If You Want To Fight, Lets Go Out Back and Ill Just Beat Your Ass
BREVARD COUNTY VIERA, FLORIDA Judge John Murphy and Bevard County public defender Andrew Weinstock exchanged heated words during court today in which Murphy allegedly pressured Weinstock to get his client to waive his right to a speedy trial.

He once offered to settle a point of law with an attorney out back . . . don't believe they took him up on it though.
I’d PAY to watch that fight.
Judge John Murphy - Justice East of the Pecos.
The judge needs to be impeached.
Don't mess with the judge.
It's a temporary waiver used for scheduling purposes.
The judge is not asking for this giuy's client to waive and then rot indefinitely in prison.
He's asking him to waive until the next opening in the calendar.
This attorney was trying to jump his client ahead of everyone else on the calendar.
The judge should be disciplined for not maintaining proper order.
“God save this honorable(?) court.”
I went to Ole Miss in 70s
Intended to get law degree.... better than average school there....babes galore too
Anyhow got undergrad and scored 703 on old score LSAT
A good score...could a gone to UVA
Anyhow instead took off to work all over the world for 16 years
Cause this is exactly what I would have done in courtroom...or testy depositions
plus tired of school...
After many dates in court, his attorney kept trying to get him to admit guilt but he kept refusing. On the last day of trial, even the judge took him in the back room and tried to convince him to give in. He refused....
The jury exhonorated from any wrongdoing...........
I wonder how often doctors actually do admit guilt at the advice of their attorneys knowing the insurance companies will ultimately pay the price.......
Gee, I have more and more faith in the legal system every day.
Do I need the /sarc?
I'm not a lawyer, nor have I even been to law school.
I just have a working knowledge of the real world.
Wideawake is correct here. Visit a courtroom where a lot of people are waiting for arraignment. The first thing is to plead not guilty. Next the judge will ask the attorneys about waivers. Virtually every attorney will agree to waive the right to a speedy trial. Most times their clients don’t WANT a speedy anyway. There are a lot of other rights that are routinely waived.
And people wonder why there is no respect for the so-called 'justice' system in America.
And the judge was the one threatening physical violence as in throwing a rock. Casting the first stone?
The judge made the threats from stoning to a fist fight.
This is justice blind under the law?
If you or I conducted ourselves at the local store with another customer over a parking spot we would be arrested.
Equal is a high standard for the weak and power hungry.
There was a time when people served their God,family,neighbors, Republic and then quietly went home.
Well, it’s nothing new. It’s been going on for decades.
No question. Not to mention being charged with about a half dozen crimes and civil rights violations...
The Judge needs to be fully disciplined for his unprofessional behavior and verbal threats of violence. Who was the ‘audience’ clapping for? Where was The Baliff? (in the judge’s pocket, maybe?)
