Show me the money

At LifeSteward, we are directed to a story about the U of FL demand for Judge Greer's recusal.

My question:

Underlying these calls for Greer's impeachment/recusal is the notion that he hasn't applied the law correctly, and that his personal feelings have gotten in the way of good decisions. For that to be half-way plausible, though, there'd have to be a showing of how he's misapplied or ignored law.

While there have been vague mentions of FL statutes and general legal principles, no one has done the hard work of trawling through FL case law to discuss how, specifically, Greer has dropped the ball. Absent that, the Terry-bloggers' efforts look like nothing so much as sour grapes: ya don't like the law, so blame the judge.

With that in mind, are there any in-depth critiques of Greer's decisions? Alternately, is there somewhere I can go to read his decisions (I've already checked out the appellate decisions, which are of limited use)?
