JUDGE GIL FREEMAN RETIRES

Judge Gil Freeman had a retirement party this week. There was food, fun, frivolity, friendship and a good time had by all. 

Judge Freeman made a brief appearance in the REGJB as a "newish" judge and then repaired to Civil and Family  and other areas where she spent her career adjudicating summary judgment motions on debentured bond defaults and splitting the precious family lamp, table, couch and cat. 

She enjoyed a very fine reputation, and although we really didn't know her and appear before her, we wish her well in retirement. 

Au Revoir Judge Freeman.

That's "judgment" and not "judgement." The most misspelled word in the legal lexicon.

I tried a few cases before Gill and found her to be very smart and fair. No black robe fever. She had a good career with Greenberg Trauig before ascending to the bench, as well as life experience unlike those who come over from prosecuting or selling Amway and get elected on their hyphened last names. She was the former wife of criminal attorney Yale Freedman who now practices in Naples. She was one of the real smart judges and we do not have enough sitting on our poor bench. I wish her well and she will be hard to replace.

Gill was at Ruden, not GT & she was great years ago, but the her last few years on the bench she got rude and nasty.

OMG - MSNBC is touting Pam Bondi as a potential V-P pick for Trump. Perfect for him: Blond, attractive, Palinish and a real ditz. His kind of girl. Largest trending on Google this morning: Immigration to Canada!

I practiced in front of Judge Freeman during her brief stints at the justice building and in family court. An excellent judge who was fair and smart. Best of luck to her during her retirement.
