YOUR NEXT COUNTY COURT JUDGE
will be from this group the JNC (Motto:"A little juice never hurts") just forwarded to Governor Scott.
Robert Coppel; Jason Dimitris; Steve Lieberman, Jonathan Meltz; Michelle Delancy; Sandra Miller-Batiste.
Our vote: PD Rob Coppel. He ran a great campaign against Judge Verde last August and is a deserving and experienced choice. And a nice guy to boot. The pick replaces Judge Hendon who was elevated to Circuit Court recently.
In having spent more than a quarter century in courts, we've almost seen it all. But not this. Russia is about to prosecute a dead man. The NY Times reported here that "Russia took the unusual step on Monday of attempting to put a dead man on trial, when it tried to open posthumous proceedings against Sergei L. Magnitsky, the whistle-blowing lawyer who died three years ago in a Moscow jail cell. The effort to prosecute Mr. Magnitsky, which was postponed when Mr. Magnitsky’s legal team refused to participate, stoked tensions in a case that has already damaged Russia’s image abroad and strained relations with the United States."
First Pussy Riot and now this. We gotta get to Russia.
