Today is a travel day for us, so until we land, unless the wifi is working on the plane, here is a quick update:
Judge Reemeberto Diaz, who still could care less about what a county court judge thinks, is presiding over the re-trial in the tragic "Baby Lollipops" homicide. A jury was selected Thursday. Updates as this trial progresses.
And Judge Jacqueline "The Terminator" Schwartz is rotating down from North Dade Justice Center (Motto: leave us alone") to take over the County Court spot of Judge Joe Fernandez who is moving to Judge Soto's division in Circuit Court. They tell us that they call Judge Schwartz "The Terminator" for her ability to move a calendar and get rid of cases. But we quickly admit this is double or triple hearsay at best- meaning it's good enough for a conviction in Federal Court, but otherwise not reliable.
ERRATUM: several alert readers have informed us that Judge Jacqueline Schwartz will be re-locating from the Coral Gables courthouse, of which everyone knows their motto is "Don't bother us while we're at lunch at Christys." Sorry for the inconvenience, but as we have said before, what the hell do we know about county court? Obviously not much.
That's it for now.
See You in the Magic City.
