"But don't tell me this was some insurrection to overthrow the government. It was a riot, by these specific individuals. And don't tell me the other hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people who were there. It didn't even know this was going on the line. The crowd was so far back. That they are not involved in legitimate political discourse. And don't tell me. That people can't use their free speech rights and talking about an election, good bad or indifferent. You see Liz, what you don't understand about me and a lot of people. I'm not even talking about ballot boxes and drop boxes. I'm not even talking about any of that. That constitution, you keep referencing. I am talking about that. You haven't said squat. About what the Pennsylvania Supreme Court did. To article two of the federal constitution. Did you read it? You know what the hell I'm talking? Listen to what Mike ludix stroll Mike ludik. He doesn't even address it. He doesn't even address it. And he looked a lot like Mueller up there to be perfectly honest with you. But that aside, you don't want to discuss that. None of them want to discuss this. The state legislatures determine what the election laws are. They did to ensure that your father would be vice president of the United States. Matter of fact, Liz, the Florida legislature, Republican legislature, had convened because the Florida Supreme Court and all the rogue members the Democrats kept changing the election laws like they jam Pennsylvania. And the Florida legislature finally said enough is enough. We don't want to do this, but we're going to have to choose the electors. The Florida legislature. And then the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in. Because your father's boss Bush and gore were litigating back and forth. And I read Ben Ginsberg, the guy, one of the guys who put out your report, he wouldn't take no for an answer on the election. He was a hired gun. He was one of the organizers. When into one court after another court hired lawyers, fight at fight and fight it. Why did you fight it? Why did Ginsburg fight it? Why did you accept your loss? Hanging chads, no hanging chads, okay. We lost. You never said that. Your father didn't say it bush didn't say it. Ben Ginsberg didn't say it. Tom Hogan didn't say none of them said it. Why? And the Democrats said that the Bush Cheney administration was illegitimate. Was it? Well, the Supreme Court stepped in under William rehnquist, the chief justice of the Supreme Court. A brilliant honorable principled consistent man. Unlike John Roberts, mister Wheeler dealer. And the court said 7 to two enough is enough. When two cases were brought to this Supreme Court out of Pennsylvania, the court said nothing. Now they're taking up a North Carolina case. They should have taken up the Pennsylvania case. Like Alito and Gorsuch and Thomas, one of them, too. But they couldn't get Kavanaugh. They couldn't get Barrett. Roberts has a spell over them most of the time. Not on the Dobbs case, obviously. But Roberts didn't want anything to do it. We can't get involved in an election. So Liz, here's the problem. Nobody. Questions. Nobody. You hit a cop with a hockey stick with a bottle. You spray stuff on them. You do that stuff. You go to jail. But everybody doesn't go to jail. Not if you're riding in Portland and Seattle and New York and your Black Lives Matter, your names get painted in the streets by the Democrat mayors. People are pissed off about that list. You comprehend that. You keep calling this an insurrection. Led by the president of the United States. See, you take this a bridge too far. You burn down every bit of credibility you ever had. Like trying to settle your personal scores and the personal scores of the Bush Cheney clan. You don't understand
Florida appeals court reinstates DeSantis congressional map
"A Florida appeals court has reinstated a congressional map put forth by Florida Republican governor Ron DeSantis AP correspondent Norman hall reports The new congressional map drawn by governor Ron DeSantis staff could diminish Florida's black representation in Washington a lower court judge ordered it replaced just a week ago while the appeals court did not address the constitutionality of the map it did cite what it called the need for certainty and continuity as election season approaches The desantis map would likely boost the number of Florida seats held by Republicans while also making it difficult for democratic U.S. representative Al Lawson to maintain his seat in the north Florida district where nearly half the voters are black Another district that currently favors black candidates is also redrawn The latest ruling is expected to be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court I Norman

The Supreme Court Had Precedent to Rule on the 2020 Election
"Now, these men who gathered in Philadelphia, They understood what they were doing. They created the Constitution. They created the federal government. They created the presidency and the vice presidency. They created the Electoral College. They created separation of powers. And they created Article two, Section one Clause two. In such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct comma. In the state of Pennsylvania that come about the Pennsylvania What a growth a grave violation of the federal Constitution by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania as much as you would a violation of the Constitution by the Florida Supreme Court in 2000. Actually, this was worse. The difference is the U. S. Supreme Court in 2000 stepped in and upheld the United States Constitution. And one of the arguments people were making, including me was exactly this section of the Constitution. Article two Section one Clause two as the Florida Supreme Court kept changing the deadlines and the manner in which we count chads. They kept extending the deadlines. They kept interposing themselves into how chance are to be counted. They were violating the federal constitution. And the U. S Constitution. Put an end to it. The U. S. Supreme Court under the US Constitution, put an end to it because the Legislature makes these decisions. Not the Florida Supreme Court. Well, what happened in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was even worse. Because what happened there is also an elected in this case, Supreme Court of seven members, five of them were Democrats. They extended the time for voting. The eliminated the signature requirement. And they did other things. That the Legislature in Pennsylvania, which was Republican, did not do.
Florida Supreme Court Nixes Recreational Marijuana Ballot Proposal
"florida supreme court" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"FM HD, too It's 7 23 and Felix Vega's onboard are W F L, a legal analyst and Felix. I understand another stand. Your ground case went before the Florida Supreme Court. Tell us about this one. Yeah, This is an interesting case, Jack. Because the court rules in 2018 that the standard ground laws changed in 2017, changing the burden from the defense. The prosecution the standard ground hearings. Before trial was not going to apply retroactively, which means the cases that were heard before 2017. We're not going to be heard again and that people the new standard would go into effect in 2018, and that would be the law going forward. This case has to deal with a very unusual circumstance where we have the defendant decided not to have you stand your ground hearing before the trial before 2017 could they now will go back and change their mind. And so the way that this work is this case was Aggravated battery case out of Leon County up near Tallahassee. And what the defendant decided to you, along with his lawyer is they decided not to have that stand your ground hearing before the trial. In 2017, and they asked the judge actually hear the consider the motion for a senior ground during the trial Now in normal case, what happens is that you can have your standard ground hearing. If it gets tonight. You still argue self defense a trial In this case, what they did is they argued self defense, the trial but then also ask the judge to say, Hey, can you get cigar? Stand your ground motion and dismiss the case. If you think that there's not enough evidence to go forward the judge night that and the kid's got Let the jury went to the jury, and he got convicted of a misdemeanor. Well, it is what happened in the case. I mean, tell me about how this came about or who he was going against her. You know what happened there? Basically it was just a basic fight. And it was not a murder case, which I thought was unusual that they would take this case all the ways of the Supreme Court to argue another retroactive attempt on stand your ground. And so when the jury came back with a lesser charge of misdemeanor battery, what they're arguing now of the prosecutors arguing now is say. Basically saying that, hey, he wasn't convicted of the charge that he was charged with. He was convicted every lower charge. Therefore, the need for seeing your ground hearing has already been resolved by the jury. And so with the court needs to decide in this particular case. Are they going to be consistent with their prior ruling about all these standard ground cases and saying they're not gonna be retroactive in terms of when you decide that you want to have these hearings? And whether another going to say that well going forward. You need to have a separate hearing. Not during the trial, which is what the caves happened here. The prosecutors agree that the judge originally should not have done this. They should have had a separate hearing. How where they're saying that the fact that he was convicted of only a misdemeanor jersey whole entire issue. And it should not be before the board right now. What's a precedent? Do you think this could set here? Felix? Well and then we get in the same president we have with the underground retroactivity issue in 2018. Will this open up all these cases that have already been resolved and decided either by a jury verdict by a standard ground hearing that was denied. And whether judges girl while these hearings to go forward, and this is a strategic decision by defense attorneys whether or not before 2017 when the burden was on them to prove They were acting in self defense when it shifted, the prosecutor's lot of times defense attorney says, Like Yeah, you know we're not going to go that route, because in the old version of standard ground, you would have to call the defendant as a witness to establish your standard ground motion. During that hearing that would open the dependent out to another cross examination before trial and exposed what the defense strategy was alive. Defense attorneys begged off of that. Before the rule change in 2017. Now the issue is would you have changed your mind and then something different before 2017. And should you get a second bite of the Apple now looking at the state of Florida feelings from what you're seeing? Are there a lot of cases that could fall under this and look at this retroactively? I think it's going the fact that they did not have any murder case that they're putting before the board says to me that there may not be that many that would be affected, however. The traditions are all over the place when they come to standard round Jesus The Tampa Bay Times to the huge article about this years ago when they looked at some 203 100 cases. Based on the race of the dependence versus the race of the victims. Like a study on this magnitude in terms of how many people decided not to do a hearing before seeing the ground firm strategic reason that's all covered by attorney plan privilege. So the attorney for the defendant would have to come forward and say, I wish I would have done this. Mm. Well, Felix Vega covering it Well, here with R W F l a legal analysis and we'll talk to you later, Felix. I'm good. Have a good weekend,.

Georgia election audit finds over 3,000 more uncounted ballots in 2 counties near Atlanta
"So the Georgia election audit found over 3000 more uncounted ballots in two counties. This is in addition to 2600 uncounted ballots found in a previous county. Now again. You add all these numbers up? It's not going to be enough to flip the state and even If it were, let's just for argument's sake. Play along here say that the Trump campaign finds enough shenanigans going on, and they actually flip Georgia. It would still give Joe Biden 290 electoral votes compared to 248 for Donald Trump, meaning he would still be the winner. Hey, look, Gore, back in 2000 went to the Florida Supreme Court a couple times went torto, the Maine Winters, the big Supreme Court like the Big League Supreme Court A couple of times. I mean, he waited weeks before conceding, so Donald Trump's gonna do the same thing. He's going to Make sure every, uh, t is crossed. Every I is dotted looking every nook and cranny for more votes. Look for things that shouldn't be. And I want to know, too. I'm not necessarily saying that he is going toe find enough votes to overturn an election or to get enough. Electoral but electoral votes, But I just I wanna know I wanna make sure
"florida supreme court" Discussed on 1170 The Answer
"I'm your host, Craig Berkson. If you're just joining us, we ended our last segment talking about how this election has given many of us deja vu from the presidential election that occurred in 2000. Between Gore and Bush. And because of this, I ended our last segment talking about this election, and I ended by saying that because there was on Lee a 2000 vote difference in Bush's favor. Recount was triggered for the state of Florida. Not to make a long story short there was a recount, and after the recount, it appeared that Bush still had more votes. Gore contested And the Florida State Court overruled Gore's objection. But the Florida Supreme Court overruled the state court and wanted 70,000 rejected votes to be recounted. Now. This decision went to the Supreme Court, which then ruled 7 to 2 that it was unconstitutional due to the equal protections for the Florida Supreme Court. To count those 70,000 rejected votes. Then the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 to force the Florida Supreme Court to reverse and remand the case. So what This meant was is that due to the upcoming deadline of December 12 that was in 2000, which left really no more time for Gore to find any more votes. The Supreme Court's decision in effect ended the recount and the previously certified vote tally was upheld, giving Bush the victory. In Florida and, of course, in effect the presidency. Now it's important to know that the Supreme Court's decision didn't steal the election. What wasn't known to the public outside of Florida was at the Florida Legislature had been meeting in special session since December, 8th to select the number of electors for December. 12th just in case The election was still in dispute. If the recount had continued, the four the Legislature would have awarded those electors to Bush based on the certified vote, and the only thing that Gore could have done would be then to contest the electors in the U. S. Congress, and the only thing that could have been done in that case would be for the Congress to reject the electors at Gore's request. The Congress was not going to do that. This was a narrow win for Bush, but it was clear who the winner Wasps now after the recount, the vote tally was the same. Bush was ahead. And the country accepted it, and no one disputed the outcome. After roll was said and done, unless, of course, you're Gore himself. With all this said it looks like we're in a similar situation today. The difference, however, is this. Listen carefully. Instead of Florida in 2000, which was one contested state. We now have six Florida's Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada. But unlike Florida in 2000, this contested election is not about overseas ballots. Accepted or not. It's not about hanging chads or dimpled ballots. It's far greater. It's about fraud, something that wasn't a part of the 2000 election and this fraud is undeniable. We have dead people voting in both Pennsylvania and Georgia..

But there's nothing that's gonna happen in the next few days that will do anything but inspire the president to keep hope alive, and it should be kept hope alive is should continue. You may recall for those who can 20 some years ago that the media kept telling Al Gore appeal again Appeal again fight even when the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that it had to stop. You are now December, the 10th. The inaugural was what six weeks away, and that they every chance was accorded to the Gore campaign out of Palm Beach County with the butterfly ballots. And they could not demonstrate whatsoever that there was some constitutional law deprivation. The media kept saying the file go back to the Florida Supreme Court. So if it's a Democrat The media pumps him up. Keep going. If it's a Republican, what do they want? They want Trump to concede sometime today, tomorrow Sunday. Guess what? It's not gonna happen. And for those who want to dump on the trump that is disgusting. Think of what this president has done for us by us. I mean the American people, but specifically the Republican Party and later on, we're going to talk about Some other issues about voter fraud in Pennsylvania, and I have some good theories on that. But until then, just a few weeks ago It was impossible for the Republicans Toe win the United States Senate, You may recall they faced a difficulty map the GOP controlled 53 to 47. But 23 of the 35 seats are up for grabs or Republican seats. It was thought. At that point, the Democratic Senate nominee James Harrison, in South Carolina would beat Lindsey Graham. He was gone. And it was so stupid that it McGrath mainly it was Chuck Schumer spent $100 million to defeat Mitch McConnell. None of it happened. So In addition to Graham and McConnell, Republicans Cory Gardner did lose, as did Martha McSally but Susan Collins one, Joni Ernst, Iowa one. Dan Sullivan of Alaska is about to win Steve Daines of Montana one Thom Tillis of North Carolina about to win and then the two Republicans and Georgia. Both will win January. The fifth, David Perdue and Kelly La Flor, which means The Republicans are going to have 52 seats to block everything that the grain new deal and opening up the southern border. All that stuff we take care of by the Republican. There is one person. That was responsible for what happened. United States Senator With all due respect, it wasn't Mitch McConnell. It was Donald John Trump, Save the Senate and stopped socialism from coming into America. One person the Trumpster. And the House of Representatives. The smart money said that the Democrats would had 10 to 15 more seats. In reality, They're goingto lose 10 to 15 more seats. And the Republicans are on the cusp of seizing power again in the House of Representatives because of one man. Not one man as Donald John Trump. So he's responsible for the Senate, and he's responsible for the house. Plus, can I talk about the federal court system for a moment? Who appointed the best judges the most conservative and the past 50 years. Donald J. Trump Amy Cockney barrel That was brilliant, Unbelievable.

"Here we are. But I do know things will be better when trump is gone and in the campaign to do. So let's talk about trump's campaign into money troubles they've been having. That's right after having such a huge lead over Biden in the fundraising edge in the total cash on hand, it seems like they might even be in shortfall. With less than sixty days to go, it seems like, Donald Trump's campaign has burned through. A billion dollars, and they have nothing to show for it but being behind in the polls six to ten points. So where does almost a billion dollars go? Some of it goes into these questionable transactions like three, hundred, twenty, five, thousand dollars to the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island near Jacksonville for the RNC convention that didn't happen in Jacksonville. Hundred and fifty thousand for planes to pull trump banners. Six million dollars, unquote donor mementos whatever those are. Eleven million for two Super Bowl ads four million into the trump family businesses since twenty nineteen a million dollars on ads in Washington DC just to make Donald Trump feel-good. Twenty one million in legal costs since twenty nineteen. In Eight, hundred, thousand dollars on former campaign manager Brad parse counts, facebook instagram boosting ads about the trump campaign in trump in pro-trump and all that. This is actually part of the reason that Brad Pascal got demoted is because the Lincoln Product Renan added showing how much money he was making the trump family and trump campaign Yang and a Ferrari or something. There's also talk. I was watching another one of the Lincoln project live streams about how they're not raising money anymore like their donors aren't quite is willing to give how they thought. They'd be able to just keep breaking it in in raking in from the same people, but it seems like those donors drying up a bit. So everyone shed a single tear for the trump campaign's cash shortfalls. Oh, that was the other thing. They also said that they have like so many stamp on the campaign that they probably go through twenty million a month on staff charges like paying staff members and stuff. Has A lot of people. In.

Wisconsin seems to be the testing ground, the Guinea pig for election again from the Republicans this time dealing with absentee balance of course, which is we're GonNa vote by mail here. From the CNN article, the Wisconsin Supreme Court told election officials across the state on Thursday a week before the deadline to mail ballots that they can't mail out absentee ballots until the court decides whether to add the Green party's presidential ticket to the ballot. Of course, it was a four three decision gase were four the conservative judges they're debating about the inclusion of the Green Party candidate, Howie? Hawkins. Basically. We should start calling Green party the Kremlin in the US party or something like that because. Questionable, questionable motives. Questionable ties, not really standing for what they say anymore speaking to Meghan wool that chief elections official for the State of Wisconsin. When she was asked, what would happen if the justices order another candidate to be headed to the balance after they have already been printed obviously huge waste of money and paper Wolf said that it would be incredibly complicated and difficult. She mentioned some clerks in smaller jurisdictions across the state have probably already sent balanced voters. So how the heck is that? GonNa work. The State Supreme Court said, the Wisconsin Election Commission must inform the court by the end of the day. Thursday whether SNP balance had been mailed I'M GONNA go with Yeah Probably They're asking for the names and addresses of everyone who has been males in absentee ballot as well as the date the bounce was mailed. And they're ordering that election commission, to provide it with the names of officials who requested that bounce be printed as well. Sedate in time those requests were made. The controversy started because Hawkins and Kanye West by the way were denied a position on the general election ballot by the Wisconsin Election Commission. Essentially this is just GONNA lead to a lot of chaos seems like a preview for one other states might try and do. But weird that they start with Wisconsin well, not since we're so important to this election unfortunately. Now thankfully, the Big Democratic election lawyer Marc Elias said this quote someone needs to let Wisconsin and supreme. Court know that federal law requires military overseas balanced to go out at least forty five days before the election yesterday was day fifty four. And now they have eight days to figure all this out hopefully. According to Marc Elias before they just have to send him out again. I really hope that's true for all our sakes for every single voters sake but it's just kind of weird living in Wisconsin this year because we seem like the Guinea pig for everything like our Supreme Court made his vote in the primary back in April or one of the elections back in April, in person during. The height of covid won't announce the covert. But what we thought once in now this, the absentee ballots were just like the Guinea pig for everything and it's it's weird because we don't really think of myself as that I don't think of Wisconsin is that important but this year one of swing states that could that could win it one way or the other win it or lose. Not. Really my favorite position. Honestly I hope Wisconsin isn't.

"Ten degrees above normal rain chance ten percent for Wednesday high of eighty to eighty on Thursday same small chance of showers south east to south winds five to ten **** wanted to look for a like shop on bay waters I knew generally cheaper to religious Steve Germany live local and a little different this is PM Tampa Bay with Ryan Gorman on newsradio WFLA the bill requires girls under the age of eighteen to have their parents permission before a physician can perform an abortion our legal correspondent Felix Vega took a look at the bill so let's start here what is the law right now right now all is required as a doctor give parental notification if a minor comes into their office and says that they want to have an abortion so the parent then wants to intervene they legally can come in and say we object to it however it's just essentially noted for the record the data notified so they get notified now but they really don't have any recourse outside of just knowing about knowing about it and trying to talk them out of there and that that's a family matter and and to privacy issue got which is part of what this bill is going to be come under fire for once again which I believe is going to be passed by both houses what they're switching to now is a parental consent model so when a girl comes in to get an abortion the doctor's gonna ask her number one well we need your pick that press to parental consent what is going to require a written waiver of that has to be notarized and signed by the parents of a parent or legal guardian of the mind of it's going to have the abortion so it's not as a parent doesn't have to like go face to face and talk to the doctor and give consent this could be kind of a written right so let me note arise yeah I'll have to take some serious stat exam right so that's the thing the form is built into the the statue that's written into the law my question is this is like so if you're a parent and you're okay with your daughter having an abortion how do you go about getting the form gelling hearing it notarized knowing the procedure who's gonna walk them through this process in order to get the consent form together go to the doctor and that'll actually they have to be there and in order to present their ID to prove that they are the parents so they do have to be answered did you know that part of it yeah so whether to be there for the procedure itself that's up in the air right the doctor has me face to face contact with the parent or the legal guardian and then once they execute that form the doctor then has to sign another affidavit on their own saying that they believe these people are legally consenting to their daughters abortion so it's a two step process just to get the borscht and started yeah and so that's where I think that a lot of push back from pro choice supporters is going to be as like while you're kind of making this harder than if say for example your daughter has sex she gets pregnant you're automatically are like your not having this kid let's go take care of this you don't want anyone finding out about this and so then it's you have to go through this whole process of getting the signed affidavit as we initialed on every page and then going to the doctor presenting your your I. mainly sense if if the parent can sense why can't the parents just go with the young girl to the doctor's office and in person say I consent that's honestly because they need proof right right and so they want to the what the law requires now under this new statute is that the records be kept by the doctor for up to five years after the girl turns eighteen so they're gonna basically be checking to see if they have the consent of these girls either the department of health or is it another agency or it also opens up the doctors because the other part of this is they can be charged with a felony if they perform the procedure where it's not a document that they have the parental consent and I guess they can't just have the forms there the doctor's office because they're asked to be a notary right so unless the doctors and less they have a nurse or a reject out of this and a notary which is common so now I'm smart right so there's different things that they can do but I'm just that was just one of the things that jumped out at me in terms of the procedure that the parents got to go through in order to able to grant the consent sounds complicated it does in what may be a time sensitive time right just the only thing it doesn't make sense to me is if there's a lot of aspects to this issue that we can discuss but just from a common sense standpoint if the parents are with the child's they're there and they can prove they are the parents what a deal yeah well sign a waiver I got exactly so they built those okay that again that's part of the problem with that the pro choice supporters say is you're making this harder and taking away their choice in order to do this in both the parent and the the girl wants you to have an abortion so that's one of the bigger could there be a court case Bailey on that yeah because this is what the the thinking is is that this ball was on the books up until nineteen eighty nine words parental consent was required for an abortion I got overturned by the Florida Supreme Court saying that invaded the group not only the parents privacy rights but also more importantly the privacy rights of a minor so they've been trying to get this passed for a number of years now we've seen different versions in recent years since we've been covering the legislative such as like you when I have a three of us out so that's where I think they're setting this up where if it does get challenge but it but someone for example if someone is denied either of the right to get an abortion or goes into a court case what we'll talk about that in a minute then they have the river they want to go to the Florida Supreme Court which is now in the very conservative court right what will be a test case for other states that want to do the same thing so there's a lot of legal behind the scenes going on a lot of different moving parts if you will so that's where our date the they think that they can survive a challenge of the Florida Supreme Court now where is the one it before governor understand just took over and and respect the court will more conservatives we're talking about this parental consent legislation it's being discussed in the Florida Senate right now it's really making its way through the Florida legislature this session what other aspects of the bill really stand out to you well there's one other exception which is good for a minor child it's actually with an emergency situation there is a medical exception for doctors to perform an abortion if they do you deem it's an emergency situation and so what they have to do is they have to make it at best efforts to notify the parents bought if they in their best medical judgment is the language under the law they deem it's an emergency landing and perform the abortion now just put myself in the shoes of a pro life proponent here what is the definition of an emergency a that depends on what the doctor the leave that kind of of what they deem it medically necessary armor could be a little bit of a loophole that it could be and so that's one of the things that they don't want to tie their doctors hands if something's happening save for example is just like the broader question you know when it's there's an exception for the health of the mother right what does that mean that's that's basically what I'm pointing out here the medical emergency aspect if it's not clearly defined you can have an abortion doctor say this is a medical emergency right exactly and so what they say in the in the law now is medical emergency exist and insufficient time for the physician to comply with the notification requirements which is being getting the parental consent for example say your parents around the country you'll end up getting pregnant you have some sort of you know issue either for example an ectopic pregnancy where the you know the but they give each of the fertilized inside the floppy into that can be extremely dangerous so those types of things where the child has no choice but to go see there are legitimate emergencies but then I was also thinking okay is there a way a work around here that people are likely going to try to exploit that's one which is in the emergency medical exception the other one is we were talking about before when I are the judicial bypass in terms of what remedy does the child have going to court in order to get a judge to override the parents yeah because you could have teenagers you could have a very independent seventeen or OR right yeah or you could have abusive situation exactly how there's a number of different potential issue and that's another situation that I'm concerned with is a prosecutor is what if you have a situation where aids the girl potentially could excuse on cover that she had been raped by her father yeah rate by a relative or something yeah if the if the girl was raped by a relative then the parental consent might be very very complicated right and I can be a challenge because the mother and the parents could be extremely religious and they say well you know we're gonna raise this child and for whatever reason so the question now remains as what they did in the statute and it's already was already set up with the particle notification so they notify the parents of the parents objected becomes this big fight the minor has a right to go to court and go ask the judge to say look I don't want this child and I am pregnant and help me to stop this from help me get an abortion stop this to the mechanisms already there with the law on the books now it'll just be applied to this right to brand new set and so the question that senator warm book from Broward county is raise several times in the different committees is gone through is like wall who's gonna tell the the the the girl that she has the right to go to court number one who's gonna tell the girl number one how do you fight this in court because we get a lawyer where is court kids don't know those things so one of the things the change in the requirements is that if the what I think is kind of strange was they have to make the child request the judge say judge I want a lawyer to fight this it's not automatic if you just go towards a judge I want an abortion can you wave yeah my parents consent they have to basically say what do you want a lawyer the key to the child has to requested which again raises the issue will tell these well what is it what I'm assuming is going to happen here is the Planned Parenthood or whatever doctors offices handle this kind of stuff they're gonna have that information ready to go I think so inform the kids that's probably going to be what I'll take place and what is that things a judge has to do is it once the minor request that they want a lawyer they have to appoint one for them free of charge within twenty four hours that's with a lawyer comes from unclear where they're gonna have this pool of lawyers from I'm assuming family law type attorneys that would handle these cases so that's what they call the judicial bypass however senator book in her arguments in committee was she said that she called several clerks offices and they had no idea what she was talking about they didn't have forms available they didn't know what forms are gonna be necessary that the the kick it fell out and and go have go to court make the petition and then have the attorney than a lot of details still need to be filled and it sounds like just like everything we deal me in the legislature it seems like there's the grand plan as they are but then when you get down into the nitty gritty of the law how do you execute this and so that's a big challenge I think is going to come is that you may have girls are forced into pregnancy is they don't want to get to the point where you know they get too far along and you can't have the pro the pregnancy terminated then where do their rights go as not only a child but also as an individual do you know is this bill this legislation parental consent legislation is just based off of anything else like legislation from another states well I think what they modeled after is probably the same law that they have but ari and just updated it may not more detailed included the different requirements you have and also the out of the fact that they made it a felony for the doctor to perform the abortion okay that's an area yeah that's what the other new part of it so that's where the doctor is going to be wary to do you go outside the boundaries because they could be yeah well rested and charging them lose or their medical license that's one thing what's that it makes it more complicated for the doctors to performance I guarantee you most doctors are going to fall this letter to the law so they don't expose themselves to liability but then you go back to the days before the rover versus Wade.

A. T. C. I. T. O. S. I R. E. C. T. sot CTO Sarek day that is I see all of the state of Florida Supreme Court it's not on any other see all throughout the forty nine other states on their Supreme Court so ask me the next question all right thank thanks Catherine the the Latin is is real good but what does that translate to it translates to soon enough if done rightly soon enough if done rightly I really love that as we were talking about how do you move the case through the system you can settle it out accord if you can't settle out of court you go to mediation if you can't sell a mediation then you go to trial different cases require different amounts of time think about cases like a name change case somebody comes in they want to change their name they go get their finger prints done there's a petition fingerprints come back all is well I can get a court date done very quick soon enough if done rightly hello Jerry on the top of it now to go with your name change think about some of those other cases which comes to mind like the tobacco litigation cases that are going on and and and and or cases where there's just very complex litigation where there's hundreds of plaintiffs moving through a sister maybe it's federal court you know those cases sometimes can take years and you just can't move the case any quicker because it soon enough if done rightly and I think the rightly part is what I what I really appreciate soon enough if done rightly know cutting any corners no just get near dawn of the you know just not doing things the right way processing the case both procedurally and substantively to move it through the legal system so that's that's what I really love our CEO and it's a colorful sealed there's lady justice she's sitting on two on concrete blacks in her left hand she's got the scales of justice in the right hand she's got her saber and she has what she has short hair she has a blindfold on of course and then you have the eagle his wings are out and he's looking at her so she really can't see him because she has our blindfolds on but the eagles looking at her do yourself a favor this this week Google the seal of the Supreme Court of the state of Florida if you have kids or grandkids share it with them it's really fun just one quick thing so when I started I really am not sure how I began my infatuation with the various seals of the Florida Supreme Court it just it it was just an epiphany one day and and off I went so I can remember finishing up a divorce trial and it was a trial those one of those tortured cases where it was just I don't know two three days long was is really long before we finished up and we got to the end of the case and and we're all packing up and and remember you never have ex parte communications with the judge that means if you have a a pending case you don't talk to the judge without the other attorney present without the other party if they're on represented that's an ex parte communication that is humongous big no now because you don't want to seem as though and it would be wrong for you to be getting any advantage over the other party when the other parties not their or their attorney right so for some reason when I finished up this trial I remember standing there in a packing up my my files and getting ready to go and I just looked at the at the at the judges said judge he's okay yes miss help do and I said to him do you happen to know the model on the seal of the Florida Supreme Court and he looked at me a little bit at because we're just been in court like eight hours he's like what judge do you happen to know the model one the sealed Florida Supreme Court he now why do not I said well judge it's subzero Sarek days soon enough if done rightly and he's getting up out of his chair kinda nodding his head and saying thank thank you very much miss hold and the thing I was thinking about was to myself and I as the other lawyer and he didn't know and he was happy to learn about it he was he was a jovial very Amicale professional opposing counsel really appreciated him a lot I wanted within myself when the judge went back into his chambers whether he looked it up on the internet to make sure I gave him the right information I bet she he did so I I just kind of laugh about how that came out how I asked the judge sat Seto Sarek day soon enough if done rightly my friends you been listening to ask an attorney and Catherine hall your Maryland family law attorney here are my areas of practice when I say Maryland family law what does that mean to you I'm what sorts of issues can you come see me would you want to come see me divorce yes okay good what if you've gone through a divorce and you want to re open your case for purposes of enforcement or modification or contempt okay I can handle those cases even if I didn't handle your original divorce okay so issues all about your divorce case both pre and post decree what about a paternity case that means that you have a baby or or children and you're not married to the mom or dad you filed the case you one establish the rights of the parents one establish child support once again both pre pre decree okay issues about the but the paternity case after you won in force one of modify promotions for contempt also issues of of known as seven fifty one petitions okay temporary custody petitions what are those we've talked about those on my previous shows grandparents here in the state of Florida have very few rights yeah I know I I hear you but grandparents have very demanding miss rights here in the state of Florida but what about those cases where mom and dad just drop the kids off at the grandparents house and don't care form maybe mom or dad is in jail one or both of them what about mom or dad is drug or alcohol addicted maybe mom or dad just kind of takes off and now all of a sudden the grandparents to the children and how how old are they may be in their sixties okay are or fifties sixties seventies all of a sudden they have babies are little ones dropped off at their front door or maybe the parents say look I need you to watch the kids for over the weekend and then just like we talked about loud law spouse we have lost parents appearance just leave the kids there in these grandparents love these children of course they do so they stop up and they start taking care may take them to school they go by their clothes they help them with their homework they want to take him to the doctor they want to do all these other things but if you if you're a grandparent in that situation you must petition the court to get temporary custody of those children so even though I said grandparents have very few rights where you have an inroad grandparents is defile these temporary custody petitions when those kids have been dropped off at your house be because if you want to take the kids to the doctor and roll the kids in school grandparents you can't just say hi I'm I'm the grandfather of little Billy here or Mary the the the school or the or the of the health care providers are gonna say that's real nice but where's your legal authority to be able to act for these children are the parents alive yes okay well they're in prison their drug or alcohol addicted to okay will once again where is your legal authority to act on behalf of these children because you all know we're a very litigious is is society okay so you can go to court and get temporary custody and then you get an order from the court and you leave you can get a certified copy of that order and then order grandparent or grandparents will give you the rights duties and obligations to care for that child or children it will allow you to enroll the kids in school I get them it bring them to the doctor getting glasses get their teeth fixed you can put those kids on your health insurance all right but if you don't have that legal document and it's called a seven fifty one petition seven fifty one goes back to the Florida statute seven fifty one okay and he and here's the one thing about the seven fifty one petitions and I do handle a number of these throughout the year is that a a temporary custody which is granted to a grandparent does not terminate the parental rights of the parents and that's that's a safeguard for these parents out there because the grandparents can say look at you know you drop the kids off with me I want to take care of them I need to take care of them and many times the grandparents are saying I'm not even I'm not looking for any child support okay at eight you you need to get yourself you know added prisoner out a jail or you need to get yourself into rehab and get you back into a position where you can care for these kids and once the paired her.
"florida supreme court" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"The Florida Supreme Court issued a pretty consequential ruling yesterday that a unanimous jury should not be required to sentence someone to death federal law in every state that as the death penalty except Alabama requires unanimous juries for the death penalty rather than a simple majority Florida law used to require only majority but after a decision by the Florida Supreme Court in twenty sixteen struck down that model the legislature changed its law to mandate a unanimous jury cell yesterday's ruling opens the door for state lawmakers if they want to to change the law back to only requiring a simple majority to put someone to death our legal correspondent Felix big took a look at this decision I think it was like a sixty page okay yeah I started seven I got I got about you know couple paragraphs in you've been scanning through the entire sixty pages out why the change it's interesting because they're basically on doing what was done in two thousand sixteen because the Supreme Court of the United States was the one that declared our old system unconstitutional and bringing it in line with other cases that are decided requiring a unanimous verdict in other states for the Florida supreme court's going against the US Supreme Court yeah because what they did in this one case called her switched on did the old sentencing schematic is the fourth record declared unconstitutional they send it back to the Florida Supreme Court that same year and said you need to fix this and undo this sentence and so what they did is they the the previous court before governor Rhonda Santa's took over yeah I agree with the Florida Supreme Court told the legislature come up with a new sentencing framework for the death penalty what the legislators did under governor Rick Scott they didn't want to go to the unanimous route so they try doing a super majority where was the I. temporary vertical be allowed got and still get you the death penalty and they go to back to the Supreme Court right away for the Supreme Court says guys the Ford at the ramp award yeah said you have to be unanimous very don't bring us another statute and lets it says the word unanimous and at so on the re write that's when they got into making it not only the deford unanimous but then they have to they have to take a national vote that there's at least one aggravating factor that they can consider out of all the ones that are listed for example heinous atrocious and cruel as one o'clock about this year which is one that's used commonly in this case here involving Mister poll which was a Lakeland a Polk County case they he had a a rape occurred during the course of a subsequent murder he was raping the white or the girlfriend of the victim got killed so that's another aggravating factor they found so they said you have to go around the room and vote on at least one your vote on all of them say there's four they go back to the jury you have to come back with at least one in order to keep deliberating out the death penalty god if you don't then you're done the jury's done he gets a life sentence and the case is over so what this does is they're looking at two different concepts in the law which I find interesting because their use in terms of aggravating circumstances in to get a life sentence in other cases so for example in robbery firearm so you go rob a liquor store and you at gun point it can be robbery with a firearm but then also because you use a firearm in the course of that sentence or the course of the robbery then you can face life in prison years ago what these support the US Supreme Court says that you find someone guilty and then get the enhanced sentence the jury has to make that finding themselves they can't just say yeah he's guilty of robbery and then the the state argues that like well they also prove that it was a firearms are there you can give them why not preserve the jurors got to play a major role yes this I don't know I don't know what out of over simplifying things but to me I'm not a proponent of the death penalty for a number of different reasons but if you're gonna have it I don't see why in the world that shouldn't have to be a unanimous vote by voting to put someone to death I understand the person's likely a monster but still you're deciding to kill somebody right that should be unanimous and that's been my argument all along in the death only process because I saw there was a case of sergeant Mike Roberts was killed from T. B. D. years ago all right before co cabin Curtis were killed by Dante Morris he was shot and killed by a homeless person a by university of Tampa and he had severe mental issues and so they went for the death penalty the jury came back seven five the judge impose the death penalty I'm like you know this is getting reverse on a hill and it did and he was I'm done and was sent to you sent to the White this guy I mean it's not like if it's not a unanimous vote they're just walking I am writing there get life in prison so real quick to process argument that they're making is they're looking into old Supreme Court decision saying that this is not a fact of the case and what your sentence says it's different so therefore the sixth amendment and the eight the minute don't say it needs to be unanimous so therefore why should have to be unanimous actually the Florida Supreme Court said we know better than the US Supreme gas essentially and their own predecessor so I I see this going right back to the US Supreme Court in being like what the heck are you doing right and I would I would strongly urge Florida lawmakers not to go down the road of she don't want to go yeah because your guess what you're gonna do unto you we had all these cases that go back for re sentence things and either the prosecution we decide we want to have another penalty phase or just let the guy go for life in prison now you're to go back and look at all the other cases yeah warms and see if they can go back in and we can victim to get them a death verdict again so all the people that say I okay good I just keep the death penalty I'll just rot in prison or whatever they may end up being sentenced to death again at some point if this holds up I don't think it will yeah I I didn't I didn't see this coming at all I just I don't get it I think again if you're going to put someone to death that should be a unanimous vote at the very least coming up next or to talk about a Tampa detective who is suing you mystic crew over at Gasparilla cannon blast interesting Gasparilla related story and then we'll tell you everything you need to know about gas grill tomorrow schedules tips info on scooter usage all that kind of self serve god all things Gasparilla in a moment of PM Tampa back news traffic and weather Tampa bay's news radio WFLA NFL player Antonio brown is out of jail on a hundred thousand dollars bond is required to wear a GPS monitoring surrenders passport and guns you must also go through drug and alcohol testing at a mental health evaluation brown turned himself in following a warrant for his arrest in connection to an attack on a moving company worker outside is Broward home Florida students will spend less time being tested under new education standards in else but governor Rhonda centers here you need to obviously measure results you need to know whether students are actually learning material but but you need to do that in a way that makes sense the bench.

"Peter shore, she can follow on Twitter at Peter shore. F L, Peter. How are you? I am done with the dishes. We we we come in second to doing the dishes. It's it's good to know butts. Also, understandable. Every now. And then I've got to be a good husband. Yes. The wonderful thing. My wife does. Yes. All right. Let's talk some Florida politics here. Yeah. Governor Disentis made another Florida Supreme Court pick tell us a little bit about this one. This is. Conservative cream at this point. This is the conservative trifecta when he said that he was going to you know, nominate and appoint judges did not let the from the bench the three picks that he made are the fulfillment of that. And this one probably even more. So than the first to be Kirk Carlos show, politically connected. He was a chip Bush guy. This is Pam Bondi s- chief of staff this is somebody that's worked with Betsy DeVos in Washington. DC a lot of friends in Tallahassee you probably saw more cheering and celebrating for him. Getting appointed. You know, the knock is going to be that. He hasn't been in judge that can be one thing. And then there's the considers a continuing criticism from the Democrats that there's no African Americans on the Florida Supreme Court has really not much that Ron John. Because of he was given a list of nominees and you had to pick from that. But other than that if you worry. Conservative. This is what you wanted today. This is the kind of picks you wanted. This is what you went to the polls four in November to elect. Rhonda's scientists and appoint somebody like Carlos there hasn't been a lot of pushback from Democrats on the logo a pick or the luck pick. What about this one? You know, I think they're getting to the Democrats are starting to feel. They're a little bit. First of all isn't a lot of prominent statewide spokes spokespeople to push back on it. Nikki would be the most prominent Democrats. She didn't have much to say about it at this point Senator Audrey Gibson from Jacksonville is the leader of the Senate, Democrats, you know, she is the one who was beating the drum about they're not be enough minority. Representation, but the Republicans will say, hey, listen, we've elected Jewish-American, we left to the Cuban American relisted Spanish. You know, it's what definition of diversity. Do you want on there? Fortunately for African Americans in Florida. Many of them are Democrats, and they're just not get appointed. You know, I said it today has made some other African American appointments as well, you know, to other positions. You know, he he was very comfortable appearing at MLK day event on Monday. And he said, listen, I've appointed people to economic opportunity for I've appointed some Marsteller to head up my juvenile Justice department. You know, he's he just keeps saying, you know, I'm picking the best people by merit. You know, whether or not they are black white Hispanic ground. Green yellow orange dad has nothing to do with it. And so I think this is what Republicans and conservatives and wanting to somebody that's making pick. What are your thoughts on his position on smokable medical marijuana said last week that allowing it is in line with the will of the people, and that's what matters to him. I completely agree. But it is a big shift from the previous administration. Well, Rick Scott never wanted it. And you saw I mean he could not have put he could not have put a finger on getting a medical marijuana implemented. Then what he did. I mean, he he put it through the Florida bureaucracy. And it hasn't moved. You know, I'm in the minority on this one on the smokable marijuana. I don't I didn't vote for that. I, but you know, what I'm losing end of the election. And so I do think it is. I think it is a waste of time to be fighting this court now, I will say there are some people that will say. That you know, they didn't out specifically in the amendment. And so it's the fault of Jon Morgan, and his lawyers John mills us who wrote it. I think I think the bigger issue. So we've got two issues with this one. And this is going to be probably the dominant issue in the first thirty days of the session is what did you want marijuana? Because the governor said if you don't fix it. I'm gonna let the lawsuits I'm gonna let them go. And so the first part of the smokable, I think everybody's on board with, you know, no smoking or what does it smoke? Not no smoke is not a joke is the hashtag the second part of the vertical integration plans. Yeah. That's what you see. When people are driving along the side of the road to make see Cerqueira, and they truly and see some of these companies, and that basically said that if you're going to sell medical marijuana at at the store, you have to be in control of every facet of it going to that before it gets there, which is growing processing testing, etc. You know, I'm big on this one. I think you do have to have not necessarily that you can't hand out more licenses, but you have to have this vertical integration. Otherwise, we will be like, California. We will be like Colorado where you're going to be driving down fourth street or you're driving down boulevard. And if you think that there are a lot of massage parlors on Kennedy boulevard right now leaky how many marijuana and head shops. There will be very very relaxing experience. Marijuana massages the whole deal right there. They're gonna play me up. We're gonna publisher of Florida politics dot com. Peter shortish, Jon Morgan asset proposal to eventually get the minimum wage in Florida up to fifteen dollars an hour could be on the ballot in twenty twenty. What are your thoughts on that? I think it's gonna be on the ballot. You know, I I don't who's gonna bet against John working at this time. Begins Tom Brady internati championship game. You know? He's got the money. He's got minimum. He couldn't shoot microphone. I mean. He is he's the, you know, the governor without being having to be in Tallahassee. He's got one hundred twenty thousand signatures to get a supreme court review. You know, you can argue both sides of it and say, hey, listen, an entry level jobs. The sixteen year old working at McDonald's during the summer shouldn't have you shouldn't be making fifteen dollars an hour. But the person that's working as a janitor at the hotel should be. And so here's a good policy debate in there. I could just see boats that are coming in on it. I think you will have almost every corporate interests fighting against it in twenty twenty. It's one of those things where as a political junkie I'm hoping upon there because I need all of the political. I need all of the big time corporations and all that to buy ads etcetera. I think it will be fifty two now. But I will to say you're seeing this at the national level the presidential level. You're seeing. Candidates like Michael, Bloomberg harass. You're seeing them pick up this issue of a living wage, you know, picking up the Bernie Sanders football and running with it. So it is is right out of the democratic look again, I think it's going to pass I think it will be on valid. I think it will be one of the big Donald going into twenty twenty under the presidential other than the presidential race publisher of Florida politics dot com.
