Justice Resigns

May 23rd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Florida Supreme Court Justice Kenneth B. Bell announced his resignation Friday.. In a letter to the governor the Justice cited family reasons and says he plans to return to his hometown of Pensacola. Bell was appointed by Governor Jeb Bush in 2002. He is the first Justice appointed from the far Western Panhandle in the states history.

Charlie Crist now has two vacancies to fill. He will likely have two more before the end of the year as Justice Harry Lee Anstead and Justice Charles Wells are slated for mandatory retirement.
