1st DCA to hold court in Apalachicola Wednesday afternoon

Franklin County court watchers will get a rare glimpse into the highest echelon of jurisprudence in the state Wednesday afternoon at the county courthouse.

That’s because four of the judges who sit on the state’s 1st District Court of Appeals will hold court beginning at 2 p.m. in the circuit court chambers on the third floor.

The judges likely will not hear cases particular to Franklin County, but instead ones on appeal from throughout the sprawling North Florida DCA, the largest one by geography in the state.

“They have done this in a couple of other counties, to get out and into the public eye,” said County Judge Gordon Shuler.

Shuler, who has argued six times over his career at the 1st DCA, said Judge Bobby Long will be among the judges who will be on the bench Wednesday afternoon.

The public is invited to attend.
