Chief judge-clerk rule tabled for now

first_img December 1, 2004 Senior Editor Regular News Chief judge-clerk rule tabled for now Gary Blankenship Senior Editor A controversial procedural rules amendment on the relationship between chief circuit judges and court clerks has been tabled until next summer.The Rules of Judicial Administration Committee, at its October 28 meeting, voted to reconsider its earlier suggested change to Rule of Judicial Administration 2.050. It then decided to table the matter until July 1, after the Florida Legislature meets next spring and has a chance to address the matter.“We’re going to back off and show respect for the process,” said committee Chair and 13th Circuit Judge Claudia Isom.At issue is the autonomy of clerks and the authority of the legislature to regulate what clerks do. The committee’s proposed amendment would have clerks report to chief circuit judges when it comes to their functions that support court operations. That is different from language approved by the legislature when it drew up laws to implement Revision 7, the constitutional amendment that required the state to take over more funding of the trial courts.The proposed rule had raised reservations among legislators involved in Revision 7, as well as the Bar Board of Governors. Lawmakers said appropriations for clerks is a legislative prerogative, but the proposed rule would appear to give circuit judges some of that authority by allowing them to define clerks’ duties.“Appropriations is a legislative function, not a judicial function,” said Rep. Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples, one of six lawmakers who sent a letter to the Bar about the proposed rule amendment. “A lot of what is being proposed for the chief judges in the circuit to do would have some potential funding ramifications. We think that’s a legislative function and it’s not appropriate to blur those lines.”The legislature is also ready to look at any problems arising in clerks support of the courts in glitch legislation, Goodlette said. He also sent to the Bar and committee a legislative staff analysis making a constitutional separation of powers argument on why the committee’s suggested rule change was wrong.The possibility of legislative action was also raised by Bar President Kelly Overstreet Johnson when she wrote to the committee passing along the Board of Governors’ suggested changes, adopted at its August meeting, to the committee’s proposed amendment.“The Florida Bar believes that those conscientious Florida legislators charged with continued implementation of Revision 7 will readily understand these new concerns, will appreciate their impact on an open court system, and will deal with them responsibly in the coming session,” she wrote.going to the legislature, Johnson said, “the BoG opted for a course of action that next places this issue in a different governmental arena, still allowing for continued discussion of this topic among those legislators, clerks, and judges involved with ongoing Revision 7 matters during the 2005 Legislative Session.”The Rules of Judicial Administration Committee proposed including this sentence in Rule 2.050(3): “The clerk of court shall discharge its constitutional and statutory duties at the direction of and in consultation with the chief judge to effectively and efficiently accomplish the administrative plan.”Subsection (9) would add this sentence: “The clerks of court shall be subject to the direction of the chief judge for the efficient and proper administration of all courts within the circuit. The clerk of court shall perform all responsibilities required by law and provide such other services for the efficient and proper administration of the court as may be required by administrative order or local rule.”The board’s proposed modifications would alter both sections to say the chief judge would have “administrative supervision” rather than “direction” over the clerks. The last sentence of subsection (9) would be shortened to “The clerk of court shall perform all responsibilities required by law.”Officials from the Supreme Court’s Trial Court Budget Commission, which approved in negotiations the law passed by the legislature, also said the proposed amendment would undermine their ability to work with the legislature on trial court financial matters.Isom said she will have to write the Supreme Court, which had asked the Rules of Judicial Administration Committee to look at the clerk issue, and ask for a delay.A subcommittee also studied the issue and concluded under case law clerks in their court supporting functions are part of the judicial branch, and not the executive or legislative, she said. Isom added, though, that the committee is aware of the opinion prepared by House staff for Rep. Goodlette, and that his assurance the legislature would look into the committee’s concerns had a lot to do with the panel deciding to table the rule for now.Under policies for procedural rules, the Bar cannot change a rule committee’s proposed amendments, but can endorse them or recommend changes to the Supreme Court or advise the amendments be rejected. Johnson, at the board’s October meeting, noted the board’s actions from August were sent to the Rules of Judicial Administration Committee in hopes it would change its amendments before forwarding them to the Supreme Court.“We are not suggesting there is not an issue or a problem there. What we are saying is at this time we do not need to do this [rule amendment],” she told board members, urging them to contact committee members. “If it’s still a problem in a year, we can revisit it.. . . A lot of us are very concerned about the impact this would have in the legislature next year. A lot of our friends in the legislature are warning us.”At the August meeting, board members said they understood committee members’ arguments that the issue was about separation of powers. But in this case, they agreed with the legislature and clerks were correct in that the clerks, as constitutional officers, do not fall directly under the control of the courts.

Men’s soccer: Badgers fall short in thrilling overtime against No. 1 Terrapins

first_imgIn what will be remembered as one of the best Big Ten games in recent memory, the battle of first and second place teams needed extra time to decide a winner.University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team lost an overtime thriller to the No. 1 University of Maryland Terrapins 3-2 in College Park Friday night. Though the loss was the first for the Badgers in three weeks, it proved their ability to compete with the best in the country.The Terrapins (11-0-2, 6-0-1) scored first off of an Amar Sejdic free kick that bent into the Badger goal box to senior Terrapin captain Alex Crognale, who headed in his third goal of the season.Down 1-0 at halftime, the Badgers (7-3-2, 3-2-1 Big Ten) charged back in the second half. With goals from sophomore Sam Brotherton and junior Mark Segbers within three minutes of each other, Wisconsin took the lead and the momentum from the Terrapins.The Badger’s equalizer came from Brotherton off of a free kick assist from Christopher Mueller and broke the Terrapin’s five game shutout streak. It was the third goal of the sophomore captain’s season despite being a defenseman.Mueller followed that up not long after when he fired a pass past the Terrapins’ goal box, and Segbers finished it off. This was also Segbers’ third goal of the season and gave the Badgers the lead, one they would hold until two minutes left in the game.With time running down and their first loss on the season looming, the Terrapins led a ferocious attack that resulted in a corner kick and a header goal that tied the game and sent it into overtime.In the extra period, both teams went back and forth until under three minutes to go when Maryland’s Eryk Williamson showed off a great feat of soccer skill and beat Wisconsin keeper Phillip Schilling with a shot to the lower left corner that won the game and extinguished the Badger’s upset hopes.Despite giving up three goals, the Badger’s defense was stellar and proved their backline is one of the best in the Big Ten and the nation. Schilling recorded eight saves to an already standout season.Men’s Soccer: Badgers to be tested at College Station Friday against No. 1 TerrapinsAfter a dominant win by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Men’s soccer team against in-state rival University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on Read…At the end of the game, both team’s play proved two things: Maryland is one of the best soccer programs in the nation, and Wisconsin is headed in that direction.There was doubt whether UW could compete at the next level, but they responded as they have all season and put forth an outstanding performance in one of the toughest environments in all of college soccer.The Badgers take a breather from conference play as they return home this week for a matchup against instate rival UW-Milwaukee Tuesday. The game kicks off at the McClimon Soccer Complex against 7 p.m.last_img read more
