FLORIDA JUDICIAL POLITICS GETS EVEN WEIRDER
Abramson stripped of law license; vows to serve as judge
Supreme Court Order
"Incoming Palm Beach County Circuit Court Judge William Abramson has been stripped of his license to practice law for 91 days...
Attorneys with the Florida Bar, who pursued disciplinary action against Abramson, weren't immediately available for coment. But they have said that the ramifications of a suspension are unknown. There has never been a case where an incoming judge has lost his license, they said.
Florida statutes only require that a circuit judge be a member of the bar for five years.
"I'm still a member of the bar," Abramson said.
The question could be resolved when the high court issues it's full opinion. In its order today, the justices said they would issue a full opinion at an unspecified future time."
