How was your holiday weekend? Did the rain get you down? We managed to get some rest and eat a Chicago style dog or two, and now we're raring to go.
Karma is a funny thing sometimes, and other times it is tragic. Here is a sad story of a motorcyclist who died when he hit is head in an accident in a ride protesting- you guessed it- New York State;s law requiring motorcyclists to wear helmets.
What's not funny sometimes is crime. This shocking incident shook us to our core. We have immediately reached out to the poor victim to offer her comfort and whatever help she may need. Sometimes a person just has to stop being a spectator and jump in and help. This case pushed us over the edge.
That big hullabaloo trial in Orlando is nearly over. We could care less and don't look here for updates on the verdict. And when we write we could care less what that means is that coverage of this trial is way over blown. A young child is dead and that bothers us greatly. These morons who are getting paid to feast on TV over this tragedy and speculate as if they are some sort of expert make us ill.
Those who can try cases do try cases. Those who can't try cases like to talk about trying cases. They should be ashamed to show their faces in public, after we have all seen them desperately clawing for TV time and publicity over the body of this dead child. And that's the last you will hear us speak about this case and those phony creeps.
Two weird things happened in Broweird over the holiday weekend.
1) Traffic Magistrate Rhonda Hollander was arrested on felony charges for what the JAA Blog calls "a bizarro" incident.
2) Bob Norman has the info on a Broweird ASA (Corey Ackerman) suspended over his prior conduct at RRA (Scott Rothstein's old firm).
Dog bites man (yawn). Judges in NY are leaving the bench to get more money. (Yawn). They don't feel appreciated. Poor things.
Here we are right in the middle of summer and our chief judges still refuse to recognize that the rest of the civilized southern legal establishment (and also Broward County) puts a summer dress code into effect that allows all lawyers (not just female lawyers) to appear in court for routine matters sans tie.
But not here in Dade County. No, here in Dade County our chief judges still expect male attorneys to dress as if it is the middle of January in Minnesota- (which is still shut down by the way)- with a coat and a tie. And by the way, this rant extends to our Chief Judge for the federal courts in the southern district. He doesn't get a pass.
See you in court.
