We enter the final thirty six hours until the judicial races for 2014 are decided on Friday May 2, 2014 at 12:01 PM.
On that date and time, the eyes of the free world (or at least a few hundred lawyers and judges) will be on this blog, as the Captain brings you up to date on the judicial races.
Who has opposition?
Who got a free ride?
We will have it all.
The latest breaking news is that Judge Zabel drew opposition, supposedly from a lawyer with an agenda on a marriage case of some sort (gay marriage?).
There have been a myriad of judicial receptions all over town this week, and your favourite robed readers who are up for re-election this year having been making the rounds, eating the brie, sipping a coke, and shaking hands.
The constant contact with those who wear robes and those who want to was enough to send us to a long, hot shower, with plenty of disinfectant soap.
So stay tuned, as the news breaks, and some judges open the bubbly, while others roll up the sleeves of their robes and get to work campaigning.
See you in court.
