If the Judge truly had a stroke, how was he able to continue to drive? One would think the stroke would cause an accident like SB Mom's father.
It just doesn't add up, and I'm sure Jack Fishman is not going to print anything derogatory in the Trib.
Roger, how can you be so sure of the Judge's supposed stature? It's complete opposite of the other person's. And usually when there is smoke there is fire. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out.

Yes, Sheila, my father's incident was a bona fide accident. In fact, it was several days before he could even remember what happened. It was on the front page of the Tribune when it happened and it was scary for all of us.

John sounds like most people who don't like anyone with authority. I am so sick of because you are a police officer, judge, lawyer, or whatever you are accused of special treatment. It happens, unfortunately to a FEW, not everybody in those positions are crooks. Last time I checked, we still have the priviledge-thank God- of voting these people out.........
Sorry to inform you, but this is a Federal Judge...you don't vote Federal Judges in and you can't vote them out...

William H. Inman is the epitome of justice and honor. He would have no more tried to leave the scene of an accident than a pig could fly. From the onset of this incident people who know Judge Inman knew that some cardiovascular incident must have occured for such a happening.
Are you Judge Ronnie Greer or AssistantDA Neil Smith?

The Morristown paper reported today the DA has anounced that no charges would be filed against Judge Inman in this case.

Well Well Well thats our great D.A. for you another case dropped by the wayside.
I mean when you butcher a dog, beat up on 4-5 officers and injure 2, destroy Govt property, then get off because you were not on your medication.(HELL I GUESS IF HE HAD KILLED SOMEONE OTHER THAN HIS POOR DOG) he would have walked.
At least get the Judge off the road, How long after this case blows over will he be back on the road.
Hey Barkley Bell (DA) I hope none of these problems hit to close to home for you, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO YOUR JOB. Remember election time

The two injured should now file their lawsuits against Judge Inman. Seems the DA isn't going to do anything to him, maybe another court of law will.

I think it should be that at a certain age, maybe 60years old, that we should be retested and road tested as well. I have seen many times at the first of the month when most older citizens get there checks that the older drivers have a hard time with driving.

It is common for those having "mini-strokes" or TIAs to have a period of amnesia and/or change in consciousness.

Do you realize how crowded it is already at the DOT Driver's office in Morristown? To call for yearly retesting would be more trouble than it is worth. More beauracacy and red tape to have to wade through. My thoughts would be that whenever one had to have a renewal on their liscense to be retested, written and driving, and any new medical conditions, i.e glasses, etc., listed on the new liscense.

Read the police reports sometimes. Not having a license doesn't seem to keep a LOT of people off the road.Neither does multiple DUI or driving without a license charges.
Judges aren't doing their jobs. Now let's see if THIS judge gets what he deserves.
I had a stroke in 96...had no function on my right side,couldn't speak. But never,at any time,was I unaware of what was happening around me. Hitting the guys might have been an accident...trying to leave the scene was NOT.
Rank has it's priviledges,as the say. When the very highest office in the land (you know who) can't set a good example (pardon me,sir) why should anyone else? FRom the very person who should be setting an example for all to see (GWB),who swore to uphold our fine constitution,we have gotten the message that you CAN do the crime and NOT do the time.
This is America. This is the greatest country in the world.At least it was when I was young.
The human brain is the most complex structure known to man and not all strokes are the same. It is invalid to assume that because you have had one, you know what it was like for the judge.

The statistics relating to age and traffic safely would put that age somewhere between 75 and 80. 60 year old drivers are statistically among the safest on the road.

The Judge's insurance should cover the medical bills.
