In an article this morning, it was noted that two judges in Hampton Roads are in trouble:
Norfolk Circuit Judge Norman A. Thomas faced tough questions Friday from state lawmakers with the power to give him another eight-year term. Virginia Beach Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Ramona D. Taylor was not invited for an interview – the only judge with an expiring term to be so snubbed, according to a legislative official.
I guess the panel figured Taylor, who was censured in 2009, is just not going to be re-appointed so why waste the time on an interview.
Judges from across the state were interviewed (pdf) Friday. It will be interesting to see the outcome as time progresses.
