The chief justice of the Florida Supreme Court has sent a letter to the state’s 20 chief judges, telling them to make sure they are not improperly closing judicial proceedings to the public. Chief Justice Charles Canady’s letter comes in response to a letter he received Friday from the Florida Press Association’s general counsel and other organizations, alleging numerous instances in which judges have barred the public from attending foreclosure proceedings. On Monday, Canady issued a statement, saying he was “deeply concerned” about the allegations.
