Some weeks are busy, some are slow. Let's recap the last week or so.
El Chapo Cafe: Open. Food? Bad.
Judge Sayfie has opposition....doesn't have opposition.
Judge Rosa Rodriguez has opposition....doesn't have opposition.
Rumpole....somehow threatened because Judge Rosa Rodriguez doesn't have opposition.
Florida has a death penalty....except in one courtroom of sanity on the second floor of the REGJB.
THIS BLOG SUCKS
"The blog stinks"; "It's run by a racist" (not true); "It's run by a sexist" (not true); "It's run by someone who is anti-judge" (well....); "It's vapid"; "It's insipid"; "Why does Rumpole write all those mean things in the comments?" (we don't, figure it out...the readers write the comments, the readers write the comments...).
BUT every now and then, just a couple of lawyers with NO journalistic training whatsoever, does something noteworthy.
Congrats to our Captain, who this week broke a story, scooped the Herald, the DBR, the Wall Street Journal AND the London Times.
The scoop was acknowledged by ace Herald Reporter David Ovalle. here-
The gaffe was first reported by the blogger known as “The Captain,” who writes for Miami’sJustice Blog. Rodriguez, a circuit judge in the civil division, has been on the bench since 1998.
See you in court.
PS: It's "Justice Building Blog" but we understand you may have had a size restriction for the article.
