  1. Of course, a Liberal Democrat Black attorney seeking to stop Conservative Columbia County from splitting off from their Liberal Distric Attorney, now that Columbia County is plenty big enough to have it’s own County district, has gotten a retired Black Liberal Judge to rule against the State Legislature and Governor in favor of the Liberals who want to let all the criminal go free if they are Black. Just check out her history, after reading her bio:

    Hon. Gail S. Tusan, Senior Judge brings more than 30 years of judicial service in various Georgia jurisdictions to her practice at JAMS. Most recently, Judge Tusan retired from her sixth elected term as a superior court judge in Fulton County. During her time on the superior court, Judge Tusan served two successful terms as chief judge, and played an active role in the design and launch of the Family Division, which implemented a case management system featuring mediations and judicially hosted settlement conferences where she also served for over a decade.

    Since joining JAMS, Judge Tusan has served as mediator and arbitrator for disputes involving commercial contracts, real estate disputes, distributor/supplier agreements, family business and family law matters, FLSA and employment contracts and discrimination and civil rights issues. Many of these matters have involved multiple parties. Recently, Judge Tusan has handled several matters using video technology to allow for ADR processes to be conducted remotely.

    Judge Tusan’s diverse career and extensive legal and community service have garnered her a reputation for building consensus during disputes and forging partnerships among the legal community, government and the public they serve. She is frequently asked to participate in educational programming for the legal community.

    Prior to joining the bench, Judge Tusan practiced civil litigation in a variety of areas, including intellectual property, unfair competition, franchise law, family law and other general business matters.

    • What was racist in his post? Was there any implication whatsoever that any of the mentioned people were inferior because of the skin color? No, he did not, He suggested that they are biased to liberal policy, an easy conclusion when AA’s vote 95% + Democrat.

    • You do realize the case is built upon racial tones for Columbia county wanting to separate from Richmond County. Pointing out background info and bio on judges involved in the process is nothing more than informing the public of information that’s already available
