OUT WITH THE OLD

Judicial rotation for the new year: Venzer, Eig, and Butchko to Civil.....

In with the new..........?????


Don't forget to watch the NBC Dateline's "Blind Justice" premiers tonight. The 2 hour news show is on the Christopher Sutton case. Bruce Fleisher for the defense. Stan Blake presiding. Carin Kahgan for the State.

Have a great weekend. Fins are in Green Bay and the Canes are in trouble.

i have to say that i watched Dateline tonight and i was blown away. i have been in this justice system for longer than i ever thought, but this is such a sad story. on one hand, it seems like the defendant planned this, but then again defense counsel did raise much doubt with regard to a lack of tangible evidence - no documents, no tape recordings and really only the testimony of a depraved killer - with the desire to avoid the death penalty. as usual, Judge Blake handled the case like a real judge - as opposed to a Seidlin or Ito, etc. VERY SAD ... as are all of the cases in the Justice Building.

Venzer is good if you are her age or older. She treats younger lawyers with contempt. Her judicial demeanor is lacking - she constantly makes faces at counsel seeming to say "are you serious?"
Its like god forbid we try to advocate for our clients.

2:57.......actually, Venzer is fine as long as you're professional. Some of us "old-timers" consider it unprofessional and insulting (not to mention a waste of everyone else's time) when lawyers make asinine arguments because they can't think of anything else to say.

It's funny how at 5:30 pm Venzer speaks of herself in the third person.

10:17.........I am not Venzer. You don't have to believe me, but you can use your common sense.

As I've said many, many times, long before anyone asked whether I am Venzer, I am a MD SAO former prosecutor. Venzer never prosecuted.

BDTD - I guess its insulting and unprofessional to tell a Judge that my client is innocent and wants a trial. Speaking of old versus young - its your old school crew (with Mastos leading the charge) that constantly hold up the line of us privates with bs arguments.
