JUSTICE IS SELDOM BLIND IN MIAMI

Last Tuesday, Judge Jorge Cueto recused himself from the lawsuit filed against Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones by former Commissioner Richard Dunn III.


At that time the Miami Herald reported the following as part of the story:


       “Court spokesperson Eunice Sigler said another judge will be

        randomly assigned the case by computer in a day or two.  The

        new judge will have to decide whether to leave the ruling intact,

        modify it or hold a new hearing.”


Only in Miami would it take 7 days to “randomly” select another judge.  As usual, this is all bullshit.  If this in fact had been a random process, the selection of a new judge coulda/shoulda/woulda happened before the lawyers got off the elevator on the first floor after leaving Judge Cueto’s chamber’s last Tuesday.


It doesn’t take a week for a “random” selection on a computer to happen.


I know this from first hand experience. I have filed 13 separate lawsuits since 1993 over Public Records and Sunshine Law violations. I know the “real” process of how cases get assigned, having stood at the window of various Circuit Court Clerks and watched it happen.


So, whenever the big announcement comes down that a “new judge” has been randomly selected, just remember that the “selection” happened behind a closed door, without any independent witnesses.


If you think I’m joking, then let’s see the news media ask the judge to be able to watch him or his clerk push the magic buttons on the computer and watch the name of the “random judge” pop up like 3 Sevens on a slot machine.


It’s Miami, Bitches! and don’t you forget it!

WELL, IT’S WHAT I GET FOR EXPECTING THE MIAMI HERALD TO REPORT THE NEWS WHEN IT HAPPENS.  AT 12:55 PM ON MONDAY AFTERNOON, A STORY BY CHUCK RABIN POPPED UP ON THE HERALD’S WEBSITE ANNOUNCING THAT JUDGE MARC SCHUMACHER HAD BEEN SELECTED LAST WEEK TO HEAR THE MICHELLE SPENCE-JONES - RICHARD DUNN III CASE, AND THAT MOTIONS HAD BEEN FILED ON FRIDAY.


SO, SHAME ON ME FOR EXPECTING THE MIAMI HERALD TO REPORT TIMELY ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A NEW JUDGE IN THIS CASE, AND IT’S COMPLETELY MY FAULT FOR NOT INDEPENDENTLY CHECKING THIS INFORMATION OUT ON MY OWN INSTEAD OF PUTTING FAITH IN THE HERALD TO KEEP ME INFORMED.


UNFORTUNATELY CHUCK RABIN FAILED TO REPORT WHEN THE “RANDOM APPOINTMENT” ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE, AND I WAS TOLD THIS AFTERNOON BY JC PLANAS THAT TWO, AND PERHAPS THREE OTHER JUDGES WERE SELECTED AND RECUSED THEMSELVES FOR VARIOUS REASONS BEFORE JUDGE SCHUMACHER WAS FINALLY APPOINTED EITHER THURSDAY OR FRIDAY.


ON OCCASION I SCREW UP, AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES.
