The Florida Bar has confirmed a finding of probable cause regarding the complaint made by Palm Beach Judge David Crow, following litigation before him concerning matters which resulted in a $981,792 judgment against Laura Watson, P.A.  The probable cause finding was made on October 22nd, which we'll post as soon as we get a copy.  Buddy Nevins has background on the litigation here, and the 4th DCA opinion affirming Crow is here.

What impact could this have on Watson's judgeship?  Word on the street is lots.  Maybe not before she swears in, but it certainly could be a big problem later, if any of it is true.  We're told the Bar may hand the ball to the JQC, and then it could go back to the Bar, depending on what happens. 

Another interesting rumor going around concerns one of Watson's possible motivations for running.  Reportedly, under the terms of Crow's original judgment against Laura Watson, P.A., judicial salary may be untouchable, since it's not derived from the practice of law.  Her pension would also be safe of course, pursuant to statute.  We're trying to confirm all this, while navigating the usual stonewalling by the Bar concerning the release of the paperwork ...

    Julio, of all the people Judy Stern has screwed over through the years, you sir got it the worst of the bunch. Can you believe Judy never got and made public this finding of Probable Cause that came out 3 weeks before the election on Watson. You should get some of the 10k back you paid her.
