Writer raises ‘respect’ issue

Print Article

To the Editor:

Am I the only one noticing the offensiveness in recent letters submitted by attorney friends of candidate Nick Wallace and the two retired judges?

It seems none of them can bring themselves to address the judge properly as “Judge” Estudillo.

Judge David Estudillo has been our Superior Court Judge for the past 13 months, yet throughout each of these letters, he is consistently referred to as “Mr. Estudillo.” Worse yet — Mr. Wallace has noticeably referred to him as “David” at various public forums.

These men, who clearly have a “club” mentality about our courts, want the public to listen to their opinions about what is best for the Superior Court — yet each of them is unable to extend normal professional courtesies to a sitting judge.

Why do you suppose they feel free to demean Judge Estudillo in this way?

If Mr. Wallace and his friends feel they can disrespect and demean a sitting judge who is not a member of their “club,” should we not be concerned that Mr. Wallace, if he were to ascend to the bench and unseat Judge Estudillo, would disrespect and demean others?

One of the things we teach our children is that “you get respect by being respectful.” The behavior of these lawyers and former judges is disrespectful. Judge Estudillo treats everyone with respect. He has earned my respect and my vote.
