New Circuit Court Judge Mike Pemberton has yet to be fitted for a robe, but don’t expect him to take the bench this week without the traditional judge’s garb.
“I’ve been so busy, but I’m going to wear my father-in-law’s until I have time,” he said.
Pemberton’s father-in-law is retired judge James “Buddy” Scott. They can share the robe now after Pemberton’s swearing-in on Sunday.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Pemberton said, about serving as judge.
