JUSTICE IN DA HOUSE
(PD cursing update below)
We have it on good authority that Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy Quince will in the humble REGJB tomorrow (Friday) addressing a gathering of criminal defense attorneys sponsored by....we think....(can this be possible?) The Regional Counsel's Office???!!
It's some sort of CLE shingding that will be in the big courtroom on the 4th floor.
We also hear Chief Judge Joel Brown will be in attendance. Yipee!!! (Judge Brown, click here for Google Directions to the Criminal Court House.-Update- a reader says this was cheap shot. See our response in the comments section. )
We know she will be in the house....just not sure why. Anyone with more info, please write in.
Fun Justice Quince facts: She was a joint appointment by outgoing Governor "Walkin" Lawton Chiles and in coming Governor Jeb Bush.
She is the only Justice ever to serve on the Florida Supreme Court who has a degree in Zoology.
When Governor Chiles appointed her to the 2nd DCA, she was the first African-American Woman to be appointed to a Florida District Court of Appeal.
And now Justice Quince receives the great distinction and high honour of being the first member of the Florida Supreme Court to address the Regional Counsel's Office, 3rd Region of Miami and parts of Hialeah.
See You In Court, but we already have all the CLE we need.
BREAKING BLOGS NEWS:

The PDs are allowed to curse again. Whew...
According to our source, it was all a big f'ing misunderstanding.
