Florida Supreme Court Judges

Who is Ricky Polston?

Ricky Polston (born on November 24, 1955) is 66-year-old justice of the Supreme Court of Florida. He assumed the Supreme Court justice position in 2008 and has since been working in the judicial system. In 2022, Charles Canady, John Couriel, Jamie Grosshans and Polston.

The Florida Supreme Court’s restructuring under governor Ron DeSantis has drawn criticism. He transformed the legal system into a political tool of right extremism, according to the OrlandoSentinel, which cannot be relied upon to defend the rule of law. The only way for the public to still influence this crooked court is to refuse further sentences to its disobedient members on November 8.

Only Jorge Labarga should be elected; he is the only moderate on the court, and his principled but lone dissents in well-known cases have shown the radical activism of the majority. Charles Canady, John Couriel, Jamie Grosshans, and Polston are the four judges that are in opposition.
