What the chief judge did back then was the right thing to do. I just think that people (myself included)are sick of the gutter trash that make up much of today's society.
Hey Rump - you must be busy. You need to update posts more often for those of us with mundane, boring jobs who need the distraction.
Sorry- we aim to please. We exist just for you, right?
Nothing good coming out of the Gulf: Our favourite civil blog- the South Florida Lawyers has the depressing scoop here.
We got out of Broward alive yesterday. Barely. Judge was scowling at us more than normal. She might be on to something. How embarrassing would it be to be outed by Broward Judge.
David Markus reports that the 11th Circuit affirmed the conviction and sentence (life) in the Joe Cool case in an unsigned opinion without oral argument. Talk about not getting your day in court. As David notes, it's a life sentence- that should merit at least oral argument.
Here's an interesting fact pattern- lets see what you can make of it:
Judge awards law firm $350,000.00 in legal fees.
Judge gets caught canoodling with a prosecutor trying a death penalty case before her.
Judge gets JQC complaint.
Judge gets hired by law firm she previously awarded 350K to.
The Daily Pulp has all the dirty details in the latest twist and turns in the soon to be former Judge Ana Gardiner saga.
There's even more dirty details like the Defense lawyer who received the legal fees representing the Plaintiff's counsel in an unrelated malpractice case.
From the Plaintiff who owes the money:
Meanwhile, she just learned that at the same time that Tripp Scott was representing her in that case, Cole was representing Tripp Scott in a malpractice case. "I think they should have at least notified me of that," said Coleman. "I'm beginning to feel like everybody was in bed together except me."
That's how we feel every time we walk down the "hallway to hell" and into a courtroom North of the Border.
See you in court.
