Governor Scott Appoints Thomas W. Logue to the Third District Court of Appeal
Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced the appointment of Thomas W. Logue, of Coral Gables, to the Third District Court of Appeal.
Since 1982, Logue, 56, has served as an attorney for Miami-Dade County. In that capacity, he has litigated hundreds of cases and appeals in both state and federal courts, including several high-profile cases for the County. He has handled cases in the areas of constitutional law, torts, contracts, taxes, civil rights, zoning, real estate valuation, copyrights, and bonds. Logue has served as counsel for the Board of County Commissioners and the Property Appraiser. He also has extensive experience drafting legislation and negotiating major contracts. Logue has been a frequent lecturer and adjunct professor of law, and he is the author of numerous articles on law and legal theory. He received a bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College and a law degree from Duke University School of Law.
“Tom brings to the bench an impressive record as a litigator and appellate attorney,” Governor Scott said. “Equally impressive is Tom’s abiding commitment to judicial restraint. His career and his scholarly writings demonstrate a deep understanding of the notion that the rule of law, and not personal preference, must prevail in our courts.”
Logue will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Juan Ramirez Jr.
