So as I do every St. Patty’s Day, my day began in the normal fashion — an early morning viewing of the 1985 lost classic “Troll,” while sipping a stiff Irish coffee, followed by a Murphy’s/naturebee double shot chaser.Oh it’s gonna be a good day.
I then did a few edits to Judge Zloch’s memo to Chief Judge Moreno, pdfed it on over to the courthouse, and then jumped in the hot tub for an extended bath. I even exfoliated!
Who knew by the time I got in this morning intrepid reporter Julie Kay was all over the story:
Recipients of the Zloch memo said they were stunned and certain Graham was not behind it. Moreno’s subsequent memos were sent internally only to members of the bench.
“This is family,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Palermo in Miami said. “I love Judge Moreno. What Judge Zloch did was a surprise, and the way he did it. It’s a family affair. And I know Judge Graham is not that type of guy.”
When asked what he felt motivated Zloch, Palermo said: “The memo speaks for itself. You’d have to ask Judge Zloch.”
Just another day in paradise, people.
Sheesh it’s not even 9 a.m. and my work here is almost done!
