Chief Justice Charles Canady

When it meets January 21 in Tallahassee, the Board of Governors will hear remarks from Chief Justice Charles Canady, and, among other things, weigh a Disciplinary Procedure Committee proposal for suspending lawyers who face felony charges.

Justice Canady’s appearance comes after the chair of a Judicial Management Council workgroup recently told the board that the Supreme Court is considering major changes to Florida’s civil justice system.
