The District Court is a high volume court. Because of this
high volume, District Court judges have a duty to control
the flow of each case. The judge must take the time to listen
to each person who appears in court and at the same time
make decisions promptly. I feel that I accomplish these
important tasks very capably.
My continued commitment as a judge, in both criminal and civil cases, is to perform my duties to the highest standards. I work hard to treat all parties fairly, decide justly, and use firmness tempered with compassion. Finally, I strive to maintain the highest degree of integrity in all my work as a judge. It is my earnest desire and hope to continue these important tasks for the people of Alaska.
