So, how about some happiness for your blog pleasure this week...
Judge Scola is celebrating five years on the federal district court bench. To honor the occasion, the Judge and his wife, Judge Jacki Hogan Scola, gathered with over a dozen of his former and current law clerks and staff during the weekend of October 29-30. That Saturday evening, his law clerks held a dinner in his honor at a former clerk's home in Coconut Grove, and on Sunday the Judge hosted a lunch for everyone in Coral Gables.
In 2011, President Obama nominated Judge Scola to fill the seat on the Southern District of Florida made available when Judge Paul C. Huck took senior status. Judge Scola had previously served for over a decade on the state court bench. He was confirmed as a federal district judge on October 19, 2011 and received his commission the following day.
Happy fifth anniversary, Judge Scola! Let's hope President Trump gives us more like him!
Here are some pictures from the event. Check out this cake!
