UPDATE: People are reporting County Court Judge Antonio Arzola has been tapped for the open Circuit Slot. If this is true, congratulations to Judge Arzola for a well deserved promotion.
Former NFL running back Herschel Walker is becoming an MMA fighter at age 47. We thought you needed to know that.
How come the Fins are the only team in the NFL that can make the Wildcat formation work? Not that we're complaining. It was fun to watch the game last night on our new LED TV whilst safely ensconced in our home. Ronnie Brown was a monster and this LED technology is the real deal.
Memo to Chad Pennington: a TWO minute drill at the end of the game means a few things:
1) Hustle! Move fast. 2) When your two minutes are up and you are behind, you lose.
Pennington acted like it didn't matter.
Chinese Muslin Uighurs are a diverse ethnic group of Turkish origin. There are 13 Uighur Muslims being held at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. The US Supreme Court has scheduled a review of the Uighurs petition to be released during their first court conference on September 29, before the Court formally opens its session the following Monday.
We can't get a hearing before Federal Magistrate on a motion to suppress, but 13 Muslim Uighurs can get the US Supreme Court to consider their plight. Is this a great country or what?
We think the feedback on new Circuit Court Judges Yvonne Colodny and Migna Sanchez-Llorens has been mostly positive. What say you?
If you think (like we do) that Paul Giamatti is one of the best all around actors currently working, then go see Cold Souls. You will like it.
We like saying "Uighurs". It's kind of catchy. Try it.
Exactly why are State courts closed next Monday?
Yes we know it is the holiest day of the year for those who are observant Jews. But wouldn't the better option be to just liberally grant continuances because of the religious holiday for any lawyer who requested it?
These Mondays off throw the whole system into a tizzy.
The Courts in Dade are stretched to the maximum. Layoffs combined with increasing case loads have created more work with less time and people to do it. Every day should be utilized and there are enough people who don't celebrate the end of the High Holy days to allow those courts to stay open and go about their business.
Are the courts in Pahoke County, or Lee County, or Wakulla County, or Suwanee or Dixie counties closed as well?
Just a thought.
See You In Court.
