Several letters to the editor in the News requested that the section be reinserted in the 2005 directory. The Martin County Bar Association passed a resolution supporting the reinstatement of the judges’ section.In light of the membership outcry to restore the court section, the Communications Committee and the Board of Governors voted in April to include the court section in the 2005 directory at an approximate cost of $9,200 to the Bar. While the committee’s ultimate decision was to reinstate the judges’ section, it was also decided that the section would be made available on the Web in the same format as the print version.The court section of the 2005 Journal directory is available online now at floridabar.org along with links to court Web sites. The printed version of the directory will be available in September.last_img read more
