Senior Judges

Return to Programs & Services

In Florida, retired judges may seek certification from the Florida Supreme Court to remain active on the bench, and use their considerable experience and expertise serving as senior judges. The Tenth Judicial Circuit uses senior judges to fill in for absent judges, to alleviate case backlogs, and to preside over lengthy and complex trials. As senior judges, retired judges are vested with the requisite powers to complete their temporary judicial assignments.
