BY BUDDY NEVINS

 

The Florida Supreme Court has formally dropped any charges against former Broward Circuit Judge John P. Contini. 

At the same time, Contini has agreed lose his license to practice law for five years.  The link to the documents concerning his disbarment are here.

 

 

John Contini

 

The Judicial Qualifications Commission withdrew the charges a month ago. The justices affirmed the JQC decision today.

Contini had been charged by the JQC with misconduct for, among other allegations, faking his court docket to create fictitious cases to disguise his absences.

The reason for the dismissal of the charges was not given by the JQC. The dismissal cites a rule that allows the JQC to dismiss charges against a judge who already resigned.

Contini resigned roughly a month before being charged.

    Sweet deal: 5 year disbarment. He was a total embarrassment, lied and betrayed the public trust, but is “active in his church” and attends “bible study.” Pathetic.

    This is the predictable result of electing judges.
