TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Ashley Moody today released the following statement on Governor Ron DeSantis’ selection of Justice Robert J. Luck for the Florida Supreme Court:
“I applaud Governor DeSantis’ appointment of Judge Robert Luck to the Florida Supreme Court. Judge Luck has distinguished himself in his service as a federal prosecutor, circuit court judge, and a judge on the Third District Court of Appeal. He will be a great addition to the Florida Supreme Court.
“As a former judge and prosecutor, it is important that we have well-qualified justices who are committed to the rule of law. Personally, I am excited about Justice Luck’s appointment. We served as circuit judges at the same time and we taught judges together constitutional principles and fundamental rights against unlawful governmental intrusions. I know he will be a vigilant guardian of freedom and separation of powers. My office looks forward to appearing in front of the full Florida Supreme Court, including Justice Luck.”
