Florida Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the State of Florida is the highest court in the U.S. state of Florida. The Supreme Court consists of seven judges: the Chief Justice and six Justices who are appointed by the Governor to 6-year terms and remain in office if retained in a general election near the end of each term.

"Namely, I find that the evidence before me is insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof," the ruling says. Florida State President John Thrasher commended the work of Harding, a former chief justice of the Florida Supreme Court. "He conducted a thorough Student Conduct Code hearing and reviewed more than 1,000 pages of evidence generated by three other investigations, and we would like to thank him sincerely for his service," Thrasher said.

Dear Friends and Supporters, As you may have already heard, yesterday a Florida court outrageously invalidated the state's congressional district map which had been drawn by the Florida Legislature in 2012. This decision has created great uncertainty as to the final composition of all of Florida's congressional districts, including CD 26 in South Florida, for which I am a candidate. In essence, liberal activist judges are hijacking the reapportionment process and holding congressional candidates like myself hostage until the appeals process concludes at the liberal Democrat-dominated Florida Supreme Court (see Bush v. Gore 2000). As a congressional candidate affected by this decision, I will not be held hostage by Florida's liberal activist judges. After consulting with state legislative leaders and reapportionment attorneys, and pending further clarification of this court decision, I have decided to suspend campaigning for CD 26 and will launch my candidacy to the Florida State House of Representatives f ...

Another child was hit by a car on Daytona Beach. According to the Florida Supreme Court, sun bathers and recreational users have a paramount right over any vehicular traffic to use the fore-shore. The fore-shore is that part of the tidal beach where the most fun happens. The State holds it "in trust" for you and me. This trust is regularly Volusia County. The County has recklessly ran over several women who were sunbathing and does little to restrict recreational drivers from mowing down children. It's shameful.

We cannot afford to be complacent! 2- the next Florida Governor will have 3 judicial appointments to the Florida Supreme Court, which already tilts left. 3- Under Gov. Scott's leadership, Florida now has a 6% unemployment rate, and a budget surplus for the first time in 5 years. 4- Charlie Crist WILL pursue doing away with "Stand your Ground" 5- Charlie Crist WILL increase taxes. 6- Charlie Crist WILL pursue implementing a minimum wage hike, which is bad for consumers, businesses, and job growth. 7- Charlie Crist WILL be a rubber stamp for Obama, Holder, Reid, & Pelosi. 8- Gov.

In 2003 Jeb Bush Allowed This woman to be murdered by slow starvation. You might forget this Mans evil but I won't allow him to live without hearing of his terrible sin against this woman he had the power to save as Governor. This Man and Hillary Clinton are both Murderers and have no business being in office.

Gun control is the last stand of Jim Crow. Meanwhile, other laws imposed licensing systems or carry restrictions. As a Florida Supreme Court justice later acknowledged, these laws were “never intended to be applied to the white population” (Watson v. Stone, 1941).
This excerpt from the "Miami Herald" is irritating me. "(Juan Carlos) Chavez’s lawyer, Robert Norgard, tried to persuade the Florida Supreme Court to reconsider Chavez’s argument that the sedative used as part of the cocktail of lethal drugs was ineffective as a pain-relieving anesthetic and therefore violated his constitutional protection against 'cruel and unusual punishment.'” What about Jimmy Ryce's constitutional protection? Another exerpt that is tough to read, but apparently true: "Chavez told Miami-Dade homicide investigators that he grabbed Jimmy at gunpoint as he exited the school bus, put him in his pickup truck and took him to his trailer, where he raped him, according to the confession. When Jimmy tried to escape from his camper, Chavez shot him in the back, decapitated him, and dismembered his body, hiding the parts in concrete in three plastic planters buried in an avocado grove on the Scheinhaus’ horse farm."

Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000), is the United States Supreme Court decision that effectively resolved the dispute surrounding the 2000 presidential election. Three days earlier, the Court had preliminarily halted a recount that was occurring. Eight days earlier, the Court unanimously decided the closely related case of Bush v. Palm Beach County Canvassing Board, 531 U.S. 70 (2000). In a per curiam decision, the Court, by a 5-4 vote,[1][2] ruled that no alternative method could be established within the time limit set by Title 3 of the United States Code (3 U.S.C.), § 5 ("Determination of controversy as to appointment of electors"), which was December 12. However, seven of the justices agreed that there was an Equal Protection Clause violation in using different standards of counting in different counties.[3] Three concurring justices also asserted that the Florida Supreme Court had violated Article II, § 1, cl. 2 of the Constitution, by misinterpreting Florida election law that had been enacted by the ...
The Florida election recount of 2000 was a period of vote re-counting that occurred following the unclear results of the 2000 United States presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore, specifically the Florida results. The Florida vote was ultimately settled in favor of George W. Bush, by a margin of only 537 votes out of almost 6 million cast, when the U.S. Supreme Court, with its final ruling on Bush v. Gore, stopped a recount that had been proposed by the all-Democrat Florida Supreme Court. The outcome resulted in Bush gaining a majority of votes in the Electoral College, winning the overall presidential election.[1]

SENATOR CLEMENS FILES LEGISLATION TO LEGALIZE MEDICAL MARIJUANA TALLAHASSEE, FL --- Senator Jeff Clemens (D-Lake Worth) maintains his leadership in improving the lives of Floridians with chronic and debilitating disorders by allowing for access to cannabis as an alternative treatment option. SB 962, named The Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, creates a well-regulated and controlled program that meets the needs of Floridians with chronic health conditions and disabilities that use or can benefit from the use of marijuana for medical treatment without further suffering from our state’s antiquated drug laws. The new program contains protections to ensure public safety while also saving taxpayer dollars. "This is the fourth time that we’ve tried to seek relief for patients through the legislative process," Clemens said. “I think 2014 is going to be a momentous year for those who are suffering.” Beginning with the Legislative Session of 2011, Clemens has filed medical cannabis legislation every year . ...
.hm.82% support!!!. Floridians will have a chance to vote on legalizing medical marijuana, the state’s Supreme Court ruled Jan. 27., setting up a major battle in the populous southern state, and some searing commentary from legendary author Carl Hiaasen. A Quinnipiac University Polling Institute survey in late 2013 showed 82 percent of the public supported medical marijuana, which is great because unlike California, Colorado, or Washington, a constitutional amendment in Florida requires 60 percent voter approval for adoption. Naturally, elected Florida leaders are deeply opposed, including Florida’s entire Republican Party all the way up to Gov. Rick Scott. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and the state’s Republican leadership even sued to block a vote on medical marijuana, but the Florida Supreme Court narrowly ruled 4-3 to allow the vote to go forward. Reuters reports Charlie Crist, a former Republican governor of Florida who is running for Governor as a Democrat versus Scott in November celebra ...
For those of you who do not know, the Florida Bar is a bureaucracy of the State Government, and it works for the Florida Supreme Court.
