From a Florida Bar Complaint Filed by Don Juravin Against Marc Randazza
Mr. Randazza through his unrelentless pursuit to bring about the demise of Mr. Juravin bribed his previous counsel Cynthia Koroll to provide confidential and privilege information communication From Mr. Juravin in exchange for free legal representation. This fraudulently obtained information was used against Mr. Juravin to his detriment.
Ms. Koroll has been subject to discipline by her state bar. However, Mr. Randazza has yet again evaded justice and will continue to do so until the Florida Bar holds him accountable for all his violations of the ethical rules. He has continuously acted in bad and to the detriment of everyone who he deems an adversary. His unrelentless and auspicious record of success evading justice and the rule of law encourages him to continue to break the ethical rules as there have been no determinative consequences for his bad actions.
The bribery that occurred with Cynthia Koroll is no different than the one that he committed previously. Given the bribery allegations that were substantiated against a member of the Pissed Consumer Legal Group (see attached Exhibit G, Arbitration award which found among other things that Mr. Randazza negotiated a $75,000 bribe), Mr. Juravin is certain that this repeated pattern of bribery and its recurrence will persists not only against him but against member of the public at large who the Florida Bar has sworn to protect and serve.
