Judges Joseph P. Baker, Ted Coleman and W. Rogers Turner -- each well-known because of their judicial duration -- have packed up their chambers at the Orange County Courthouse and retired.

Baker, 66, spent 25 years as a judge in Orlando and was considered one of the courthouse's reigning intellectuals.He said being a judge for so long offered many rewards but required a fair amount of personal sacrifice as well.
Baker, who attended Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania as an undergraduate and the University of Michigan for law school, has enrolled as a doctoral candidate at the University of South Florida in the Tampa-based school's philosophy department.

Private interviews by judge? No

The article last Sunday about Circuit Judge Joe Baker interviewing his son-in-law and a computer-consultant friend to help him decide whether to reduce a $2 million jury verdict against Disney Vacation Club Management Corp. to $1,000 misses the point.

If Judge Baker is convicted of violating judicial ethics in his upcoming public trial, it would be an irony indeed if, after Baker has hired a lawyer to confront and cross-examine witnesses, the decision was based on private interviews outside the courtroom. I have a feeling that his lawyer would appeal and win a reversal as Judge Baker was reversed when he did private interviews.
