Daniel Nordby, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Tallahassee office, was recently quoted in Historical Review Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2021 edition, discussing the appointment of the newest Florida Supreme Court Justice and the fifth female Justice to serve on the Court, Jamie R. Grosshans.
Daniel, who currently serves as a gubernatorial appointee to the Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission, was also involved with the vetting process leading to the prior appointments of Justice Grosshans to the county and district courts. In Historical Review Magazine’s article, “Meet the Newest Supreme Court Justice: Jamie R. Grosshans,” Daniel comments on her past appointments and her future in the judiciary.
“During her time on the Orange County Court and Fifth DCA, Justice Grosshans developed a reputation as a fair and principled jurist,” said Daniel. “I am confident that she will bring those same qualities to her new role. I look forward to her service on the Florida Supreme Court for decades to come.”
