ACTION OF THE BOARD UPHELD.
FLORIDA STATE BOARD OF ARCHITECTURE
Office of the Secretary
Mellen C. Greeley
Jacksonville, Florida
July 11, 1939
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD
Dear Fellow Member:
I have just received an opinion from the State Su-
preme Court in regard to mandamus bhy Otis Ainsworth
Skinner against the Board to compel the Board to grant
him registration without examination. I will enclose
copy of the opinion which has been furnished by our
attorney, Mr. Harry T. Gray.
To brief the case:
Mr. Skinner applied for registration by exemption
without examination submitting evidence to show that
while he had practiced architecture in several states he
had never been registered in any of those states. The
evidence indicated that Mr. Skinner had been accus-
tomed to secure work, perhaps in his own name and then
take that work into a registered architect's office where
the work was done possibly by Mr. Skinner, but the
drawings and specifications issued in the name of the
registered architect. The evidence would seem to indi-
cate that Mr. Skinner had actually negotiated and per-
haps had actually prepared the contract documents, but
that at no time was he registered.
The Board refused registration without examination
as we claim that Mr. Skinner could not have practiced
as an architect legally in states having registration with-
out having secured his certificate of registration. No
question of Mr. Skinner's ability as a draftsman or per-
haps as an architect was ever given consideration,-the
Board merely standing in its position that Mr. Skinner
was not an architect in the full sense of the title in that
he had not practiced as a principal, as such practice
would have been illegal in states having registration.
Mr. Skinner mandamused the Board in the Supreme
Court demanding that he be granted registration without
examination. His attorney filed a long declaration up-
on which the Board's attorney filed motion to quash Mr.
Skinner's writ. The matter was argued orally and noth-
ing was heard of the matter for about two months until
the opinion filed July 7 was received. Evidently the
fact of the court being divided delayed final action which
would account for the length of time consumed.
It would appear that, while the Board did not win
a decisive victory we still did not lose, or as Mr. Gray
has put it:-we had a suit against us and now, by this
decision, we do not have a suit against us. If there had

been a suit in the lower court and we had lost and then
the case had gone to the Supreme Court and the Court
had been divided, three and three, the decision of the
Judge in the lower court would have been the deciding
factor, and we would have lost. However this case orig-
inated in the Supreme Court so there was no lower court
decision to affect the case.
The original documents in this case are on file in the
office of the Board and in Mr. Gray's office. If there is
any need for them, or, if any member cares to see them,
please advise me.
Very sincerely,
Signed:-Mellen C. Greeley
Secretary-Treasurer
State Board of Architecture.

Opinion filed Jul]y 7, 1939.
A case of original jurisdiction-Mandamus
Paul C. Albritton for Relator,
Harry T. Gray, Marks, Marks, Holt, Gray & Yates,
for Respondents
PER CURIAM
This is a mandamus proceeding to require the Florida
State Board of Architecture to issue relator a certificate
as a Registered Architect under the laws of Florida.
There was a motion to quash the alternative writ. Ar-
guments were heard which, with briefs and the plead-
ings, have been considered. Mr. Justices, Whitfield,
Terrell and Chapman think the motion to quash should
be granted while Mr. Justices Brown, Buford, and
Thomas are of the opinion that it should be denied. Be-
ing an original proceeding in this Court and the" C6urt
being equally divided and there being no prospect. of
an immediate change in the Court, the motion to quash
is denied and the proceeding is dismissed.
It is so ordered.
