Notice to the public
The Code of Judicial Conduct governing behavior by judges forbids judges from discussing pending cases with the public or parties to cases. Please do not call the Court expecting to speak with a judge about any case. The Court is only allowed to consider evidence and arguments made in the courtroom and in documents properly filed by actual parties in the case as authorized by law and the Rules of Court. The Court cannot ethically read or consider any other evidence or arguments about the case. Ex parte communications also applies to the General Magistrate & Hearing Officers.
Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact the Court by phone or in writing.
