TUESDAY IS LOOKING BETTER

UPDATE: Milt Hirsch story breaks a civil angle....go to the civil blog here and read all the gory details including someone named "the grinder" and first amendment dross. (care to jump in Word of the Day Guys?)

Monday is done. Despite the hostile environment you know where, our client emerged from court looking like this:





And that's how we will feel back in the friendly confines of our home turf on Tuesday.

And speaking of smiling, there are two attorneys who are downright beaming.
Abdul Kallon (40) of Birmingham, Alabama and Jacqueline Nguyen (44) of Los Angeles were nominated to the Federal District Court by President Obama on Friday. Kallon was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and Nguyen and her family fled Vietnam when Saigon fell to the Communists.

Talk about diversity jurisdiction!!

Finally and way way off topic for this blog is this fascinating story in the NY Times.
We probably know less about conducting a successful relationship than the average judge knows about the 4th amendment (you know Judge, the pesky one that says all the stuff about search and seizure and that probable cause junk).

Anyway, what do you do when your spouse of twenty plus years comes home and announces that he's leaving and doesn't love you anymore?

And no, the answer does not involve the words "Glock" and "9 millimeter ammunition". But what this woman did may surprise you.
And more surprising, it worked!!!

See you in court. It's still hot and these judges have not done a damn thing about the dress code/tie thing.

A Broward sheriff's deputy used the power of his badge to intimidate at least eight men into performing sex acts with him during traffic stops in Oakland Park, Sheriff Al Lamberti said. "He was disgraceful and he abused his power," Lamberti said at a news conference hours after the arrest. "And he preyed on one of the most vulnerable people in our community: undocumented immigrants."

Broward sheriff's deputy Jonathan Bleiweiss, 29, targeted , even stalked illegal immigrants who feared reprisal. Lamberti said "And he preyed on one of the most vulnerable people in our community: undocumented immigrants." (Note to Sheriff: Undocumented immigrants are "vunerable" because they are here, the USA, illegally. Here contrary to the law. Just sayin..)

Investigators think Bleiweiss, a seven-year veteran of the force, had been sexually assaulting men while on duty since at least August 2008, said Detective Graciela Benito.

His targets always fit a similar profile: young men between the ages of 17 and 30, mostly Latino and all of them in the country illegally, said Benito. The men were from various countries, including Mexico and El Salvador.

"He knew where these men worked and lived, and he followed them for some time before actually carrying out his plan," Benito said.

Driving a marked patrol car, dressed in uniform and toting a gun, Bleiweiss would pull a vehicle over in a sham traffic stop or approach a man as he waited to be picked up for work, authorities said.

He'd then place his victim against his cruiser and pat him down, moving closer to the groin area before inserting his hands in the man's pants, Benito said.

Officials said he also performed oral sex on some of the men and masturbated others.

Query: Where do the undocumented vunerable illegal aliens/immigrants go to file a lawsuit?

You can't make this stuff up!

Anyone know who the female attorney is who's telling friend she's running for Judge on '10?

That Times story sounds a little odd to me. More like an after the fact fabrication by some wife/therapist to test her pet behavioral theory of the week. Or else she is the one that did not ever love him. One thing I am certain about: you can bet your ass she is not Hispanic.

Congrats to our participants and everyone who voted and bet on the outcome. Up next: Pam Anderson-Tommy Lee look alike duo.

The scene: Late saturday night/Sunday morning.

In a private SoBe club most of you could not get in if you tried.

A jazz quartet is playing softly with an intermittent comedy routine from a stand-up/mc. Suddenly through the liquor and smoke I see what looks like a familiar figure on the stage singing of all things, the Bozz Scaggs hit Lido Shuffle. The singer drags the thing on for almost ten minutes and by the end the crowd is going crazy, roaring, stamping their feet and just loving it. The guy finishes, throws his hands in the air, takes a bow and leaves, and I agree I had a lot to drink and had the hottest model you'll ever see hanging all over me, but I'm pretty certain the singer was Freddy Moldovan. Could that be possible that this dude was twisting and bebopping all over the stage for ten minutes?

All Milt, All The Time.....

According to the South Florida Lawyers Blog, the Milt accuser has some big time Hunton and Williams media law partner working PRO BONO to get the tapes unsealed. SAO wants them to remain sealed.

Hearing set for August 13th.

Hmmmm... A woman gets fondled by a BSO cop and everyone is upset.

Men get a BJ from a cop and I wonder how the police found out?

Would this have come out diffent (pardon the pun) if the cop was a female?

Trust me, there is a double standard.
