The Tampa Bay Times reports:
Jamie R. Grosshans, the last-minute choice of Gov. Ron DeSantis to the Florida Supreme Court, is an anti-abortion defender who has been active in a number of Christian legal groups, including a powerful national organization whose mission is to “spread the Gospel by transforming the legal system.”
Grosshans, from the Orlando suburb of Winter Garden, was named Florida’s seventh justice Monday, filling the vacancy created last year when President Trump named two of DeSantis’ previous appointees, Barbara Lagoa and Robert Luck, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
She left out some details on her application: specifically her membership in the Alliance Defending Freedom and her 2011 work with Orlando attorney John Stemberger to prevent a young woman from having an abortion.
Stemberger, you may recall, once declared that he would be willing to die to stop same-sex marriage. Hit the link for much more.
Congratulations to Judge Jamie Grosshans on her appointment to the @FlCourts. She will faithfully apply the law as it is written and will not legislate from the bench. Great pick by @GovRonDeSantis! pic.twitter.com/59RcqJxmgl

Given DeSantis’ Supreme Court pick Judge Jamie Grosshans’ strong personal views and history of opposing abortion, can she be impartial? https://t.co/iQ86dFOjKm

Jamie Grosshans was unable to answer “no” to the question on the FLSC application that asks if she’s a member of an org/club that discriminates. Grosshans also proudly represents fake clinics, pro bono.🤦♀️ https://t.co/6oxHq3SdTr
