The Miami choose who used employees to run private errands resigns
MIAMI – A judge in South Florida who publicly assumed responsibility for skipping the job and getting his staff to run personal errands for him has resigned.
The Miami Herald reports that Miami-Dade Circuit judge Martin Zilber filed his letter of resignation on Friday while facing disciplinary proceedings on allegations of misconduct.
The State Judicial Qualifications Commission found that the judge’s routine mistreatment of his staff included verbally abusing his judicial assistant. The commission also found that Zilber had sent his bailiff to run errands for him while he was on the clock.
The judge was absent from the courthouse for 51 days between January 2019 and March 2020 without notifying superiors.
The commission also found that he often left early.
