RESOLUTIONS

It’s a time for renewal. For getting rid of old habits, and making changes.

Herewith, Rumpole makes these solemn New Year’s Resolutions.


10. Not to drink and blog (so much).

9. Write more.

8. Attend more Pilates classes.

7. Be nicer to State Court Prosecutors. The Feds can go pound salt.

6. Be meaner to the Feds (see #7-nothing like getting a head start on those resolutions.)

5. Save More. Spend less.

4. Get that 60 inch Plamsa TV.

3. Drink less and read more case law. (Who are we kidding?)

2. Try more cases.

[gosh this is hard].

1. Be nicer to Judges.

See you in Court in 2007.

BREAKING BLOG NEWS

This is Big.

I now have proof. Not complete. But enough to go public.

Rumpole. You old sly dog.

You have lingered in the shadows long enough. But your clues have outed you.

You're not any of the people in the top ten list.

No. You're older. As fits many of your posts. You have been around a long time.

You're a former PD, yes?

And here is what confirms this for me. You have a pretty good ability at sports handicapping.

Hmmm... You are a master at voire dire. You are a master at picking horses...

You old rascal....GENE ZENOBI.

COME CLEAN.

New Years Eve News...Las Vegas style. Yes the long arm of the even one reaches to Nevada where reports reach us of a very married prosecutor and the husband of a prominent south florida (not necessarily Miami) Judge lying at the pool at the Hard Rock Hotel pretending to oogle the girls, but really enjoying rubbing the suntan oil on each other.

Have a Happy New Year Fellas?

I love this british reality series Temptation Island. a bunch of english tarts with bad teeth and rocking bodies cheating their little hearts out.

Rumpole, in the name of all that is good and pure- please use your considerable influence- MAKE NICK SABAN TAKE THE ALAMABA JOB. GET RID OF NICK. GET RID OF NICK.

The man is 15-17 in two years. I define anyone to name the first round pick this year. He can't even make the special teams squad.

Anonymous said...

Oh- and don't you wish you had a tape of this conversation?

Saban: Mr. Huizinga- we feel pretty good about this. Brees shoulder is suspect, while Culpepper's knee is sound.

Huizinga: So you're sure?

Saban: 100%!. Think about it. a quarterback needs to use his arm to throw. Brees will be on the bench by midseason. Guaranteed. Culpepper has always been one good coach away from the super bowl.

Huizinga: and you're that coach?

Saban. You bet I am.

Huizinga. OK. Make him and offer he can't refuse.

Phil R is innocent of being Rumpole. PD Todd Michaels and Frank Gavaria were playing cards at Frank's house a few weeks ago with Phil R when PD Todd Michaels went on line and saw Rumpole make a few posts.

Phil is innocent!!!!

(I'm not Phil).

he fooled you too. the football game was on at franks which was the subject of the posts. phil texted jackie the post and she signed on as rumpole....

Enough about Phil and Rumpole. Isn't this other story a little bit bigger?

I think the Gene Zenobi is Rumpole sounds right on to me.

The George C arrest is very sad and I hope his blood was an 0.0.

George is a great guy, even on this blog

0.0? try 1.8 if he's lucky.

if he is smart, he will call the Q. If the Q. is to busy, get the Naf.. If the Naf can't do it- bring in Bobby Arron.

Anonymous said...

Zenobi as rumpole makes some sense: old enough for the history in the posts, as head of appointment committee has access to judges for the posts about judges and elections, has free time cause only goes to court on murder cases-infrequent court dates, and loves to have his ass kissed by attorney 20-30 years younger than him at pd so has access to internal pd gossip and has a few asas he doesn't hate who give access to internal sao gossip-like laesar and waxman. good possibility- definitely not a judge or lawyer with heavy case load. if this is your final achievement in a distinguished career then you should have thought it out a little more- how about some ideas on cutting down gun violence or speaking in the community but that would cut down on your murder cases- yeah i guess it was a bad idea- lets have more gun violence-yeah! African americans - for the new year please continue to kill each other off- us jew lawyers need the work.

I guess the shoe is now on the other foot hey CHILOTIS- for years you have gossiped about others- now they will gossip about you- do u like the taste of humble pie- good luck w FLA and now u will see how ungrateful your employer for ten years is- you'll be gone- and now you will learn compassion- a trait you have missed which is why the man upstairs has put you in this predicament- are you now teachable or will u remain stubborn, arrogant, willful and self-centered. another hot shot bites the dust

you say that until he walks into ct with the NAF.

I hope he doesnt waste half his annual salary for a lawyer like Sharpstein or Reiff.

Lyons and Lurvey to the rescue?

Rumpole said...

2 Points- 1) to 1:58 who thinks I might be mean Gene Zenobi- have you read any of the posts I have made through the year? I have waxed eloquent against guns, violence, the death penalty, mistaken ID, and it bores the beejeezus out of the readers

2) To 2:14 gloating about Cholakis- If you think this is payback for his bad Karma- what does that say the universe has in store for your sorry ass?(Rumpole curses!! Film at 11).
Why not be a professional? Wish the man well or say nothing at all.

Personally, we do not wish this on anyone. The hardest cases we handle- absolutely 100% hardest are the DUI manslaughter cases
( and the good lord willing, no one will die here.) Those cases are usually good people who make one tragic mistake.

PS How does anyone know the BAL is .18??

At least he double refused. Does anybody know if there was a forced blood draw?

hey a s s hole, i mean rumpole. your whole blog is predicated on character assassination anonymously because u r 2 much of a pussy to say anything to anyone's face and your health is in danger when u r finally exposed. how do u spell hypocrit= if someone isn't kissing your ass you attack them- you stand up for chilotis because he is one of the 20 asshole friends you have with the same pea brain of gossip and character assination. if it was someone not in your inner blog group you would be dancing on their arrest form. go f yourself and start taking self defense classes - you jew boys can't fight w anything other than words and pens.

"you jew boys can't fight w anything other than words and pens."

Neither could Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln or Winston Churchill.

-------------------
-------------------

Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields, and in the streets; we shall never surrender!

- Churchill


Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

-Lincoln

3:01 ranted in a racist tone, in part:

you jew boys can't fight w anything other than words and pens

Rumpole replies: Ok yeah? Let me take these glasses of, hold my yarmulke will ya, here- hold the torah, take this box of matzoh I have, please hold on to this Menorah, ok- arms full?
Now I'm going to stab you with my pen you rascist jerk.

How do you know I'm Jewish? If you had half a brain and read the book about my email namesake, you would know that I do not practice religion. But I would make an exception in this case- I would beat you so bad that you would cry to your lord and maker to save you.

Have a nice day at the Klan rally.

Who lost a leg? Cholakis or the other guys? Word is David Gilbert and KFR both appeared on the scene. And word is there was a forced blood draw.

Anonymous said...

Rumpole and his supporters: you are so predictable- one little jab at you with and you have to bring up Nazis and the Holocaust. That's like saying whenever a rapper uses the N WORD it should start a dialogue about slavery. You Jews want to make everything about how oppressed you were. I have have news for you, every race and ethnicity has been oppressed and you are not even in the same ballpark as the legitimate gripe the african americans and american indians have. And you couldn't even figure out that that blogger was from the sao trying to divert attention from the cholotis thing. Get more rest, your intellectual functioning is dissipating. WHat a lonely pathetic life-you nothing better to do than create an entire blog site to the details of a fellow attorney making a mistake- you are not showing compassion-you are dancing on his grave and highlighting his mistake and giving it a soapbox. why not take up a new career as a paparazzi photographer or gossip columnist for inside edition. it is more money. I for one live to hear about the paris hiltons' of the world. If you read the flw as much as the herald maybe you would have more cases and no time for a blog.

Sharpstein couldnt try his way out of a paper bag. The bark is louder than the bite. Everyone knows that.

Amazing to see so many defense attorneys (people who don't think twice about taking money to defend scumbag child moleseters and murderers) posting anti-semitic comments on this sight.

To the person who said "you Jew boys can't fight with anything but pens." I have just one question: Have you seen our army lately? It has done pretty well over the last 60 or so years.
