Open Ninth

Conversations Beyond the Courtroom.


Let’s talk Soccer or should we say football?

Since the downtown Orlando courthouse is a few blocks from the Lion’s Den - - home of Orlando City Soccer - - it is appropriate that we speak to a Judge who played college soccer and who is also an avid Orlando City soccer fan. Listen to Circuit Judge Don Myers talk about playing Soccer for Winter Park High School as a striker and for Emory University playing in the defensive position of a sweeper. He talks about the global, and now a local, phenomenon of soccer. Listen as Judge Lauten discusses with Judge Myers how Orlando City Soccer has changed the face of sports in Orlando, the competitive spirit necessary to play, injuries, teamwork, the nuances of the game, and the passion he has for what was once considered a secondary sport.

Judge Myers currently serves in the Complex Civil Litigation division and as Administrative Judge for the Appellate division.
