Judge Fuller Out.

I think this was wise.

The judge presiding over the case of accused courthouse shooter Brian Nichols says he is stepping down from the case.

Superior Court Judge Hilton Fuller announced his decision in a letter to Doris Downs, the chief judge for Fulton County Superior Court.

He cited recent media reports referring to a quote in a magazine article attributed to him in which he allegedly asserted that Brian Nichols was guilty. The article by Jeffrey Toobin appeared in the New Yorker.

He was in a difficult and thankless job, but I still think he could have handled it better anyway.

    Erick, I think you are being too kind to Fuller. He was wholly incompetent from the beginning in the finest traditions of Lance Ito. He let the parties to the case run his courtroom. Absolutely pathetic. Good riddance.

    Further, what was he doing even granting an interview in the first place? What a boob.

    Oh, and on a side note, on Monday while walking out of the Fulton County Courthouse, I had to point out to a Deputy that a person had just walked in the exit without going through a metal detector. No one had noticed.

    Well done, yet again, to Sheriff Freeman’s staff….
