Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal celebrated its 50th anniversary on July 1, 2007. On behalf of the Court, I would like to thank all of the members of the Third District Court of Appeal 50th Anniversary Committee, especially its co-chairs, Kathleen O’Connor, Esq. and Ed Guedes, Esq. The committee worked more than two years assembling a historical collection of materials on the Court that will now be preserved for future generations.
The committee also produced a museum quality book entitled “Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal: Balancing Justice,” together with a narrative historical DVD. The public can purchase the book and video for $35.00, by contacting Kathleen O’Connor at 305-278-9596 or mailing the request and $35.00 to 7445 S.W. 147th Street, Palmetto Bay, Florida 33158.
The committee’s hard work culminated in a celebratory gala banquet attended by more than 800 persons at the Parrot Jungle on Friday evening, June 22, 2007. Photographs are available for viewing on our website.
