Court of Appeals Judge 2nd District 2nd Division Forum

On Oct. 17, 2006, WBKO sat down with the candidates for Court of Appeals Judge 2nd District 2nd Division. The two attorneys are running for this is non-partisan post are Kelly Thompson from Bowling Green, Ky., and Dwight T. Lovan from Owensboro, Ky.

In this first segment each candidate had one minute to answer each of two questions, and one minute for closing remarks. A coin flip determined that the questions started with Lovan.

  • 1. What is the biggest problem facing Kentucky's Appellate Court System, and how would you fix it?

  • 2. There are a lot of pressures on the judiciary these days, some people even suggesting some judges try to legislate from the bench. How would you put aside these outside influences and look at each case on its own merits?
