Jose Baez’ request to meet privately with Judge Strickland DENIED
Judge Strickland has refused to meet privately with Jose Baez to discuss the defense request to keep their strategy secret. Bumbling Baez filed his request in the WRONG case file, so there was a lot of confusion at first. Once it finally made it to Judge Strickland’s office it was turned down flat.
In Strickland’s order denying the motion, he said Baez’ request to discuss sensitive matters off camera was just not possible as a part of a particular Florida Criminal Rule.
That rule says an “in camera” inspection” and “ex parte proceeding” are not the same and the ex parte proceeding is only proper where permitted by law. No legal authority has been provided to allow such a hearing under the circumstances of Baez’ motion.

Shouldn’t he have known this before he filed his request? Where’s Linda Kenny-Biden? Isn’t she a seasoned attorney and wouldn’t SHE have known this? Maybe she wouldn’t if this is just a Florida rule. I wonder if his law student’s are gonna start wanting their money back from the college?
