Hawkins wins board seat.
Daniel Morman informed the Bar he had stopped practicing in Palm Beach County and, since he lives in Miami-Dade County, he no longer qualifies to seek the open 15th Circuit seat on the board.
His withdrawal means that Scott G. Hawkins has been elected without opposition to replace retiring board member Michael Kranz in Seat 3 of the 15th Circuit.
That still leaves 22 candidates running for six contested seats in other circuits, including 10 candidates running for one seat in the 11th Circuit. There is also one other contested race for an 11th Circuit seat. Other races are in the First, Sixth, 17th, and 18th circuits.
There are also four candidates running for two seats on the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors. Kevin M. Kohl has dropped out of the 10th Circuit, Seat One. race, leaving Sara L. Reyes and Victor R. Smith still on the ballot. The other race is in the Fourth Circuit.
Ballots will be mailed by March 1 by the Bar's elections company, Elections Services Corporation (ESC). Bar members will have the option of voting by paper ballot or online at ESC's Web site, electionservicescorp.com. All ballots must be cast or received no later than midnight March 22.
