The Florida Supreme Court entered an order of public reprimand against a former Miami state court judge who failed to abide by the law when he wore his military uniform in campaign materials and failed to provide appropriate disclaimers in those reelection campaign materials.
Scott Fingerhut, a judicial ethics expert at Florida International University College of Law, is not involved in the disciplinary action against former Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mark Blumstein. But after evaluating the entire case, Fingerhut said in an email, “We must remind ourselves in America over and again, justice cannot be for one side alone.”
