COURT REFORMER ANDY MARTIN HAS LONG RECORD OF FILING SUCCESSFUL COMPLAINTS AGAINST FLORIDA JUDGES

(FORT LAUDERDALE)(March 25, 2007) Chicago-based Internet journalist, broadcaster and media critic Andy Martin has a long history of successfully filing judicial complaints and legal proceedings against Florida judges. Martin founded the Campaign Court Reform (CCR) in 1989 and has served as Founding Executive Director since then.

The CCR receives reports nationally and attempts to point the spotlight on judicial arrogance, corruption and abuse of power. Martin began his career as a judicial reformer while a law student at the University of Illinois, as a small part of a team that exposed bank stock bribes on the Illinois Supreme Court and led to the removal of two judges, Roy Solfisburg and Ray Klingbiel, see Illinois Supreme Court Docket No. 39798.

This week Martin filed judicial misconduct complaints against Broward County Chief Judge Dale Ross and Circuit Judge Larry Korda.

"We have been asked for a list of Florida judges against whom I successfully filed judicial misconduct complaints or legal proceedings," Martin noted. "We had to dig into our morgue because our computerized records do not go back that far. Nevertheless, we have assembled a pretty complete list. It may not be complete but it is awesome.

Florida has a culture of sleaze.

Hello, I am very interested in seeing the Judicial system be held accountable for its abuses of discretion when concerning our Broward County Children. Judges who are allowed to order Parents to Consent, forcing them to give up their rights to a fair trial. Extending child removals by using a wishy washy form of authority. Ex>{ time has lapsed to keep children from parents- judge orders removal from improper foster home then the next court hearing orders parent to do more tasks and ignores child's foster placement. Cases that last over 2 years and recently due to letters written to Tallahassee have quickly in Nov. and Dec. tried to appease the system with a flood of reunifications. I could go on. However, I would rather present facts.
