No. Not this blog. 

The Broward Blog. 

Ana Gardiner. 

Bill Geilin. 

Mean, nasty comments, sexual innuendo, bar briefs, a recommendation for disbarment;  a total free for all. And throw in a whistle blower on a death penalty case, just for fun, in a county no defendant and no sane lawyer ever wants to find themselves in. 

Everything we strive not to be. Really. 

It's all here. 

See you in court.

I like and admire what Bill Geiln has accomplished in Broward. After all, his blog brought down Dale Ross as chief judge. But I have never understood and have never agreed with his decision to not monitor comments on his blog. The level of extreme nastiness is so discomforting that I could never- even anonymously- be associated with a project that hurt so many people. And make no mistake- from baseless and anonymous accusations of infidelity, to complete character assassination, all done from the darkness of anonymous comments, the Broward blog comments have truly hurt many people. Sad.

Broward is severely fucked up.

I just read the brief for Gardiner. The statement of facts are as poorly written and disjointed and nearly incomprehensible as anything I have ever seen. I would fail any law student for such a brief and reject it from any associate who attempted to file in on behalf of a client. Astounding.

Also, while I feel for Gardiner, a little, I can just see her smirking attitude that she would give any defendant in her court who offered up the same excuses- depression, a life out of control, humiliation, etc. One could not believe, based on having appeared before her, that she would not consider for even the barest moment, such a line of excuses before sending a litigant who dared to go to trial and lost, to prison for a near maximum or maximum term.
It's called Karma. And sometimes it sucks.

Brief is absolutely incoherent and unpersuasive. She makes two major points: all these highly credentialed persons say great things about me and I was depressed.These cannot overcome the harm to the system created by her conduct. The Supremes already upped Sheinberg's punishment. Bar will win this one.

That was one of the most poorly written briefs I have ever read.
The first 20 pages are just summarizing what witnesses said.

Has the author never heard of paragraphs or spacing?

Granted, CNN on-line articles usually have paragraphs of one to two sentences, but legal briefs usually have some semblance of real writing. It looks like the author was trying to cram as much text as possible onto each page, regardless of whether it would help the case.

When you represent lawyers and judges for free, you let them write the brief and you sign it.

Ana never was a very good lawyer or a very good judge.

She made us all look bad. She should be disbarred!
