SCARY REGJB STYLE IS......
Walking into Judge Areces or Adrien's calendar on a Friday morning and seeing your client's case is on page 89.
Walking into the Third DCA and seeing Judge Rothenberg on your panel chomping at the bit.
Doing a weekend bond hearing with a new county court judge from Civil.
Trying to get a rational discussion started with a prosecutor on why a drug minimum mandatory should be waived. All you get is "go see David "psych-NO' Paulus".
Trying to get a continuance from Judge Huck. (OK. It's not a REGJB issue, but it's still scary).
Walking into a criminal court North Of the Border and seeing the Former Chief Judge sitting in for your judge for the day. Ouch!!
ADD YOUR OWN SCARY STORIES:
BECAUSE WE TOOK A CHEAP SHOT:
On the issue of early start times: Judge Areces has a system and it seems fair and works. State and PDs' in court by 8:30 A.M.--Private start calling cases at 8:45A.M. Free for all at 9:00-10:00, Don't be late, sigh and a shrug if she has to go back!. Sometimes we come in late, traffic, front door-back door, client tardy. But over all, you can set your watch to her.
JUDGE REYES'S BAILIFF
The comments section on the previous post has some complaints about Judge Izzy Reyes's bailiff. Here's what we know: As long as an individual is not being disruptive, anyone in America has the right to sit in any courtroom as long as that courtroom is open for business. No one- not a bailiff, not a police officer, not a Judge, has a right to tell anyone they cannot sit in a courtroom that is conducting business, unless the proper procedures have been followed for sealing the courtroom.
