FIRST HISPANIC JUSTICE RESIGNS FROM STATE SUPREME COURT

From the St. Petersburg Times: Raoul G. Cantero III, Florida’s first Hispanic Supreme Court justice, announced his resignation Friday [April 11], giving Gov. Charlie Crist the first of three appointments that will allow him to reshape the Florida Supreme Court. One of the high court’s two most conservative judges, Cantero, 47, cited personal reasons for stepping down effective Sept. 6, six years after joining the court. Cantero has told friends that his family, including his wife, Ani, and three children, are homesick and want to return to Miami. He told the St. Petersburg Times that his 13-year-old daughter recently had a benign tumor removed. Cantero said he and his wife started to discuss his resignation a few weeks ago, and he chose this week because the court had a light oral argument schedule. http://www.tampabay.com,
