Leon County (Tallahasse) Circuit Court Judge James Lee Marsh was appointed by Governor Richard Lynn Scott in 2018. Three cheers for judicial indeoepdnence. Kudos to Judge Marsh for his decision against Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS and his racist gerrymander. Our ethically-challenged Governor got our spineless legislature to go along with the gag, knowing it was unconstitutional under Supreme Court precedent. Cocky Boy Governor DeSANTIS should hang his head in shame.
A Harvard Law School graduate, DeSANTIS and his GQP wrecking crew have constantly been struck down by federal and state courts.
Like DeSANTIS, Judge Marsh is a former Navy lawyer. Judge Marsh graduated from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis in 1996, and earned a law degree at the University of Florida in 2004. He worked on prison litigation for the Florida State Attorney General when Governor Scott appointed him to the bench in 2018.
