Judge of the Court of Appeals, 5th Appellate District – Division 1

What is this race?

The Court of Appeals reviews the records of original court trials that occur in District or Circuit Court and decides whether or not that ruling was valid.

The judges are divided into panels of three to review and decide cases, with the majority determining the decision. The panels do not sit permanently in one location, but travel about the state to hear cases.
