Judge Logue was appointed to the Anchorage District Court in February of 2018. This is his first retention election. Judge Logue handles civil and criminal cases.
After conducting its performance review, the Judicial Council determined that Judge Logue met or exceeded performance standards on all criteria, including legal ability, integrity, impartiality/fairness, temperament, diligence, and administrative skills.
The Council also determined that Judge Logue met or exceeded educational requirements set by the Alaska Supreme Court.
Because Judge Logue met or exceeded all performance and professional development standards, the Alaska Judicial Council recommends a “yes” vote on retention in office.
