Judge John Murphy and Assistant Public Defender Andrew Weinstock apparently exchanged words about a case after Weinstock refused to waive a client’s right to a speedy trial.

“You know, if I had a rock I would throw it at you right now,” Judge Murphy tells Weinstock during the verbal altercation. “Stop pissing me off. Just sit down.”

The two exchanged words and Judge Murphy allegedly told Weinstock, “If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass.”

Weinstock then says “Let’s go,” and walks out the courtroom.

The two men apparently met in a nearby hallway, an area where there are no cameras, and a fight broke out.

“The attorney said that immediately upon entering the hallway he was grabbed by the collar and began to be struck,” Blaise Trettis, public defender of the 18th Judicial Court. “There was no discussion, no talk, not even time for anything. Just as soon as they’re in the hallway, the attorney was grabbed.”

Trettis told Florida Now Weinstock was struck in the head.

The courtroom camera captured audio of the scuffle. During the fight, one man can be heard screaming “You want to f*** with me?”

Deputies responded to break up the altercation.

The judge returned to the courtroom and finished ruling over court appearances.

Judge Murphy was not charged but could be disciplined, according to the report.

  1. Shameful and distasteful court manners. This judge needs to be suspended
    and made an example of. Furthermore, assault charges should be in order and
    a fine or better yet have him removed. I’m absolutely sure the Florida Bar
    Association will take matters into their own hands. The governor should
    remove this judge. Judges need to stick to rule of law and this judge only
    brings disgrace to the courtroom. Mauro.

  2. I see a lawyer that going to be up on assault charges and getting his
    license rebuked ……………what a moron!!!

  3. Did anyone catch the dialog after they went out side? It sounded like:

    Judge Murphy – “(I) know how to fight you! You wanna fuck with me?! Do
    you?!”
    Weinstock – “Alright!”
    Jury member – “That’s what I like to hear!”

    Those bailiffs had to have had the greatest WTF moment of their lives. Same
    for the perp.

  4. Since this faggot judge thinks he can abuse his powers like this, I think
    the governor should do the same and execute him publicly.

    And make the family pay for the bullet(s).

  5. Clearly this judge and attorney have a history previous to this encounter.
    I don’t know about Florida, but judges in other states can charge lawyers
    with contempt of court and throw their butts in jail when they get smart
    with them. If I were sitting their at arraignment you can bet that in my
    trial this would come up. I don’t know if it would change anything but the
    subject would come up.

  6. Is it too much for people in courtrooms to be fucking MACHINES? Be a
    machine don’t let any language or attitude make you speak out about
    someone. Keep your head on straight and do your job and show no emotion.

  7. You know what needs to happen to people like that? They get F I R E D
    FIRED! Why don’t you get fired, stupid judge.
