It would be a major change to have Judge Bloom's division taken over by a judge who is new to the bench. Her replacement may come from Domestic, Civil or one of the Branch courts. As long as it is someone with trial experience, a good disposition and treatseveryone with respect and equally fair.

Rumpy, you are wrong about the Heat! They are going to go all the way this year!

11:06- I was at the game and my thoughts are these:

1-for all their hype, they couldn't even lay 100 on Orlando.

2-Only one stretch of decent defense in the third quarter saved their butt.

3- Their coach's rotation, moving out Lebron and Wade and leaving Bosch has the team confused. Because players who have been repeatedly told they don't need to score all of the sudden need to score.

This is a poorly coached team. The chant in Boston a the opening of the season seems to ring true: Overrated.

Rump- this Bloom thing is a total disaster for me in the County Court Fantasy league (formerly the DUI fantasy league). Bloom was my leading point getter. I am headed towards the playoffs and now this!!! Help.

FCCL Commissioner said...

The Fantasy DUI league has been renamed the Fantasy County Court League. We have adopted the near universal California Misdemeanor Scoring System CMSS- developed by California PD Big Bob Walsorsky.

The CMSS system, while favoring DUI trials, counts all trials, weighing jury trials over bench trials. Motions to suppress that are granted as well as motions to dismiss are also heavily weighted. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the system is the negative weight attached to continuances. This is why Bloom was such a consistently high scorer in the CMSS.

Under our local league rules, a player who loses a judge due to incapacity, illness, resignation, or promotion is entitled to request four players to chose one of their three judges to be placed in a pool. The computer then randomly selects a judge as a replacement. However, there is an exception if the player is in first or second place, which Low Sample Volume is. In this instance, the player must play one of their back up judges and will not be eligible for a replacement judge until the player drops out of first or second.

As there is another four trial weeks left until the playoffs, I as commissioner have invoked this procedure. Accordingly, LSV will play on, using his back up judge.

We've dealt with this situation a lot lately with Arzola and Fernandez and Seff leaving the bench is also on the horizon. But the league plays on.

Rump,

If you were at the game than you have exposed yourself (at least to me).

It's ok. Secret is safe with me. It was nice of you to take your wife to the game.

FCCL Commish,

Hilarious.

The Heat played a great defensive game, they did the same thing to Orlando that Boston and LA did in the playoffs the last two years...turned the Magic into a 1 dimensional team...The Heat right now are the 3rd best team in the league, they are also the most athletic and durable team in the league, the 30+ players in this league better be on notice, get in our way and you will get hurt....just ask Vince and Paul....by May they have a very good chance of being the best team and winning it all...it's too soon to say that right now but it's definitely not too soon for a long time reader and first time poster to say, stick to Football and the legal stuff, your Basketball analysis stinks....

Milton Hirsch a judge - now that is really scary.

Anonymous said...

Fyi. Brennan or Gayles will take the REG spot that Bloom left open. More than likely it will be Brennan since Gayles already picked Seff's Division. Wolfson will be headed to DV and Gonzalez Paulson will slip into Criminal at SDJC while Davis slides into Civil at SDJC. That will leave the Hialeah slot and NDJC slot open. TBD!

Milt is going to be a very good judge. He will expect lawyers to be prepared. He will not knuckle under to every 27-year-old ASA who walks in the room. He's also not going to be impressed by any big deal defense attorney. And nobody knows 4th A law like he does -- and won't be afraid to suppress evidence.

You may not like him because he sometimes acts like the smartest kid in class. I forgive him because he usually is -- and I'm not worried he's going to find me unprepared in court.

When you hold your opponent to 70, 71 is all you need. 100 would've been a waste of energy and risking further injury. No team really needs to hold its opponent to 10 or 15 points in more than one quarter. That should really do it. As Boston did to Miami. Are the Celtics overrated because they didn't hold Miami to 36 points for the night? (9pts x 4qtrs).


You're obviously the disappointed fan of a team that couldn't get Lebron or Wade or some other free agent and you've taken to Heat-bashing as a way of venting your anger while "appearing" to be a knowledgeable analyst. BS on you.

Let's see, take Wade and James out of the lineup and the team appears "lost." Are you nuts? What they looked like was a team coasting to a win, 20+ points up, with two of the three or four best players on the planet sitting on the bench instead of trying to score 100. Stick to football.

Firtel back to REGJB? That IS scary.

Anonymous said...

Firtel is the male Zabel - super nice to everyone, shows up late for court, won't get involved in any pleas and doesn't want to do trials.

Hirsch will be just like Emas - cocky and conceited but knowledgeable enough to actually
run an efficient courtroom.

Brennan is the most arrogant, most know-it-all, C+ brain to ever hit the court system. And, she thinks she is really smart. What a disaster if she goes to REG. She can probably do a lot less damage where she is.

4:29:00 pm. Are you kidding me? Milt even has you fooled. He is a deceiver and will play favorites. He is a dishonest attorney and will be a dishonest judge.

Anonymous said...

MilT Will be nothing like emas- emas and milT are NOTHING alike. EmaS would be insulted at that remark

Anonymous said...

Are you kidding - Emas and Milt are both blowhards who think they are the smartest and brightest lawyers around. They may not be exactly alike but they are similar at least in respect to their inflated sense of self.

venzer in civil will rock.

Anonymous said...

Emas and Milt are both rather similar. Both bright. Both know the law. Both think their shit does not stink and both can be rather pushy.

I did not like the way Keven Emas pushed people around.

It is yet to be seen how Milty will handle his courtroom but, we know he will not get lost in difficult cases and we will now get circuit court appeals opinions that quote Cesar, the Pope, the Shakespeare.

Oh boy, I can't wait.

Anonymous said...

It is interesting that Emas is somewhat reverred on this blog for his intelligence and obvious liberal interpretation of certain matters, despite being one of the most arrogant and rude members of the bench. The truth is that Milt will be more transparent in his disdain for lawyers who appear in front of him and will have a difficult time with the practical approach of being a judge. That will expose what we all know, he is supremely arrogant, intolerant and intemperate.

Gee, sounds like a couple of other judges you all suceeded in getting defeated at the polls. Is it because they are former defense attorneys that somehow they are okay where others were not? Hmmm. Food for thought.
