JBP is a judge and if he believes JB did something unethical or illegal he has to follow the law and make him pay the consequences. If he doesn't, he'll set a precedent for other attorneys to act just like JB.
BTW, a bit off topic, but you know one of the main things that drove me NUTS about JB? In court he kept addressing JBP as "Judge" and not "your honour". I thought was so disrespectful! Somebody must have gotten to him, because he started calling him Your Honour toward the end of trial.
I noticed that during the final reading of the sentence for lying, the Judge primarily addressed CM. Baez was instructed to do any paperwork that Ms Anthony may want to file regarding an appeal, but Mason seemed to be the lead lawyer at the end of the case. That suggests to me that the Judge is going to follow through on preparing some sort of complaint against Baez. It also seemed clear to me that the Judge was informing Baez that he would be dismissed from the State's payroll after filing any appeal papers and that if Ms Anthony chose to appeal, another lawyer may be assigned.

In no way should any of my statements be construed as legal opinion or advice. I am a newly practicing lawyer (yay!) but not a verified poster here at WS. The above statement(s) are an expression of my personal opinion, for entertainment purposes only, and copyright.
JB is and was a bottom feeder and happen to find his ticket to ride..and it will be up to Caylee "Just Us for Caylee" to make sure whatever and whomever he wishes to contract with will avoid this masty, low blow attny to prosper due to his actions!! The "Jurors" were snow'd and brainwashed..and I balme the Death Penalty venue
DP is something each and every prosecuting attny needs to undersatand just when to go for LWOP and lessors thus no need to DP qualify..
BTW I mis-typed qualify..but after watching JB,CM and especially AF..I tend to believe its a Quantify...and embed their (DT) "MERCY" thoughts...I was always worried that JP allowed this?..and somehow..DT programmed this jury NOT to look at evidence..only the Dysfunctions..GEEEEEESSGGGGHHHH!!
IMO..No Lawyer should be abe to ask a potential juror their thoughts on "Mercy"!!
I think that in this case HHJP should definitely sanction JB for the discovery issues or this will be allowed to occur in other courts. I wonder if there is a way to find out if he has done so, or will do so.
I think JB should be in BIG trouble for alleging sexual abuse. I mean, he admits his client is a huge liar and then he says she was in a incestual relationship EVEN at age 13 and HE (Baez) BELIEVED THAT???? Gimme a break!
With that said, I would bet that even if sanctions do happen, the Florida Bar will not do much of anything to JB.
I absolutely think JP will follow through. The Bar isn't a big fan of JB's to start and this won't help any but in the end he prob pays a fine and is censured. I'm also not so sure JB continues as a lawyer. I think he would prefer to be TH. This verdict aside I still wouldn't hire him and I don't think I'm alone.

Where will Casey be when lightening strikes the third time....hmmm?
And if this is true that I snipped from the "All Sorts Of People Suing Casey" thread,perhaps he can be given some new punishments...

Did JB forget the defense's theory or has the truth come out!!!

Any word or update at all on JBP's actions re:sanctions against JB? I haven't heard any reference to it anywhere?
This is my opinion and my opinion only. I welcome all views and debates from any and all positions! To treat you with respect shows that I respect myself!
I am so sorry that this earthbound effort to win justice for you failed so badly. But know we will NEVER forget you and never stop praying for the Universe to set this right for you. Rest In Peace Precious Little One

Hope I am not posting off-topic, but could not find a more appropriate thread for this.
Baez, who was born in Puerto Rico and raised in New York and Florida, had to take a winding path to becoming a criminal lawyer, even after he graduated law school. He passed the written test for the Florida Bar, but he was denied admission by the Florida Board of Bar Examiners because of a list of complaints about his personal and financial conduct.
The Florida Supreme Court upheld the bar's decision in 2000 for not paying child support for a daughter he had with his first wife and for what it called "very serious doubts as to his respect for the rights of others and for the law," like writing worthless checks.
I'd not heard this before!
This is so ironic. Birds of a Feather......
Right at 2:07 it was stated that the Florida Bar is investigating whether Jose Baez intentionally ignored court orders about defense experts. The Florida Bar said they read about the alleged infractions in the media.
And about Cheney Mason flipping the bird at the party. Another lawyer made this complaint.
Well the good thing is that they started this investigation on Baez without a complaint. That tells me they want to know what happened.
I have lost my faith a lot since watching this trial, unfortunately. Although I love the justice system and the law I'm disappointed watching it be manipulated by the Defense team. And I'm so deeply saddened that a murderer will walk free on Sunday and will be partying it up like there's no tomorrow that same night.
Having said that I no longer hold any hope that anyone including JB and CM will be held accountable for what they may have or may have neglected to do in this case. It's over and I'm saddened that this will now become the status quo. I would like to think HHJP will do the right thing, but I've just lost any sort of hope that anyone will do the right thing. I thought for certain 12 people would be intelligent enough to do what was proper and they failed, failed miserably. So I don't think I can muster up the hope to think that JB will be held anymore accountable than his murdering client.

John Gotti was named the Teflon Don, I think that name fit's the entire Anthony entourage, including everyone from ICA (yes, to me still an Inmate) the entire Anthony family to the entire Defense Team. They will all go on their merry way without a care in the world. They won and nothing will stick. With that said, I believe very strongly in Karma, and what you give you will get back tenfold. Life is funny that way. Note to self, have patience.
It's always Just My Opinion
I wonder...why would JB ask DC to notify him rather than LE if DC found Caylee's body?
Follow me here...If good ol' George was the one to take and get rid of Caylee against KC's wishes, wouldn't the defense want LE to be able to find Caylee and gather evidence against George or gather evidence of a drowning? Isn't the defense, by inference in their story, postulating that KC could not tell them where Caylee was because she did not know? Sure she was forced to lie about the drowning or George the Boogey Molester would come get her, but JB never said KC did not want the body found.
At any rate, I wonder what the bar ever did with that complaint. I find it deplorable that he asked DC to do that, and I actually believe DC because I think the pressure was getting to him and he wanted the monkey off of his back before the state got it out of him.
ETA-My question above is rhetorical-I know why Jose wanted DC to do that. Yet another thing I wish would have slipped out of DC's mouth on the stand, so that the jury would lose faith in their best buddy Baez.
I think DC's complaint to the bar was because JB did not pay him for his services. I could be mistaken but I think that is what happened. During DC's depo he came out with JB told him to call him if DC found the body and suddenly DC wanted to go off tape. I don't think we heard it again.
Anyone think JB may be looking for a new place to live? Maybe he is the one interested in PR. jmo
