NIXON RESIGNS! DEWEY BEATS TRUMAN!
From the JAA Broward Blog yesterday:
– a bailiff was caught scurrying away earlier this morning with what looks to be some of personal belongings in an archive box, including an FSU football. When asked a few minutes later whether Imperato was indeed calling it quits, her JA said she was “undecided“. We’ll be following up with the chief judge and Tallahassee shortly …
Rumpole says: Good riddance. This judge was a nasty, sarcastic, impatient jurist who pandered to police officers. We had a memorable motion to suppress in front of her, during which she spent the entire time chatting with her clerk, snickering and passing notes to the clerk, and rolling her eyes and playing to the other police officers who were in the courtroom for another case. Our client said "I can't believe this is happening to me in a courtroom in the United States." So, no great loss to the bench or the cause of justice. Karma.
Just think about this: if ten months ago we told you Bernie sanders, a 74 year old, cranky socialist and former mayor of Burlington, Vermont would WIN the democratic primary in New Hampshire, you would have called us crazy.
If we further told you that a reality TV crass buffoon named Donald Trump would win the Republican primary, you would have called us nuts.
If we told you Sanders and Trump would both win their respective primaries, you would have told us to call you when we sober up.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
See You In Court.
