PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION BULLE IN WWW.PALMBEACHBAR.ORG | OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE PALM BEACH COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION Judge Scott Kerner A Native of Palm Beach County, Judge Scott Kerner was born at Good Samaritan Hospital as Hurricane “David” was skirting the Florida coast – and, in particular, Palm Beach County. His parents originally planned to name him “David,” however, they decided against it due to the impending hurricane David which had just crushed the Dominican Republic as a category 5 hurricane. The Kerner family welcomed their second son a few years later and were then able to use the name, David. Judge Scott Kerner’s brother is David Kerner, currently a Palm Beach County Commissioner who was previously a police officer and then a two-term member of the Florida House of Representatives. Judge Kerner’s election to the Circuit Court Bench in November 2018 follows a long family tradition of community service. | MAY 2019 Jessica Callow To Be Sworn In As President On June 1st Please save the date and join us for the Palm Beach County Bar Association's annual Installation Banquet.
