Lauderdale's Diminutive Judge to Run Again?

Several comments in The Courthouse Forum concerning Lauderdale Circuit Court Judge Jimmy Sandlin have assured his detractors that the diminutive jurist will not be running for re-election in 2010; however, two sources that we consider to be extremely reliable tell us that Sandlin will indeed be seeking a second term. Sandlin originally ran against incumbent Larry Mack Smith on the platform of saving marriages and keeping families intact.

Since his election, Sandlin himself has been divorced by his wife of many years. Numerous comments concerning his current domestic situation may be found at this link. In the past we have published several blogs concerning Sandlin, including Judge Jimmy Sandlin and Judge Jimmy Sandlin & Ethics. While it's hard to unseat an incumbent in almost any election, Sandlin did so three years ago, and we believe the right candidate can easily defeat Jimmy Sandlin in 2010.
