We are, hands down, the best legal blog in the business. Always have been, always will be subject to our elevation to the Supreme Court which will require us to stop this blog (but start another one hehehehe).

Fresh off another sinless year, we are back, as are the courts of Dade-County. This has been a most unusual two weeks, with courts closing for two days last week in the face of Hurricane Michael (Motto "Made ya blink!"), followed by the Columbus Day holiday ("Land Ho!") and then Yom Kippur ("Repent!").
Now begins the six week push to Thanksgiving, after which, good luck getting much done until 2017.
So what's the good news? Who's in trial and what's the latest gossip?
We have a new round of judges coming in for 2017, and of course the normal judicial rotation to contend with (Spin the Wheel of Judges: "round and round she goes, where it stops, nobody knows").
See You In Court.
