The Chief Judge of Broward County resigned today effective June 30, 2011.
The Sun Sentinel article is here.
The Pulp coverage is here.
Tobin was one of those "old-boy network" Broward Judges who went out of his way, at least in dealing with us when he first got on the bench about 15 years ago, to treat us rudely and let us know in no uncertain terms that he did not like Miami lawyers coming to Broward County. Our sincere hope is that in private practice he encounters Judges who treat him just as he treated us. Karma.
Tobin will apparently be joining some foreclosure mill. Good luck with that.
Mike Walsh update: DOM reports that the federal trial that Mike Walsh missed a few weeks ago started up today and that Mike was present representing his client. We hope this means Mike is doing better and has things under control. Mike is a talented trial attorney and sometimes (and we have no idea what on earth is going on) that comes at a terrible price for an attorney's personal life.
See You In Court.
