Skip to comments.Judge: Daniel Cameron has enough experience to serve as Kentucky attorney general
Posted on 10/10/2019 6:23:52 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
Daniel Cameron, the Republican nominee for Kentucky attorney general, won a lawsuit Thursday that challenged his eligibility to serve if he is elected Nov. 5 because of his limited years of experience. An appeal is expected.
...in his decision, Jefferson Circuit Judge Barry Willett said Kentucky courts consider the practice of law to mean a licensed attorney who offers legal counsel, a definition that would include Cameron while he worked as a clerk. In 1995, courts made a similar ruling in favor of Democrat Ben Chandler, then running for attorney general, and allowed him to count his four years as state auditor toward his eight required years as a practicing attorney, Willett said.

In any event, look at how this opening paragraph was written - clearly expecting to write this as him losing and just changed a few words around.
This lawsuit was embarrassingly ridiculous - arguing that clerking as an attorney for a US District Judge did not count as legal experience. They were not able to get a win even with forum shopping.
What nonsense to begin with.
The dems are like those little bitches who would go to the teacher and squeal on everyone.
Or a prisoner who squeals like a pig.
They don’t get what they want and they run to the courts and the judge and hide behind their skirts.
Makes me sick.
Don’t the voter decide who’s qualified and who isn’t?
Yes. But the elites hate that limit.
There is a minimum constitutional eligibility of 8 years of legal experience as an attorney in order to run. This lawsuit was arguing that Daniel Cameron’s time as a attorney working for a Federal judge should not count as legal experience as an attorney because he was not representing clients directly. By that definition, the judge presiding over this case himself would not be qualified.
Glad this was swiftly dismissed. Now Cameron can crush Stumpy like a cockroach.
In 1995, courts made a similar ruling in favor of Democrat Ben Chandler, then running for attorney general, and allowed him to count his four years as state auditor toward his eight required years as a practicing attorney, Willett said.
He didn’t have much choice with this precedent.
Lawsuit was filed by a former Union leader...most likely a Democrat, who was trying to get Cameron disqualified. The 1995 case to allow a Democrat candidate to use his time as a law clerk is precedence, but libs can’t help themselves trying to get the rules changed to suit their needs. The article says this will probably be appealed. Wasted time in my estimation.
There are attorneys who never do anything but research and never directly represent clients.
I only saw Cameron on TV once, but he seems to be a mature and poised young man.
God protect our Black conservatives — and let all African-Americans finally see how cruelly they have been exploited by the RATs.
He’s not out of the woods yet. There are enough of Stumpy’s friends on the appeals court and supreme court to still rule the other way.
