She's seen it all, and done it all, almost. She's handled the tough Miami murder cases for at least two decades.
And now Dade ASA Abbe Rifkin wants to be a judge. She's done everything except take three hour lunches, sandwiched between denying a motion to suppress in the morning and a rule 3 in the afternoon. Now Ms. Rifkin will be challenging outspoken Broward Judge Matthew Destry in the upcoming judicial election.
The New Times newspaper article is here. Rifkin is quoted as saying: "It’s 2016 and an election year, so I’ve decided to take it to the people."
Wow. We just had a sixties flash-back. Taking it to the streets. Some ratty jeans; a tie-dyed shirt; a sit in; a march; tune in-turn-on baby. Feel the Bern!!
Anytime a Dade lawyer takes the bench in Browerid, it's a good day.
See You In Court.
