Judge Paul W. Grimm

In an op-ed for Bloomberg Law published on Oct. 24, 2023, Judge Paul W. Grimm (ret.), director of the Bolch Judicial Institute of Duke Law, said that lawyers and bar associations must speak out when judges and the judiciary have been subjected to unfair and inaccurate attacks.

“The steady drumbeat of unjustified attacks against the judiciary and individual judges threatens the safety of judges and diminishes faith in judges and courts,” he writes. In response, Judge Grimm calls for members of the legal profession to defend judges “now, and with a renewed sense of urgency.”
