The 24 x 7 Judge

Conversation with Circuit Judge Lisa T. Munyon

The phone rings in the middle of the night. An officer is requesting to get a search warrant signed. Time is of the essence. The judge may be miles away. What is the legal system to do? Enter emergency duty.

In episode 13 of the Open Ninth Podcast, “The 24/7 Judge,” Judge Lisa Munyon talks with Chief Judge Fred Lauten about the wide range of responsibilities judges have and how changes in technology allow our circuit’s judges to be available to law enforcement 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including on all holidays.

Judge Munyon took the bench in 2003 and is currently the administrative judge of the circuit civil division. She has extensive knowledge of computer software and its applications in the courts. She presently chairs the Florida Courts Technology Commission, which aims at harnessing technology to deliver quicker and more cost-effective justice to persons navigating through Florida’s courts.
