14-Jan-12 – The current judge, an associate judge, a law professor, and two other attorneys – along with condo attorney Ellis Levin – are all running to fill the shoes of Circuit Court Judge Melvin J. Cole.
Retiring in 2010, Cole was judge for the 8th sub-circuit, which stretches as far south as the Stevenson Expressway and as far north as the Edgewater community.
A final witness, Judge Melvin Cole, was called as a character witness on behalf of Respondent.
Upon examination, Judge Cole acknowledged that he had not spoken to anyone regarding Respondent's reputation in the legal community and any opinion as to Respondent's reputation would be based solely on his own personal experience and observance.
Judge Cole did state that he had referred two matters to Respondent and he did speak to those clients and knew their opinion of the quality of Respondent's work.
We decline to give any weight to the testimony of Judge Cole, however, since his opinion of Respondent's reputation in the legal community was confined to knowledge of Respondent's reputation for competence rather than to his reputation for truth and veracity.
