For the first time in recent memory, a father and a daughter will serve on the Broward Circuit Court.
Gov. Rick Scott has chosen County Judge Stacy Ross for a circuit court opening.
She joins her father Circuit Judge Dale Ross. Dale Ross is the former chief judge of Broward.
“Judge Ross has consistently demonstrated a keen understanding of the law…Her legal knowledge will continue to be a great asset to Broward County,” Scott was quoted in a news release.
Stacy Ross has been a county judge since 2005. She was previously a prosecutor.
A graduate of Nova Law School — the previous name of the school — she replaces Susan Aramony, who died in office.
