Bible Presented to Baker City Court

Judge White and Judge WilliamsNewly elected Baker (Louisiana) City Court Judge is pictured receiving a Court Presentation Bible for his court.  Judge-elect Kirk Williams enjoyed hearing the fascinating story of the Harlan Bible, named for its donor, Justice John Marshall Harlan, an admirable Supreme Court justice who served from 1877-1911.  Kirk Williams, Judge-elect of Baker City Court is pictured receiving a Court Presentation Bible as Judge Darrell White (Retired) holds replica of the original Harlan Bible bearing signatures of all U.S. Supreme Court justices since 1906.  As a result, the Baker City Court joins the growing list of courts that are replicating this venerable tradition.  Judge-elect Williams, a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School, was interested to learn how Retired Judges of America has been active in securing the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity by uniting retired and former judges to uphold principles enunciated in America’s “Organic Laws” (as so designated by Congress).  You can help the Retired Judges of America spread this tradition across America by contributing to this worthy (and tax-deductible) initiative.  And if you know of a judge (active or retired) who would like to have a Bible dedicated to his or her court, contact Judge Darrell White (Retired).
