The Republican convention in Tampa. *yawn*. There hasn't been a really good convention since the Republican 1980 convention when Reagan and Ford were negotiating in Michigan for a co-presidency "dream ticket." That was a great convention to be a delegate at.

George Zimmerman wins in the 5th DCA on his motion to disqualify the trial judge. Lesson: a judge should not encourage the prosecution to file additional charges:
GEORGE COSTANZA, J, CONCURS:
The South Florida blogger ably covers the civil decisions of the 3rd DCA, and on Wednesday he specifically covered this decision on a foreclosure fifteen years in the making, and Judge Schwartz's reluctant concurrence. But he failed to report on the final line: "As someone – probably either St. Thomas More or George Costanza – must have said, the law is the law. Notwithstanding the distasteful consequences of applying it in this case, it must be served."
One thing you can say about George Costanza, he was master of his domain. He won a contest. And in another context, Judge Schwartz is clearly the master of his domain (the sharply, smartly worded concurrence/dissent).
Labor day weekend coming up. August will soon be over, thankfully.
See You In Court.
