As a litigant, one is more likely to be involved in court proceedings in family law, probate or civil matters (not so in criminal law, unless one is a criminal or a juror). This is why we need a civil lawyer for Yolo County judge, someone like Fredrick Cohen, who is a board-certified family law specialist, which the Yolo court has never had.
The fact that all Yolo judges are promoting one of their own, is reason enough to vote for Cohen. (Are these judges, just packing the court?) Actually, all four candidates are well-qualified, but Cohen would be the better choice.
