Governor Scott Appoints Judge Ross L. Bilbrey to the First Judicial Circuit Court
Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced the appointment of Judge Ross L. Bilbrey, of Pace, to the First Judicial Circuit Court.
Judge Bilbrey, 43, has served on the Santa Rosa County Court since 2006. Previously, he was managing partner with the Bilbrey Law Firm from 2003 to 2006 and practiced with Brant, Moore, Macdonald and Wells P.A. from 1997 to 2000. From 2000 to 2003, he was a civilian attorney with the Naval Legal Service Office of the Judge Advocate General Corps. Judge Bilbrey received bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Florida.
“Judge Bilbrey brings a wealth of experience with him to the circuit bench,” Governor Scott said. “He is committed to the fundamental principle that judges apply, and do not make, the law.”
Judge Bilbrey will fill the vacancy created by resignation of Judge Paul Rasmussen.
