MORE BREAKING NEWS: It has been rumored for a few months now that the first casualty of the new plan that would cut judges salaries by 30% would be the resignation of Judge Izzy Reyes. We now believe that is official. Judge Reyes will be leaving for a job in the private sector shortly.
We lose an experienced and dedicated jurist today because we get the quality of judges that we pay for.
Oh What A Night! All Judges leaving the bench for the lucrative private sector would be well advised to avoid the night had by one Marc Gold, Esq., who according to South Florida Lawyers, has sued the Gentlemen's Establishment Gold Rush for a night that cost him over 18 grand on his credit card. And the worst part is, according to the complaint, he is doesn't remember most of it!
Rumpole says, if you're going to rack up 18 grand in the champagne room, you should at least get a few memories out of the deal.
BREAKING NEWS: A ROY T GELBER UPDATE! :
Long time denizens of the REGJB remember former Judge Roy T. Gelber. He was indicted in the Courtbroom scandal and ended up testifying for the government against fellow Judges Sepe, Schenberg, Goodhart, et. al. Gelber served a lengthy prison sentence and was released back to our community. Apparently to offend again.
Now comes word from a Miami Herald article that the former Judge who once tried to use bankruptcy to get out of his law school loans is implicated in an airplane parts ponzi scheme.
And to think that an ASA a long time ago once got a conviction reversed when she told a jury that a Tiger doesn't change his stripes. (Bonus points if you get the name of the former ASA correct.)
Like a bad penny, Roy T Gelber keeps turning up at the scenes of crimes in South Florida.

"Rumpole went to the Pharoah Brown and said 'LET THE ATTORNEYS PARK.'.
But the Pharoah's heart was hardened and even now, after two blog posts, he did not let the attorneys park."
