JUDGE BAGELY LOWERS THE HAMMER
On Aventura and its pesky video ticket system. "Unconstitutional"! Says the Judge.
We just have one question after perusing the article?
"Ticket Cricket"?? What the hell is that?
From the Broward blog comes all sorts of weird stuff about "The Juice Blog" being sued for these posts here and here.
From the JAA Blog:
Clouds in the coffee and lawyers in The Juice? - uh oh. Rumor has it The Juice blog may be sued over this post and this one. . We're told a request for retraction may be en route, after which a lawsuit may follow. Apparently, some pretty powerful feathers have been ruffled, over what people close to the parties swear are false accusations. All we can say is The Juice has it coming, since they really spit in the eye of decent, hardworking bloggers everywhere when they traced IP Addresses for a story. Ironic too, considering they work with the iconic Daily Pulp, whose Bob Norman, like JAABLOG, would go to jail before betraying a commentator's trust (not that we'd even know how to trace an IP Address - heck, we can't even figure outPhotoshop). In any event, we'll be watching this one closely, since it'll be interesting to see if litigation can determine exactly where those comments came from.
Rumpole says: Lets be clear about one thing. A journalist we are not. And outside of attorney/client privilege material, we ain't going to jail for nobody, especially for as something as stupid and insignificant as this blog. More power to the guys running the Broward Blog and Bob Norman, but don't expect us to do much more than buy you a cup of coffee if somehow you get into hot water with our humble blog.
JOES/JUDGE RONALD FRIEDMAN
Memo to Judge Ronald Friedman:
When you go to Joes on a busy Friday/Saturday night and you give your name, stick to Ronald Friedman. It's just so gauche to use "Judge" when trying to impress the Maitre'D and get seated quicker.
And it causes people waiting to frown. Appearance of impropriety and all that.
Just some friendly advice from your neighborhood blogger, who happens to have eyes and ears (and snitches) everywhere.
