MONROE COUNTY, FL – The Judicial Circuit Assessment Committee approved today a motion to recommend no consolidation of the judicial circuits. The vote was 20 to zero. The recommendation will be forwarded to the Florida Supreme Court for further consideration.
“This is great news for Monroe County as this takes us one step closer to making sure Monroe County and Miami-Dade’s circuit courts are not combined, which could have determinantal consequences for our local legal system,” said Monroe County Attorney Bob Shillinger. “I would like to thank the stakeholders and the community members who came together in one voice to express opposition to this proposal.”
