How did Bill Windsor get on Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton’s Radar Screen?
By becoming the third judge in Bill Windsor’s case against the 18-Wheeler that almost killed him twice.
Bill Windsor believes Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton appeared in the case solely for the purpose of damaging William Windsor and ensuring that he would lose.
Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton somehow took over Case 201`8-CA-010270-O following the retirement of Judge John Marshall Kest. The Docket does not show an assignment of Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton while an 8/25/2020 Docket Entry showed the assignment to Judge John Marshall Kest following Judge Lisa T. Munyon’s recusal.
Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton first showed up in the case on `1/28/2021 when he denied William Windsor’s Motion for Stay. Within five days, he entered five orders adverse to Windsor and five orders favorable to the Defendants.
It took Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton just 54 minutes to enter an Order denying William Windsor’s 42-page Motion to Disqualify or Recuse that cited 48 cases, multiple statutes and rules and the Constitution. He couldn’t even read 42 pages that quickly much less research anything. His claim about the documents (he couldn’t have even read) was that “Adverse rulings do not support a reasonable fear of personal bias. Rivera v. State, 717 So. 2d 477 (Fla. 1998).” Windsor’s Motion to Disqualify or Recuse included far more. Jeff Ashton didn’t address what he obviously didn’t read. He violated the rules, as he always did.
Rivera was a prisoner under sentence of death. The ruling in the case is much more than a claim about prior decisions. The Court said: “We have repeatedly held that a motion to disqualify a judge ‘must be well-founded and contain facts germane to the judge’s undue bias, prejudice, or sympathy.'” “Rivera did not proffer legally sufficient reasons requiring the judge’s disqualification.”
Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton is simply corrupt.
On 1/30/2021, William Windsor filed a Second Emergency Motion for Stay as a hearing was scheduled for 2/2/2021 when Windsor would be in the hospital.
Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton held a hearing without William Windsor on 2/2/2021. The Court Minutes show he refused to reconsider orders of Judge John Marshall Kest that were issued without the required hearings. He awarded $2,500 in sanctions against Bill Windsor for doing nothing improper and completely ignoring Windsor’s indigence and inability to pay.
Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton is simply corrupt, evil, dishonest, and a liar.
It was clear to Bill Windsor that Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton was prejudiced and biased. Looking back after all that has happened since, Bill Windsor believes Judge Jeffrey L. Ashton appeared in the case solely for the purpose of damaging William Windsor and ensuring that he would lose. Jeff Ashton is corrupt. I wonder how many defendants he abused as a prosecutor. I plan to contact every law firm that was on the losing side when dealing with Jeffrey L. Ashton. I’d be happy if Jeff Ashton spends the rest of his life in prison.
