Happy Birthday, Six & Counting

JUROR ARRESTED FOR THEFT! (This is why we started the blog). David Ovalle has all the details here as a juror who was going through security snapped up a Mac Lap top. Surprisingly good police work solved the "Case of the pilfered 'puter" in record time.





HAPPY BIRTHDAY




JUSTICE BUILDING BLOG







Congratulations to Horace on his 6th Birthday as Administrator of the Justice Building Blog. And with due deference to South Florida Lawyers, Southern District of Florida, and the Broward Blogs, we here would like to say that your BLOG is Number One in our book.

Don't know if you'll be around for another six years, but many of your loyal readers and posters will stick with you for as long as you are willing and able to continue with your fine administration of the BLOG.


On a lighter note:


The Captain Reports:

As mentioned by one of our loyal readers, attorney Miguel de la O, who filed many moons ago for an open Circuit Court seat in Group 42, now has an opponent. That opponent is attorney Greer Elaine Davis Wallace, a solo practitioner with an office in Florida City, she specializes in family law and has been practicing since 1979.

Greer Wallace is the wife of longtime Mayor of Florida City, Otis Wallace, who served as an assistant Public Defender in Dade County in the late 70s.

The Most Honorable Chief Justice Hirsch is facing reversal of his Shelton cases. Good going!
See Little v. State from the Third today.

Sure, happy b-day Justice Building Blog. But if you continue with the stupid posts about Q, Shumie, Angry Girl, Fake (fill in the name of a judge or defense attorney), etc, you might not get to birthday number seven. The blog becomes less relevant with every one of those idiotic posts.

Thank you EL Capitan. I generally avoid birthdays.

Seen today tres casual is our own fop K.Weisman. Sporting a Gucci blazer over a white polo, KW glided through the courthouse with rakiish aplomb. Adding icing to this Lebanese Lothario's ensemble were the skinny french blue jeans and the Tods penny loafers.

No shave necessary for the Fresh Prince of South Pointe.

Greer Wallace is a really nice woman who does family law and is married to former PD Otis Wallace, now mayor of Florida City.Otis was a PD in the late 70's and early 80's.

She has an excellent reputation.

We cannot say the same for De la O.

1:09- do you understand the difference between a post and a comment? Apparently not. Let me clue you in:

I write the posts.
Readers write the comments.

Capish?

There is a significant risk of late graft failure in AA following allogeneic BMT possibly associated with discontinuing CSA early. Late graft failure may follow progressive mixed chimerism, defined by > 10% recipient cells or > 15% increase over 3 months; rarely is late graft failure hidden by autologous reconstitution.9,10 Stable mixed chimerism is associated with excellent survival and a low risk of chronic GVHD.

De la o does not have a good reputation? I disagree. He is smart and and gentleman. I have no clue who is opposing him. She has no rep. Plus she has zero chance of winning.

I'm not 1:09, but I often comment here on your blog.  

I thank you for clarifying the difference between a post and a comment. I must have used them interchangeably a hundred times here.  I see why it is important to use the correct terminology, to avoid confusion.  I'll try keeping them straight from now on.

Please ignore people like 1:09.  Predicting the downfall of the blog seems a favorite past time for some of the readers.   As I had previously stated in a comment, this blog serves a great need.  Not everything in our lives is law and REG politics.  Some levity is essential to keep us from losing our minds.   I, for one am happy you are here, and continue to read even when I'm not in on the joke.

Greer needs to add a Rodriguez, Perez or some Spanish slang to that name to beat "Miguel" ...

Now who is going to challenge County Judge Gladys Perez?

I wonder how the 3rd DCA could kill Milt's order without a single reference to Shakespeare or Bible?

in order to addrsss rumors that are running rampant, we have decided to issues a statament:

1) at the end of October 2010 two pds and three asas were discussing how they had no money for the holidays. Eventually the group included another pd and three defense attorneys all under the age of 30.

2) we formed an investment club. Over a period of a few months we each contributed $3,000,00 for a total of $27,000.00. We opened An account with on online trading company.

3) despite our mutual dislike of the blog shumie time nonsense we formed a corporation "shumie time investment club". We are not incorporated in Florida, but in the home state of one of our members for obscure tax reasons. One of us has an llm in tax law.

4) it is true one of us has an uncle and brother who run a hedge fund in Connecticut. We categorically deny any allegattions of insider trading.

5) folowing a somewhat traditional method of investing 40% long term growth 10% option trading 20% day trading and 30% in cash or short term equity instruments, we have done very well. As of the end of October we had over $166,000.00 in our account and have authorized distributions of $11,000.00 per member. We will start next year with over 66,000.00 in capital to invest.

We will consider non-voting members who wish to buy in with A payment of $3,000.00 to club members and an initial investment of a minimum of $5,0000.00. The shares of the non-voting members will be pro-rated to the vLue of our fund on the close of business. To make it easy, if someone paid us $8,000.00, $3,000.00 would bebthe admission fee and distributed to the members. If the fund was vaued at $1000,000 the new member would share in 5% of the profits from that day although the new members have no say how their money is invested and can only redeem their shares between November 1 and December 31 of any year.

OMG i find any of tthose guys sexy. I am so attracted to men who can make money like that.

Regarding 2:03 investments:

I have devised my own investment plan that produces returns much greater than the one you have outlined. See below.

2 light controllers at $620 each

2 delay timers $80 each.

4 1000 watt Quantum lighting systems $350 each

1 humidity climate controller $80

Drip irrigation system (Various hoses, clamps,etc.) $100

10 nursery pots - $15

Biobizz growing medium $200

Mylar Wall covering $100

Humbolt County Seed (Trinity Kush) $85

As you can see, for approximately the same initial investment, my "hedge" fund of 12 plants will produce quarterly revenues of approximately $130,000. After associated expenses for rent, electricity, water, and personnel, profit will be in excess of $400,000 yearly.

Any interested investors may join as non voting shareholders for the same $3,000 entry fee plus set up costs.. Prospective investors should leave their buy in at the corner of West Avenue and 10 street on Miami Beach. There is a garbage receptacle on the corner at Starbucks. Place funds in ($20 bills) in brown paper bag under the garbage receptacle after 11:00 pm

Wait by your cell phone for a call from Diego.

I know Greer Wallace too. Nice lady. Very polite.

I have litigated against De la O and he took some rather rediculous positions and was not nice to anyone. I must admit, he did a good job but, could have done so without all the attitude.

" Some levity is essential to keep us from losing our minds. "

I agree completely.

It's just too bad that the single individual who posts all of the Shumie, Q, and Fake stuff - and I'm sure it is only one guy - is apparently incapable of producing anything approaching wit, humor or intelligence.

Hey Rump, I am in manhattan for a case in the southern district. I am staying in a small hotel that abutts Columbus park. The 1% Protest is a rediculous shit show! There are about 500 weirdos and granola heads, surrounded by about a thousand newsies and every cop in NY , helicopters, horses, and a blimp. The locals in true NY style are ignoring the whole thing as if it didn't exist . But the reporters are in a total frenzy and are interviewing each other if the can't find a passer-by or vagrant to talk to. What a joke! Jason Grey

They never change. I've represented the laptop stealer before. County employee too.

Regardless of what you guys think about De la O, he has a great last name.

Anonymous said...

Me too. I too am glad someone is not going to allow De la O to run unopposed.

I had a "run in" with him years ago and was not impressed with his judgment.

Anonymous said...

De La O is someone who is nothing but tries to act like someone. He is a rude, unprofessional, demeaning jerk whose only claim to fame is trying to ruin law student's lives. I litigated against him and on the verge of defeat he used his infamous law student committee to avoid a judgment since my client was leaving the country. He doesn't play fair and should be defeated.
