CODE BROWN!!

SPENCER-JONES TRIAL UPDATE: The conclusion of the trial has been delayed until Monday as ASA Richard Scruggs has been hospitalized. No word on his condition.

SPY CAM- this was the scene of confusion and mild affray this morning outside of our venerable courthouse. Also visible: several characters loitering and/or prowling.



1:15 PM UPDATE: THE ALL CLEAR SIREN SOUNDED AND THE REGJB IS NOW OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

No gun was found however the following contraband was recovered:

14 unauthorized nail clippers;
1- "Al Sepe For Judge" bumper sticker, circa 1978;
1 book- The Collected Wit and Wisdom of Judge Henry Fero-paperback Penguin edition;
19 frozen Venison sausages;
6 Bottles of various liquor including JWBlack;
1 Administrative Order from Chief Judge Gerald Weatherington advising Judges against confiscating beepers;
3 Robes coloured Green, Blue and Orange with the label "Property of Judge Alfred Nesbitt"

And so on....

Advertisement: Today's Code Brown was proudly sponsored by your local hot-dog vendor. The next time you are stuck outside of the REGJB remember to visit your favorite hot dog vendor and enjoy a refreshing beverage while enjoying your favorite snack.

BREAKING THURSDAY MORNING 10:AM ish.

THERE IS A CODE BROWN AT THE REGJB

THE BUILDING IS SHUT DOWN.

Code Brown means either Judge Brown is handling a calendar OR

A SERIOUS SECURITY BREACH.

Rumor has it that the security screeners let in a person with a firearm.
The Firearm was in a purse.
Security did however properly stop several people who were wearing belts.

Yes court police officer grabbed my purse began searching and then politely asked if I was okay with her searching my bag

OMG

If they know the person had a gun, why did they not stop the person?

Am I missing something here?

House kills plan for drug monitoring database.
Before the vote to eliminate the database, the committee passed a bill that would prohibit doctors from prescribing [ directly providing?]narcotics, making the drugs largely available only at pharmacies. The bill also would eliminate registration and inspection of pain clinics, and a ban on felons owning pain clinics.

Some pill mill operators already have pharmacies in their clinics, and others could open pharmacies or create partnerships with existing pharmacies.

I don't understand why that was a Code Brown. It should be called a Code Hirsch. Judge Brown is just the chief judge of the 11th circuit of Florida but the Most Right Honourable Milton Hirsch is the Superlative Chiefmost Justice of the United States, therefore, he has the undisputable right to name the codes after his very own name.

This was nothing but a diversion to temporarily halt the ass raping that Scruggs is getting in 4-1.

also found was a mirror belonging to Flora Seff proclaiming that she in the prettiest and smartest person ever to step foot into the building.

When you have to take your belt off to go to court, you live in a fascist police state.

I truly love and respect David Sisselman but for the love of Christ, somebody needs to teach that man how to spell.

Scruggs is getting his ass kicked so bad he's gone to hospital. I'd cry sick too if I was in his shoes!

I'm a pretty funny guy, but don't find these funny. This is in fact is a very scary and sad incident.

the trialmaster said...

also found was as old mirror in former judge gelber's chambers with cocaine residue on it, with a note from x judge davis giving it to Roy as a christmas gift.

Anonymous said...

oh, my. Court employees hanging out outside waiting in the sun. Judges took refuge in their chambers under the false assumption that they'll be safe. What everyone fails to realize is that if there was a gun smuggled in the courthouse, the crook may have hidden it today and come back for it any day he/she wishes. I'll be watching my back (and front) this whole month.

Anonymous said...

... at least the Code Brown was not from a Judge shooting their gun in the Justice Building! Remember Judge Nancy Pollack accidentally fired her .38 in chambers on the 1st floor back in the mid 90's? At least Judges Gelber, Sepe, Davis and Shenberg never shot their weapons in the courthouse....

THE NEXT JUDGES IN CIRCUIT COURT AFTER INTERVIEWS TODAY? EITHER:

- JUDGE ROSA FIGAROLA (POSSIBLY #1 CHOICE)
- JUDGE VICKIE BRENNAN (GOOD CHOICE)
- JUDGE LISA WALSH (GREAT CHOICE - SMART/NICE)
- MIKE HANZMAN (BEST CHOICE - SMARTER THAN
MR. JUSTICE MILTON H.)

THESE ARE THE "SHORT LIST" FOR @ VACANCIES AFTER TODAY WITH THE GOVERNOR.

The Spence-Jones trial is the picture of civility. Three sidebars in three weeks. Not a lot of discontent.

I'm sorry that Mr. Scruggs is of frail health and wish him a speedy recovery.

Judge RR and Mr. Raben have been extremely polite with no raised voices.

What happened with the lady and the gun- still don't get it, how could they see a gun and not catch the person?

Anonymous said...

Well, it seems that there is a small pissing war between the court administrators, police and court security about who was in charge of the public during the code brown.

Leave the gun, take the pasteletos.
