Judge Seidlin to preside over 'The Crying Court'



Tbdseidlin062007 Although we can’t confirm the reasons why, judge Larry Seidlin, who presided of the Anna Nicole Smith circus and spent nearly 29 years on the bench, will resign next month, a court spokesman told the AP on Tuesday.

A letter to Gov. Charlie Crist says, “it is now time for me to devote more of my daily life to my own young family and to pursue the many opportunities that have been offered to me outside the judicial system and I have disregarded until now.”

Whether that means he’s getting some goofball TV court show after July 31 is anyone’s guess, but he’ll be fine as long as he doesn’t go back to driving cabs.
