The 2009 Rookie of the Year

Congratulations to Judge Shawna Reagin of the 176th District Court who won the 2009 Rookie of the Year at the CJC by a very large margin.

For those of us who practice regularly in her court, that comes as no real surprise. Judge Reagin has done a great job of combining intelligence, fairness and compassion to prove herself as an excellent judge in her first year.

She is backed up by a great court staff that make a visit to her court both a professional and pleasant experience.

Congrats Judge!

I think it's interesting that you mention the staff in congratulating Judge Reagin for winning the poll. That poses an interesting question: For a new judge does the staff make the judge? It is interesting to note that Reagin kept most of the staff when she took the bench. And those who performed the worst in your poll changed the whole staff of their respective courts. Clearly there' s a correlation.

Hopefully the newly elected judges in 2010 will learn something from this observation.
