The Florida Supreme Court Historical Society presented “A Supreme Evening” in Tallahassee on January 18th, 2024. As a gold-level sponsor, Bedell proudly supported the Historical Society’s mission of preserving court history and fostering ongoing outreach and education initiatives.

Bedell Director Hank Coxe — former president of the Historical Society and past Florida Bar president — also served as the event’s master of ceremonies for the tenth year in a row. As usual, he performed admirably, and humorously, alongside speakers remarking on the critically important work of the courts in protecting personal rights and freedoms.

The event took place at the FSU Dunlap Champions Club at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee and featured a fireside chat with former U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, the evening’s distinguished guest. Chief Justice Carlos G. Muñiz also delivered a “State of the Court” presentation.

The event also honored Sylvia Walbolt with the Susan Rosenblatt Lifetime Achievement Award. She is known for her experience in civil appeals and pro bono service.

Bedell, a long-time advocate for legal history preservation, consistently sponsors this event, a tradition that reflects our dedication to the legal community and underscores the importance of sustaining the Historical Society’s impactful work.
