    A letter should go to Ralph Hudgins our insurance commisssioner to complain about how the Insurance companies disrespect all lawyers, plaintiff and defense both!

    As a Georgia Bar member residing in the state, I do not support the concerns and sentiments expressed in the letter. It is okay to attack the President, but not the judiciary? Seems a bit hypocritical. Further, David Perdue is a fine man representing all the citizens of this state, and does express the sentiments of the majority of Georgians on political, governmental, and fiscal issues.

    As a Georgia Bar member residing out of state, I support the concerns and sentiments expressed in the letter.

    Richard Smith, Perdue is a die hard teapartier. He is nothing like Isakson and please don‘t confuse the two. It sullies Isakson, who is a good man.

    It must always remain possible to call biased or compromised judges to account.

  • Richard Smith

    I know of numerous people from all walks of life and different financial and social positions who have met with, and in many instances, been helped by Senator Isakson, especially Veterans. I don‘t personally know Senator Perdue, but I have no reason to believe he is any different. I am glad Mr. Culpepper acknowledged that he spoke only for himself; he certainly wasn‘t speaking for me, or many of the lawyers I know. There is room for disagreement among honorable people, which should be what a representative democracy is all about.

    Considering they will not meet with their constituents, I doubt they will even read the letter. "Party before the People" with those two.
