Howard Forman says he'll be a no-show at forum about him

Broward Chief Judge Victor Tobin has organized a forum about the Clerk of Courts office to be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the courthouse.

But Clerk of Courts Howard Forman said he isn't coming.

"I will not be in attendance at your inappropriate and unprecedented August 6th Forum,'' Forman wrote in a letter to Tobin today. "Please correct immediately your website notice that implies that this forum will be held in conjunction with the Clerk of Courts. This was never discussed with me and I did not give you permission to announce my attendance or participation.''

Forman said he's happy to meet with Tobin -- but not at this forum which is open to the public. The duo have been feuding about Forman's management of his office for months.
