candidate: focus only on your opponent. Don't focus on JA's, on spouses, or on staff. Once you do this, you demonstrate to the world that you're so scared of losing that you resort to the drastic and to the despicable. Robin is a loser and any candidate who follows a similar route is a loser too. Robin, you just lost your campaign.

Robin Faber is a second (or third, or fourth, who knows?) choice for those who want Hernandez out. Hector Lombana tried to convince Gloria Gonzalez-Meyer to leave Judge Samuels' race and switch to run against Judge Hernandez. After she turned him down, Robin Faber came into the race.

A Miami defense attorney ended up on the wrong side of the bars Thursday after he was charged with taking marijuana into a county jail.

Attorney John Lipinski, 58, and inmate Andrew Rahmings, 21, each face two felony charges: introduction of marijuana to a county jail and possession of marijuana.

Miami-Dade police say Lipinski visited Rahmings about noon Thursday at the Miami-Dade Pre-Trial Detention Center downtown. The reason for the visit is unknown.

Investigators say Lipinski is not Rahmings' attorney.

When Rahmings left the interview room, he had three yellow envelopes in his possession.

Jail officials searched the envelopes before returning Rahmings to his cell and found about 40 grams of marijuana in two of the envelopes.

''It is obvious when you grab the envelopes that there is something inside,'' the arrest report reads.

After realizing that Rahmings had left the interview room after meeting with the attorney, guards stopped Lipinski.

Lipinski told Miami-Dade police he had gotten a call from an acquaintance of Rahmings, who wanted a meeting.

They met at an IHOP in Hollywood, where the acquaintance gave Lipinski the envelopes, saying he wanted Rahmings to write him, Lipinski said.

Rahmings told a different story -- he denied knowing the man Lipinski met, according to the report.

Lipinski was booked into the Miami-Dade Pre-Trial Detention Center.

Each of the charges carries a $5,000 bail, said Janelle Hall, spokeswoman for the Miami-Dade Corrections Department.

Rahmings has been at the jail since December 2004, awaiting trial on two armed-robbery cases.

OPERATION LAND BARRON ANNOUNCED

Does anybody know anything about a new Federal Sting operation called LANDBARRON that the US attorney announced today? Rumour has it that a high-profile local attorney is very concerned.

Anonymous said...

To: 6:55:44 AM

Judges KMF and AMP do indeed have nice signs up along I-95. To the question of the legality, the controling state law is below, specifically look at Section 104.071(1)(c). Since they each have separate leases with the landlord, ordered their banners separately, and installed them separately I believe that they are 100% legal. Recently the Florida Elections Commission handed down findings with reference to municipal elections in Surfside. In that case the candidates contributed each a portion of the total cost to produce yard signs that they shared. As I stated with respect to the banners on I-95 they are independant from one another.

ELECTORS AND ELECTIONS ELECTION CODE: VIOLATIONS; PENALTIES

104.071 Remuneration by candidate for services, support, etc.; penalty.--

(1) It is unlawful for any person supporting a candidate, or for any candidate, in order to aid or promote the nomination or election of such candidate in any election, directly or indirectly to:

(a) Promise to appoint another person, promise to secure or aid in securing appointment, nomination or election of another person to any public or private position, or to any position of honor, trust, or emolument, except one who has publicly announced or defined what his or her choice or purpose in relation to any election in which he or she may be called to take part, if elected.

(b) Give, or promise to give, pay, or loan, any money or other thing of value to the owner, editor, publisher, or agent, of any communication media, as well as newspapers, to advocate or oppose, through such media, any candidate for nomination in any election or any candidate for election, and no such owner, editor, or agent shall give, solicit, or accept such payment or reward. It shall likewise be unlawful for any owner, editor, publisher, or agent of any poll-taking or poll-publishing concern to advocate or oppose through such poll any candidate for nomination in any election or any candidate for election in return for the giving or promising to give, pay, or loan any money or other thing of value to said owner, editor, publisher, or agent of any poll-taking or poll-publishing concern.

(c) Give, pay, expend, or contribute any money or thing of value for the furtherance of the candidacy of any other candidate.

(d) Furnish, give, or deliver to another person any money or other thing of value for any purpose prohibited by the election laws.

This subsection shall not prohibit a candidate from furnishing complimentary tickets to the candidate's campaign fund raiser to other candidates.

(2) A candidate may give his or her own personal or business funds to another candidate, so long as the contribution is not given in exchange for a promise or expectation that the recipient will directly or indirectly do anything to aid or promote the candidacy of the contributor which the recipient would not have otherwise done.

(3) Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083, and from and after conviction shall be disqualified to hold office.

I was mentioned at 1:46:16 AM. Just because campaigns contract with the same political consultant, in this case Charlie Safdie, does not mean that they are all working together. In addition my name was brought up in the past because I was Judge Pando's bailiff in an attempt to justify Mr. D'Arce's activities. The difference was that I resigned about a year ago in order to run and campaign without the perception of impropriety.

It is clear that Mr. Robin Faber is behind this shameful website which is a morbid attempt to promote himself. After listening to his audio statement given to the Miami Herald, it is clear that this same approach is utilized on the site. He is endorsing himself. Incredible! (By the way, the man cannot spell.)

It is unfortunate that this Public Defender is showing us what type of judge he would be if elected: He would jump to conclusions without giving the Defense an opportunity to present a case. Here, he jumps to conclusions without knowing the facts, and uses dirty tactics. I would be afraid to appear before Mr. Robin Faber. Per his own web site, rumors suffice and are the foundation of his campaign. As a Judge, he would find someone guilty off hearsay. Following this approach, we can only begin to imagine how he would rewrite the hearsay rule.

The Banana Republic of Faber.

I have to state the following: For some strange reason there are one or two individuals who just love to pick on Judge Hernandez. If you hate the man so much, spare us and tell him to his face. Enough is enough already. I think we can all agree that all the comments on Hernandez are getting old and petty. (Id. Mr. Faber)

Tell you what tough guy/gal, call Judge Hernandez, make an appointment and kick his butt; or tell him what you think to his face, and let us know what happens. Since the man was in a war, I am sure he will let you know what he thinks of your whining. Maybe you should embrace the cruel reality that you have the right to freedom of expression thanks to men like him. Until then, get a life you dead beat!

There are plenty of people who don't like Judge Hernandez. And critically, it's not because of his rulings or in court persona. Rather, Hernandez' albatross is D'Arce. Specifically, why on God's green earth would a respectable judge hire and stand-by a political hack?

Hernandez is supposed to avoid the APPEARANCE of impropriety. Instead, he has embraced, by his silence and refusal to fire D'Arce, the controversial idea that paid judicial consultants may work for Judges so long as they confine their paid attacks on sitting judges to "off-hours." That's ridiculous.

Hernandez, like any commanding officer, is responsible for the actions of his men. He needs to own up to D'Arce's actions, fire him, apologize, and move on.

Anonymous said...

wow that last post said it all and I agree!!

Anonymous said...

Many judges are not liked. Who cares?

If there is a rule against the judiciary and campaigns, please post it so that Hernandez can see it. If you just happen to not like the fact that sitting Judges are getting knocked-off, then that is a different story and remains your opinion. D’Arce’s participation in campaigns, is equivalent to:

1. Jackie Scola running on the same year as her husband- Robert Scola (A planned abusive tactic that helped her raise tons of money as attorneys were scared and forced to donate, and get no opposition).
2. The duo of Judge Larry and Caryn Schwartz getting to the bench at the same time.
3. Judge Ivan Fernandez running on Hernandez’s last name the year after Hernandez gets elected.
4. Judge Bertila Soto and her father, Osvaldo Soto, pushing their agenda as well as candidates. If they like you, you get support; if not, you get opposition. (I saw him working on Glazer’s campaign to keep her on the Bench).
5. JNC Member Hector Lombada working on campaigns, donating and consulting while he may have the power to nominate the same people of influence there appointment in the future.

Fact is all politicians do it. We have seen President Bush and Jeb do in the past. It’s politics. Let us remember that the canons cover family and candidates, not staffers on their own time.

Case on point: School Board Member Frank Cobo was ousted by the majority of the other School Board Members who actually endorsed, campaigned and even worked precincts on election day to get Cobo out. The people who should be answering questions here are the ones that paid for the consulting or got it for free. I am sure you do not think that Hernandez was depositing the checks? Inspect the different campaign expenditure reports and you will find that many staffers also get paid (Look at Vera) and some do it for free (Look at Laura) as well. Paid or not, it is the same stupid thing. Additionally, since there is an ongoing investigation, he should remain silent until it is complete. Fact is, some judges lost, but new ones won. If you have a problem with it, it is probably because you have something to lose. Are you a Judge that is mad because now you have to actually work to keep your job?

Editorial in Miami Times - Black Judges Should Know Better

Here we go again. Another Black judge is facing opposition from a Hispanic
who understands the power of a name. Anything goes in Miami elections, so
this common ploy is not surprising.

What is surprising is that Black judges have not learned better. The Black
community should not only hear from Black judges at election time. They
should know their faces and hear about their agendas way before they are faced
with deciding whether to keep them on the bench or not.

Blacks' disproportionate representation in all aspects of the court system -
from dependency to criminal - make it imperative to elect qualified Black
judges who are committed to the fair and equitable distribution of justice.

Ideally, voters should be responsible for obtaining the information they
need to make good decisions. Realisticall, everyone knows how seldom that
happens.

Most voters actually want to have the information they need to determine who
the better candidate is, they just do not want to have to get it for
themselves. Once elected, Black judges must do more to retain their seats.

Judges must be careful about taking a public stand on legal issues; however,
they can promote their accomplishments and share with voters who they are
and why they should be allowed to serve.

This is not to say that simply because a judge is Black that they should get
a free pass from the Black community. Votes should be checking out how all
judges rule and determine which jurists are committed to the fair and equitable
distribution of justice. As late writer Zora Neale Hurston said "all our
skin folk ain't our kin folks." We need only to look at Supreme Court Justice
Clarence Thomas for evidence to support her theory."

Where have all the Black activists gone?
March 12- March 18. Volume 80, Number 27, Pg 1A
By Jason T. Smith Times Writer
A brief survey of local grassroots activist groups suggests that the level of activism in the Black community is indeed down from decades ago, but there still exists a fervent core of activists who are attempting to shake up the powers that be and reshape the political community in the interest of the common person. According to leaders of local civil rights groups, the number of citizens participating in demonstrations fluctuates depending on the issue. And the overall zeal for activism is down, in part because of past successes of the civil rights movement and the relative latency of racism today as compared to the 1960s.

The political structure of northeast Miami-Dade County is changing, and the person who started the ball rolling in 1993 is continuing to bring about change in his newly adopted city of North Miami Beach. Local politicians began to sit up and take notice last week when Philippe Derose won his runoff election against John Julien to become North Miami Beach’s first Haitian-American council member. In 1993 Derose was the first Haitian-American elected to office in the United States when he won a seat on the El Portal village council. Eventually, he became vice mayor and then mayor of the village.

Those that were there at the Judicial Forum this weekend in Miami Gardens heard Judge Hernandez state he had no knowledge that Juan was consulting for judicial candidates and was one of the best JA's ever. He's not only a dupe, he's a liar.

After seeing the video, you begin to see the problem when a judicial employee who controls access to the court engages in favoritism. This man couldn't get a hearing which has been a continual complaint against D'Arce on top of the ethnic and racial slurs he is accused of. When he engages in running judicial campaigns he adds another more frightening dimension to it..how would you like to be a litigant represented by an attorney who opposes one of his candidates when he controls access to the docket? There's a good reason the ethical rules say a judge should uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary and shall avoid impropriety in all his activities. Those same rules say he cannot lend the prestige of judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others. "Others" include your JA, Ivan, you're the captain of the ship. And if you didn't know it while it was happening under your nose then you really do deserve to lose. I'm voting for Faber.

You must be a great lawyer to come up with that analysis since the 3rd DCA ruled against the guy. Are you on the wheel or something? I suggest you research the case.

Seems that the argument made on the video was about DV reform.

Anonymous said...

so instead of making a point you call him a slur "fat boy". But thats Hernandez and D'Arce style, given D'Arce made anti-semintic slurs against the administartive judges.

Just because someone exposes the truth or lack thereof sould not make him subject to slurs.

GROW UP!! stick to the facts like the herald has.

PS. The miami new times story show judge wells was in opposition to that guy, and low-n-b-hold she is now in the 3dca , but sure that has no affect on the guys recent appeals against judge hernandez??

I may still vote for Judge Cohen...

He is consumed by his sister's life and death and by the disdain he feels for those whom he says contributed to her untimely passing. Few other thoughts, it seems, cross his mind. His world is a lonely one. He relies on public transportation and recently moved in with a friend “from the music business” because he couldn't afford to pay his rent. He hasn't been working since 1997 and says he gets by on royalties from some of the Menudo music he owns, which mostly sells in Latin-American countries.

McGillis also faces many accusations. The state's welfare agency and juvenile court considers him a harasser and manipulator. A few days after Wendolyn died, McGillis videotaped her children answering questions about what transpired before their mother's death. The DCF claims McGillis brainwashed the kids into believing Benge killed their mother. McGillis denies the allegations. He's jammed up many fax machines. During a hearing in October 1999, Judge Jeri Cohen complained about it. “You are not to fax me anything else,” Cohen ordered. “If you have something. I'm warning you not to do it. Let me tell you something, Mr. McGillis. Look at me. That fax machine is my fax machine. I pay for all the ribbons in that, and since you have started faxing me information my bills -- and I'll call my secretary in here -- have gone up. It's costing me $85 a month in ribbons because of all the junk you've sent me.”

According to DCF's district administrator Charles Auslander, McGillis had harassed attorney Lucy Piniero by calling her office 50 times in a row. Judge Cohen entered an order prohibiting him from communicating with anyone from the Department of Children and Families, particularly Piniero. McGillis appealed. “Well, you know the problem with that was that maybe he only called 40 times,” says E. Joseph Ryan, Jr., an appeals expert who represented McGillis in the Third District Court of Appeal. “It sounded like a fantasy.” Once police even dragged him out of the Juvenile Justice Center in handcuffs because he wouldn't leave Piniero's office until he spoke to her. McGillis was charged with trespassing even though he was in a public building during business hours.

While McGillis clearly has crossed lines, those opposing him have as well. Judge Cohen has questioned his sanity: “Darrin is mentally ill.... You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that he's got severe psychological problems,” she said during a hearing in April 1999.

Don't you get it? The fat guy is D. McGillis who Faber met at juvi court when he was before Judge Cohen when he was trying to gain custody of his sister's kids. They are now working together in a smear campaign.

They are working with Faber to oust Hernandez. I guess Faber picked him because McGillis has sued everyone: His mother, DCF, (his) lawyers, The New Times and maybe the Blog/Rumpole is next or maybe you or me or both! Poor Judge Cohen had to recuse herself from his case as she was scared of him and his constant calling, faxing and visits to her Court. He is not that smart, but be cautious.

COUNTY COURT

'SUPER GLUE' CASE NOW TIED TO POLITICS

It all started with Super Glue in Darrin McGillis' lock.

Then came a small-claims suit, a countersuit, appellate briefs, Supreme Court arguments, motions upon

motions upon motions, including some that McGillis acknowledges were deemed frivolous by the courts. By the time it was all over, and it actually isn't, really, the glue and the lock didn't matter anymore. The fight was about the technicalities of the law and what's fair and what's legal and what argument McGillis could think up to fight with.

Now the one-time concert promoter has taken his fight to the political arena, setting up a website to try to unseat the judge who first heard the Super Glue case.

Operationrestorejus

tice.com is causing a bit of a buzz in courthouse circles for its out-of-nowhere quality. The website reprints a Miami Herald article about the race between candidate Robin Faber and Judge Ivan Hernandez, and endorses Faber. Faber says he knows nothing about McGillis. Hernandez couldn't be reached.

The funny thing? McGillis, 39, of Miami says he won his suits. The man who he claimed put Super Glue in his door lock paid for it. And the domestic-violence suit that man filed against McGillis was dropped.

McGillis just thinks Hernandez should have awarded him money to cover the costs of the suits.

The Florida Supreme Court declined to hear the case and the Third District Court of Appeals has sanctioned McGillis. He has, of course, appealed that to the Florida Supreme Court. In the meantime, McGillis is vowing to update the website twice a day with news about the judicial races.

Mr. Robin (the eternal PD without trying a case) Faber met Darrin McGilllis at Juvi Court when the man was doing the TPR case for his sister's children. This fact cannot be refuted. McGilllis was in Juvi all the time and Faber met him there. Now, they have joined forces. One caveat though! Faber never thought McGilllis would get so out of hand as he has and now he is trying to break away. It will not be easy though. McGilllis will end up suing Faber as well for "Breach of Specific Performance" for selling him out. Go figure.

Come on, who would try to discredit McGillis or call him "KooKo, unstable, manic, etc.."? I think I know, the Judges office & friends posting anonymously and cowardly. Who else would become a player in this game. Personally, it's a shame to know this people work for us and do this kind of things. McGillis is a private citizen (not running for public office) who is simply seeking justice denied to him by an unfair judgement. Isn't such our right, but they want to silence him by making him look bad. And as for the insults posted here, I think standing up against the powerfull and connected is very brave, not crazy so where did you get your psych degree, Burger King University? By the way, I hope you are not doing this from your office, on our time and money, so get back to work.

Actually, I have met him. While most of us take the the flaws in the system and accept the loss, Mr. McGillis refuses to be victimized by it's shortcommings. The issue with DCF was based on his concern about the wellbeing of his orfan nefews. He took the trouble to help them and took on the system. While most of us walk away when we are pushed, sometimes some people do not and I guess you are not used to that at DCF or at the courthouse. I consider Mr. McGillis a great friend, and know him as a person who always helps others selflessly. He wouldn't be involved if it wasn't to fight a true injustice, which he does very well by the way. There is nothing for him to personally gain other than to live in a better country. Which of us would take that trouble?

the ruke changed in 2002 and the appellant courts must write a opinion when requested by a litigant in a rehearing motion. perhaps rehearing will be denied but a opinion will come out of the request for one.

with out a opinion he has to go straight to the United States Supreme Court with a opinion he can seek conflict review in the florida supreme court (although those are rarely accepted).

PCA's are just a denial of due process and lazy appellant judges.

MIAMI HERALD

Posted on Sat, June. 10, 2006

JUDGE ACCUSED OF CAMPAIGN VIOLATIONS

A complaint has been filed against Juan F. Gonzalez with the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission and the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission alleging he committed campaign violations in his race against County Judge Steve Leifman.

The complaint, filed by Leifman's campaign co-chair David Marko, says that Gonzalez's statement to The Miami Herald that Leifman didn't work full-time violates the state's Judicial Cannon of Ethics.

''The suggestion is that Judge Leifman is misusing his position on the bench,'' Marko wrote in the complaint. He then went on to list the various duties Leifman has as associate administrative judge in county court, as well as Leifman's work on the court's mental health commission.

The complaint also claims that Gonzalez told the audience at a campaign forum that he worked ''under'' Public Defender Bennett Brummer for 10 years, though he has never worked in the Public Defender's Office.

Gonzalez could not be reached for comment.

I know that is so wrong. Leifman works hard charging excesive fines and telling police officers what to do as well as setting aside B/W for Joe Klock on an Ex-parte basis. (Check the files.)

If mental health is so important, why is there no Division. There must be over 1,000 defendants that could have benefited from such services. Is it all talk only?

NEW ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JUDICIAL AIDE
JOAN FLEISCHMAN, jfleischman@MiamiHerald.com

Another complaint against Juan F. D'Arce Jr., judicial assistant to Miami-Dade County Judge Ivan Hernandez. Criminal defense attorney Philip Reizenstein says D'Arce refused Wednesday to schedule a court matter for a client.

Reizenstein says there's a story behind that story: D'Arce, he says, displayed ``inappropriate'' behavior by showing up at his house Feb. 26 - uninvited on a Sunday - demanding to speak to him. Reizenstein's wife and law partner, Jacqueline Woodward, talked to D'Arce but did not let him in.
Reizenstein says D'Arce was upset that he hadn't returned two phone calls. Reizenstein, furious about the surprise visit, called D'Arce at the courthouse the next day and chewed him out.

D'Arce says Reizenstein threatened him, saying: ``Look, m--- f---, if you ever come to my house, I'm going to put a bullet in your head and drag you out in a body bag.'' That, D'Arce says, is why he didn't calendar Reizenstein's motion. ``I'm fearful of my life.''

Reizenstein, 43, denies threatening him. ``I chose my words carefully.'' He says he warned D'Arce that if he ``came to my house again I would take it as a threat and I would defend my family.''

Reizenstein says D'Arce has no right to refuse to calendar a case. ``I don't know what makes this judicial assistant think he can interfere with the administration of justice. I don't care if he doesn't like me. This guy is a self-appointed king.''

D'Arce, 34, is under investigation for allegedly running a consulting business on court time, and using bullying tactics to solicit clients. Prosecutors have seized D'Arce's courthouse computer.

Reizenstein sent a three-page letter to Chief Judge Joseph Farina. He mentions D'Arce's house call but says: ``Mr. D'Arce's interference with a Florida citizen's access to the courts . . . is the subject of my complaint.''

D'Arce says he went to Reizenstein's home to talk about who is authoring an anonymous blog on courthouse goings-on (justice

building.blogspot.com).

Says D'Arce: ``I kept on hearing rumors that people thought I was writing that stupid blog.'' He says some people told him they suspect Reizenstein is the blogger. ``I just wanted to ask him if he knew who the blog[ger] was.''

D'Arce also says he thought he and Reizenstein were friends. Says Reizenstein: ``I'd have a hard time picking him out of a lineup.''

Reizenstein says he doesn't know or care about the identity of the blogger, who

goes by the nom de plume ``Rumpole.'' Reizenstein says he did not return D'Arce's calls because he was in a first-degree murder trial, and that when D'Arce showed up at his house, he was napping, as was his 11-month-old son.

D'Arce says Hernandez's bailiff, Josh Estevez, heard Reizenstein's alleged threat via speakerphone. ``I told Juan to file a police report,'' Estevez says. D'Arce did not: ``I don't want to ruin his legal career.''

This is very funny. I read all of these archaic as well as inflammatory posts and now I see the truth. Judge Hernandez and Juan were Guinea Pigs to save the ass of Judge Leifman who was all to scare to lose yet another election, Judge Slom who knew how dislike his service to the traffic division has been, Robin Faber who is a terrible lawyer and now Judge and Darrin McGillis who is vindictive against any person or politician who goes or rules against him.

Operation Restore Justice was surely used by Faber, Slom and Leifman to attack Judge Hernandez and Juan. Though, Fernandez-Rundle and Alex Acosta were to afraid to bust this corruption circle wide-open as it would have taken down the majority of the judiciary.

Voters need to be more vigilant of corrupted judges and people who manipulate the system to push illegal investigations, agendas and harm good patriots. Truth be told, history clears all questions and shows true intentions. For all the allegations and accusations, nothing ever happened. Why? Abuse of the system. The Miami Herald should be ashamed of its participation in this sad moment in judicial election history.
