Alaska’s judges

by Peter Twitchell

I know good lawyers and good judges, and I’ve known some lousy ones. Unfortunately not every lawyer is as good as some I’ve had to deal with. Not every judge is as good as Judge Nora Guinn was.
Speaking of judges, we get our fair share of them here in Alaska that don’t serve us well. We are better off without them but they are protected by the law and not so simple to get rid of.
But you know who they are and most likely they were the same lousy judges wherever they came from.
Congress set up the law judges here in Alaska and that is one of the reasons we don’t have a robust justice system. Judge Ray served the State of Alaska and the Bethel region well prior to moving out of district. Thank you.
