Wonder Who Wrote This Order?



Here's how oral argument went in front of the 3d on that Carona/Suarez thing:
At Thursday’s hearing, the three appeals judges grilled Corona’s lawyer, William Petros, who could not get a word in edgewise before the sharp questions began.

“Is there any basis whatsoever” for withholding the results? Judge Alan Schwartz asked.

“How is [Corona] possibly harmed if the votes are released?” added Judge Frank Shepherd.

“The public would have knowledge that could later be disavowed,” Petros responded.

“So what?” Shepherd replied. Later, he added: “Does your client not have confidence in the electorate of this county?”

“Yes,” Petros answered.
Ouch.
 
And poor Judge Thomas, I don't think the 3d liked his injunction very much:
The injunctive order under review is totally deficient in form....and entirely unsupported by substantive law.
Hmm, so the order is not just deficient, it's "totally deficient."
 
And it's not just unsupported, it's "entirely unsupported."

Wonder which judge on the panel writes like that?

  2. These kinds of slap down opinions always made me wonder. These judges (appellate vs. trial) socialize together and must have quite a bit of personal and professional interaction. I see Schwartz in the courthouse all the time now. Let's say he runs into Thomas in the elevator or at an investiture or at La Loggia. What do they say to each other?

  3. Schwartz(who wrote the order) ignores Thomas and walks away. That's how he treats everyone.

  4. Corona should get sanctioned for the P.R. ploy he tried on all of us

  5. The opinion/order of teh Third District was rude, unprofessional, and discourteous. Perhaps Judge Schwartz is just getting too old and ornery to sit on the court. Judge Shepherd is, of course, just weird.
    If I were Judge Thomas, I wouldn't be all ta\hat offended. I would just figure that I am not as embarrassed as the balance of the Third District must be.

  6. Judge Schwartz writes opinions as he allways has, reading his writing, you would think he has not aged a day.

    The closest he has ever come to kindness in writing was his Alan Swan concurrance.

  7. For years and years the Alan Schwartz a--hole act was allowed to go on and on. Everyone said, "Well, that's our Judge Schwartz! He treats everyone that way." Finally, f-i-n-a-l-l-y, someone said, "This f---er has no clothes." (Please help me with her name, South Florida Lawyer.)
    That was a valuable lesson. Always speak truth to power. The kind of crap he was allowed to pull at oa should not have been tolerated.

  8. Her name was Amy Ronner. She was a professor at St. Thomas law school. Put this in your browser: http://www.wfsu.org/gavel2gavel/briefs/sc95422.pdf. Very interesting read.

  9. Judge Thomas is a nice guy and a great judge. He didn't deserve that. Judge Schwartz is a dick.
