Bring integrity Back to Durham

I will be fair to all parties and persons before the court and base the court's decisions on the facts and law without inappropriate exparte communications. I will be impartial and fair to all who enter the court together with an independence to make an impartial, decisive and bias free decision.

For District Court Judge

I will exercise patience with all the parties and I will be respectful to all   who enter the court.  I will be attentive and have the proper judicial temperament with all matters before the court.  I will treat the judicial office with dignity at all times with a commitment to equal justice for all.
