IN RE: DILIGENT PERFORMANCE OF JUDICIAL DUTIES

The chief judge in each circuit shall separately communicate to all trial court judges in that circuit the importance of a professional work ethic and accountability to the judiciary as a full-time commitment under the Code and the Constitution of Florida. This commitment includes the responsibility set forth in Canon 3C(1) requiring that a judge “should cooperate with other judges and court officials in the administration of court business.” Where a judge’s calendar allows, each judge should cooperate with other judges to assure that all cases and matters are handled as efficiently and expeditiously as possible. In addition, each chief judge shall take all administrative actions necessary to monitor the work of each judge of the circuit to ensure that appropriate action is taken in any case where a judge neglects his or her duties.
