After I wrote earlier today on Legal Blog Watch about Law Day, I came across this Law Day essay by an old friend of mine, Tom Bolt, a lawyer in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Here’s an excerpt:

“[R]emoving judges from the bench through campaigns of misinformation and innuendo, as has occurred in several jurisdictions, does a disservice to the judiciary and, ultimately, to all citizens. Better that we should all strive to understand the judicial process as a means of promoting accountability than to undermine the benefits of a fair and impartial judiciary.”

Worth a read.
