Polston Invested as Fla. Supreme Court Justice

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Ricky Polston has been formally invested as a Florida Supreme Court justice.

At the ceremony Tuesday, Gov. Charlie Crist praised the former
appellate court judge for already demonstrating "fairness and humility" while serving on Florida's highest court.

Polston, of Tallahassee, began hearing cases shortly after Crist appointed him in October to replace Kenneth Bell, who resigned to
return to his hometown, Pensacola.

That was the second of four vacancies - a majority of the seven-member high court - that Crist will be filling in less than a year. He's also named Justices Charles Canady and Jorge Labarga.
The next opening will be in March when Justice Charles Wells
retires.
