Administrative Order OASC16-83 IN RE: EMERGENCY REQUEST TO EXTEND TIME PERIODS UNDER ALL FLORIDA RULES OF PROCEDURE FOR THE THIRD DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL.
Judge Vance E. Salter

Judge Vance E. Salter of the Florida Third District Court of Appeal has been selected by the Dade County Bar Association (DCBA) as the recipient of the Justice Joseph Story Award.

The DCBA “Over the Rainbow” Award ceremony is an annual event and was first held in 2014. The Justice Joseph Story Award was also created in 2014 and Judge Salter will be the third recipient. Prior recipients were Hilarie Bass, Esq. and Stephen F. Rossman, Esq.

Justice Story’s contributions to the Supreme Court continue to affect us today – some 200 years after he was first appointed to the High Court. Justice Story’s penchant for protecting the rights of property owners helped shape early American jurisprudence in a tailored direction to encourage ownership in the celebrated decisions that all of us remember fondly from First Year Property Class, including Martin v. Hunter’s Lessee and The Amistad case. A prolific author, scholar, chaired Professor for Law School, Justice Story fought to ensure that the U.S. Constitution be protected for what he called suiting the purposes of the people, in framing this great character of our liberties, and to provide for minute specifications of its power.

Historians agree that Justice Joseph Story reshaped American law in a conservative direction that protected property rights.

The Third District Court of Appeal congratulates Judge Salter on this prestigious honor.
