As a sixth-generation Floridian, I am an admitted Florida history buff. I love reading about the history of the people (mostly through genealogy), geography and locations, and the justice system. Florida is truly a unique state.
Take a look at this Florida Supreme Court brochure, “The Evolution of Justice in Florida.” It only takes a minute to read, and gives a glimpse of the growth and milestones of the FSSC. There is a lot more about the history of Florida law as well as the history of the court at the Florida Supreme Court website.
If you like that, and want a peek at a darker, seedier side of the Court, pick up a copy of “A Most Disorderly Court.” That’s all I’ll say about that!
