Circuit Court Judge John Fogleman announces his candidacy for a seat on the Arkansas Supreme Court on Tuesday at a news conference at the Holiday Inn in Jonesboro as his wife, Nancy, looks on.
Fogleman kicked off his campaign Tuesday in his hometown of Marion, before visiting Jonesboro during the first day of a 2-day tour of the state. Fogleman told a crowd at the Jonesboro Holiday Inn that his court experience best qualifies him for the state Supreme Court seat. “I grew up around the law,†Fogleman said. “I remember people coming to our house when I was a child to see my father because he was an attorney, and they needed help. I saw firsthand the good the law could do.†Fogleman’s uncle, John A. Fogleman, served as a justice to the Arkansas Supreme Court from 1967 until 1980, when he was appointed chief justice of the state’s highest court. Fogleman said he worked on his uncle’s campaign, which taught him how important the work of the court was to the people in a community. “I have worked my entire career to uphold the law,†Fogleman said. “I have sought out positions that would teach me all aspects of law and give me well-rounded experience necessary to take on the diverse types of cases heard by the Supreme Court.†Fogleman has served as a circuit judge in the 2nd Judicial District for 14 years. Before that, he was a deputy prosecutor, a private practice attorney and city attorney for Marion. Fogleman told reporters later that he would recuse himself from any cases involving the slayings if he was elected. Learned a lot from trial In Jonesboro, Fogleman said his campaign was not about the WM3 case, but that he learned a lot during the 7-week trials. “I learned that the prosecutor takes the cases that come to him and that you do the best with what you have,†Fogleman said. “It also taught me a lot about myself and my family.†Fogleman said Misskelley’s trial in Corning lasted three weeks, and Baldwin’s and Echols’ trial in Jonesboro concluded after four weeks of testimony. “I was away from my family a lot back then,†Fogleman recalled. “Nancy (Fogleman’s wife) had to take care of our two teen-aged boys by herself.†Fogleman graduated with honors from the University of Arkansas School of Law at Fayetteville in 1981. Fogleman is also a 1978 graduate of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. He and his wife have two sons, John Jr. and Adam.
