Hunter to lead Florida Board of Bar Examiners

first_img Hunter to lead Florida Board of Bar Examiners June 1, 2003 Regular News Hunter to lead Florida Board of Bar Examinerscenter_img Having started her career in her last year at Florida State University College of Law as a clerk for Justice Ben Overton, Eleanor Hunter, the newly hired executive director of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners, says its feels as though her career has come full circle.“I am glad to be back in the judicial branch,” said Hunter, who spent 12 years as an administrative law judge and also was in private practice.Hunter now takes over the seat of former executive director Kathryn Ressel, who Hunter said was a big help in the first week on the job last month. Still becoming familiar with the new position, Hunter recalls her impressions of the Board of Bar Examiners as a law student.“All I thought they did when I was an applicant is nag you to update information,” said Hunter, who now says she has a deeper appreciation for the organization that arguably is responsible for the integrity of a profession.With this in mind, Hunter looks forward to her time as executive director and hopes to continue some of the organization’s goals.“I want to make sure that we process applications as efficiently as possible,” Hunter said. “I’d also like to enhance the staff’s ability to take advantage of new technology.”One of Hunter’s goals is make the submission of bar applications available online. Currently, she said, the bar application must be filled out, printed, and then sent in, but cannot submitted online.Hunter also thinks her time as an administrative law judge could help her in this new position. “It’s not unlike the process here. Some of the same kinds of issues apply,” said Hunter.Confident, Hunter is thankful for the opportunity to do public service in the judicial branch, and said if she were to leave a legacy, she would want it to be that she helped bring into the profession more “capable and honest” lawyers.last_img read more

Pat Fahy thrilled with Morning Assembly comeback run

first_img “I’ve never bullied him to get to this stage. We have eased him back to get where we are, and he has a number of options now including at Haydock over an extra mile, and the Bobbyjo back here. “Davy (Russell) liked him, and he should improve from that. However, the ground is the key and it probably won’t last like that for much longer.” Pat Fahy expects Morning Assembly to make plenty of progress after finishing a narrow second on his return from a long lay-off at Fairyhouse on Saturday. Having his first run since April 2014, Morning Assembly was beaten just a head in a rated chase, leaving Fahy to consider the next target for his Grade One-placed chaser. Fahy said: “I’m extremely happy with that. I felt coming here if he was involved over the last few fences I’d be happy, but to battle back the way he did was great. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Man Utd Levels on Point with Tottenham in Fifth-place

first_imgManchester United leveled on points with fifth-placed Tottenham after victory at West Ham, who played for 75 minutes with 10 men following the controversial dismissal of Sofiane Feghouli.Referee Mike Dean showed Feghouli a straight red card after the midfielder’s 15th-minute challenge on Phil Jones.Replays showed it was more of a coming together between two players committed to winning the ball than a reckless challenge meant to cause harm.Antonio Valencia was guilty of an astonishing miss for the visitors before substitute Juan Mata scored from 10 yards after Marcus Rashford’s clever pass.Zlatan Ibrahimovic was one of three players offside when he doubled the lead after Pedro Obiang’s clearance fell to Ander Herrera. It was Jose Mourinho’s side’s sixth straight Premier League win and their seventh in all competitions.The Hammers have beaten Bournemouth, Sunderland, Burnley and Hull at home this season, yet their hopes of claiming a first major scalp at London Stadium were undone by the fastest sending off in the Premier League this season.There is no doubt Feghouli lost control of the ball and deserved a booking for his challenge on Jones.But Dean, who sent off Southampton’s Nathan Redmond in the 4-1 defeat by Tottenham on Wednesday, brandished a red card for the fifth time this season, much to the fury of West Ham boss Slaven Bilic.Jones, who was clearly hurt and rolled over several times before receiving treatment, was booed by home fans for the rest of the game each time he touched the ball.Feghouli is now set to miss his side’s FA Cup third-round home tie against Manchester City on Friday, while Hammers supporters showed their anger at the official by chanting ‘Mike Dean – it’s all about you’.In the second half, Dean kept his cards in his pocket after Cheikhou Kouyate’s reckless challenge on Henrikh Mkhitaryan.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
