Governor Ron DeSantis has appointed Roger Gannam to serve as a judge on the Sixth District Court of Appeal. Gannam will take the bench in September and fill the judicial vacancy created by the elevation of Meredith Sasso to the Florida Supreme Court.
Gannam joined Liberty Counsel as Senior Litigation Counsel in August 2014 and became Assistant Vice President of Legal Affairs in July 2016.
Previously, Gannam was a Partner at Lindell & Farson, P.A. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of North Florida and juris doctor at the University of Florida.
Gannam was part of the Liberty Counsel legal team that won 9-0 at the U.S. Supreme Court last year in the case of Shurtleff v. City of Boston.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Governor Ron DeSantis has made an excellent choice in appointing Roger Gannam to serve on the Sixth District Court of Appeal. Since 2014, Roger has been a vital member of Liberty Counsel’s legal team. Roger is committed to the rule of law.”
