Judge William Hatten

I just learned that Judge William Hatten passed away this morning.

He lived a long, happy, and distinguished life.

He was retired from the bench and doing only his visiting judge job when I first met him.

I extend my sympathy on his passing and my congratulations on a life well lived.

That's too bad. He hosted the Halloween festivities for our neighborhood forever - the haunted gulch was in the ravine in back. Once he wasn't able to do the work himself, he still sat out and greeted everyone. He will be missed.

The article on the new jury assembly mention some quotes from Judge Mark Ellis. Ellis speaks about efficiency and not making jurors feel closterphobic. Is that not abbot ironic? Ellis has the longest voir dire in the courthouse. It is pure torture.
