FUN WITH POLLS
BLAKE NIPS ROSA RODRIGUEZ
No- Judge Blake is not biting his colleagues.
Stan Blake scored a small victory which is really a statistical tie, when out of 100 people voting, 26 said that they would like Judge Blake to be assigned to their case if they were arrested. Judge Rosa Rodriguez was second with 23 votes. Judges Ivan Fernandez and Luise Krieger Martin tied for third with twelve votes each.
Many judges wondered why they were not included in the poll. No real reason. These were the Judges that came to our Chateau Miami River altered mind during one late night when we were bored. Please do not feel slighted. Rumpole will get to you. With a 100 votes, this poll is closed.
BOTH JUDGE SCHWARTZS HAVE OPPOSITION BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT.
Our poll as to why Judges Larry and Sheldon Schwartz have opposition has a clear and surprising winner. 43 of 84 voters have said both Judges have opposition because they deserve it. Gender Politics (our vote) is second with 19 votes. Only one lonely voter said the Judges have opposition because their opponents have distinguished themselves in their legal career. Thus we can glean that while the voters are not necessarily impressed with the challengers, the prevailing sentiment is that anybody is better than these two Judges. Somehow, we find that kind of sad. This poll remains open.
JUDGES PUNISH DEFENDANTS FOR GOING TO TRIAL.
31 of 52 voters have declared that Judges punish defendants for going to trial and the Judges should be ashamed of themselves. 11 voters said Judges do not punish defendants extra for going to trial, and 10 voters agree that judges need to punish defendants for going to trial to keep the case load down. We thank those 10 JUDGES for participating in our poll. See, this site is fun and anonymous. We invite our robed readers to check in often. Probably during that third or fourth hour of voire dire is as good as time as any.
SY GAER JUMPS INTO THE LEAD.
10 of our first 14 voters believe SY GAER does a better job representing defendants than either PDs or court appointed attorneys. Depos schmepos. Go Sy Go,
See You In Court.
