WE RESOLVE

Fact: Most New Years resolutions are quickly broken.

Solution: Alter your expectations.

WE RESOLVE:


To eat more. Especially bad carbs like Ice Cream and M&M’s. Leave the brown rice and sweet potatoes for those making unrealistic resolutions.

To be nicer to the SAO on the blog. Bennett too.

To roll our eyes at opposing counsel when in chambers, the Judge, who graduated law school in 2000, tells us how s/he tried every case they had, had all depos set and most taken within two weeks of arrest. We also promise to continue coughing out loud when the judge whispers that s/he will let us in on a secrete- that the Governor really wants them on the 3rd DCA.

We’re going to keep fantasizing about women way too young for us (We mean like 20-25).

To spend like crazy. Best Buy here we come.

To work a lot more. So when the time comes to pass on to the great blog in the sky, we can have that dreamy look in our eyes as we sigh “at least we spent enough time in the office.”

To not even look at discovery until the day of trial. Especially in Federal Cases.

To charge clients less. Who cares about bills and credit ratings anyway? And sign up for all those Capital One credit card offers. Just load up and blow em out.

3 words: Butter, Pizza, Cholesterol.

We’re gonna put down that book and turn on ESPN. Plus, there’s a whole bunch of new gambling websites we need to sign up for.

Pilates and Yoga are for wimps.

Sign up for that beer frequent buyer card.

To be more nasty and rude to clerks than seems possible. We went to law school! Don’t they realize that means we’re better human beings than they are? They exist merely to stamp and copy, and to do it quickly at that. Chop chop.

And finally, to blog more at the expense of our personal life and work life. After all, there is that great blog in the sky, and we’re soooo very important to legal life in Miami. Right?

Gonna do our best- like in past years- do make a dedicated effort- or as Reno likes to say “Our Level Best” to keep each and every one of these resolutions.

See You In Court yelling at the clerk and mocking the judge.

Really Rump, your response to HHWMBN crosses the line by telling him that he needs to lose weight. I thought this blog stayed away from comments on personal appearance. Most especially, the type of response that you made--taunting and humiliating a person for their weight. I must say I am really surprised and offended at your comment. And yes to all those who are wondering out there--I too could stand to lose some pounds.

Rumpole: How about a listing of the very good trial lawyers from the sao and pd who were too competent and too much of a threat to their boss so they get fired or asked to resign. Remember Michael Band, Marlene Montaner to name a couple.

1:06 PM. How do you know who I am responding to? No name was mentioned, thus no person was ridiculed on this blog for the way they look.

Additionally, It's my blog and I shall do as I please.

As to "It's on Man..."
go file another lawsuit you simpleton. Should I start publishing your "I really need you help" emails? As to my size- here is what we can do-

You give 10 thousand dollars to any attorney of your choice to be held in their trust fund- and you pick the distance
20 yard, 40 yards, 100 yards, 1 mile, 5 miles, 10 miles, 15 miles

and we shall race.
I will need a notarized letter assiging me the proceeds should I win.

In return I will put 50 thousand in that same trust account assigning the proceeds to you should you win.

Game on pudgy?

Rumpole said...

And I believe what you snack on is spelled "oreo", although quite frankly I haven't eaten one since law school.

Rumpole said...

PS. I shall race in a ski mask, so the longer the distance, the more "advantage" you might have. Although you can see me on the weekends running over the Key Biscayne Bridge, down the Key and Back again. If you can't huff and puff your way up, I would suggest you forgo the race and stake out the bridge with a video camera. But I run at weird times.

While technically within the letter of blog law, your comment falls outside the spirit of blog law. Of course, I do also recognize your penultimate power as owner of the blog to do as you wish--I just think it was a low blow and very unRumpolelike (perhaps you had too many toddies this past New Year's Eve?)

Rumpole said...

I don't mind being called names. And I have been called worse than trash. But who is JT? And how is my friend?

And I think a whole host of people at the SAO and PDs office, not to mention the entire judiciary would object to viewing me as a saint.

But as Billy Joel sang-

"I'd rather laugh with the sinners, then die with the saints. The sinners are much more fun."

Rumpole said...

1:48. You are correct. I was wrong.

I just hate the first work day of the new year. It makes me irritable, and the resolution of no coffee doesn't help.

Plus, I just get annoyed having to sift through proposed comments and reject the ones from this person who claims he has never read the blog.

I'm just grouchy. 363 days to go. I like the holiday season (all that free food and booze) and January and February are just such blue months. Maybe I have seasonal affect disorder. Or I just hate running in the dark.

Rumpole said...

Now I know who JT is. I'm not publishing the comment. I have never met him.

Nor will I publish the comment which is a reprint from the broward blog where weighty matter are apparently being debated as we speak.

Anonymous said...

Rumpole, you would agree with me that the tone thus far this year (today) on the blog is quite negative? To what do you explain this hostile beginning?

My advice is that you not respond to whats his name, I think it's making you loopy, as Billy Joel said:

"go ahead with your own life, leave me alone"

Rumpole said...

Good advice indeed. Of course I'm never the one who starts it. He sends a bunch of comments. I refuse to post them. Then he gets upset, then I respond. Meanwhile I'm about to start a big federal trial and runing the blog today is a good diversion keeping me from preparing.

And by the way, as a Broward Blog afficionado, your "superfriend" has officially gotten on my nerves beyond belief. Why he thinks that running a 5th tier record/promotion company is qualification to be Clerk of Court is beyond me.

If that is a criteria, I used to download thousands of songs and burn them onto CD's. That makes me as a much a record mogul as him.

BREAKING NEWS

Beach cop investigated over bawdy video

BY DAVID OVALLE
dovalle@MiamiHerald.com

Internal affairs detectives are investigating a music video posted on Youtube.com that shows a scantily clad dancing woman at a bar briefly performing simulated oral sex on a uniformed Miami Beach police officer.

The video was posted by a user named ''Caselord'' in late November. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iXQml5T3mk].

The internal affairs bureau has been aware of the video for about a week, Detective Juan Sanchez, a spokesman, said on Wednesday.

Officer Elpidio Garcia, 35, remains on patrol on Miami Beach.

The two-minute, 12-second video shows a party scene at an unknown outdoor Miami Beach bar, set to a thumping electronic beat.

Early in the video, the burly, bald officer is shown surrounded by three dancing women. Throughout the video, a woman in a plaid skirt can be seen dancing and lifting up her shirt.

Toward the end of the video, she is seen dancing -- and then simulating oral sex -- on Garcia, who is standing next to a sidewalk drinking from a large water bottle. It was unclear whether the officer was providing off-duty security for the bar.

This is the second Youtube video to surface in recent months that show a uniformed Miami Beach police officer in a party scene.

In October, a video was posted that allegedly showed disgraced Officer Eduardo Macias at a bar surrounded by cheering revelers.

Macias is facing trial on official misconduct charges after he allegedly tried dating a woman he had fondled while transporting to the police station. He has pleaded not guilty.

Like the person who took the cheap shot at Band, your courage (use your own name) is second to all others.

What a great way to start the year. Another jerk who forgot his resolutions - but remembered how to kick a guy when he is down.

Rumpole said...

George Cholakis is the shining example (if he is guilty and I presume he is not) of all that is wrong with guidelines and an SAO fueled and driven by victims.

He is charged with a bad crime.
He has paid a heavy price.
Certainly a man who has contributed so much can have his case resolved without it entirely wrecking his life.

But we continue to elect politicans who run on the "lock everyone up and throw the keys away" platform- and judges are either mandated or intimidated into following that philosophy
( of course the ones who take delight in it have a special place in hell resevred for them)

and people like Mr. Cholakis are the victims of it.

If he's guilty, suspend his license, put him on probation, and put an interlock device in his car and be done with it. Mandatory AA and move on. By all appearances he is someone who if he's guilty, made a mistake, and should be allowed to move on with his life. This limbo sucks.

We live in the 21st century. There is alcohol. There are cars. Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone. I cannot throw that stone, and while it has happened rarely, and never in the last 20 years, the only difference between me, probably most lawyers and judges, and Mr. Cholakis, is the grace of the almighty.

Get his case settled reasonably and be done with it.

Ladies Ladies please. There's more than enough Rumpole to go around. However a practical matter has reared it's ugly head. It seems Mr. Thompson has filed a Bar complaint against Famed Broward Blogger William Geilin for running the Broward Blog.

Re: Formal Sworn Bar Complaint against William Jay Gelin, FB #490229

Dear Adria Quintela:

This is my formal sworn Bar complaint against Mr. William Gelin, who operates a popular legal community blog at http://jaablog.jaablaw.com/.

As you know, a Florida attorney by the name of Sean Conway is being prosecuted by The Bar for posting at this same blog certain comments critical of Judge Aleman, who was tried by the JQC for doing things that Mr. Conway said she did. The Bar, nevertheless, is proceeding against Mr. Conway for his fact-based criticism.

As you also know, Florida Bar Rule 4-8.4 (a) prohibits a Florida lawyer from assisting others to violate Bar Rules. In other words, it is a conspiracy or proxy Rule. If Mr. Conway violated Bar Rules in criticizing Judge Aleman, Mr. Gelin clearly did as well, as he aggressively moderates (censors/edits) JAABLOG. Mr. Conway could not have posted his comments about Judge Aleman without Mr. Gelin’s assistance. If you are to proceed against Mr. Conway, you have absolutely no choice but to prosecute Mr. Gelin as well.

Additionally, you need to understand that JAABLOG’S routine content is criticism of Broward judges and other officials. The Bar, if it is to enforce its speech codes found in its Rules, simply must enforce them against Mr. Gelin via Rule 4-8.4(a).

Further, Mr. Gelin, with the advent of the New Year, has authored and posted at JAABLOG a broadside against the judiciary in Broward as follows:

THE GHOST OF 2007 SPEAKS:
Posted by JAABLOG at 1/1/2008 4:57 PM and is filed under uncategorized
TOP TEN REASONS WHY BROWARD JUDICIARY IMPLODED IN 2007

12/31/2007 8:35 PM ...

http://jaablog.jaablaw.com/2008/01/01/the-ghost-of-2007-speaks.aspx

Clearly, if The Bar is to prosecute anyone for criticism of the judiciary, it must prosecute Mr. Gelin for this and anything critical of judges at his site.

Please proceed.

I SOLEMNLY AFFIRM, UNDER OATH AND UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY, THAT THE FOREGOING FACTS ARE TRUE, CORRECT, AND COMPLETE, SO HELP ME GOD.

Regards, Jack Thompson

Rumpole said...

Yeah I saw it. File it under the saying "In for a penny, in for a pound."

I don't think JT is after Gelin or Conway. Indeed, he has previously written in defense of Conway. He is trying to force the Bar's hand and point out the inconsistency of how they enforce bar regs- his own case being the foremost example in his mind.

Anonymous said...

Jack Thompson's actions remind me of the episode of "South Park" when Cartman sued the school for sexual harassmant (no pun intended towards Herb Walker) and the case ended up as Everyone vs. Everyone. Why doesn't he just file a Complaint against every member of the Bar? Every lawyer, at least in private, makes disparaging comments about their bretheren and sisteren.

Actually, 11:10 has hit the nail on the head. Under Jacky-T's theory of the case for his complaint against Bill Gelin, at least every attorney that read the Broward Blog entry by Sean Conway, heard of it, read someone commenting about it, etc., was required to report the alleged unethical conduct to the Bar.

The failure to do so would be a violation of the Rules.

I'm looking forward to reading the decision in Florida Bar vs. Everyone who reads the Broward Blog, Esq.

Following Jack's logic on the proxy interpretation of the bar rule, I think we need to include in the formal complaint the following people:

1) Mr. Gelin's mom for birhting him. Were it not for her, Gelin could not criticize people.

2) Gelin's elementary school teachers for teaching him to read and write, thus enabling his behavior.

3) Dell and gateway for the PC used in this alleged criticism.

Jack Thompson, Attorney wrote:
Let's see if you alleged attorneys, bravely identifying yourselves as "anonymous," can follow this. This is not terribly difficult, so pay attention:

If The Bar is going to enforce its unconstitutional speech codes (see Fieger v. Michigan Supreme Court) against some Florida lawyers, then it's going to have to enforce them against all lawyers.

You alleged lawyers understand the equal protection problems with selective prosecution, right? It's a sort of basic constitutional concept.

Now, if Sean Conway is to be disciplined for criticizing a judge, then Bill Gelin must be disciplined as well, as Rule 4_8.4(a) mandates that any lawyer who assists another in violating a Rule must be held accountable as well.

What is really reprehensible is that Bill Gelin himself did not tell The Bar this, since he's supposedly all for free speech and so forth.

The Bar seeks to disbar me for telling the truth about Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Ron Friedman and an irrascible judge in Alabama by the name of James Moore.

It is beyond foolish, then, that people who claim to be anonymous lawyers don't "get" the fact that if The Bar is allowed to cherrypick whom it is going to prosecute under these unconstitutional speech codes, then The Bar will be making good on Justice Douglas' prediction in Lathrop v. Donohue that integrated state bars would be "goose-stepping brigades."

Either lawyers or people who claim to be lawyers will tell The Bar, as I have, to be consistent and nonselective in such things, or The Bar will be the thought police of extremist knuckleheads like Bar Governors Ben Kuehne and Steve Chaykin.

Martin Luther King, Jr., understood the usefulness and the wisdom of pushing the government to the logical extension of its unjust, unconstitutional laws. That is what I am doing here. Bill Gelin, if he were consistent, would thank me.

And if the rest of you knew anything about American history, the constitution, and how to force the machine to change, you would thank me, too.

But I don't need your thanks. Just get the Hell out of the way. Adults are working here to preserve the Constitution, you anonymous cowards notwithstanding.

Actually, Jack has a great point on the free speech issue (some of the others, not so much). It's very frustrating that judges can slam us in their opinions, but we can't defend ourselves by pointing out how wrong they are (even when discussing the opinions in which they slammed us).

I for one would be happy to testify about how that works out.

Jack.......if you'd stick to your argument and not spend so much time slamming anyone and everyone who crosses your path, you'd get a lot farther. Your good points get lost in your rhetoric. And you're smart enough to know that people make decisions with more than their minds. Win their hearts, Jack, win their hearts.
