Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Lagoa has been confirmed by the Senate (motto: "Please don't use Latin phrases like Quid Pro Quo, it just confuses everyone") and she is now United States Circuit Court Judge for the Eleventh Circuit. The vote was 80-15. Judge Lagoa is way behind her colleague Judge Luck on the seniority list since Luck was confirmed yesterday. That means in the all important choice of chambers and a parking spot, Luck picks first. We're not sure, but this may also mean she must also bring Dunkin Donuts and coffee to practice for the veterans.
Meanwhile, in Tallahassee, the Florida Supreme Court has forlornly hung a "Help Wanted, inquire within" sign on the door.
"Applicants should be self-starters, motivated, with good research and writing skills and should work well with others in a goal-oriented teamwork based office."
It's hard to get good help to stay these days.
FDC CLOSED TOMORROW
It's not the impeachment. It's not global warming. For those who wake up and put on clothes that are not khaki (can't wear khaki into FDC unless you are "invited" in via an indictment), it may be more important. Schedule that spin or Pilates class. Go to Joes Takeaway for the best breakfast on the beach (Rumpole may be espied there from time to time, thumbing through Le Monde), but don't head downtown and don't go to FDC because you will not be allowed in.
FDC Visitation will be closed (cerado) on Thursday November 21, 2019. So don't go. Do some research for those briefs that Judges Luck and Lagoa will soon be reading (and probably denying. We mean if we're going to tell it like it is, then lets speak truth to power and all of the other nonsensical bromides people say).
