Miami-Dade Circuit judge Martin Zilber faces discipline after admitting and apologizing for mistreating his staff and taking unauthorized absences.
It is a disciplinary case that draws attention to the imbalance of power between a judge and his assistants, as Zilber was accused of being moderate to his bailiff and judicial assistant and asked them to do personal chores for him, including online Shopping, scrapbooking, and registering his car, which refused to allow his attendant to work overtime, regularly left the courthouse prematurely, and reported no absences.
