Candidates De La O and Kopko are currently homeless, election wise.

We'll get to the Colonel of County Court in a moment, but first, courtesy of the Broward JAA Blog, comes this disturbing video where a defendant batters by expectoration, an ASA and a clerk in Broward. The spittle comes flying at the 8, 9, and 12 second mark.
When this individual is prosecuted for battery on a law enforcement officer (which ASAs are) it might be a nice gesture if a Dade ASA and someone from the Miami FACDL went to court in show of support for our colleague who was attacked.
REPORT FROM COUNTY COURT.
Prosecutors, patrons, police officers, and private attorneys were all greeted at the door of each and every county court courtroom with a written message from Chief Judge Sam Slom extolling the virtues of the new "no sounding" system to the extent that so many traffic cases are being closed that there is no need for the annual spring "Slom-athon" which is otherwise known as a Traffic Blitz.
For those of you who need a little brushing up in county court lingo, a traffic blitz was a week where there were no DUIs or crime cases set and every judge set hundreds of DWLS, NVDLs, LSAs and other traffic cases every day in an effort to reduce the backlog. And as Rumpole has reported in the past, the intensive work usually paid off, as a dozen or more cases were closed after inconveniencing thousands of clients, and many officers, private lawyers, and ASAs.
So no Blitz this year. But there's always next year.
And remember, there's gold in dem dere misdemeanors.
