    Very unfortunate. There was no mention at any work session regarding the candidates applying for municipal judge. The city council did announce they were looking for candidates and announced the judge appointment. More of the problem as I understand it: 1) The Assistant Municipal Judge does not reside in Scottsboro, according to other Scottsboro attorneys. 2) Did the local bar approve or make recommendations regarding the Municipal Judge or the Assistant Municipal Judge? 3) Was the Municipal Judge or the Assistant Municipal Judge vetted prior to their appointments? 4) The City Council failed in their responsibility to the public regarding due diligence in their appointment of the Municipal Judge and Assistant Municipal Judge.
