In Times Pub. Co. v. Ake, 645 So.2d 1003 (2nd DCA, Fla.), the Second District Court of Appeal said, “In the performance of his [her] duties as the court's record keeper, the clerk is a ministerial officer of the court devoid of discretion. Corbin v. State ex rel. Slaughter, 324 So.2d 203 (Fla. 1st DCA 1975). The court has the inherent and exclusive constitutional authority over its agencies who act in its behalf. See, The Florida Bar, 398 So.2d 446 (Fla.1981). The clerk, when acting in the exercise of his duties derived from article V is acting as an arm of the court.”
