DOUGLAS PUBLIC SAFETY COMMISSION MEETS: The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, which was created this year as part of a school-safety law, will meet in Broward County. Among the topics will be school discipline and diversion programs. Lawmakers formed the commission after the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people. (Thursday, 8:30 a.m., BB&T Center, Chairman’s Club, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise.)
FACEBOOK FRIENDS ON DOCKET: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments in three cases, including a dispute about whether a circuit judge should be disqualified from a case because she was a Facebook friend of an attorney representing one of the parties. The Herssein Law Group took the issue to the Supreme Court after the 3rd District Court of Appeal rejected a request to disqualify Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Beatrice Butchko. The dispute stems from a lawsuit that the firm filed against a former client, United Services Automobile Association, for alleged breach of contract and fraud. As part of the case, the law firm accused a company official of witness tampering, and USAA hired Israel Reyes, a former judge, to represent the official. The Herssein firm sought to disqualify Butchko because she was a Facebook friend of Reyes. The firm raised concerns about receiving a fair and impartial trial, but Butchko declined to recuse herself. (Thursday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)
SUPREME COURT RELEASES OPINIONS: The Florida Supreme Court is scheduled to release its weekly opinions. (Thursday, 11 a.m.)
