Breaking — Florida Supreme Court Nominees Announced! World Yawns.


OK this list made me weep and not in a good way, but again all I can say is it could have been a whole lot worse:

For Cantero’s vacancy, the commission choose: Judge Charles Canady, 54, Lakeland, Second District Court of Appeal; Judge Kevin Emas, 50, Miami, 11th Judicial Circuit; Edward G. Guedes, 44, Miami, attorney; Judge Jorge Labarga, 55, West Palm Beach, 15th Judicial Circuit; and Judge Vincent G. Torpy Jr., 52, Daytona Beach, Fifth District Court of Appeal.

For Bell’s vacancy, the commission choose: Judge Ricky L. Polston, 52, Tallahassee, First District Court of Appeal; Judge Waddell A. Wallace, III, 55, Jacksonville, Fourth Judicial Circuit; Judge Peter D. Webster, 59, Tallahassee, First District Court of Appeal.

So all women applicants were rejected, and Frank Jimenez.

Ok, that didn’t come out right, but you know what I mean.
