Idaho Supreme Court Justice Jim Jones, who is unopposed for re-election this year, has issued a two-page statement responding to claims made by another judicial candidate, state District Judge John Bradbury, in Bradbury’s campaign against state Supreme Court Justice Roger Burdick.
“The candidate’s materials make inaccurate accusations against the Idaho judiciary,” Jones says in the statement. “As a member of the court, it is appropriate to address these misstatements because they cast the Idaho judiciary in a false light. A candidate for judicial office may put forth whatever proposals he may wish to improve the judicial system, but has no right to make unfounded claims that target the courts.” You can read Jones’ full statement here and see Bradbury’s campaign Web site here.
