The Indian River County Bar Association welcomed Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles T. Canady as guest speaker at its September 17 monthly meeting.

Canady, who appeared virtually with about four dozen IRCBA members also on the Zoom call, marked this year’s Constitution Day with a discussion about America and the constitutional underpinnings that guide the law and those who interpret it.

Canady also answered questions and spoke about the pandemic and how it has affected court proceedings, and even delved into whether he sees virtual hearings as a permanent part of the justice system.

Chief Justice Canady was appointed to the bench in 2008 and is serving his third term as chief judge. Before taking the bench, he served three terms as a state representative and then four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
