ORANGE










We want to know what bright bureaucrat at the Jail decided to order the orange jumpsuits for all of the Dade County inmates awaiting trial.

This is Miami folks. We try and do things with style, so when we screw up in the national spotlight (riots, election fraud, you know the drill) we at least look cool.

You can't walk down Ocean Drive without bumping into a wannabe clothing designer.
We are sure one of those aspiring Calvin Kleins would have donated their time for some free publicity.

How about the Dolphins teal, orange, and black? Cuffs trimmed in white.?

Something other than these bright orange blobs.

Don’t be surprised if the next time you saunter through the REGJB on your rounds if you see a surprising number of our judiciary peering at you behind a pair of sunglasses. And not because of a hangover (giving them the benefit of the doubt).


For once, you dear robed readers have our sympathy. (Quick, look outside. Is there a blue moon?) You are the ones who have to deal with that bright orange glare all day (ok- the two hours a day that you work). And it’s not as if our robed readers need any more distractions when trying to work their way through a tough two page arraignment calendar.

This is the Dade County Jail we are talking about. Somewhere, if some enterprising prosecutor pokes around, is an orange coloured scandal just waiting to be uncovered.

REGJB TRIVIA

Congratulations to Assistant Public Defender David Sisselman who was the winner of the last trivia contest. Sisselman was the only one who emailed us that quick draw Henry Ferro was the attorney who beat Ted Mastos and that Ferro then resigned from the bench after he pointed a gun at a juvenile defendant accused of armed robbery and asked him how it felt.
Displaying the kind of street smarts and common sense our judiciary is known for around the world, , Ferro saw fit to assault the defendant in front of his family members including Georgia Ayers. For those of you new to Miami, Ms. Ayers was about as powerful a community activist as we have seen in these parts.

These days one can find quick draw Ferro holed up in his home in the swamps of middle Florida, emerging mole like to verbally assault our State Attorney when certain former judicial assistants are bright enough to hire the wise Mr. Ferro to defend them from impending criminal charges.

5) What former Judge was a paratrooper in the Korean conflict?

No really sure why that corruption post was directed toward Hernandez? Are you making allegations that his judicial decisions were somehow compromised by allowing a questionable JA to remain on the job? What 'deal' influenced any of his rulings? Get over this already. It's obvious you don't like his JA. There's now a political organization that was titled for situations like this. It's called MOVE ON. Get on with your own life and stop worrying about theirs..

7) is wrong because neither of the scolas were chief of county court.

8) the reason why they named tennis courts after him is also wrong.

9) bonus question is wrong. and swickle was acquitted as well.

Dear 4:37 poster: There must be more than one Stu Mishkin. My only recollection of a case with Stu was his impassioned plea for 'any deal' so that he would not have to go to trial. It may have been the quality of the evidence, but who can tell? The name Mishkin never caused fear at the A.S.A. level that you suggest it might have. Nice enough guy, but no Jack Denaro.

You people have no idea: from a web search, an excerpt from a law web site on a big civil matter mishkin was brought in to handle:


“But the court's finding mirrors the arguments of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom of counsel attorney, Miami lawyer Stuart R. Mishkin, who represented the PGA. His client wasn't trying to control information, he said. It was simply trying to keep Morris from taking information the PGA spends a lot of money to compile and disseminate for free to the media, and then turning around and selling it to third parties without the PGA's permission.”

I'm an ex-pd, and while I would not put mishkin in the roy black /jack denaro category, nor would I say he is as bad as some are saying. maybe he's a little less aggressive with age, but we planned to go to trial together, he was great with strategy and legal research and writing motions, not so go at depos (seemed bored) and was raring to try the case, but won it on motions. You can't argue with success.

I actually know many of these guys:

1. Howard "Mousey" Gross. Now working on South Beach and drives a Harley.
2. Ellen Maximum Morphonios. She died a few years ago. Ran a fun court. No pleas from the bench. You took the state deal or went to trial.
3. Al Sepe. Still alive. Was a county court judge, then, got in big trouble... and all of a sudden the gov makes him a Circuit Court Judge. Was arrested in CourtBroom. Hung jury, took plea deal to very small prision sentence. Is now home alone.
4. I do not think any of the judges were acquitted in courtbroom.
5. Had to be Henry Oppenborn. He started court every day with the pledge of you know what... it was funny to see the non-english speakers stand there with their hands on their hearts and mumble...
6. I think Mench for the Bench was Alan Postman but, may have also been Harvey Baxter.
7. I can not remember either Scola being in charge of county court... so, I am not sure.
8. Arthur Snyder. Died recently. Ran a very funny court. If your client could pass a poly he would dismiss a murder case. He was mayor of NMB and later Aventura. He played tennis so, they named the court after him. I liked him.
9. a. Howard Gross and atty Swickle. Both were acquitted but, disbarred.
b. Broward judge was: Dale Ross???
c. Acquittal for both.
d. Trial held in Broward.

Funny how Richard Essen tells everyone he never lost a case???

to trivia at 5:43- one judge was acquitted-walked out the door and went home in courtbroom.

Correct on Snyder being the Mayor of NMB.

Rick Freedman said...

True Story:

I tried an Armed Robbery of a convenience store case in 1990. My client had something like 18 priors. The offer was Life. So, we tried it of course.

Defendant was found guilty and at sentencing, Judge Phil Davis said to the defendant, "the jury having found you guilty, you will be spending the rest of your life in prison."

The guy, Terry Coney, said to the judge, "Kiss my mother-fucking black ass."

Judge Davis shot back, "only if I'm in jail with you, Mr. Coney."

Shortly thereafter, Davis was arrested and in jail for the Operation CourtBroom case along with:

Harvey Shenberg
Alfonso Sepe
David Goodhart
Arthur Massey
William Castro
Arthur Luongo
Harry Boehme
Nancy Lechtner

I will never forget Mr. Coney's words and Judge Davis'comeback; truer words never spoken.

Philip Maniatty said...

2:21:20 a.m....your youth is showing! Courtbroom is the reason there is now a "wheel" for PCAC attorneys. Judges used to have complete control over appointing conflict attorneys. It was a form of patronage. A few judges were corrupt in their appointment process (taking kickbacks). There were also some much more serious forms of corruption exposed at that time (releasing the name of an informant in exchange for the payment of $ with the understanding that the informant would be physically harmed).A massive arrest warrant/search warrant mission was carried out one weekend in which judges were arrested and chambers searched. If my memory is correct, this fell on the same weekend as the SAO office picnic. I suppose the term "Courtbroom" was meant to denote a housecleaning to free the system of this corruption.

Operation Restore Justice is geared toward exposing corruption in the Florida Court system. The web site is here to expose the very rare cases in which a Judge or those under the Judge's control violate the publics trust.

The Supreme Court of Florida has set a path of rooting out judicial wrong doing at all levels. The Supreme Court has released numerous opinions over the past few years making it clear to the general public that it will not tolerate violations of the code of judicial conduct either by a sitting judge or a candidate for judge. Recently the Supreme Court of Florida removed a judge from office because of violations of the code of judicial conduct that happened during his judicial campaign to become a Florida Judge.

All citizens of Florida can be sure that our highest court will NOT tolerate violations of the Code of Judicial conduct at any level. Our supreme court is not shy in expressing its condemnation of any Judge who violates the public trust by not following the code of judicial conduct.

Operation Restore Justice is under the control of a private citizen. It was due to the criminal investigation presently against Judge Ivan Hernandez and his Judicial Assistant, by the Miami-Dade State Attorneys office which has resulted in the seizure of the Judges computer under a criminal subpoena, that Operation Restore Justice was born in early 2006. In addition to complaints from numerous litigants of being denied access to Judge Hernandez court and Racial slurs by his Judicial Assistant against the administrative Judge.

Florida has some of the best Judges in the world. We cannot let a handful of bad apples destroy the prestige of Florida's judicial system. The Supreme Court of Florida through its recent opinions has demonstrated that it will NOT tolerate judges who do not follow the code of judicial conduct.
