FL Governor Appoints Duval County Judge and Jacksonville Lawyer

Last Thursday, the governor of Florida “announced the appointment of County Judge Russell L. Healey and Marianne Lloyd Aho to the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court.”  Judge Healey “fills a vacancy created by the passing of Judge Jean Johnson.”  He has been a judge in Duval County Florida for twelve years.  He has been a county court judge since 2002.  Lately, Judge Healey has been filling in as a circuit court judge presiding over felony cases.  He has been presiding over the Michael Dunn murder trial for the murder of Jordan Davis. Before becoming a judge in county court in Duval County, Healey was a family and criminal lawyer Jacksonville.  He “began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in the Fourth Judicial Circuit from 1981-1984. Healey received his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida and his law degree from the University of Florida.”

Governor Rick Scott spoke about his decision to appoint Judge Healey to the circuit court bench.  He stated, “During his twelve years on the Duval County Court bench, Judge Healey has been a consistent advocate for the rule of law and for Florida families. I am confident that he will make a great addition to the Fourth Judicial Circuit bench.”

Governor Scott also appointed a Jacksonville attorney to the bench. He appointed Marianne Lloyd Aho.  “She fills a vacancy created by the appointment of Judge Brian J. Davis to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.”  She also has built her legal career in Jacksonville FL.  She “has been a shareholder with Marks Gray, P.A. since 2008.”  Aho “has maintained a commercial litigation practice at Jacksonville firms since beginning her legal career in 1991.”  She “received her bachelor’s degree from Rice University and her law degree from Florida State University.”

Governor Rick Scott praised Aho.  He stated, “Marianne is an accomplished lawyer with an excellent reputation in Jacksonville’s legal community. I am very confident that her knowledge of the law will be a great attribute in her new service on the Fourth Circuit Court bench.” (Florida Governor)
