Who is the person not a lawyer who is serving As a judge and is there not some Good reason to suggest that a person running for judge should not have some Legal background. Otherwise How can a person know the Law thank you. Anon Man. A your questions were referred to Bert Montague director of the administrative office of the courts of n c and to a Jurist on a High tribunal whose views according to Montague were substantially the same the director in a letter received Atter the primary said there Are ten District court judges without Legal training he did not name them he said the candidate missed the Mark of accuracy much further when he stated that there was no reason Why one had to be a lawyer in order to be a judge Quot Quot judges Deal with our lives liberties and wrote Montague.

His Only recourse is an Appeal to the court of appeals on errors of Law such appeals Are expensive in today s complicated society i see no Way to justify the no lawyer judge.
