From the Associated Press, 10/15/2018:
Florida’s next governor and not Gov. Rick Scott will get to pick three new justices to the state Supreme Court.
In a major rebuke to Scott, the Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the Republican governor exceeded his authority when he started the process to find replacements for the three justices.
… In a one-page ruling, the court said that whoever is elected in November has the “sole authority” to name the new justices.
