Judge Christie Sell Has Set The Standard For Judicial Excellence - And Response

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Please vote for Christie Sell for Sessions Court judge on Thursday.  Judge Sell deserves your vote. For the past eight years she has set the standard for judicial excellence in thousands of cases from all manner of disputes and controversies that occur in our county.

Judge Sell has been firm when necessary, compassionate to those who deserve it, and fair to all. She treats witnesses, victims of crime, and those accused of a crime with decency and respect. Judge Sell gives a fair hearing to all litigants that appear in her courtroom. Most importantly she follows the law and fairly and impartially. 

Please join me in support by voting for Judge Christie Sell for Sessions Court this Thursday.

I have been a criminal lawyer for 23 years and I have seen many judges take the bench, but it has been a special privilege to watch Christie Sell quickly become a top-tier judge for Chattanooga and Hamilton County.   

There are many qualities that make a good judge but first among them is the courage to judge fairly—a much harder job than most image and a job that many judges never learn.  Judge Sell has the confidence of the prosecutors and defense lawyers alike because they trust her to make hard decisions without favor and honestly.   

Please return Christie Sell to the bench; our community got what we voted for last time and we will again.

Bone-Headed Logo

Why is the new state logo orange and white?  To me, that says that all Tennesseans are Volunteer fans. How about blue and gold (UTC) or black and gold (Vanderbilt)?  Don't assume all who live here are Volunteer followers. Sells our state short. Ken Maury (click for more)
