Reports flowing in of the wonderful investiture elevating Miami-Dade County Judge George A. Sarduy to the circuit bench. Another quality appointment (thank you Governor Crist and Paul Huck, Jr.!).
Among many highlights, one had to be Florida and Dade County PBA President John Rivera, who unleashed an hilarious and heartfelt corker of a speech -- managing to entertainingly fit in one speech judicial corruption, greedy lawyers, obsure legal mumbo jumbo, how Judge Sarduy succeeded after being a high school dropout -- heck, he even stopped the speech to ask a "pretty lady" in the crowd out for a date. You should have seen Chief Judge Farina's face as this guy let it rip -- a good time was had by all.
Rivera was a tough act to follow, but Hector Lombana did fine, and of course Judge Sarduy gave an emotional, humorous, generous, and personal speech.
Congratulations Judge Sarduy, you are a quality choice (despite being an FSU Law grad) and we welcome you to circuit court.
