Will the FBI and Secret Service Soon Write Judge Perry a Letter About Jose Baez Lying to the Court?

16 Feb

On the 16th of February, 2011, defense attorney Jose Baez filed a motion explaining why he filed a defense supplemental witness list after the deadline imposed by the court.  The defense motion may be found at the following link.

http://www.wesh.com/pdf/26889140/detail.html?utm_source=manual&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=casey+updates

“1. Despite being in daily contact, including the day before her filing, counsel for the State of Florida has made no attempts to contact the undersigned in order to resolve this dispute or make inquiry of the supplemental witness list filed by the Defense.”

Mr. Baez fails to identify the specific “dispute”.  The State of Florida is requesting the court strike Mr. Baez’s latest witness list because it was filed after the deadline and without the proper supporting paperwork.

“counsel for the State of Florida has made no attempts to contact the undersigned” – Mr. Baez believes “counsel for the State of Florida” has a duty and obligation to contact him prior to filing court documents, especially when they will request one of his motions to be stricken.

Mr. Baez seems to feel he is owed special treatment by the State of Florida regardless of the number of court rules and orders he breaks and ignores.

“Despite the obvious date of 2003 on the diary the State has at tax payers expense, spared no expense in utilizing both the FBI and Secret Service to date this diary to fit their timeline.”

“Despite the obvious date of 2003 on the diary” – If the date was truly “obvious”, would Mr. Baez feel the need to utilize the extra word to describe it as such?  The date is not “obvious” as it is “’03” and not “2003” as Mr. Baez claims.  It is not even “obvious” the numerical reference is a date.

“the State has at tax payers expense, spared no expense” – Commas and apostrophes are not the strong suit of either Mr. Baez or his legal aides.  “Expense” is extremely sensitive to Mr. Baez as he uses the same word twice within a four word stretch.  Mr. Baez is sensitive about “tax payers expense”, about which Kathi Belich often queries him.  Does the payer of the “expense” have anything to do with the outcome of the tests?

“in utilizing both the FBI and Secret Service to date this diary to fit their timeline.” – Mr. Baez accuses “the FBI and Secret Service” of conspiring with the State of Florida to skew scientific test results to support a prosecutorial theory of a crime.  This is a very serious accusation.  Mr. Baez goes beyond claiming the test results are inaccurate or misinterpreted to an outright allegation of impropriety in professional, ethical, and moral standards on the parts of three separate law enforcement organizations.

“The State has also failed to establish; How they are prejudiced by the timing of defense supplemental witness list?” – Grammar and punctuation are not the strong suits of Mr. Baez.  The State is not required to establish how they are “prejudiced” as they need only object based upon the court deadlines.

We have learned Mr. Baez thinks court deadlines do not apply to him because he is so special the prosecutors must request his permission to file a motion asking he be compelled to comply with court orders.

We have learned Mr. Baez does not understand the legal process as evidenced by his inability to grasp the legal requirements for a motion to strike by the State of Florida.

We have learned Mr. Baez does not read Bullstopper or does not wish to take seriously the multiple comments about his misuse of grammar and punctuation.  Mr. Baez may not understand his poor writing skills force others to view him as a fool.

    How in God’s name did he pass the Bar???? I know he took it 8 times, but geez, you would think that would be a red flag to the Bar. No?

    I enjoy your blog!

    What is Mr. Baez’s strong suit?

    • bullstopper February 16, 2011 at 7:24 pm #

      Good question.

      Survey says… number one answer on the board…

      Tacos

      😆

      I am kidding. He prefers burritos.

      😆 😆

      I am still kidding, but seriously, I would say his strongest suit was a khaki material he wore in the first month of the case. The fabric looked strong enough to catch an elephant falling off a twenty story building if a few strong guys held all the sides pulled taut.

      😆 😆 😆

      Ok, OK, still kidding.

      His strong suit is bill and bill collector avoidance. I don’t think the man has paid an invoice in the last ten years.

        How about a G-String and a Sombrero??

      I’d have to say Joese’s strong suit is Armani. Now if could only learn to color coordinate his accesories.

      Did I just read right?? Baez now has his Drivers License suspended for failure to pay a $23 fine????? Good Lord!

    ?

    • Kim February 16, 2011 at 8:13 pm #

      I really believe that is what this is all about, he knows he can’t abandon Casey so his only hope is to be removed. Is this worth his license?

    Ms Anthony commented to her mother after she was arrested, “Mom, I don’t have any mental health issues”. HA! Well, I’d say that she should be completely supine and in a catatonic state right about now.

    Cheney Mason gets the lead out and files a motion of his own:

    Well, he added a paragraph to an old motion, anyway…

    Venice-I still can’t believe it-8 times. Now he’s lost his license to drive. Only time will tell when he will “walk” away from the law……updates to follow.

    • Venice February 16, 2011 at 8:22 pm #

      I can see maybe 2 or 3 times, but 8! That right there speaks volumes to me!

  9. Anonymous February 16, 2011 at 8:32 pm #

    Bull-That was quite a motion. You reviewed the “custody” issue during the past month. How can this Motion be seen as legitimate when defendant’s mother called police? What were the first responders suppose to do? Sit there and not talk to Casey? Make no effort to find out where the child was or if a crime had been committed? How could Mr Mason imply that the defendant was held against her will if the defendant didn’t say something like, ‘Why aren’t you allowing me to go home?”

    If everything pertaining to this case can be thrown out why arrest people?

    • Venice February 16, 2011 at 9:39 pm #

      Very good question! Can Baez answer that?

  10. Anonymous February 16, 2011 at 8:37 pm #

    Venice-I didn’t mean to say he lost his license-he just didn’t pay his license fees. He could do that online for goodness sake. Maybe he should have asked Ms Medina-she seems like a good sport.

  11. Terrytsk February 16, 2011 at 11:16 pm #

    From what I recall, it’s not true that Baez took the bar exam 8 times. Apparently he was denied a license to practice law for 8 years (after passing the bar) due to his borderline criminal financial history and lack of integrity. Things like bounced checks, refusing to pay child support, claiming personal bankruptcy, etc., while he leased a fancy car. His ethics and behavior were not up to the standards of an officer of the courts.

    From what I’ve heard, and actually believe, passing the bar exam on the first try is pretty commendable. Just ask John Kennedy Junior (may he rest in peace). It took him 3 or 4 times. I’m not praising Baez by any means, but he was a “mature” student who went back to school and earned his law degree through the St. Thomas University. I’m imagining most of the courses were by correspondence. That’s a guess or maybe more of an assumption on my part.

    He also dropped out of high school in grade 9, was a father at 17 and then joined the navy. Then he became a deadbeat dad. No excuses there, although in spite of not paying child support to the tune of $300.00 a month for enough years to accumulate a $5,000 debt he appears to be close with his daughter (per her college grad photos that she posted on-line). He must have some good qualities and he probably does have some street smarts. He just doesn’t seem to have a great legal mind. Mind you, neither does the renowned Cheney Mason.

    • Rose February 17, 2011 at 12:11 am #

      fyi jfk jr failed it twice and passed it on the 3rd try.

    • Katprint February 17, 2011 at 1:02 am #

      Re Baez “doesn’t seem to have a great legal mind”: My very favorite legal writing professor used to tell us that “hard work is the great equalizer.”

      I went to a law school that specialized in part time, older students who were pursuing a law degree as a change in career; I myself was a former welfare mother who had worked as a legal secretary for several years, had scored well on the LSAT, and was spending my meager life savings on law school. I didn’t even take out a student loan my first year in law school for fear that I might flunk out but still owe student loan payments.

      What my professor meant was, we may not all be legal geniuses a la F. Lee Bailey but we could work up our cases and do a good job nonetheless. All it takes is hard work.

    • kas February 17, 2011 at 2:13 pm #

      If Baez lead even a remotely commendable existence outside of the multiple bar exam taking, it wouldn’t be so– glaring. He lives his life just like his client, at the expense of others. You can’t expect people not to marvel at it.

  12. beatnikbrenda February 16, 2011 at 11:34 pm #

    I just read that he didn’t lose his license that he paid the fine and now he’s good. BUMMER!!!

    Re: “counsel for the State of Florida has made no attempts to contact the undersigned” – Mr. Baez believes “counsel for the State of Florida” has a duty and obligation to contact him prior to filing court documents, especially when they will request one of his motions to be stricken.

    Actually, attorneys ARE supposed to make “good faith efforts” to informally resolve disputes so that the court’s time and resources are not wasted unnecessarily. So, there really is a genuine “meet and confer” that generally applies.

    HOWEVER, attorneys are not required to expend their limited resources – in this case, TIME is the most limited precious resource – on futile acts. No doubt the prosecution regards contacting Baez by telephone or email to be a futile act at this point, given the results of past telephone conversations and emails. Past acts are the best predictors of future behavior, as they say.

    • bullstopper February 17, 2011 at 10:55 am #

      I feel sure since Jose states the two were in contact the day before his filing, LDB must have mentioned to him the need to show cause and perhaps even asked him the cause.

      I do understand there is a responsibility on both sides to work together to resolve disputes before they reach the level of a decision by the judge or a hearing, but in this case, since Jose filed an improper motion in defiance of prior court rulings, I don’t think LDB had any choice but to respond with a filed written response and I see no reason for her to inform him she would do so as he should be prepared for a filed written response to any motion as he has been crying for the judge to order the prosecution to do just that. He can’t have it all ways, phone calls and non-recordable deals along with written responses.

    A gift for you! An oldie but a goodie:

    snipped from:

    http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2009/may/03/casey-anthonys-lawyer-jose-baez-rejected-florida-b/

    He married at 17, became a father, earned a GED diploma and joined the Navy in 1986.

    According to his résumé, Baez spent three years assigned to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Norfolk, Va., trained as an intelligence analyst with what he described as a “Cosmic Top Secret” security clearance.

    He left active duty in May 1989 as a yeoman seaman, a rank associated with administrative duties, and then served in the U.S. Navy Reserve, according to the National Archives and Records Administration.

      Nums24~ a stroll down memory lane…thanks.

      “intelligence analyst” hmmm and the “Cosmic Top Secret” security clearance used to be one of my rant inducers! I’m just so not ever going to believe that, 3yrs in and he is assigned in such a sensitive area?
      He’s a proven liar so an embellished resume’ is par for the course, Baezstyle.

      • nums24 February 17, 2011 at 10:57 am #

        That was excatly my point 38Special, nothing has changed with Bozo. Once a liar, always a liar!

    • bullstopper February 17, 2011 at 11:06 am #

      I have read this article many times, but it is always good for a chuckle.

      “Cosmic Top Secret” – The man can’t keep his $23 unpaid fines out of the newspapers, how could he keep a Cosmic Top Secret?

      “A black belt in tae kwon do” – This cracks me up every time I read it. I mean, I am sure he owns a black belt and probably a brown one, too, but I would never have guessed they were associated with a martial art.

      “The process is not open to the public, except when a candidate who is turned down asks the Supreme Court to review the decision. The court identifies the rejected applicant only by his or her initials when its findings are released.” – This is a great example of another good decision by Baez as he could have kept most of this private if he hadn’t forced a public review which revealed he is a financial deadbeat.

      “In 2001, according to state records, Baez created a nonprofit group, the Miami Domestic Violence Project. It dissolved two years later. Mackenzie, Baez’s office spokeswoman, said the project disbanded because another group with an almost identical purpose and name already existed.” – This indicated Baez is an excellent researcher and plans out his actions well in advance… 🙄

      “In 2004, Baez created another nonprofit in Miami, Miracles for Children Foundation Corp., according to state records. It continued until Sept. 16, 2005.” – Lasting far less than a year, this was obviously another stellar success for Baez based upon his follow-through and diligence… 😆

      “The following week, Sept. 22, Baez was admitted to practice law. Because the admission process for lawyers is not public, there is no way to know what effect these nonprofit groups had on the Bar’s action.” – Hard to understand why his charity group closed down right after he didn’t need to show any charitable concerns since he got his license… 😕

      “José was more or less the primary instructor” – More or less… less or more… what we know for sure… is… he was NOT the primary instructor… 🙄

  15. tellthetruthbozo February 17, 2011 at 6:53 am #

    Venice –
    Madam, you’re incorrect. First of all, bozo took the bar exam only once – 1 – & passed. He was not admitted to the bar for 8 yrs after graduating law school & making a request to the bar to take the bar exam due to the reasons expounded on by the FL Bar (deadbeat dad, being a future heaping bag of embarrassment to the legal profession, etc). Then he repaired his finances, & convinced the FL Bar, through the slicker English writing skills of a former colleague & better lawyer in his sleep than he ever will be awake, he had this former colleague write a persuasive brief to the FL Bar & the FL Bar admitted him to take the exam all those 8 yrs later, which he did & he passed on the first try.

    (My very smart sister, whose a/c unit was removed & cleaned with a caustic agent & replace the night before her bar exam, ended up going to the ER that night before…she passed her first day of the bar exam but not the second day. While she waited to take the second bar exam, she worked for Robert Duvall’s (the actor) brother’s law firm as a legal researcher. She waited a year to retake, which she did with flying colors…went on to a solid career as a Public Defender & as a Prosecutor. She rotates in as a Judge on some cases also. She won her first 4 trials, one of which was a murder case, as a PD against another woman she’d graduated with who was their law school “valedictorian”. So much for what passing the bar the first time means.

    • Venice February 17, 2011 at 10:16 am #

      Thanks. I stand corrected 🙂

    Anytime a person doesn’t pay the traffic ticket fine on time, their license is automatically suspended & a fee is incurred on top of the traffic ticket fine. Lots of people think they’ve done all they had to by paying the ticket, & don’t realize their license has been suspended on this particular technicality, so they fail to pay the suspension fee, & thus drive on a suspended license. If they’re stopped for another traffic violation while on a suspended license, their car is impounded. Bozo is not the only one. Although, given his stint as a DUI/traffic attorney, he “ought” to know better than most people. Gee, a lapse in good judgment from Bozo….what next? lying in written motions to the Court? Tampering with Witnesses, Harassing Witnesses, & Falsifying documents & colluding to get them mixed in with originals? Puhshaw! Not Bozo! ROFL.

    If I recall correctly Mr Baez was hired to teach students how to prepare for trial. I have an article that maintains that students at Florida A&M University College of Law were hired by Mr Baez to prepare the Motion to Sanction the prosecutors for what they believe to be “egregious” mistakes relative to evidence/published discovery.

    The pdf doc# is 18565684 (submitted on or about 1/23/2009)

    The gist of the motion is as follows:
    -10/10/2008 defendant was ordered/allowed to view the evidence
    -11/04/2008 Dr Lee asked to see “white garbage bag”
    -Dr Lee wished to photograph the “white garbage bag” and the garbage
    -12/04/2008 Neither Dr Haskell or Dr. D.David Hall’s names were on the State’s Witness List
    -1/29/2009 Discovery pages 3221,3224,3225 Haskell was retained as expert as early as 9/2008 (evidence was shipped to Dr Haskell on 10/07/2008
    -10/23/2008 Dr Haskell found hair in trunk on 10/23/2008 and no notice was given to defendant and no one was aware that Dr Haskell was doing discovery as an expert witness
    -State says no expert reports but motion says state didn’t mention they had evidence
    -David Hall received evidence
    -11/07/2008 FBI received evidence -no reports turned over to defense
    -media said reports would be forthcoming but the discovery published/released came from July 20008
    -failure to identify and disclose

    He was hired to teach and he in turn hires others to do what? Write that motion?

    While baez was able to finaly pass his bar exam it seems he has a problem with retention of that knowledge. This lawyer is beyond his scope of litigating that he has resorted to what he knows best, street punk behavior.

    Mr Baez is going to get an old boyfriend to authenticate the diary entry-perhaps the year she wrote it? Ms Anthony never denied writing it so why doesn’t she just tell Mr Baez the state of mind she was in when she memorialized a significant life event in such upbeat and glowing terms.

    Can’t she tell him what she did that made her the happiest she had been in a very long time? How did this event augment her ability to “trust her own judgements”? What about the new friends she had made? Were they aware of the new and improved Casey?

    I made the comment about Baez passing the bar on his first try only because it was being stated it took 8 tries and that was not true. 8 Years before he was allowed to practice law was certainly true.

    I also pointed out that he was a 9th grade high school dropout and a dad at 17. Those are some pretty serious obstacles to overcome to become an attorney. Of course it helps when you don’t bother to pay child support and live the life of a single man rather then a dad.

    Katprint shared her own story of going back to school as a single mom and against all odds was successful. Smart lady. I was just saying, let’s give credit where credit is due. Baez did pass the bar on his first try. He has to have some smarts. But he’ll never be Bailey and neither is Mason. They just think they’re of the same caliber.

    And I agree Bullstopper, I’m sure Baez has black, brown, tan and hunter green belts in his closet.

    HE OUGHT TO BE SHOT.

  24. sista sylv July 6, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    Baez is a complete immorral man. He wanted to win at any cause. I am surprised that Attorney Mason wouyld even get involved with a fool like Baez. He probably slept with poor Casey. I also heard that his home was foreclosed. He was told the truth by Casey. He just wanted to become famous by any means necessary. I hope he is disbarred. I want the bar to investigate him. He probably dont even have a GED. I want federal prosecutors also to look indebt in to his life. He is probably an illegal immigrant. What is he lieing to the world about? He was too dirty in this case. He gotta be a dirty lowdown lieing thief. He need to be watched closely. I guess him and Casey will run off together after her book deal. He lied to the jury! I hope charges will be brought up against him. He might have moved the body for Casey just to win a case. He’s low class. He’s going to get what’s coming and so is Casey. Thank God for Jesus. I believe he is a part of the after crime.
