3d DCA Watch -- Welcome, New Lawyers!

It's a festive time inside the bunker and the Resplendently Robed Ones have pulled out all the stops (i.e., they briefly fixed the coffee maker) to welcome a new class of Florida attorneys:
On October 3, 2012, the Court will hold Induction Ceremonies to swear in the newly admitted inductees to the Florida Bar. The induction ceremonies will be at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. All inductees, their families and friends are invited to attend.

Now that you've just been sworn in, did you know some lawyers want you to be regulated by the Florida Legislature -- and we know how good a job they always do:
It may be time to review the status of the Florida Bar, which is only subject to the supervision of the Florida Supreme Court Justices.

Why should lawyers be the only profession exempt from legislative oversight; that is, from the oversight of the people of Florida?
I thought conservatives want LESS regulation of business?

Sorry kids, too late to go back to law school.

Let's press on to the business of pressing business:

City of Miami v. Fraternal Order of Police:

Judge Cynamon's temporary injunction enjoining the City Manager from invoking a "financial emergency" overturned.

Back to the bargaining table!  (Good luck.)

Here's an interesting one -- Judge Shepherd on the limited nature of appellate review:
The jurisdiction of the courts of this state is an intricate design arising out of provisions of the state constitution, statutes, and rules of procedure. We are not authorized to cut corners on that design.
Hey, weren't we (and the Florida Supreme Court) just talking about this?

Murphy v. Murphy:

Judges Schwartz and Rothenberg disagree on what constitutes a "supportive relationship."

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure this qualifies.

Now go get a job, plebes!

Murphy - you sly dog...that's Judge Murphy to you.

What is interesting is the lack of nastiness in the Rothenberg dissent (she makes a strong case on this one). Me thinks that she is intimidated by Judge S. and has learned her lesson.

Sorry, but no one intimidates Rothenberg. There is alot of dispute on the interpretation of this statute,and alot of support for both the majority and the dissent.

Trust me - that nasty R wants nothing to do with The S man....she is smart enough to pick and chose the right battles - Scalia would not want to face a nasty S man dissent.
