THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:
Breaking News, as reported by Herald Reporter David Ovalle.
JUDGE MARTIN ZILBER HAS RESIGNED.
The resignation is effective as of May 14, 2021 at 5:00 PM. With last month's resignation of Judge Miguel "Mike" Mirabal that now leaves two open seats
on the Circuit Court bench one in circuit court and one in county court. Time for the JNC to get to work.
Expect our Governor to end up choosing judges whose resumes includes the initials ASA, AUSA, or AAG. To date, 78 of the 121 judges chosen by DeSantis (a staggering 64%) did in fact have those initials in their backgrounds. Compare that with only 5 that were former APD or AFPD (only two of which were in the public defender's office when chosen).
Contrast that to the recently released list of nominees from the Biden administration for federal court judges. More than half have worked as a public defender during their careers.
