Gov. Ron DeSantis must show cause why the Supreme Court should not order him to select another qualified finalist to replace 15th Circuit Judge Renatha Francis to fill a vacancy on the state’s top court.

The action came September 8 as the court granted Rep. Geraldine Thompson’s motion to amend her original petition challenging Francis’s appointment to the court.

Just before the court’s order, a Fernandina Beach resident filed a separate action asking the court to order DeSantis to make another choice.
