Overview

On Jan. 16, 2009 leaders from The Florida Bar, judiciary and business met in Miami to examine what can be done to assure that Florida's courts receive the funding they need to carry out their constitutionally mandated work. Summit-goers heard a presentation about the economic fallout of more than two years of budget cuts that have taken more than 10 percent from court budgets, eliminating many support staffers at a time when filings are increasing, including a record numbers of foreclosures. The summit - held in conjunction with The Florida Bar's Midyear Meeting - was cosponsored by The Florida Bar and the Young Lawyers Division.
