Attorney General Moody’s Statement on the Selection of Justice Robert Luck

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.”
