SECURITY: Apparently there is still some confusion on the security IDS:
there has been numerous requests on the blog for information on renewing the REGJB Security IDs. Please share the following email with your readers.
SECURITY ID INFORMATION
If you have previously been issued a card which has expired, or took your picture but never picked up a card, then your new card has already been printed and is available for pick-up at the AOC Human Resources Office at the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse, through without the need to make an appointment. When going to pick up your new ID card, you will be required to the following:
- The cardholder and only the cardholder, must bring and sign the attached 'Security ID Acknowledgement Form'.
- The cardholder must bring a printout from the Florida Bar website indicating that they are currently a ‘Member in Good Standing’ (use this link, enter your name, print).
- The cardholder must bring a check or money order made payable to 'Miami-Dade County' in the amount of $10.00.
- The cardholder must surrender their old ID card (if the old ID has been lost, make that check for $20 instead).
NOTE: If you previously applied for an ID and were approved, but you never went to have a picture taken, then you can’t just show up, instead you must call (305) 349-7351 to make an appointment to sit for your picture.
Your friendly neighborhood PD and FACDL guy Brian Kirlew sent the email and has all the info you need to avoid those long line.
Planet Hillary: She's already running. Time to get out those old email addresses for Hugh Rodham. For those of you who don't know, Hillary's brother was a PD right here in Dade County. And so was his brother Tony for a short time.
Remembering Richard Sharpstein and the tragic way he ended his life, this CNN report asks why lawyers are killing themselves? The article has some scary tales, but also this sop: "Lawyers are prone to depression." Really? Stop the presses!
Roy Black, he of Bieber fame, has an audio of a Richard Sharpstein closing argument on his blog here. Richard was truly a performer at heart.
