Welcome to the bench, Judge Tod Young
With the appointment of Nathan Tod Young to the District Court Bench, the lawyers and litigants who will appear before him will find someone who is respectful to the rule of law, and who will not base his decisions on personal beliefs not found in those rules.
They can expect to be treated with dignity and patience by a judge who appreciates humility over power, and respect for all citizens no matter who they are. Douglas County is lucky to have a real change in such an important position.
Michael J. Roeser is a Zephyr Cove attorney and a former Douglas County public defender.
