Broward Divorce Attorneys Face Danger In Courthouse When Man Enters With Weapon

The Sun Sentinel is reporting that a man entered the Broward County Courthouse today at 9:25 A.M., pointed a gun at his chest and demanded to speak to a judge about his divorce. After being informed about the situation, retired Circuit Judge Joel Lazarus agreed to speak to the man provided that he gave the gun, which was loaded with a bullet, to authorities. Judge Lazarus spoke to Marin Stroia, 59, of Oakland Park for approximately 10-15 minutes. After complaining about his divorce case, Judge Lazarus advised Stroia that he could provide his written concerns about his divorce case to the judge and that they would be forwarded to Chief Judge Victor Tobin. Stroia was taken into police custody without any further problems.
