Hillsborough judge is Gov. Crist's choice for appeals court

TAMPA — Hillsborough Circuit Judge Marva L. Crenshaw has been appointed to the 2nd District Court of Appeal, Gov. Charlie Crist announced Wednesday.

Crenshaw, 57, fills a vacancy created by the appointment of Justice Charles T. Canady to the Florida Supreme Court.

"Judge Crenshaw is a distinguished jurist of high integrity," Crist said in a statement. "She has served as a role model of fairness and hard work not just in legal circles, but in the community, where she speaks to youth groups about the importance of education."

In June, Crist skipped over Crenshaw and two other Hillsborough judges slated as finalists for an opening on the 2nd District Court of Appeal created when Judge E.J. Salcines retired. The governor chose Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge Nelly Khouzam instead.

A lifelong Florida resident, Crenshaw has served as a Hillsborough County Circuit Court judge since August 2000.

She has also worked as an assistant state attorney in Miami-Dade County. Crenshaw earned her bachelor's degree from the Tuskegee Institute in 1973 and graduated from the University of Florida College of Law in 1975.
