DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA FOURTH DISTRICT JAMES FORNEY, Appellant, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Appellee. No. 4D17-3854 [February 28, 2018] Appeal of order denying rule 3.850 motion from the Circuit Court for the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit, Broward County; Ilona M. Holmes, Judge; L.T. Case No. 04-990 CF10A. James Forney, Raiford, pro se. No appearance required for appellee. PER CURIAM. We affirm the summary denial of appellant’s successive rule 3.850 motion for post-conviction relief. We write only to address appellant’s claim that the orders entered after he filed a motion to disqualify the trial judge were void. This claim is meritless because appellant failed to serve the motion on the judge. See Fla. R. Jud. Admin. 2.330(c), (j); Braddy v. State, 111 So. 3d 810, 833 (Fla. 2012); Hedrick v. State, 6 So. 3d 688, 693 (Fla. 4th DCA 2009). Affirmed. WARNER, CIKLIN and KUNTZ, JJ., concur. * * * Not final until disposition of timely filed motion for rehearing.
