It rained in Miami this week. Which means, naturally, that one of our courthouses flooded. But it wasn't the asbestos addled dinosaur at 73 West Flagler Street (Motto: "A support beam in every courtroom obstructing your view since 1935"), but one of our newer courthouses- the Family Law center where everyday divorces and domestic violence injunctions are bandied about like so much hoo-haa.
So what does this mean for you, you may ask?
Carry an umbrella, replies Rumpole.
And read this email and govern yourself accordingly:
The Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse Center, located at 175 NW 1st Avenue, was evacuated and closed on Tuesday afternoon, August 1st, due to flooding from a roof drain impacted by significant rain. The building will remain closed on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, for repairs.
All hearings scheduled for Wednesday, August 2nd, will be re-scheduled and parties will be notified accordingly.
What you may ask, could even be more bad news that that? Steady yourself.
The clerk's office on the 9th floor has ....REMOVED the copy machine. No soup for you. No copies of a-forms and discovery and such for you.
But Rumpole, you may ask, doesn't this mean that the files will be available on-line?
Surely you jest dear reader. Stop reading fake news. The clerk's office just upgraded their dial-up modem for AOL, although it's still powered by a couple of gerbils on a wheel in a cage. And monitored by a guy named "Al".
From Occupied America, where Miami Beach floods when it rains, but sea levels aren't rising, and the globe isn't warmer, and part of the Antarctic ice-shelf didn't recently break away, carry and umbrella and Fight The Power!
I miss the Mooch.
Who cares about the Family Courthouse?
The real courthouse is Criminal.
Anyway - Judge David Young gets another day off. The world is good. Murray the Dog is happy.
I had hoped Donald would govern more to the left just has i had hoped Obama would govern more to the right. I was wrong both times.
I had hoped Donald would rise to the occasion but, he hasn't. He has been a total jerk and completely unable to do the job.
JUDGE MARTIN ZILBER should be Chief Judge. He is charismatic, is very close friends with all the other Judges and is a brilliant leader.
His Asa's and public defenders love him as do private lawyers.
There are 5 vacancies in the Federal Court.
What superstar Circuit Judges will apply?
Who will get the nod??
Looks like Mike Grieco got way over his head in Miami politics and is now being investigated by the SAO. What's your take Rump? Grieco has been discussed by you on prior occasions but now the stories and stakes are much worse....
Whatever happened to Lyons and Lurvey?
Lol at the Zilber thing above. Pass. Soto is brilliant
The rain called the Shumie in the family courthouse.
Mike Grieco is a nice guy, but, lacks good judgment. It started when he got fired at SAO for posting on Facebook how happy he was prosecuting a famous person.
He really fucked up with his comments on the Justin Bieber arrest. As a sitting commissioner he commented about the case on national news. Really bad move.
This latest thing was super, super stupid.
Mike, you need a bell to go off next to your head before you make bad judgment calls.
What did DJ Esquire do now?
