Florida governor told he must pick judge from all-white list

The ruling by the Florida Supreme Court commended Gov. Charlie Crist's effort to diversify court positions when he rejected a list of recommendations for an appeals court post because it included no African-American or Hispanic candidates. But the court said the state's constitution doesn't give the governor that discretion. The ruling was written by a Crist appointee, Justice Jorge Labarga.
