Slippery slope
- is it illegal for a lawyer to post a picture of two judges emailed by an anonymous source? (see above)

Scoop! - Ari Odzer
of NBC 6 is working on a courthouse exclusive for broadcast tonight.  It involves a letter Howard Finkelstein sent to Satz concerning cocaine going missing from the Crime Lab.  We've got the goods, of course, but we won't spoil Ari's fun, even if the Florida Bar needs to be reminded again and again and again that lawyers can be cutting edge journalists too.  Anyway, we'll follow-up Monday with the details, just in case you miss Ari's piece tonight ...

Setting the record straight - tons of media in the courthouse today, covering Liz Scherer as she sets the record straight  in the tragic case of Antwon Hope ...

Behind locked doors - we're getting mighty tired of judges locking the doors on public hearings.  Today Hope Tieman-Bristol held crossover juvenile hearings behind locked doors, with the Court Deputy claiming the rule is in place because the hearing room is cramped.  Bristol clarified that the doors are locked because she had received a death threat, which still didn't seem like a good reason, considering the courthouse is heavily secured against civilians bringing in weapons.  We'll be checking into this one, as well as the common practice of judges locking courtrooms when instructing juries.

Are consumers getting the shaft? - the Florida Bar's Legal Fee Arbitration Program has now caught our attention too.  Some people really aren't happy at all with the way things are handled, and they're not lawyers.  Are you one of them?  If so, drop us a line  ...

Coming Soon - Do all of Broward's judges actually live in Broward?

    Bristol's got it wrong. Unless it is a TPR, that is a public courtroom. What is she hiding? Get in there Bill...She's violating government in the sunshine.

    So the two dirty trixters are trying to manipulate who gets moved up to circuit now? They can't stay out of it for long without getting their beaks caught in it. It didn't work this time.

    Paulie will stab you in the Back Man. Biggest sleaze to ever take the bench. The fact that this scuzzy ball sits in judgment of others is disgusting.

    Liz Scherer is too young and inexperienced to have ever been appointed to the bench. This is what happens with politics are more important than experience. This is very disturbing.

    I'm wondering why Mrs. B would want a Circuit job.

    The County Satelite is cush. Half days, massages in Chambers. No trials.

    Then I remember the 600 thousand spent on the election (it was a lot whatever the figure).

    Do they need the pay raise or something?

    My advice is stay in Satelite and get backrubs. If life is that stressful now why go to the fast pitch major leagues?

    Backman makes another blunder. The first counting on Weinstein to help . The second thinking his wife should be elevated over much better applicants. Not counting Ross, who everybody knows how she got there through a similar route, the other three would make much better circuit judges than Arlene.
    It's time Backman stop trying to improve his nest and let the process work without either Weinstein or his influence being asserted into it. Broward County has a long history of the same kind of crap. Weinstein should know better and Backman just looks pretty much the fool yet again for always trying to squeeze the system for just a little more to put into his pocket.

    Diaper Diary XXL - With Backman losing the consistently at the board game lately, it's no wonder why those Biggy Cokes are going down so easy.
    I'd say there's one big diaper change coming when Ana gets finally gets the doo rag handed to her.
    And, oh, yeah, the thing with Arlene. Forget about it. It's just another failure. You're really racking them up these days.
    You might try reading The Black Prince before your next move. You gotta improve your batting average or you wont be asked back.
    Some never forget. Those are the ones you have to remember.
