Law school dean says Florida judge should run for legislature

Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, says the Miami judge who ruled against Florida’s ban on homosexual adoption should run for the legislature if she wants to practice activism.

Staver takes issue with Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Cindy Lederman’s ruling allowing Martin Gill, a 47-year-old homosexual, to adopt two young brothers who have been his foster children.

“In the short-term, this judge’s ruling is merely a tempest in a teapot, but in the long-term, it means nothing,” Staver contends. “The courts will clearly overturn this judge’s ruling on appeal. This law has previously been challenged and upheld by both the state and federal appeals courts.”

Seeing Red AZ recently covered this subverting of the will of the people by Judge Lederman.

Dean Staver calls Lederman an activist judge and notes that he and others are getting fed up with her type.

Florida state attorneys plan to appeal the ruling, which will ultimately decide what happens to the ban, in existence since 1977.

    Dean Staver is right on the money with this suggestion. Judges legislating from the bench is a major problem in America today. Their intent, of course, is to diminish the will of the people.

    We need more people of legal stature calling these offending judges out. Good for the law school dean for stepping up and taking on this difficult task.
