Judge Jay Caraway has qualified as a candidate for re-election to the Second Circuit Court of Appeal.
In 35 years as a lawyer, including 20 years also being a judge, the Republican resident of Bossier City has seen more than 6,000 legal disputes, with approximately 2,500 being appeals of criminal and civil judgments. He was also selected by the state Supreme Court to sit on the Judiciary Commission, and was invited by the Louisiana State University Law School to be an adjunct professor.
Judge Caraway touts his appellate court experience as a distinguishing qualification in this election. "I dealt with major appellate cases as a lawyer, and argued before the appellate courts of this state and the U.S. 5th Circuit," he said. "That cumulative experience prepares me for the next set of facts, for the next dispute that I will see as a judge; and working with other judges, we can reach the proper resolution under our law."
Judge Caraway credits his roots in the North-Central Parishes of Louisiana as the life experience that prepared him for his public service as judge.
This November 8 election covers the parishes of Bossier, Webster, Claiborne, Union, Lincoln, Caldwell, Bienville, Jackson and Winn.
