    Jim Turner is an experienced labor and employment lawyer who was elected to a state circuit court judgeship. He was removed from the bench after grievances were filed against him. He is a capable lawyer but in light of his removal I have to question his ethics.

    I have great trepidation in reviewing, Jim. I consider him a friend; however, as you are undoubtedly aware, he was recently removed from the bench for improper judicial conduct both before and after his election. He was also suspended from practice last month. Until those events, I would have rated Jim as meeting the high ethical standards required and as having much better judgment and ability to communicate.
