Lawyer Christian Carrazana has filed to run against Judge Rodney Smith.
Right up to the time he filed to run, Carrazana was gainfully employed by some firm named Panter and Panter.
Once he filed, he was fired.
How do we know this?
Upon being fired, Carrazana immediately filed a petition to modify his child support, and blamed his firing on his refusal to agree to Panter's demand (or was it the other Panter's demand? Or both? It's not clear) he switch from running against Judge Smith to an open seat.
Seems a bit unseemly to us. Also seems like Carrazana needs a good lawyer to examine his options against Panter, or Panter, or both.
As to the motion to take money from the care of his child, we disapprove. You should be able to to take care of your child before spending money on a judicial campaign. Family should be first. Especially children. Seems like bad judgement. Something you don't want in a judge.
Just our opinion. Mr. Carrazana has an open invite to respond however he likes without any editing by us.
See You In Court.
