PETITION TO HONOR JUDGE CRESPO.

Sam I am wrote:

One may argue against a court-room dedication for Judge Crespo WITHOUT insulting Judge Crespo. As has been pointed out, we have lost many judges while they served. Why are we to honor Crespo but not Levine, Dakis, et al? Why are we to honor Crespo over those judges who served, retired and then died? Judge Crespo was a fine and honorable man, but so are a great many other judges who sit and have sat in Miami-Dade County over the past 100 years.


Judge Roberto M. Pineiro said...

Judge Lenny Glick has posted that Judge Scott Silverman, our official historian, has opined that it is the within the purview of our county commission to name a courtroom. If Judge Scotty says it, it must be right. As such, I have take the liberty of preparing a petition to be circulated in our community and sent to the commission.
I do this fully mindful of and obedient to Canon 4 of our Code of Judicial Conduct encouraging judges to Engage in Activities to Improve the Law, the Legal System, and the Aministration of Justice.

I do not, in any way, mean to denigrate fine jusrists and good friends such as Judges Henry Leyte-Vidal, Linda Dakis, Steve Levine or any of the other fine judges mentioned in the blog as deserving of recognition. I do this to celebrate and remember the life of one of us who was truly unique. I am the first to say: Though I've kidded you and berated you, by the living God that made you, you're a better man than I am, Manny Crespo.

The following petition can be signed in my chambers at the REGJB--602. Copies will be provided to all who wish to get others to sign. All signed petitions should be sent to my office for collection and forwarding to the commission:

Whereas: Judge Manny Crespo was a consummate public servant.
Whereas: Judge Manny Crespo strove on a daily basis to provide our community with fair and equal justice for all.
Whereas: Judge Manny Crespo has raised the bar of public service by devoting so much of his “work” time and his “free” time to assure our community that equality, fairness and justice are not simply cherished, nebulous concepts, but a reality to which we can aspire.
Whereas: Judge Manny Crespo should serve as an example to us all, but especially to those of us who labor in our courts.
We the undersigned, most respectfully, request the Miami-Dade County Commission name a courtroom in the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building the Judge Manny Crespo Memorial Courtroom.
The courtroom to be so named shall be designated by the Chief Judge of the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida.

Judge Pineiro's heart may be in the right place, but his petition drive certainly violates Canon 5, which prohibits using the office of judge to conduct solicitations, whether for funds, membership, or any other purpose. Every lawyer who appears before the good judge will wonder if failure to enter chambers to sign the petition will have adverse consequences for the lawyer or client. This is precisely the type of judicial coercion that Canon 5 prohibits. If the name-a-courtroom-for-Crespo idea has merit, it will have community support without lobbying by judges. And if it does not have that kind of community support, it is not entitled to impermissible lobbying by the judiciary. At the very least, Judge P should seek an Advisory Opinion before undertaking such questionable activity.


Judge Roberto M. Pineiro said...
In response to 3:17:36 PM. You are absolutely right. It never occured to me that someone might be concerned that failing to sign the petition would incur my animosity--for the simple reason that it never would as this has nothing to do with any case. What is personal should always stay personal.

However, I should always shy away from the appearance of impropriety so I thank-you for you advice and will follow it. However much I would like to assume an active role in the promotion of a memorial, I will simply sign the petition and turn it over to anyone who wishes to be responsible for distribution, collection and forwarding to the Miami Dade Commission.
The petition, sadly, will no longer be available in chambers, but I am sure someone will be able to run with it. Again thank-you for pointing out a stumbling block which should have, quite frankly, been obvious to me.

If Rumpole may interject as a mediator (a role we are otherwise wholly unsuited for) in this matter, it seems to us that honoring the memory of Judge Crespo does not demean the memory of Judges Dakis, Levine, Leyte-Vidal and others. Judge Crespo has friends who wish to extend this honor in his memory. We support the naming of courtrooms after all of these Judges, and probably others as well. But since Judge Crespo volunteered for weekend bond duty frequently, and volunteered every Monday to address and swear in prospective jurors, it is all together fitting and proper (to steal a line from President Lincoln) that we remember him by naming either the Jury Room or the bond hearing courtroom after him.


To answer Sam I Am, it seems illogical to argue against honoring Judge Crespo because others are equally deserving of the same honor. Why not honor all departed Judges? Judge Crespo has his close friends and supporters and it is up to the friends of the other Judges to do the same.

To address Judge Pinero's concerns the Petition should be given to your friendly neighborhood FACDL Justice Building Rep, who can post it in the attorneys' room on two, the coffee shop on seven, and Au Bon Pain.

Sorry for the slow posts, but this thing is spinning out of control. Judge Phil Knight would have had this thing over with in two days.

Wannabe certified said...

No one responded to the query about certification in specialized law fields, e.g., criminal trials. Is it a respected credential? Merely a fee generator for the Bar? Why so few - are the standards impossibly high? The test too hard? Are lawyers retained on bases other than merit and experience, rendering certification no big deal? What's the scoop?

Richard E. Gerstein, the longtime prosecutor in Dade County, Fla., who uncovered the first direct links between the Watergate burglary and the White House of President Richard M. Nixon, DIED in 1992. He was 68 years old. Mr. Gerstein suffered a heart attack and was dead on arrival at 12:39 A.M. at the Miami Heart Institute, a nursing supervisor, Angela Adams, said.

DIED
April 27, 1992

I never knew he was connected with the watergate scandal

Anonymous said...

Gerstein's Chief Investigator, Martin Dardis, who died recently, "followed the money" and found Nixon campaign dollars paid for the Watergate burglars and dirty tricks. The key check went through a Miami bank. They were set to prosecute Nixon, et al, until the Watergate Special Prosecutor asked them to defer to a federal prosecution. Then Ford pardoned Nixon and the rest is just history.

Rumpole said...

Oh yes. The Miami SAO was hip deep in the Watergate scandal, with Mr. Dardis getting a mention in the Movie All the Presidents Men.

Basically this should have been our warning that Miami was about to become the scandal capital of the nation.

Anonymous said...

thats an understatement.

Anonymous said...

Wannabe certified,
I don't know if it's respected or not (I would assume so), but with all the discussions about non-qualified judges perhaps there could be some sort of certification/exam prior to being eligible to run for judge.
Why not? Make them take a real (not renting videos) course and study and pass a certification before putting in their money.

Anonymous said...

Rumpole, I concur. Lets take a poll.

1. Should a person who wants to be a Judge have to pass with a b+ before allowed to seek office?

Anonymous said...

C+ should be sufficient.

Anonymous said...

If they have to take a test, make it specific to their future assignment. Let every judge who sits in criminal court pass the Bar's certification test for criminal trials as a pre-requisite to sitting. If they are going to decide which attorneys are correct, maybe they should know some of the correct answers themselves.

I wonder if attorneys who appear in the criminal division should be tested on their qualifications to appear in Court. Do they know how to try a case? How many trials have they done?

abe laeser said...

That WPBT format sure sounds balanced to me. Is the moderator going to be for the imposition of 'proper' punishment in some rare cases? If not, would it not have made sense to hear the contrary point of view? It sounds more like an FACDL roundtable.

Anonymous said...

10:45,
Unfortunately judges often change divisions, civil to criminal etc, so a general knowledge certification exam would probably be more appropriate.
Practical experience, may not be a realistic test because there are some people, mainly civil practitioners (in my mind) who may be very good judges but may not have done 'typical' trial work.

To Lady Themis:

This is Cathy Parks. I read the Blog weekly, usually on a Saturday morning, as I'm doing now, because I find it interesting, informative and, sometimes, amuzing. I do not know who you are or what you are about, but I take great offense at your continuous unfounded nasty allegations and insults that are directed to me. I have never told any lies, contrary to your assertions. What I do know is that I have received hate mail in my mailbox, hate mail that was illegally placed in my mailbox by someone who trespassed on my property, for which a police report was duly filed. I also know that my campaign signs have been vandalized and stolen no sooner than they have been erected. However, without proof, I would never accuse anyone of those acts. If you have snething that you wish to discuss with me, please call me at 305-667-7012. I will be happy to speak with you. In the interim, I would request that you cease making unfounded accusations against me. Thank you. Cathy Parks.

I'm not a fan of naming public property after people. But in Miami, it seems to be the way to remember deceased friends. If we follow that path, though, before long, every courtroom, jury room, closet, and office will be named after a deceased person who was popular in life, and the courthouses will become just like the streets of Miami. Won't that be meaningful? And confusing, when in a few years no one knows anything about the persons whose nameplates adorn the doors. And imagine the confusion for persons not familiar with the Justice Building: "You have to be in Judge Glick's courtroom, which is called the Judge Crespo courtroom." At least with a portrait, a passerby has some sense of the person connected with the name being honored, without confusion. And, not to be personal, but every courtroom in every courthouse in Miami belongs to me -- and more importantly, to my clients -- and to you and your clients -- not to a single judge, living or deceased. It's one thing to build a monument to a person, like the Ben Willard memorial in the parking lot across from the Justice Building (quick test: Who was he and why did his friends memorialize him?) -- but it is quite another to rename a public courtroom or jury room like it was paid for with the donations of a congregant. Manny deserves to be remembered, but not by giving his name to one of everyone's courtrooms. A portrait is just fine, to be placed in a suitable location that it can be seen and contemplated while one awaits (1) a jury verdict, (2) a bond hearing, (3) a calendar call, or (4) a late judge. (Answer to Ben Willard quiz: He was a cranky old judge who scared the right of jury trial out of every "boy" to appear before him. In his time, at least, someone thought we should remember him.]

WHY NOT JUST HAVE THE PICTURES OF THE JUDGES IN ANY COURTROOM REGARDLESS OF WHICH COURTHOUSE THEY PRESIDED IN? IT STILL HONORS AND RECOGNIZES THEIR SERVICE TO THE 11TH CIRCUIT. ISN'T THAT THE POINT?

Anonymous said...

Manny was a real nice guy off the bench, however while he wore the rob he was not such a great person. In fact, many will argue and argue correctly that Manny Crespo was a joke of a judge. manny did not follow the law, and his antics on the bench would be a highlite for a comedy show.

Manny Crespo's courtroom was a laugh of laughs. Manny insulted people, played favorites with his Cuban brothers and those who donated to his campaigns. In fact, I recall sitting in a Manny's courtroom and watching him scream and yell, and then wink at the defendant.

The truth is Manny used the bench to live his life, not to help society. I have been told that Manny has done everything from let a man walk out of his courtroom with no bond and promise to surrender himself after being given a five year prison sentence (the man did not show up and is now missing) to let a women fake a pregnancy and escape (and Manny never asked for medical records). Manny had defendants bring thei girlfriends up so he could look at their chests and he screamed on and on about the breasts.

Unfortunately I did not get to practice in front of Manny, but from these stories I heard, he was a character, not an honored man that we should dedicate a courtroom to.

Ms. Park

People can say I am a creep, you could act like you don't know what I am talking about, after all that is what politics is all about.

"Win which ever way you can."

You have a concious, quite frankly, I don't believe you and you are no angel and now you want to make yourself look like a victim! If it is true as what you alleged on your post about the allegation of hate mail and what not...then the same advise told to me shall apply to you as well.

"You have provided not a single shred of evidence that you have received hate mail and ethical judicial elections are not interested in reading your baseless allegations.."

So, "Parks" I feel this advise applies to you as it does to me.

Did you get off your medication yet! Oops, sorry Ms. Parks, misread the post--this one was signed anonymous, please accept my apology!

"Lady Themis sounds like a creep. I personally know Cathy and I have no idea what you're talking about. She is as nice and honest as they come. In fact, probably too nice and honest to run for election."

Point blank, you lied then and lied just now! You will do anything to win your election won't you!

As far as calling you to dicuss anything over the telephone, no thanks. Surely, I can not discuss anything verbally with a person I have lost truct in that just becomes a hearsay!

However, if you like we can discuss anything you want on the blog!

So, feel free to ask, I will gladly respond.

People can defend you as much as they want! It is thier right!I am no fool and for sure you are not either.

By the way, you spelled "snething" wrong it is SOMETHING.....

So you see even those with high degrees make mistakes as well!

By the way let it be noted for the record---these are not accusation----but my own opinion about
"Parks' recent actions! Don't trust me, don't trust her! Again, I say "Parks" you know what you did, why not tell the rest!

Your such an honest person as said hear by you and some blog members you should not have anything to hide? Come clean with the blog, show them your how honest you really are!

Because, if you don't when the right time comes, I will come forward and post the information on the blog! So, now you decide if you will tell the truth.

To the bloggers, you may view me as a bad, nasty person---but it is not true! Plus, I will turn the cheek for now and when the right time comes, if "Parks" has not admitted to what she did just a couple days ago, in which she knows what I am talking about....it will be posted. You guys are attorney's and court people, I'm shocked you don't even know! Captain you need to get back to work.
