Ryan Adam Lipner is running for Broward Circuit Court against Judge Stacy Ross. According to the law, Lipner cannot serve as a Broward County Circuit Court Judge because he is not a lawyer. But Broward officials say lacking a law degree did not stop Lipner from practicing law.

In July 2014, Lipner was arrested for Grand Theft in the first degree and criminal solicitation for practicing law without a license. According to the arrest report, Lipner took money from a woman in exchange for legal advice. The case is currently pending in the mental health court.
