Crist to Reshape State’s Highest Court

May 28th, 2008 by flanews

Governor’s Charlie Crist will have a unique opportunity to reshape the state’s highest court. At least four of the Seven Florida Supreme Court Justices will step down before the end of the Governor’s first term. Crist will be able to pick their replacements from a small pool of nominees. Crist said he is looking to appoint justices with strong character.

“What I will look for are people number one of great integrity, that have caring hearts, that are truly compassionate and willing to serve,” said Crist.

Two justices are leaving for personal reasons. Two more are being forced out because they’ll turn 70, the mandatory retirement age. This is the most turnover the state Supreme Court has seen since three judges stepped down in 1975.
