Judge Jay Caraway is running for re-election to the Second Circuit Court of Appeal.
In 35 years as a lawyer, including 20 years also being a judge, the Republican resident of Bossier City has seen more than 6,000 legal disputes, with approximately 2,500 being appeals of criminal and civil judgments.
Judge Caraway has been recognized by our state for his strong ethical and academic values. He was selected by the state Supreme Court to sit on the Judiciary Ethics Commission, and was invited by the Louisiana State University Law School to be an adjunct professor.
Judge Caraway touts his time with the appellate court as a distinguishing qualification in this election. “As a lawyer, I dealt with major appellate cases, and argued before the appellate courts of this state and the U.S. 5th Circuit,” he said. “That experience, plus my on-going experience on the court prepares me for the next set of facts, for the next dispute that I will see as a judge; and working with other judges, we can reach the proper resolution under our law.”
Judge Caraway credits his roots in the North-Central Parishes of Louisiana as the life experience that prepared him for his public service as judge.
