Florida Judge Steps Down, Laments Privacy Invasion Following

Davidkw2-600x450A judge in the Florida Keys said his recent decision to retire early came after a number of media outlets began posting stories and information about his Manhunt profile – a move the judge called an “inappropriate invasion of my privacy.”

Judge David Audlin announced in April that he was retiring with four years left on his term. Friday was the Monroe County chief circuit judge's last day.

Audlin, 56, did nothing illegal and no one has called on him to resign. But Audlin said after contemplating the matter for several months he decided to return to private practice.

"I'm looking forward to my constitutional rights being restored — my right to privacy and to be left alone in my private life, " he said Friday.

Audlin [pictured far right below] said he has never tried to hide his sexuality.

Audlin contended that a judge’s personal life should be kept off limits if it does not interfere with his ability to be a good judge, be fair to people and have a proper, professional demeanor. “I think some people look at a gay judge’s personal life as being interesting or salacious. I suppose it’s the times we live in. This whole matter has nothing to do with my service to the people or my work as a judge.”

The comments under the postings about Audlin’s profile, which included his sexual preference and size of his genitalia, were mostly negative. And while Audlin repeated that his profile was supposed to remain on the private site, he added: “I don’t think to gay people it was unusual or extreme. I guess it’s offensive to others with more conservative, religious beliefs. I get that.”

The Keys law community has had nothing but good things to say publicly about Audlin as a judge and person since he announced his retirement.

Where are some cheap resorts in the Florida/Alabama panhandle area?

With family activities near by, for a family reunion event

There are two areas in the Florida Panhandle that you'll find cheap resorts. The first is Pensacola Beach. It is a smaller area so the prices are reasonable and there is still enough activities to keep the family busy. You can find more about their hotels and resorts on . Another option that is still affordable but will have much more to do is Panama City Beach. They have built a ton of hotels and condos the past few years so the rates have gone down and the quality has gone up. You can visit for more info and hotels. Hope this helps!

Is there a clothing optional resort in the upper panhandle of Florida?

We are going on vacation and have an extra day to spend and I wanted to bring my other half to clothing optional resort for a day but we are only going into the upper panhandle... anyone know of one?

Map of clothing optional or nude resorts in Florida is here:

Naturist Resort near Pensacola might need your needs.

in mind though, this is a nudist resort, not a clothing optional one. If it's your significant other's first time - it might be a bit much.

I've never been to Riviera before, although I have been to Caliente in Tampa. While I realize that's not panhandle - I'd also point out that resort is indeed clothing optional (vice nude), it's also quite well done - many naturist clubs can be a bit rustic.

Florida panhandle travel suggestions?

We are a family of four (incl. 2 teens) interested in travelling to the Florida Panhandle in June of 2007. Is that a good time to go? What beach location is best (destin, fort walton beach etc.)?
Pls suggest a beach front luxury condo or all suite resort recommendations. Things to do, etc.
Thanks!

Seascape Is a good place to stay and it's right across from the beach in destin...As far as the best beach I feel it's about equal ...There is a lot in the area to do ...The tourist industry in this area has suffered due to hurricanes.But everything is back to almost 100%....This year it was really slow and we became the weekend get away and with gas prices so high it wasn't that bad this year..So it's really hard to say about the time of year....But June is always better than July.....You can email me or im me and I would be glad to answer any more questions
