Summary:

The Public Defender advised the trial court that its caseload had become so excessive that it could no longer take new non-capital felony cases. The trial court issued an order allowing the office to refuse some new cases. The Third District Court of Appeal overturned that ruling. In a second similar case, the trial court issued an order approving a request for an individual public defender to withdraw from a case. The 3rd DCA overturned that ruling as well.
