An alert reader asked a question which we will paraphrase:
Assume two candidates are vying for a seat on the bench.
Both candidates apply for multiple open seats and the governor appoints both of them.
What happens to the election? Does the seat open up for special qualifying and a special election, or does the governor get to make an appointment to that seat as well?
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Just look at our president.
E FILING JUST GOT EASIER
When e-filing a document through the State of Florida portal you no longer need to list how many pages the document is. This makes life easier.
Of course you still can't go on there and obtain copies of documents previously filed in PDF format. But then, that's asking a lot- asking the State to provide the same services as every other e-filing entity. This is Florida after all.
