A friend just contacted me with a question about the municipal judges’ races in Atlanta:

There are several Municipal Court Judges listed on the ballot with the question (yes/no) on whether the judge should be retained. I don’t know anything about judges, so I hoped you guys could advise me on any of these you may know.

So here they are.  I don’t know much about them — hopefully by the next election cycle, we will have much more information about judges’ records.  Nothing would do more for public safety in Atlanta than reforming the courts and insisting on searchable, public databases of all case outcomes.

If you have anything to say about the performance of the judges below, comment away.  Keep it clean, please!
