Briefs

first_img June 1, 2006 Regular News Briefs BriefsTHE OCCASION WAS AN AWARDS luncheon in Tallahassee to show appreciation for employees and board members of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. Florida Supreme Court Justice Fred Lewis was among the well-wishers: “I say this from the bottom of my heart and from all the justices at the court: How many ways can we say we love you? Because your function is so vitally important.. . . The discussions at our court are in pure admiration for not only all of you as staff, but those members of the board who volunteer so many hours to come from wherever they may come from in Florida to fulfill the objectives of your work. Believe me, although it may become tedious, as you go through these reports, as you look at these wiggly lines on what all these test results mean, there is a child in Florida that’s impacted by what you do. So it’s not a thankless job at all. We are very thankful for all of you.” The Brandi Cawthon Alvarado Award was presented to Joseph Figo.
