On April 5, the Miami Herald published an editorial that erroneously attributed remarks to me regarding Republican lawmakers' views on judicial term limits. I never spoke the words in question, and in fact, they could not be further from the truth.
To be clear, The Florida Bar treats its role as a nonpartisan advocate for the judicial branch with the utmost seriousness. As president of the organization, it is both a responsibility and a privilege to collaborate with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Our 104,000 members, like all Florida citizens, rely on the Bar’s unwavering commitment to justice, not party politics.
I look forward to engaging in continued dialogue with our state’s elected officials, particularly as it pertains to issues confronting our judiciary and the preservation of our courts.
Never miss a local story.
William J. Schifino, Jr.,
president, The Florida Bar
