Governor DeSantis Appoints Robert Luck to
Florida Supreme Court
Early Monday morning, Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Judge Robert Luck to the Supreme Court of Florida. Justice Luck is a Miami-Dade native, and he attended the University of Florida where he received both his juris doctor and his bachelor’s degree in economics.
Justice Luck previously served on the bench of the Third District Court of Appeal after being appointed by Governor Rick Scott in March 2017. Before the bench, he worked as a federal prosecutor assigned to the Appeals, Major Crimes, and Economic Crimes Sections of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Also, early in his career he served as a legislative correspondent for two U.S. senators.
In his application to the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission, Justice Luck said:
“Having worked in each of the three branches, I understand the modest role of the judge in reviewing the laws enacted by the legislature, the actions taken by the executive, and the findings of the lower courts,” Justice Luck said. “I have conducted myself that way for the last five years, and I will continue to do so as long as I am permitted to serve.”
This is Governor DeSantis’ second of three picks for the Supreme Court of Florida. Last week, Governor DeSantis appointed Justice Barbara Lagoa.
The Florida Chamber of Commerce proudly welcomes Justice Luck to the bench. Stay tuned for more updates from the DeSantis administration.
