MOTHER USED FALSE POLICE REPORT OBTAINED BY MOTHER AT MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT IN VIOLATION OF FL STATUTE 741 AND 837. MOTHER COMMITTED PERJURY IN JUDGE BRENNAN’S DV COURTROOM. ALL MEN WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE JUDGE BRENNAN IN DV COURT HAVE LOST. THIS IS A BIAS JUDGE GUILTY OF GENDER DISCRIMINATION. Video – The False Allegation of Domestic Violence Epidemic Coming soon to every Florida Courthouse:

 

Judge Vicki Brennan, whose career has spanned being an Assistant State Attorney, Counsel to Governor Jeb Bush, and Circuit Court Judge, has resigned.

We have this confirmed from two separate sources.

Brennan suffered through a minor scandal this summer involving her actions in a personal matter in the Keys.

There are second acts in America, and Judge Brennan will certainly find her footing and re-emerge, as either the superb lawyer she once was, or in some other form of public service.

We are all human and we all make mistakes, and none of those things detract from our fundamental worth and value to ourselves, our family, and our community. Sometimes Judges and prosecutors lose sight of this. Only age and experience can allow someone to view an individual’s actions through the lens of time.

BRENNAN BROUHAHA

– Monday, August 15, 2016 –

Update: Take our new Judge Brennan poll.

This story was broken by David Ovalle of the Herald 

While angrily trying to boot her teen son’s drunk pals from her Key Largo home, police say a Miami judge used a metal pipe to smash the windshield of one young man’s pickup truck.
 
The episode led to a strange South Florida legal saga — for most of July, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Victoria Brennan quietly was facing an arrest warrant for criminal mischief in Monroe County, a period when she briefly sat on the bench presiding over criminal cases.
 
At a hearing last week, a Key West judge stayed the filing of the arrest warrant, putting the case in limbo after Monroe prosecutors decided to opt out of the investigation. Florida’s governor has now assigned Lee County prosecutors to review the case. Even if the case dissolves, Brennan could still face scrutiny over whether she properly disclosed to superiors and defendants that she was facing a criminal case while ruling on criminal cases.
 
On July 7, the Monroe County State Attorney’s Office “gave verbal OK” to have the arrest warrant signed, the report said. Key West Circuit Judge Timothy Koenig signed the warrant for second-degree misdemeanor criminal mischief. The warrant, however, was not — and has still not been — entered into the clerk of court’s system. It was unclear Monday why the document was not filed immediately, which is standard in criminal cases.
 
Rumpole says: Judge Brennan is a good judge and we hope she will remain a judge.
 
This however, is a lesson in humanity for all of us, including those of us who judge or prosecute others- “Let she who has not sinned, cast the first stone.”
 
We are all human. The best of us, have bad days where we do something, upon reflection, that we regret. Such transgressions should not prevent a person from serving and serving honorably when they have done so in the past. We hope this is quickly and amicably resolved.

Adios Fidel!!

History will absolve me

…is what Fidel Castro told the court that sentenced him to fifteen years for a failed coup attempt prior to his successful overthrow of the Cuban government. Pardoned and exiled, Castro returned and executed a successful coup against the Batista regime.

History has not absolved Castro.

History will condemn him.

The history of Cuba from 1959 to the present is the history of all communist dictatorships– a failed economy; a people without rights of expression and movement and ownership of private property.

The philosopher Ayn Rand wrote that there can be no rights without property rights, and history and Castro and Cuba have been a microcosm of her proof.

Our community is populated by Cuban ex-patriots whose only crimes was the ownership of property, the running of a business, and education.

When Castro imposed his dictatorship on Cuba, the doctors, lawyers, engineers, farm owners, and merchants were the first to flee torture, imprisonment, theft of their homes and businesses, and murder. Those who could not own the rights to their abilities would not stay in a society founded on altruist-collectivism.

From each according to his ability to each according to his need  cannot succeed when those with ability refuse to serve those with need.

Cuba today is an economic and ecological disaster. The farms cannot produce because the land hasn’t been taken care of. Knowledgeable farmers who had their land confiscated “for the people” left. With farm production falling, there was little to sell and GDP fell. With his country teetering on economic collapse, Castro moved Cuba into the Soviet sphere, where the Soviets propped up the Cuban economy for the next forty years until the Soviet Union collapsed. With no sponsor for his communist state, Cuba fell into economic collapse in the 1990’s; its people starving and its economy anemic.

Today Cuba is a county frozen in time. Cars and households and infrastructure remain frozen in 1959. The country cannot produce money to do more than barely feed its citizens. Technology is almost unheard of. There is nothing that Cuba produces that is new or enviable. Even its tobacco farms have fallen into fallow.

History has spoken. The Cuban revolution and communist dictatorship have failed. Hundreds of thousands of good people had their property stolen. There are no free elections, and in 2016 the country teeters without basic technology on the brink of economic collapse.

There are not many things that we can accurately predict, but this is a one hundred percent given: in days, weeks, months or even a few more years, Cuba’s totalitarian
communism and Fidel Castro will be consigned to the ash-heap of history.

Soviet Premiere Khrushchev once famously told a group of western diplomats “we will bury you.”

Cuba is burying Fidel.
And the world will soon bury Cuban totalitarian communism. 

Guaranteed!

“The Change is Long Overdue” ~ Florida Senate Bill 250 for Equal Shared Parenting is now law.

Permanent alimony, defined formulas are key points in new legislation

By Paul Giorgio – Producer

Justice Denied - No Jury in Family Courts - 2016

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Major changes could be coming to Florida’s alimony law.

Alan Frisher, co-founder of The Family Law Reform advocacy group, said the change is long overdue.

“I think our laws are really archaic,” he said. “We haven’t changed our laws for the last 50 years in essence and now it’s time to really make the change.”

Frisher said there are five key points to the proposed law. In addition to the removal of permanent alimony and the ability to modify or eliminate alimony at retirement, the bill also defines a formula judges must use when determining settlements.

“We want to be able to give judges discretion, but we don’t want to give them so much discretion that there’s no consistency from one sector to another, because right now there’s no predictability or consistency,” Frisher said.

Currently if someone paying alimony remarries, the courts can view the new spouse’s income as ‘family income’ that is eligible for an upward modification in payment.

Under the current law, modification is also possible if a payer earns a greater yearly salary. Payers cannot be brought back to court under the new bill.

A similar bill was vetoed in 2013 by Gov. Rick Scott. That bill had language that would have allowed it to apply retroactively. Scott said it would have unanticipated results. HB 943 has eliminated that language.

Shoot the Messenger in Family Courts

Yes. They Shoot the Messenger in Child Custody/Access Cases | Gary Direnfeld, MSW, RSW

A parent called me asking for me to provide an assessment. I explained I do not provide court involved services anymore and explained why. The caller asked for a referral to someone who did. I offered the name of a respected colleague.

The caller emailed thereafter and included in the email messages that had been posted about the colleague on the Internet. The postings portrayed my colleague quite terribly. The caller wanted to understand how I could refer to such a person. My reply was this:
