Did Anna Judge Exchange Favors for ... Purses?

6/28/2007 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry SeidlinJudge Larry Seidlin allegedly had an attorney purchase a $1,000 purse for his wife -- in exchange for a regular gig in his court, as reported by the Broward-Palm Beach New Times today.

According to the paper, Seidlin regularly appointed Lawrence "Chris" Roberts as a Special Public Defender in the Juvenile Court -- a job that paid $350 a case. Roberts tells the New Times that on one occasion, he passed Seidlin in the hall and the judge slipped him a tag for a Louis Vuitton purse. Roberts says the judge then suggested his wife would love the purse for a birthday gift.

"The implication was that if I didn't do this, the appointments would dry up," Roberts said.

Roberts told the New Times he had his assistant buy the purse and eventually met Seidlin in a parking lot to deliver it. Roberts alleges this wasn't the only time this happened.

Seidlin's wife, Belinda, refuted the allegations to the New Times, saying, "There is no way Larry would do anything like that. He is so careful, and he's not stupid. He would never do anything that's not appropriate or not right."

Anybody who knows anything about the (so called) justice system in the USA knows it all boils down to $$$. Amazing how you can get off when your (pricey) attorney meets the judge in chambers! Poor people don`t have a chance! Judges are a joke...and why should this guy be any different?

I just watched the video of the spice girls at some photo shoot. Did anyone notice that "Posh" was swinging around an American flag with no regard to the fact that it was hitting the ground? She needs a few lessons before she lives here permanetly.

In Texas, judges are elected. I don't know about other states, but if they elect them, WHY HIM? Hopefully he is not adding to the sperm pool.

Judge Seidlin never do anything not appropriate or not right? C'mon lady - did you actually see your husband in the courtroom in the ANS hearings? He was completely disrespectful of the dead - the way he referred to Anna Nicole's body (repeatedly) was definitely NOT appropriate and NOT right. Enjoy the purse!

There is no telling what thisguy would do. That emotional crap he displayed at the Anna Nicole Smith Trial was so much show business for tv, it stunk. H railraoded Virgie, Birkhead, and Stern into all going out the door holding hands. All the time one of those people would end up losing, and that person was Vergie. Stern may not have gained much either, . And he didnt deserve to. This judge was a joke, period. Anyone who couldnt have seen the evil behind howard Stern was a bind bat, This judge was as blind as any could be.

His wife said he would never do anything that was inappropriate or not right.

I think everyone saw how he dragged out burying Anna just to keep himself in the spotlight. Could there be anything more inappropriate then that? He is a self serving pompous azz.
