Justice Retires

September 4th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Justice Raoul Cantero is leaving the Florida Supreme Court. Appointed by Jeb Bush, he is the first Cuban born justice on the states high court. Cantero is leaving the court to practice law in Miami. Today, the court and Governor paid tribute to the retiring justice.

You have served with incredible distinction and honor, Governor Crist said. And what you have done for the people, along with your wonderful, esteemed colleagues, is extraordinary. Public service is a calling. And you have another calling now, and we all appreciate that.

Cantero was part of the seven-nothing majority that yesterday took the tax swap and two school voucher amendments off the November ballot. Charlie Crist has already named Appeals Court Judge Charles Canady to replace Cantero. Canady takes over the job next week.
