Janet Reno on Government Reform
Former Attorney General; Democratic Challenger FL Governor
When a workable compromise emerged, she drafted the legal terminology that abolished municipal courts and created a uniform two-tiered trial system: county courts for small cases; state circuit courts for large civil cases and major crimes. Under the plan, appeals would be heard by state district courts and then the state supreme court.
Voters ratified the amendment the next year. Reno had earned a reputation as the consummate legislative staffer-someone who did the hard work but let the politicians take the glory.
