With the departure of Judge De La O, the hot topic over coffee and pastelitos at the El-Chapo Cafe was who would be the new administrative judge?
Now we can answer the question. But first, an update on new judge assignments:
Judge John Schlesinger will be taking over for Judge Hanzman- division 19. Chambers will be room 415, Courtroom will be 4-5.
(Fun fact: You can rearrange the letters in both judges names to create the word "henchmen" or "chasms" to name a few words).
Judge Eric Hendon will be taking over for Judge Richard Hersch-division 4. Chambers will be room 413, Courtroom will be 4-7.
Judge Lisa Walsh will be taking over for administrative Judge De la O- division 15. Chambers will be in room 228, Courtroom will be 2-10. (whales, hallowed and hashed).
Judge Jorge Cueto will be taking over for Judge Pooler- division 13. Chambers will be in cuarto 212, Courtroom will be 2-4.
(Ocelot, coupled, and recoup).
Changing chambers.... because every judge wants a better chambers.
Judge Del Pino Division 16 will be moving to the seventh floor. Chambers will be in room 712, courtroom 7-3.
Judge Charlie Johnson Division 9 will be moving to the fourth floor. Chambers will be in room 424, courtroom 4-3.
AND NOW, YOUR NEW CRIMINAL COURTS DIVISION ADMINISTRATIVE JUDGE....
No, Judge David Young is not making an "Ali like" return to the ring or the REGJB. And no, neither Judge Blake nor Firtel are being lured out of retirement for one more REJGB go-around.
Your new Administrative judge, a former ASA, an all around good guy and a very good judge, is none other than Judge Charlie Johnson!
So here are a few changes that could be made to make everyone's life at the REGJB easier:
1. A Starbucks on the first floor.
2. A Prime 112 replacing Au Bon Pain. Call it "Prime 1350". Has a nice ring to it.
3. Replace the dial up modem powering the Wifi with something more modern like from the late 1990s.
4. A-forms...dare we say it... almost too much to dream for...but A forms scanned and on line.
5. Valet parking.
6. A Fed-Ex Kinkos replacing the clerk's office on the second floor.
7. Not punishing defendants who go to trial and lose....okay okay, maybe be are asking too much. But the Prime 1350 and the Starbucks will be nice.
From Occupied America, fight the power.
