4/11/2011; Tallahassee, Fla. – Governor Rick Scott today announced the appointment of Judge Lisa S. Walsh of Miami Beach to the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court.

“In the County Court, Judge Walsh has brought a common-sense approach to every issue and dispute that has come before her,” Governor Scott said. “She also has applied the rule of law in a consistent, fair and intelligent manner. I am confident she will remain a principled jurist on the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court.”
