Chief Justice Carlos Muniz

“Critical due process needs” for Florida trial courts and salary increases for judges are some of the Supreme Court’s biggest priorities for the upcoming legislative session, Chief Justice Carlos Muñiz told the Board of Governors.

“Our No. 1 priority legislatively is trying to get additional resources for the trial courts,” Muñiz said, adding that “critical due process needs” mostly means court interpreters, staff attorneys, case managers, and IT support.
