  1. You can’t tell from this letter if each lawyer is trying to gain brownie points in his court. Or if they are just sticking together as a group to support a judge who thinks he is the law. And he can make the commissioners spend the public’s hard earned tax money any way he wants them to in order to make up for the BADLY raised youth in the Augusta area that can’t be brought under control. It is all so shamful to see all of these local lawyers standing up for this bully of a Judge, even if he has been a good judge in the past doesn’t make this current action correct, and the raises were way out of line too high for his daughter and her co-workers.

  2. I must admit that I was surprised to see some if the names if lawyers who signed this letter. My first thought was Why? He has resigned and his resignation has been accepted. What difference does this letter make?

  3. Richard, I too was interested to learn that I recognized a lot of the signatures on the letter and know a few well enough that they would know me on the street. That said, the letter matters in the record as possibly being the right thing to do. I sincerely doubt that even a few on this list, if any, need, nor desire, any brownie points in the court as Jim states might be the case. There are always three sides to every case, the plaintiff’s, the defendant’s and the truth. In this case, this letter just reinforces what I already knew, and that is you can’t just get all your information from one side, you must consider other voices as well before you form an opinion and verdict.

  4. I agree with most of this letter as I have spent countless hours in his courtroom. However, if you recall Lady Justice is blind! She can’t tell what color, religion, creed, well you get the picture.

  5. Judges have to be held to a higher standard of our country would fail. It has been demonstrated how these kinds of judges think they are above the law and he probably thought no one would be brave enough to challenge him on his pious endeavors. Yes, I think he was a kind person in many ways, a godly man, but a man that now has been found out in ways that it is only right that he should not continue in his capacity ever again and of course like many before him and after him, he sites health reasons and family! That want do in the light of what we know now and if he does not do as it is mandated in those court documents they will start the process again to show his intent and his crimes against the AJC and our community. Don’t forget these folks have a lot of power over their constituents and anyone that doesn’t think so, have not been in and around the court system. He want be the last and he was not the only one to act in this kind of selfless power wielding behavior. God save us all from folks that can’t behave!
