Thank you Franklin County for Electing Me Judge in the Tenth District Court of Appeals!



 Voters often ask what my judicial philosophy is. When I think of this question, I think of Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm and her quote "Unbossed and Unbought". It is my philosophy that a judge should not be swayed by public opinion nor swayed by campaign contributions. When I make decisions, first, I look to the legislative intent when the legislation was introduced. In this world we have to consider that legislation oftentimes has unintended consequences and impacts our constituency far differently than the intent. However, the judicial branch is to interpret the legislation, not write legislation.  And deciding conflicts between courts is the job of a superior court. Judicial decisions must be fair, well-reasoned and written in language that the ordinary reader can understand. We do not write opinions for lawyers but, opinions are written for the parties they represent. Service is the rent we pay for being! I want to continue to serve you --  Judge Terri Jamison

Happy President's Day

The origin of Presidents’ Day lies in the 1880s, when the birthday of President George Washington—commander of the Continental Army during the  American Revolution and the first president of the United States—was first celebrated as a federal holiday. George Washington’s birthday, February 22nd, and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, February 12th, were combined to become known as President’s Day when the holiday was moved to Monday and unified. This year, we celebrate President’s Day with new leadership’s commitment to unify the country with a diverse staff and cabinet that reflects our multi-cultural nation.
