Chief justice: Fla. courts can't stand more cuts

That has whittled the court system's support staffing by about 300 positions to 2,700. Florida also ranks 45th in trial judges per capita and the court system accounts for only 0.7 percent of the state's budget, Canady said.

Canady also warned that the state relies too much on foreclosure fees. The state court system's $370 million trust fund pays most of its expenses and receives $285 million, or nearly 80 percent of that total, from foreclosure fees.
