Sorry! - if you stopped by the Broward Bar today to gawk at the circuit court wannabe's interviewing for Susan Aramony's spot, you were misdirected.  The JNC provided interview list didn't mention a location, so the traditional Broward Bar locale was posted in error, instead of the proper spot, the Tower Club in Fort Lauderdale.  Hopefuls got to match their lofty dreams with a stunning twenty-eighth floor view, free of a certain pesky blogger, who was tied up in court until it was all over anyway.  In any event, no one has called with good or bad news thus far tonight, with one reliable source telling us the six names comprising the short list won't be released 'til Tuesday.  So stay tuned ...

Buzz Buzz Buzz - is Chuck Morton leaving the SAO after decades of service?  That's the very pervasive rumour, although we can't get any type of confirmation from the powers that be.  Chuck hasn't returned our call, and SAO media man Ron Ishoy has yet to even acknowledge the email (or follow-up call) we sent this afternoon trying to get the scoop.  It could all be BS, of course, although we're told he may wrap it up as soon as the end of this month.  Rumours are also flying regarding the game of musical chairs that would most certainly be set off by Satz's number two calling it quits, as division chiefs might be swapping roles.  Again, stay tuned ...

Coming Soon -

"Chief Assistant State Attorney Chuck Morton has decided to retire at the end of June after more than 37 years as a respected prosecutor and leader in the Broward State Attorney’s Office. “Chuck Morton has been a pillar of this office for decades. We certainly wish him well, but I really wish he wasn’t doing this,” said State Attorney Mike Satz. “He will really be missed by me and by so many people in this office and throughout the legal community.” Mr. Morton will be replaced by Jeff Marcus, Assistant State Attorney-in-Charge of the Felony Trial Unit, Mr. Satz announced ... "

(FROM SAO JUNE NEWSLETTER, apparently published after our email asking about Morton, Marcus, et al ... )
