Doug Muir: Motion for Relie... by on Scribd

Doug Muir has shown himself to be low key, methodical, and most of all  tenacious.

Muir was the first person to recognize that the backroom deal orchestrated between Francis Suarez and Jorge Mas on behalf of the other deep pocket BILLIONAIRES who wanted Melreese Golf Course for their own personal major development opportunity was a bad deal for the residents of Miami, and so, because he was an attorney, he did what you would want anyone with a law degree and a sense of public service to do when their sense of right and wrong is awoken, he filed a lawsuit challenging the deal.

As is often the case, the Circuit Court judge who was assigned the case saw no value in spending time or effort in actually doing what the taxpayers expect a judge to do, and instead he quickly denied Muir's challenge, and watched the case go off the the 3rd DCA.

I've posted Muir's pleading along the way, and this latest action continues to show the kind of legal work that you'd want if you if you were paying for it. In this case, the citizens are not, but if he prevails, he ought, at the very least to get a Key to the city and a day named after him.

What Muir has done is that he's discovered an entirely new argument - one that no one else had found to challenge the referendum, and because his original case is already before the 3rd DCA, what he's doing with this motion is asking the 3rd DCA for permission to submit this new argument to the Circuit Court judge so he can either hear it, or do what he did with his original legla action, dismiss it, and then that would allow Muir to consolidate this argument, along with his previous arguments to be heard by the 3rd DCA.

This is largely inside the ball park legal maneuvering, but it's the kind of maneuvering that illustrates that Muir has taken this case very seriously, and is spending the time and energy in making sure he leaves no stone unturned.

FRANCIS SUAREZ THINKS THAT THE BEST PERK OF BEING MAYOR OF MIAMI IS GETTING TO PRETEND HE'S IN A GROWNUP VERSION OF WANNADO CITY

A lot of folks now think that Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is a lying, conniving, politician seeking to become a power hungry petty dictator if next week's referendum question allowing him to become Strong Mayor passes.

They could be right, but there's another side to Francis Suarez that is being revealed, and that is that he's still very much a small boy who needs to play dress up, and being Mayor of Miami seems to be a perfect job to feed that need.

Who would deny the Mayor of Miami the opportunity to dress up like a race car driver, and even get in the car likes he's getting ready to go around the track a couple hundred miles, or almost every boy's favorite fantasy, dress up like a fireman.

In Miami, the Boy Mayor has been a race car driver, a fireman, and if the $3,230.634.66 he's raised in contributions to his campaign to become Stong Mayor carry the day, then he'll get to dress up like a petty dictator too!

It's Miami, Bitches!
