TRAFFIC. PARKING.

A Rumpole Irregular writes to report that there are "high-level" discussions among the wearers of the Robes and attorneys on ways to reduce traffic in the REGJB. Apparently Au Bon Pain cannot keep up with the requests for Cappuccinos.

With the pending sale and closure of the Mahi Shrine Parking Lot, the question being pondered by great legal minds in our humble building, is:
"hmmmmm....now what do we do now?"

The solution of allowing represented defendants not to attend misdemeanor soundings seems like a quick fix. However, what do you do with all the unrepresented defendants?

The idea of excusing all of Sy Gaer's clients from attending court should also reduce traffic by about 20%. However, like solving the global warming crisis, there is more work to be done.

We humbly advance these ideas:

1) Do away with traffic ticket soundings. Really. Wasn't that going overboard just a little bit? A sounding for a traffic ticket? How about doing it on-line? Set up a web site, list the traffic ticket, have one of those traffic magistrates that everyone is nice to on the day their sister has a ticket, and have the Magistrate review the ticket and "post" a plea offer. The driver logs on, and can click "I accept" or "set for trial." If nothing is done, the case is set for trial.
And by the way, don't continue a traffic ticket trial. Ever. They pretty much have the same policy in Federal Court for matters that are a bit more serious, and it seems to work for them.

2. Judicial Economy.

The point to solving the pending parking crisis is, to borrow a legal phrase we once read somewhere, "inextricably intertwined" (sounds like something that happens on an L&L case) with Judicial Economy. No, we don't mean the going price for bribing a judge, what we mean is that Judges need to be more efficient.

We respect a Judge who requires a written motion before a matter is placed on calendar. But then what? In our memory, only Judge Izzy Reyes was efficient enough to have read our motion and drafted an order by the time we appeared in court. Our view is that the rest of the Judges just bank on attorneys being too lazy to write a motion. For instance, most county court judges will not let you calendar a motion to vacate a bench warrant without a written motion. But the written motion, when done, is a waste of paper. There is no written response from the State, and the motion is ignored during the court hearing. The attorney should be required to obtain a response from the prosecutor. There should be a rule that if the prosecutor doesn't respond within a certain period of time, the motion is granted for lack of opposition. Does this increase the work load on ASA's? Yes. But it reduces their in court work load an equal amount.

The point is that if we can be efficient in using court time, more extraneous matters would not be on the calendar. And that brings us to our last point.

ELECTRONIC FILING AND CASE MANAGEMENT:


It galls us to say this, but the Feds have gotten it right. The Feds have an electronic filing system that really does work. You file a motion, it's automatically emailed to the opposing party and all co-counsel. The Judge gets a copy, and when there is a ruling, its entered into an electronic docket that has the entire court file available in Adobe Format. Paperless filing removes the need for support personnel to scan documents. The written motion- and the response- becomes the motion the court relies upon- not an appearance at a hearing- and the matter is decided usually without a court hearing.

The point is that this is the electronic age of information. The State court system needs to do more to take advantage of the possibilities to streamline the flow of cases. This, in turn, frees up valuable court time for important matters, like motions to suppress and trials. Ask any trial Judge what their biggest frustration is? Outside of our snide comments in court, the overwhelming answer is "doing calendar." Solve the burgeoning calendar issue, and a by-product is that you solve the parking problem, and even help contribute to reversing global warming. Less use of paper, less travel to court, less greenhouse gases.

Become efficient, and go green.
Not a bad package.

See You In Court.

More efficacy means more parking. More parking means less chaos. Less chaos means less need for attorneys. I oppose any change from the status quo.

Eliminating soundings on Wednesdays would only triple the traffic into the building on Mondays which is already the busiest day of the week. Many cases get resolved at soundings. Furthermore, continuance issues would arise on trial dates after witnesses might have appeared unnecessarily. Soundings greatly reduce this possibility.

Pretrials on traffic infractions also reduce traffic into the building as a significant number of cases get resolved at this stage thereby reducing the prospect that witnesses would have to appear for trial. Trial settings by their nature result in greater numbers of people entering the building.

Several branch courts are currently closed. When they reopen, traffic will be reduced.

If attorneys whose cases arise at branch courts would not systematically request a jury trial there would be less traffic at REG. Not suggesting that defendants forgo their right to a jury trial but the vast percentage of these requests are made for attorney convenience and not because the client truly wants a jury trial.

They should really keep Mahi open for a while and at the same time, build a multilevel parking garage (10 or so floors) at the lot right next to the courthouse.

Anonymous said...

Here's an idea: enforce our licensing laws. That should mean towing half the cars in the lot. Start taking the DWLS cases more seriously, increase the fines and use the money to improve traffic enforcement and lessen congestion. WOW. What a concept. Naw. This is Miami. Nobody wants to actually enforce the law. Nevermind.

As for your idea requiring responses from prosecutors to every motion.........do you have any idea how many frivolous form motions are filed? For every legitimate motions, prosecutors see at least 20 bogus ones (some of which are filed to preserve the record, others are filed so attorneys have an excuse to charge absurd fees). Many of the remainder are boilerplate motions that require defense counsel to do nothing more than enter a client's name, case number and a couple of facts. These motions don't put the prosecutors on notice about anything other than the overall issue. What's the point of the response? 95% of the motions don't deserve a response. Why kill all the trees and increase the workload of the Clerk's Office (in case you haven't noticed, they can barely keep up as it is) to achieve precisely nothing. 99% of motions never get heard. There's a reason for that.

The vast majority of the ones that do get an evidentiary hearing where everything is discussed anyway. And, we quickly learn, surprise, surprise, that most are without merit (unfortunately, lots of folks set these things to see if witnesses will show up or to put on a show for their clients).

I'm no longer a prosecutor, but I think it's ridiculous to expect them to respond to everything.

Build a complex with parking garage, courtrooms, office space for SAO, PD's and Clerk, and an a tower with living and office condominium units to sell to attorneys and bondsmen to finance the cost of the project.

It bothers me that the cops park illegally, blocking fire lanes, crosswalks ect. It symbolizes that they are above the law. They can park with impunity wherever they choose. What other laws can they disregard? Presumably, rules prohibiting parking in fire lanes and crosswalk are designed to promote public safety. Why are the cop permitted to disregard this law? Where do I get a form to file a complaint?

Wow, i should not have retired as a Judge. i never realized what a perk it was to be able to park underground in the REGJB garage. who am i kidding, i would rather take 10x's the circuit judge's annual salary in just one year as a private lawyer...but it is pretty cool to park in your own court house spot!

Using the Federal system would require us all to concede that the judiciary here is the equal of the Federal bench. I am far from persuaded.

The sick, lame, lazy, and stupid will always be on the bench in the REG - I want to at least see thier faces when they screw my clients (after NOT reading any of the pleadings or legal memoranda).

The recent headline from the FDA Press Release reads: "FDA Warns Consumers Not to Eat Certain Jars of Peter Pan Peanut Butter and Great Value Peanut Butter" - why would consumers eat the jars?

Anonymous said...

Seattle lawyer William Marler has filed a lawsuit in Kansas City for a Missouri family that became sick after eating peanut butter.

William Marler says the lawsuit filed today in federal court is the first in the salmonella outbreak that has sickened nearly 300 people in 39 states.

Brian and Susanna Cox of St. Joseph and their two children became sick in October after consuming Great Value Peanut Butter purchased at a Wal-Mart Superstore.

Any local lawyer willing to represent me I have all the medical papers the jar of peter pan that made me sick and the store receipt etc etc.....wil the Q help?

link to lawsuit:

http://www.marlerblog.com/articles/-legal-cases/

SPRINGFIELD, MO – A Salmonella lawsuit was filed Friday in United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri against ConAgra, the Omaha, Nebraska-based food company whose Georgia peanut butter plant has been traced as the source of a Salmonella outbreak that sickened hundreds. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Buchannan County, Missouri, residents Brian and Susanna Cox and their two children. The Cox family is represented by Seattle-based Marler Clark, the Seattle law firm that has represented thousands of victims of foodborne illness outbreaks, and Springfield, Missouri-based Aleshire, Robb & Sivils.

In the lawsuit, attorneys allege that the Cox family first became ill with symptoms of Salmonella infections in October, 2006 and that both children required medical treatment. Unaware of the association between the consumption of peanut butter and their illnesses, the Cox family continued to purchase and consume Great Value brand peanut butter in the subsequent months. The Cox family first learned of a Salmonella outbreak traced to Great Value brand peanut butter on February 14, 2007, when the Food and Drug Administration announced Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter manufactured in ConAgra’s Georgia peanut butter plant had been traced as the source of a Salmonella outbreak among nearly 300 residents of 39 states.

“I’ve handled claims on behalf of victims of nationwide Salmonella outbreaks traced to tomatoes, cereal, and unpasteurized orange juice, but never peanut butter,” said William Marler, managing partner of Marler Clark.

Marler listed his top five recommendations for individuals who may be part of the Salmonella outbreak:

1. If you or a family member are still sick, please seek medical treatment.

2. If you do seek medical treatment, please ask that a stool culture be done to try and confirm that you have been sickened by Salmonella.

3. You should contact you local health department about your concerns and to relate information about your family members’ illnesses. Please make note of your peanut butter label, the brand, and the product code found on the lid—“2111” is the implicated product. Also note when and where you purchased it. This information will help the health department’s investigation.

LENNY COOPERMAN UPDATE!!!

Many of you remember Lenny Cooperman, who after losing a hard fought and close election for Judge, accepted a post as a federal claims judge or something like that up North. Now comes word that after his wife became the new governor's physician, Cooperman has been appointed to the State Appeals court- equivalent to our DCA.

Congratulations Lenny. You were always better than that dumb county court spot you wanted.

I could have sworn that Cooperman won, but left the bench for the Judge spot up North. Didn't he do some large chemical company lawsuit as a Judge before leaving?
I always thought it was his performance in that case that got him the promotion to the federal slot in Maine.
