Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced the appointment of Daliah Weiss, of Wellington, to the Palm Beach County Court.
Weiss, 41, has been an assistant state attorney with the State Attorney’s Office in Palm Beach since 1996. Currently, Weiss is chief of the county court and family violence units within the office. Prior to that, she was chief of the special victims unit. Weiss received a bachelor’s degree from Emory University and a law degree from Villanova University School of Law.
“During Daliah’s 17 years as a prosecutor, she has gained extensive trial experience in some of the most difficult cases,” Governor Scott said. “Daliah has also demonstrated leadership skills as the chief of multiple units, and I am confident she will be a great addition to the bench in Palm Beach County.”
Weiss will fill the vacancy created by the appointment of Judge Gregory Keyser to the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit.
