BREAKING BLOG NEWS:
Several alert readers have emailed us that the Florida Supreme Court (motto: Gore Should be President) has upheld the new conflict public defender's office, what we have been calling the ROC.
The order is below.
A tricky disorderly conduct case has kept us in court for the last few days so we haven't had a chance to review the order. But it seems clear that ROC n roll is here to stay.
Remember that we all still owe big thanks to the FACDL lawyers who worked on this pro bono.
See You In Court.
