Update on McKinzie Lawsuit

Today was the hearing, brought by two residents of District III, asking to deny Robert McKinzie the Fort Lauderdale Commission seat.





The lawsuit for an injunction, stating that McKinzie didn’t live in the District,  was denied by the Judge –




tell it to the Judge

The Judge said, basically, that there was not an emergency, as the City had already sworn McKinzie in, but that the Plaintiff Attorney could come back to the Court and file a motion for a full hearing ( on whether or not McKinzie met the qualifications for the seat – residing in the District).

The Plaintiff’s attorney thinks they can prove that McKinzie actually lives in Plantation.

 Interestingly, after the hearing ended, McKinzie’s lawyer Greg Durden,  told me that McKinzie had just petitioned the Property Appraiser to delete the Homestead designation from his house in Plantation.

No word yet if the plaintiffs will file for the full hearing.

  1. I am so disappointed in commissioners Dubose, Roberts, n trantalis but also the mayor in his comments. Sad day for ethics in ft Lauderdale n judge Carlos Rodriquez seems unfit to practice law let alone be a judge. What skeazebag special interest group got this clown on the bench?

  2. does it matter?reallytim?

    dubose will grow up in Tallahassee when the rough and tumble repubs show no reapwct let alone give him the floor
    unless the catatonic dist 3 folks make their voice heard via votes come march 2015, really why should it matter?
