A Palm Beach County jurist who served 19 years in the Florida Attorney General Criminal Appeals Division has been appointed judge of the 15th Judicial Circuit Court by Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to a post by the Florida Bar Association.
Melanie Suber of Delray Beach was named to the post late last week. She was previously appointed in 2019 to serve as a judge in Palm Beach County.
Surber received her bachelor’s degree from Boston University and her law degree from Nova Southeastern University.
Surber fills the judicial vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Janis Brustares Keyser.
