C.B. Upton, one of two deputy legal counsels Gov. Rick Scott hired in January, left his $100,000 job in the governor's office for a law firm in Tallahassee a month later.
Upton, who was the Department of State's general counsel and worked in the Attorney General's office before joining Scott, now works for GrayRobinson, a corporate law firm with 10 offices in Florida. See his bio here.
Upton did not respond to an e-mail about his departure or new job.
He left Scott's office Feb. 19, according to Amy Graham, Scott spokeswoman.
