With this appointment, there will be three women sitting on the Florida Supreme Court simultaneously for the first time in Florida history.
 
“I am proud to appoint Judge Meredith Sasso to the Florida Supreme Court because her fidelity to the Constitution will help preserve freedom in our state for generations to come,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “As a Cuban-American woman who understands the importance of our constitutional system and the rule of law, Judge Sasso will serve our state well.”

Judge Sasso received her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida in 2005 and her law degree from the University of Florida in 2008, where she was a member of the Justice Campbell Thornal Moot Court Board. Judge Sasso began her career in private practice, representing clients in large loss general liability, auto negligence, and complex commercial claims in state and federal courts at trial and on appeal. She also served as a guardian ad litem, representing abused or neglected children. Prior to serving on the court, Judge Sasso served as Chief Deputy General Counsel for Governor Rick Scott. In this role, she represented the Governor’s Office in litigation before the Florida Supreme Court, the First District Court of Appeal, and state and federal trial courts, among other duties. In January 2019, she was appointed to the Fifth District Court of Appeal. Judge Sasso was recommissioned to the Sixth District Court of Appeal from the Fifth District on January 1, 2023, by Governor DeSantis.
