another question---my exes atty rhoda sokoloff is running for circuit cty judge in my cty---at the same time she is representing my ex---are there any ethics violations here???
State/Country relating to question: Florida
HiAs long as she is not a Judge now, she is not violating any ethics or laws. She is entitled to hold a job and also run for an elected office. However, if she gets elected, she will then have to find another attorney to take over her open cases if she cannot have them complete and closed by the time she gets sworn in.If you have further questions, please let me know. Thank you.
if i go to a campaign rally of hers and heckle her---do i risk any problems?
HiYou risk being removed from the arena. But not as to your case. Keep in mind, that should she win, it may be beneficial to you as she will be looking to close out cases rather quickly. Your ex's may be one of those cases, which means she may tell him to do something that she normally would fight for.
removal is not arrest---correct
HiThat is correct. And, I suggest if you are not a threat as with bombs or firearms, eggs or other weapons of mass destruction, she will not want you arrested. You may get tazed. They like to taze people
