Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy A. Quince, coming off a “rough” Legislative Session in Tallahassee, recently visited the Downtown Orlando Public library, to talk with area residents, lawyers and law students about changes and pending changes to state’s judicial system. One change will split the Florida Supreme Court into two: one for civil cases and one for criminal cases. She tackled a lot of good questions too, including one on why people  stay on the state’s death row so long. Justice Quince has served on the state Supreme Court since 1999. She is the first and only African-American female to serve on the state’s highest court. Her visit to the Orlando library was sponsored by the Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers.
