Appellate Panel Created for County Criminal Cases
APPELLATE PANEL CREATED FOR COUNTY CRIMINAL CASES
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Two years after creating a three-judge panel process for county civil appeals, the 17th Judicial Circuit has adopted a similar appeals process for county criminal cases in Broward. Beginning July 1, 2015, all pending county criminal appeals and civil traffic infraction appeals will be transferred to the newly established circuit criminal division AC, as outlined in Administrative Order 2015-18-Gen. "Three judge panels provide a more efficient and timely disposition to pending appeals; assure more streamlined and consistent decisions; and bring the 17th Judicial Circuit in line with every other circuit in this state,” says Chief Judge Peter M. Weinstein.
Judges presiding on the criminal appellate panel will be chosen by Circuit Criminal Administrative Judge Martin Bidwill, on a six-month rotation schedule. The initial judges to preside are the Honorable Lisa Porter, the Honorable Jeffrey Levenson, and the Honorable Raag Singhal.
