MONDAY NIGHT COURT APPOINTMENTS

BREAKING BLOG AND REGJB NEWS: JUDGE FAST GERRY KLEIN, BELIEVED TO BE THE LONGEST SERVING ACTIVE JUDGE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA HAS "RETIRED" FROM DOING BOND HEARINGS.

WHAT'S THE REAL STORY?


COURT APPOINTMENT MEETING.

MONDAY NIGHT.

TONIGHT.

AT TOBACCO ROAD 5 PM.

Come complain and commiserate and conspire, combine, and confederate with other lawyers about how we can get our gravy train back.

We would humbly suggest the event turn into a Blog party.

But then again, who are we to suggest anything?

While we're all together how about a little lobbying to get the close/close rule changed again; to get the Robert's court to read the Fourth Amendment; and to have the 3rd DCA stop worrying about where the law leads them?

See You In Court, still not taking appointments.

For the person who complained about people posting Sopranos plots, I will endeavor to stop that until a day or so after the show. However, next week is the last week, so no worries.

I'm into the whole Sarduy thing, especially his appointment to circuit court.

What do Judge Cristina Shuminer and Gator Coach Billy Donovan have in common?

Can we put out a BLOG APB on attorney Jonathan Schwartz? You know, the weird one who held meditation meetings at 3pm in his office where all the phones were turned off and everyone had to meditate for 5 minutes?

Whats upwitdat?

Rumpole said...

for the writer who warned JQC Rock about snooping around the 3rd DCA appointment, and used the Greek Mythology of Icarus flying too close to the sun, we are forewarned.

FAST GERRY? SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!!

I ON Q said...

I would like to respectfully move this blog's commentary back to the Q, away from Shuminer, Sarduy, Cris, Alan, Gerry Klein, etc.

Remember: Q is the word.

Also:

Fear the Q
Respect the Q

Close your eyes.......become the Q.



I on Q is the promoter of podcasts about the Q that are available where ever fine podcasts are downloaded.

E IS FOR ME said...

I don't think the E gets as much credit as he should. With that southern drawl, he's a smooth as churned butter on a hot tallahasee afternoon.

Fear the Q? Maybe.

But BE THE E!!1

Shumie , Shumie me do.
You know I Shumie you,

So please, please please
Shumie shumie shumie me do.

Rumpole said...

uhh...3:44...I'd change that to past tense.

old guy said...

I will miss 'fast Gerry". Always kept his golfing tan.

The Roberts' court knows all about the constitution. They just do not think it applies to people like you and me.

Close/Close? How many liberal state legislators do you think we will have next time? That one is a lost cause.

Who is Sarduy?

Anonymous said...

Sarduy is perhaps the finest county court Judge since Arthur Winton donned the black robes. He destined for GREATNESS!!!!

Rumpole, can you run a poll as to which "Shumie song" is the favorite of the readers?

Shumie shumie coco puffs verus shumie shumie do? and the like?

Thanks.

Announcer: Hola, and welcome to the very first taping of "final verdict" the brand new court show staring Judge Cristina Shuminer.

Now before we begin, for the folks in our audience.....

CAPTAIN PRO SE: (jumps on to stage and swirls cape over his face).

SIC SEMPER TYRRANIS!

Announcer: Who are you?

CPS: I am Captain Pro Se.

Announcer: No, I don't think so compadre, Captain Pro Se usually has trumpets that Herald his appearance in public.

CPS. Well I used to do that, but it caused problems because most people didn't know what the trumpets were.

Announcer: And what does Sic Sempere...what did you exactly say?

CPS SIC SEMPER TYRRANIS- It is what John Wilkes Booth shouted after he shot Lincoln and jumped on stage.
It means "Thus always to tyrrants".

Announcer: But judge Shuminer is not a tyrrant.

CPS. Yes she is. She is a former Judge in Miami. They are all tyrrants. But the real reason I am here is because I want to go on spanish lanuague television and ask anyone if they know who Rumpole is.

Announcer: Who?

CPS. Rumpole the mean. He is my arch enemy. I want to sue him, if I can just get his real identity.

Announcer: And you think someone who views our program may know him?

CPS. Exactly.

Announcer. I am sorry Amigo, but we charge for airtime. You can buy a commercial. Otherwise you will have to leave now.

CPS. Unhand me you cad. I shall sue you. And I will sue Univision, and Judge Shuminer, and everyone in the audience. Rumpole may be here. Have everyone line up so I can get their name, address, and give them a summons and complaint. I have several hundred summons and complaints on me at any time. That's why I'm Captain Pro Se!

Announcer to security that has arrived: Take him away boys.

CPS. Tort! Tort! I want costs and fees. Stop it. Ouch, that hurts. I shall sue you, and your family, and your neighbors for living next to you. You haven't heard the last of Captain Pro Se.
(to himself) Drats, foiled again.

Stay tuned for more adventures of CPS. Fenwick/Hardiwck productions, in association with Operation Restore Sanity. (c) 2007. All rights reserved.

Judge Klein retires! Great! Now Judge Farina is really on his way out! See you Mr. Farina aka Dictator.

Dear Rumpole/Rock:

I'm a superstitious man, and if some unlucky accident should befall Little Cris - if she is to be given poor ratings or not picked up for a 4th season, or be found shopping at a discount outlet... or if she should be reviled in this blog - then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room; and then I do not forgive.

But with that said, I pledge - on the pile of vaca frita before me - that I will not be the one to break the peace that we have made today.

Rumpole, if Fast Gerry is no longer doing bond hearings, will the defendants still be told they "have a good lawyer" and "should do what they tell them?"

Do any of the other judges know how to use the ink stamps?

Will they be building another jail for all the misdemeanor defendants that wont be getting time served and can't afford to bond out?

Actually, sometimes it's ok to give up.

The scorpion is one of the most ominous creatures of the desert. Its threatening appearance is no fa├žade either – its deadly venom is used to subdue and kill its prey. But the scorpion doesn’t really flaunt its dangerous capabilities; it’s pretty low key. Combine that with its regenerative abilities (when a scorpion loses its tail, it can quickly grow back another one), and a scorpion is not a good enemy to acquire. A Scorpio shares a lot of the same traits with its zodiac symbol. But don’t write off Scorpio as an unpleasant person to have in your life. In fact, it is quite the contrary.

Ray " Abadin" Adams: Paul, you never told me your family knew Suarez!
Marcos: Oh sure, you want to meet him?
Ray "Abadin" Adams: Yeah!
Marcos: You know, my father helped Suarez in his career.
Ray "Abadin" Adams: Really? How?
Marcos: ...Let's listen to this song.
Ray "Abadin" Adams: [after listening to Suarez for a while] Please, Marcos. Tell me.
Marcos: ...Well when Suarez was first starting out, he was signed to this contract with the U.S. Attorneys Office. And as his career got better and better he wanted to get out of it. Now, Suarez is my father's godson. My father went to see the Governor, to let Johnny go, but the Governor said no. So the next day, my father went to see the Governor again, only this time with Luca Brasi. Within an hour, the Governor signed the release, with a certified check of $1000.
Ray " Abadin" Adams: How did he do that?
Marcos: My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

Query.....Which present nominee for the 3RD DCA is related to which present member of the 3RD DCA JNC? Dade County Politics at its best. This girls and boys may give JQC Rock the ammo he needs to break this thing wide open....or not. Follow the clues. They are there. Who will benefit? Who will gain?

the triralmaster said...

the trialmaster definitely was not at meeting of the botom feeders on monday....

anti-trialmaster said...

That's right. The trialmaster has group therapy and community service on Monday nights.

Anonymous said...

Ed Sanchez and Ray Abadin are cousins.However that doesn't mean anything because Abadin has no juice in the governor's office.

Leave all of these fine 3rd DCA candidates alone already

I don't know about all these songs ABOUT Shumie, but here is one song I am sure Shumie is singing to his wife:

"And when you smile for the camera
You know I love you better..."

Point to "anti-trial master".

Nice comeback.

Warning: Sopranos info to follow!!


Congratulations to Miami lawyers Howard Sohn, Clay Keiser, and Chris Pracitto, who all made their acting debut as extras in the last Sopranos. In the scene where Phil Leotardo gives the order to kill Tony, you can see the fellas - in heavy makeup, sitting at the bar in the other room. Leotardo gives the order to clear the room and they hesitantly get up and leave. If you look closely, you can see Sohn carrying a rolled up copy of the Florida Law Weekly.

Way to go guys.
