UWWM's Robert Cole, past president of the Florida Board of Trial Advocates, told the Daily Business Review the public wants Florida's judiciary to remain independent of political influence.
First the state legislature tried, and failed, to gain more control over the makeup of Florida's Supreme Court, and now a bill introduced Wednesday would, if passed, cede more power over the process to the governor. Mr. Cole was quoted by the publication on Friday.
