Judicial candidate -- UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2007 at 8:23 AM

Ron Williams of Springdale, senior partner in the Rogers firm of Williams and Hutchinson and for 16 years a vice president and assistant general counsel at Wal-Mart, has announced his candidacy for the Court of Appeals seat held by the late Judge Terry Crabtree. His news release notes: "At Wal-Mart, he was responsible for all personal injury and employment litigation across the country." State Rep. Donna Hutchinson adds, "I know that Ron's judicial philosophy is in line with Arkansas."

Benton County, for sure.

UPDATE: Somehow, we have a feeling we might find more to our liking the judicial philosophy in Washington County. That's where you'll find another candidate for this seat, Bill Jones. He's a deputy prosecutor, military vet and has also been a public defender.

Also, a Fayetteville legal light tells me Courtney Henry (daughter-in-law of Morriss and Ann Henry), another Fayetteville lawyer with experience clerking on the court of appeals, may run for the seat.

The court seat covers Benton, Carroll, Crawford, Franklin, Johnson, Madison and  Washington Counties

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
