Ok, so we're supposed to just blithely accept the fact that there are two people in Broward both named Zachariah Zachariah?
We've already covered the Broward doctor Zachariah Zachariah here.
And then there's this guy:
Maybe they are related?Governor Rick Scott has appointed two Fort Lauderdale attorneys to the Seventeenth Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission.
The commission reviews applications and recommends candidates for appointment to the bench on the circuit court that covers Broward County. Circuit judges are typically elected, but when vacancies arise due to death, retirement or resignation, it's the governor's job to fill the vacancy. The nominating commission sends the governor three to six names to consider.
The governor has the option of choosing from the recommended candidates or asking for additional recommendations.
The new appointees to the commission are William McCormick, of the Gray Robinson law firm, and Zachariah "Reggie" Zachariah, of the Greenberg Traurig firm. Both firms are headquartered in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Either way congrats to Reggie, a 2009 grad who is quickly moving up in the world.
And now we dance:
