A STICKY SITUATION
OPERATION RESTORE JUSTICE UNSTUCK
Our favorite Herald scribe, Oh Susannah Nesmith (who recently promised to go to jail rather than reveal our identity [if we ever confided our identity in her as a source, which we have not] ) has “un stuck” the messy story around the website promoting the candidacy of APD Robin Faber.
The “sticky-wicket” was featured in a recent post on our humble blog. Operation restore justice is a web site with links to anti-Judge Ivan Hernandez and anti-Juan D’Arce stories in the Herald, DBR and other places. The website ends with a picture of Robin Faber and endorses his candidacy.
According to the article, the website is run by an unhappy litigant who appeared before Judge Ivan Hernandez in a “glue related” lawsuit that has wound its way up and down the appellate ladder to the Florida Supreme Court, and back, and may well be on its way back there again.
The website operator actually won his suit, but was a bit ‘un-stuck” when County Court Judge Ivan Hernandez did not award him costs of the litigation.
It appears Ivan Hernandez is “stuck” with this website for the time being.
And who said politics wasn’t all about money?
See you in court, where we always avoid glue-related litigation, with good reason.
