You Still Have Ten Days to Vote for Our Federal Public Defender!


Well, not vote per se, but you can comment on Mike Caruso's job performance as part of the reappointment process:
In accordance with regulations of the Judicial Conference of the United States and the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit governing the appointment and reappointment of Federal Public Defenders, a review committee has been established to evaluate Mr. Caruso’s performance in consideration of his request to be reappointed to a new four-year term. The Committee is soliciting written comments from members of the bar and concerned citizens about the performance of Mr. Caruso and his office staff. If requested, the identity of a respondent to this solicitation will not be divulged without prior consent. However, Mr. Caruso will be provided with a general description of the source and nature of any comments. Comments should be submitted to James P. Gerstenlauer, Circuit Executive, United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, 56 Forsyth Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30303, and must be received in the Circuit Executive=s Office no later than 30 November 2015.
Ok, so the identity of a particular respondent will not be divulged, but Mike will "be provided with a general description of the source and nature of any comments."

Come on -- he's gonna know!

But that's fine, he's done a good job and deserves reappointment.

Note to review committee -- please be sure to provide Mike with a general description of the source and nature of my comments!

  4. He's done a "good" job? Shouldn't the court be shooting for something better?
