Rick Scott’s rejections cause the Florida Bar to form a panel on diversity

From the Tampa Bay Times, 02/26/2014:

Bar President Eugene Pettis on Wednesday announced creation of the task force, formally called the President’s Task Force to Study the Enhancement of Diversity on the Bench. It follows a Times/Herald report on Gov. Rick Scott’s practice of repeatedly rejecting lists of lawyers nominated by the Bar for JNC positions. Scott has not given a reason for the rejections and is not required to do so.
