The Florida Supreme Court has appointed Eric Maclure its ninth state courts administrator to lead the nearly 200 employees in the Office of the State Courts Administrator.

“Eric is a person of great character and his performance serving the judicial branch and the people of our state has been consistently excellent,” said Chief Justice Carlos Muñiz. “Eric brings to this role a wealth of experience, acquired through decades of hard work. The state courts system and our justice partners will benefit from his leadership.”

Maclure has served since September as interim state courts administrator. His appointment comes following a decade of service to the Office of the State Courts Administrator, or OSCA, in a variety of leadership positions. He first joined OSCA as director of community and intergovernmental relations in 2013 following work as staff in the Legislature for 17 years. He became a deputy state courts administrator in 2013 and directed many units within OSCA.

Maclure earned his undergraduate degree from West Virginia University, a master’s degree in public administration from George Washington University, and his law degree from the University of North Carolina.

The position of state courts administrator was created by the Supreme Court after a voter-approved reorganization of the courts in 1972 resulted in the statewide court structure that, among other things, created the Office of the State Courts Administrator.
