The Association of Black Judges of Michigan presented a panel forum on Monday, Nov. 14, at the St. Regis Hotel in Detroit. The topic was “Removing the Mystery from the Judicial Appointment Process for Judges and Attorneys: How to seek and obtain the application, references, the interview, and ‘the call’ of congratulations from Lansing.” The forum was designed for all sitting judges interested in an appointment to another bench, and all active attorney members of the Wolverine Bar Association and the D. Augustus Straker Bar Association who aspire towards the bench.  Among those attending the event were (first row, seated, left to right) Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Karen Fort Hood, Straker President Kym Kinchen, ABJM President and Oakland County 46th District Court Judge Debra Nance, and Wayne County 36th District Court Judges Michael Wagner and Demetria Brue; along with (second row, left to right) Wayne County 36th District Court Judges Lynise Bryant-Weekes and Judge Wanda Evans; Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Qiana Lillard; Wayne County Probate Court Judge Judy Hartsfield; Wayne County 36th District Court Magistrate Judge Millicent Sherman; U.S. District Court Judge Linda Parker; Wayne County 36th District Court Judge Pennie Millender; and Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Craig Strong; in addition to (third row, left to right) U.S. District Court Judge Mark Randon; Trina Mengesha Brown; U.S. District Court Magistrate Judges Elizabeth Stafford and Stephanie Dawkins Davis; Justice Micheline Rawlins, Ontario Court of Justice; and U.S. District Court Chief Judge Denise Page Hood; as well as (fourth row, left to right) Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Ulysses Boykin; Genesee County 67th District Court Judge Herman Marable; Wayne County 36th District Court Judge Larry Williams Jr.; and Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Kurtis T.
