Editor: I read with deep interest that the Honorable James Fisher did not enjoy a full investiture ceremony. The first question that comes to mind is why?
Mr. Fisher is to be commended for the dignified way he conducted himself through the selection and interview process. There were some within the Loudoun legal community that failed to conduct themselves in a very professional manner. I am sure their behavior and antics were observed by members of the General Assembly. I believe, the local Loudoun Bar suffered an enormous hit as far as its credibility goes during the process. If the local Bar questions why its recommendations are not accepted by Richmond, its members only need to look at their behavior in this matter.
I welcome Mr. Fisher to the bench, the state legislators got it right by appointing him.
