Judge Criticized Ron DeSantis Appointee and Ended Up Getting Suspended for 'Insubordination'


by Colin Kalmbacher | 7:41 pm, April 6th, 2020

A subordinate judge who issued an opinion that was critical of his Gov. Ron DeSantis-appointed supervisor was sanctioned and suspended last Wednesday.

Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) John Van Laningham called out Division of Administrative Hearings Chief Judge and Director John MacIver in the footnotes of a decision. Van Laningham accused the DeSantis appointee of making improper “ex parte communications” in a case concerning a horse racing-and-betting track.

The supervising judge, MacIver, was strong-armed into office by the governor in February over the GOP-controlled Florida legislature’s surprisingly strong disapproval.

“I’ve talked to a lot of folks in the process, and there are a couple of areas where there was some concern,” said State Sen. Ed Hooper, a Republican. “I just didn’t have a level of comfort bringing that confirmation forward, because that has my name on it.”
