Judge Not

The Florida Supreme Court has issued an opinion advising Governor Crist that he may not issue a commission to a suspended lawyer for the position of circuit court judge. The suspended lawyer had been elected to the judgeship. In order to qualify for the judicial commission, a lawyer must be a member of the bar in good standing. The proposed appointee is subject to a 91 day suspension from practice effective January 2, 2009.
