Congratulations to Judge Byron Williams, Criminal District Court Section G, who took the bench for the first time this morning. As the newest CDC Judge, he’ll be presiding over one of the attic courtrooms (with Sections A, F, and L also playing a game of musical chairs). Judge Williams was apparently eager to get started, beginning Court this morning at 8:15 on the dot.
You can read more about Judge Williams’ investiture in this New Orleans Advocate article, and more about his background and experience at his campaign website.
Court Watch NOLA and our volunteers look forward to getting to know Judge Williams and his staff over the next several years. Welcome, your honor.
