ON THE OUTSIDE...LOOKING IN
UPDATE: WARD IS ROC'IN AND ROLLING. JUDGE WARD TO ROC COURT.
That's where the inhabitants of the REGJB will be when the 11th circuit gets around to electronic filing.
The Feds have electronic filing, and it actually works very well. Everything is on line and accessible.
And now that the 11th Circuit (Motto "Better late than never") is considering electronic filing, the first five divisions to get the system will all be in civil court.
Follow the money.
But what can Brown do for you? Why he said the other day at the FACDL Board meeting that he was considering lifting the ban on beepers in the building!!! Won't that make our life better?
Also he encouraged the FACDL to put more typewriters in the attorney's room so attorneys can bang out last minute motions. What a guy! The white-out is on him.
He also said he was thinking of giving defense attorneys access to something called "SPIRIT".
It has to do with traffic and county court. We think. Either that, or it has lascivious pictures of cheerleaders on line.
Judge Lopez is leaving ROC court and heading to civil. And who will replace him? We hear the infighting has been fast, furious, and vicious, with the email equivalent of elbows being thrown.
Judge Ward wants it. So do several others. Judge Diaz passed and will be going to family or civil. One Judge even promised to hold Arthur hearings within the first year of the arraignment if s/he was assigned to ROC court. WOW!
Of the five names that went to Governor Crist, Judge Brown confirmed that the eventual Circuit Court Judge will (be sentenced) assigned to the REGJB. Dopey, Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Doc and Clarence Thomas are all in the running.
Second week of the NFL coming up. Don't forget your suicide picks are sent to blogpool21 at gmail.com and go Fins as they travel to Minnesota, don cha know.
