WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN II?
We received an email from a Judge. Can you tell who wrote it? Play for valuable prizes. We'll post the answer with a surprise tomorrow.
Rumpole: these are dangerous words. Yet they reveal feelings that run deep. And since the facts support the sentiments that the article expresses, this must be discussed. Why is every African-American judge who was up for re-election this year in Broward challenged? Why was Circuit Judge Elijah Williams, who is a good a judge as you will ever come across challenged? You may remember Judge Williams spectacular resignation from Chief Judge Dale Ross's Diversity Committee, which we reported here, and in which Judge Williams famously stated "he would no longer carry the white man's water." You will also recall that Judge Williams donates a portion of his judicial salary to charitable organizations in Fort Lauderdale.
All in all the situation in Broward stinks to high hell. One way to address this matter is for lawyers in Dade who care about the judiciary to financially support those Judges in Broward like Elijah Williams who should never have received opposition.
Yes, you read that right. Rumpole is advocating on behalf of some Broward Judges.
And you thought you had seen everything.
