TERRY SULLIVAN, JA, HAS PASSED AWAY

The comments section yesterday had several comments that Terry Sullivan, a Judicial Assistant to various judges over the years (Sepe, Blake, Colby) has passed away. 

Is there a more underpaid and often under appreciated  group of individuals in the State Court system than Judicial Assistants? 

FRIEND JUDGE COLODNY

Derek Medina, F13-18474, the so called "Facebook Killer" has an appearance Friday before Judge Colodny. No defense attorney appears of record as yet. 

HUMAN TRAFFICKING SEMINAR: Seems to be a very worthwhile project for some pro bono hours. 




72 DOLPHINS GO TO WHITE HOUSE:

40 years after going undefeated, the 1972 Dolphins are going to the White House next Tuesday. Czonka, Griese, Merc, all your favourites will be there. 
At the time, it was not de rigueur  for all championship teams to visit the White House. Plus, as everybody knows, Richard Milhous Nixon was a Redskins fan. 

See You In Court.

Has any one been into Judge Verdes courtroom and had to deal with the division chief? This guy is three fries short of a happy meal. Bat shit crazy.

When I was assigned to Judge Blake's division as an ASA, seeing Terry every morning was nothing short of joy. We would frequently chat as I got coffee or water, or needed copies of something. She was a very kind, sweet woman whom I always looked forward to seeing. May she Rest In Peace.

Agreed. Verde's DC is off the wall. Who promoted him???

From what people have said about the way Sepe treated Terry, I am so glad she wound up with Judge Blake. She deserved a kind man with a sense of humor. She was a lovely sweet person and I hope there is room in heaven for her pig collection! RIP Terry. You so deserve it.

Verde's DC definately has mental problems-have you ever heard his high pitched voice when he is mad-sounds like a fish wife.But at least Verde can balance him out and ignore his rantings. Can you imagine if he was in Rebull's division?

Who is the DC?

Before Terry had a pig collection with Stan Blake, she had a frog collection with Gene Williams at the DCCH.

When did she work for Sepe? He left in 1991 after the FBI raided his office. I remember a cute Hisoanic girl as his JA.

I remember Terry from when I practiced at "Master Calendar" before J Williams, and renewed that happy acquaintance when she worked for J. Blake; I was tickled by noting that the Herald story outed her posthumously as a source for news from the GJB.
I noticed that the Herald obit did not have a service, or name a funeral home, or give with other contact info. Does anyone have any name and address for Terry's family? I would like to make a donation to the Miami-Dade County Law Library in her memory. A response with any info to FACDL-Miami's listserv will get to me, and would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
