QUALITIES OF A GOOD JUDGE
Political advertising paid for by Scot Dollinger who subscribes to the Code of Fair Campaign Practices - Scot Dollinger Treasurer.
The most important quality of a judge is integrity. Integrity means obeying the rule of law which echoes out to respect for (i) separation of powers, (ii) substantive and procedural due process and (iii) equal application of the law: cornerstones of democracy and correct judicial outcomes. Another way to say it is: "Every good judge has to check his politics at the door and be focused on universally correct outcomes in every instance based on the rule of law." The next important quality of a judge is humility. Humility opens the mind's eye to truth - arrogance is blind. The third important quality of a judge is diligence. Diligence gets the work done both efficiently and effectively. With integrity, humility and diligence a good judge appreciates the law is here to serve humankind and not the other way around. The law is intended to justly bring the greatest good to the greatest number while protecting the individual from the tyranny of the majority. These things I believe. As a judge, I live by these beliefs.
