Desperate effort to salvage reputation of judiciary

JAIL4Judges pointed out a Daily Business Review article titled, "Fla. Legal Elite Hope to Get Judges a Little Respect -- Group wants to bring judges back in public's good graces after embarrassing blunders and judicial abuse and misconduct." The article says,
.
Prompted in part by Florida Supreme Court justices and the potential loss of a new courthouse, a group of high-powered lawyers is launching its own effort to restore public confidence in Broward County's fractured judiciary.

The project is spearheaded by former Democratic state Sen. Walter "Skip" Campbell, prominent Republican lawyer Edward Pozzuoli and Eugene Pettis, a member of The Florida Bar Board of Governors.

The group began organizing in the past few weeks and is attempting to set up an initial meeting.

The objective: Help bring respect back to a bench beset by criminal investigation, insensitive comments and inappropriate actions.

"We have a great judiciary. We just have to prove it to the public," Campbell said. "The group is starting because there is a call for help."

The group plans to discuss ways to bring the judges back into the public's good graces and wants to meet with incoming Chief Judge Victor Tobin . . .

. . . "Everyone involved in Broward's criminal justice system -- the public defender, myself, the clerk of courts, all the judges, private counsel, court administration, BSO -- everyone is lumped together as 'the courthouse' in the eyes of the public," Satz wrote in an e-mail when asked about his involvement. . . .

. . . The lawyers also fear that political efforts to jump-start plans to build a new courthouse may become a casualty of months of questionable judicial conduct. With property taxes a top concern, county voters defeated a proposed $450 million courthouse bond last November.

These fatheaded attorneys don't seem to realize that a lot of public distrust of judges and attorneys is due to bad personal experiences. Judges and attorneys think that they can get away with shafting people because few people will notice, but the effects of these bad personal experiences are cumulative.

And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Luke 11:46

This is like saying that bank robbers have a low opinion of the police.

You weren't shafted. You have lost all of your cases due to incompetence - the obvious legal incompetence that you display on this blog.
