circuit judges are elected in fl. It is a local election.
These judges just have to love the power they’ve been given to usurp the will of the people like this over and over again.

seems ez peezee....
Now a measley circuit court judge is overriding legislation. What’s next? A crossing guard striking down the Constitution?

It’s disgusting on any day.
