Florida: 'Marijuana Court' Judge Caught Drunk On The Job

A Florida judge apparently came to work drunk last week, and her inebriated antics at the bench caused such an uproar that the chief judge had to take things in hand.

Pollack came into a Broward County court obviously drunk last week, calling for her staff to be fired, reports Deirdra Funcheon at the Broward-Palm Beach New Times. Chief Judge Peter Weinstein reportedly had to be called out of a meeting to personally remove the juiced judge from the courtroom.

"The staff tried to keep the judge off the bench," reports Red Broward at The Daily Broward. "The Judge's response was basically "Fuck you; you're fired."

Broward himself declined to name the drunken judge, but her name was soon revealed on Jaablog, an insider blog targeted to lawyers and judges, and Broward Beat soon also named her.

The judge had been "writing irrational emails" lately, according to Broward Beat. One recent day, Judge Pollack was seen entering the courthouse through an exit door, according to a source, a security no-no.
