VETERANS COURT KICK-OFF TODAY
New Veterans Court cuts the ribbon TODAY- Friday- Courtroom 4-1 at 11:30.
Judge Tinkler-Mendez will preside over the new court.
REGJB Old Timers know that Miami was the First In The Nation to start a Drug Court- trivia- name the late Judge who founded drug court (hint- he was an old motocycle cop before becoming a lawyer). UPDATE- All answers in comments are correct. The great Stanley Goldstein.
Hundreds of thousands of veterans have returned from two-decades of war, only to find no parades, and not many people who understand their problems. This is a good start. Well done.
See you in court.
