I am writing to voice my strong support for Paul Scoggin in the upcoming primary for Hennepin County District Court Judge, Seat 43. This is an open seat with seven candidates.
As a trial attorney, I believe that judges need to be experienced and fair.
Paul has been a prosecutor in the Hennepin County Attorney's Office for nearly 30 years. I worked with Paul for 29 of those years and know him to be an outstanding trial attorney. He has been a leader in the office and in the legal community. It is a testament to Paul's skills and experience that he was appointed in recent years as an investigating magistrate and war crimes prosecutor in Kosovo, the West Bank, and Jordan.
I know Paul to have the intellect and temperament to be a thoughtful and fair judge.
I hope you will join me in voting for Paul on Tuesday, Aug. 12.
