Two years ago, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Jorge Labarga became the first Hispanic person to lead the state’s judicial system. On July 1, he’ll begin his second term in that role — becoming the first chief justice to succeed himself since the end of the Civil War and the first in four decades to serve more than one term.
