Palm Beach County judge under unprecedented fire, accused of bias

The most interesting part of the State’s motion to recuse Judge Cohen is that all it does is allege his comments about the justice system. In not one instance is the State able to give an example of Judge Cohen ignoring the law to follow his personal opinions. They couldn’t give an example because Judge Cohen may have particular opinions that go against State Attorney’s Office policy but he puts aside his opinions and bases his legal decisions on the law. Rather than blaming the presiding judge, the State Attorney’s Office needs to understand that sometimes they have a weak case, that sometimes the law is not on their side, and that sometimes a defendant does not deserve a lengthy prison sentence.
