Evolution of Florida justice exhibit planned

first_imgEvolution of Florida justice exhibit planned Behind the tall metal doors of Florida’s Supreme Court building, the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society is opening new doors to the state’s unique history of justice.In a developing project, the historical society, the Florida Law Related Education Association, and the Arts in the Court Committee will co-sponsor a future permanent exhibit for the building, entitled “The Evolution of Justice in Florida: A Multimedia Perspective.”The exhibit, nearing the end of its research phase, intends to use art, artifacts, video, and interactive kiosks to facilitate for young and old alike a better understanding of the evolution of justice in Florida. The research gathered, which dates back to Native American conflict resolution, concentrates on the main components of the judicial system, the legal basis of the law, the court system, justices, and specific cases.As research historian for the ongoing project, Andrew Edel said the exhibit must go through three phases — research, script, and design.“The scope of the project is broad,” Edel said. “We’re just at the beginning.”Deciding that a chronological history would be appropriate to show this evolution, Edel searched more than 100 boxes of archival material, finding a rare law book from 1596, a letter signed by President John F. Kennedy, hand-written court reports from Civil War proceedings, Nuremberg trials photo notebooks, and blueprints of the old court building.Edel said the goal of the project was not only to give people a history of justice, but to include an educational element as well. “It looks like we are going to have a lot of very interesting artifacts and images, a lot of which has not been available to the public before.”According to Edel, three adjacent buildings — the Old Capitol, the New Capitol, and the Museum of Florida History — each attract between 50,000 and 68,000 visitors annually, compared to the 8,000 that visit the Supreme Court building.Edel sees this as an opportunity to bring more interest to the courts and the administration of justice, and Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead agrees.“It [Florida’s justice system] has a unique history,” said Chief Justice Anstead, who appointed the Arts in the Court Committee and has a vision for this project. “We want to be certain when they [visitors] come into this building that they know foundations are very important.“Native Americans had a legal culture,” Anstead said. “They had a system for dispute resolution. The Historical Society is working on tracing our roots that will identify not only the culture that existed in tribes, but also the way they resolved disputes.”Chief Justice Anstead reiterated the impact that this early dispute resolution has had on modern justice, and how the same methods of “restorative justice” employed back then, which hold persons directly accountable for their actions, remain effective methods today. Seeing the project start to materialize, Justice Anstead believes the court has a story to tell.“The concept came up several years ago,” said Park Trammell, executive director of the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society. “At the end of phase 1, the plan is to pursue additional funding; up until now we really haven’t had anything to show anyone.”That’s where Edward Jonas comes in. As an independently employed sculptor and artist with a background in exhibit design, Jonas, who co-chairs the history subcommittee of the Arts in the Court Committee, has begun to think of ways to give the project life.“We don’t want to turn the Supreme Court into a museum,” Jonas said. “But it would be nice to give people something to look at other than marble walls.”Jonas said the things to consider when designing an exhibit include space allotted, presentation, and when the exhibit would be open. Admitting that the project is very important for the state to undertake, Jonas said that it is also important to do things right.“It’s getting to that point where things are getting slow,” said Jonas, who also said that the opening date of the exhibit, which is estimated to be a while off, depends largely upon finding the grant money to move forward.Contributions to support the exhibit are also welcomed, and can be sent to Park Trammell, Executive Director, Florida Supreme Court Historical Society, P.O.

Yang makes stops in north-central Iowa

first_imgMASON CITY Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang says he’s enormously proud of his wife for publicly revealing in a CNN interview that she was sexually assaulted by her doctor. Her gynecologist pleaded guilty to two charges after Yang and 17 other women filed complaints.Andrew Yang says institutions must do more to prevent violence, but there must be a cultural change, too.“First, we have to listen to and respond and protect women,” Yang says. “We also need to work on helping our boys become strong, healthy men because strong, healthy men do not abuse and assault women.”Yang plans to campaign continuously in Iowa until Caucus Night. Yang’s bus tour is in contrast to the three U.S. senators running for president who must be in D.C. for the impeachment trial.“I wish that the senators didn’t have to head to D.C. for this trial and that they could be here campaigning, too,” Yang says, “but our plan was always to be here and really eager to get our message out to Iowans over the next two weeks.”Yang on Tuesday made stops in Forest City, Northwood and Mason Citylast_img read more
