Jared Strauss is a nice enough guy who has about a tenth of the experience that Steve Petri does.

Shouldn’t be a surprise that a court of prosecutors wants prosecutors as magistrate judges:

Yet another prosecutor picked as a Mag

Rumpole was right

11:25 HUH?

Including Judge Strauss, the last SEVEN individuals selected as United States Magistrate Judges in the Southern District of Florida have ONE thing in common: being an Assistant United States Attorney. That is one heck of a run.
Rumpole doesn't need anyone to speak for him, but I believe his point was that the district court judges have made it clear that if you are not a prosecutor or a former prosecutor - don't even bother applying. And on that point, he was right.

Judge Louis was on the CJA panel for years. She is also a former prosecutor, but so are a ton of defense attorneys.

Judge Otazo Reyes was not a former prosecutor last time I checked

ditto brannon WPB, Hunt in FTL and Matthewman

facts can be so annoying

Snow was an superpivor at US attorney's office when she became a mag.

Hopefully Magistrate Strauss will bring the same honor to the bench as Johnny K.
