Private Interventions 

In this election season, virtually all political organizations with any standing (and some without) are taking pains to influence the outcome of judicial races, which are unique in Shelby County in that they are listed on the ballot without regard to partisan affiliation. The Republicans have their slate; the Democrats have theirs (adjusted once or twice); various bar organizations and civic groups have theirs, and so on, and so on. And there are some private individuals who have their two cents’ worth to throw in. The Flyer offers a few of these for your reading pleasure, starting with the red flag chunked onto the field of play by the oft controversial lawyer, Richard Fields. For more go to "Political Beat"
