Obama nominates Palm Beach judge to federal bench

@jayhweaver

President Barack Obama on Wednesday nominated Palm Beach Circuit Judge Robin L. Rosenberg to the federal bench in the Southern District of Florida.

“Judge Rosenberg has a long and impressive record of service, and I am confident she will serve on the federal bench with distinction,” Obama said in a statement.

She has been a circuit judge since 2007, and previously worked in her own law firm, as general counsel at Slim-Fast Foods Co., as a partner at Holland & Knight and as an assistant city attorney for West Palm Beach. She had also served as a trial attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and worked at a nonprofit organization in the Czech Republic.

Rosenberg began her career as a law clerk to U.S. District Judge James C. Paine after receiving her law degree from Duke University in 1989 and her B.A. from Princeton University in 1983.

Rosenberg, if confirmed by the Senate, will fill the vacancy left by former U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan, who was elevated to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.

The people are tired of seeing their legal system degrade with the nomination of these lady judges. A predictable legal system is necessary for our free market system to function properly and having judges that are subject to wild emotional swings and problems at certain times of the month does not produce rational results.

Palm Beach Corruption

Rosenberg is under FBI investigation along with her husband, former Palm Beach SA Michael McAuliffe and her business partner, Attorney Michael Gelfand. Both Rosenberg & Gelfand founded ARC Mediation and have used Rosenberg's judicial position at the 15th circuit to help Gelfand's law firm, Gelfand & Arpe, gain non jury verdicts with large financial settlements. Rosenberg and her business partner allegedly violated RICO Act violations through the court system. Both ARC Mediation and Gelfand & Arpe share the same office space in West Palm Beach.
