Judge, Court of Appeal 5th Circuit, 2nd Dist., Division A

PHOTO: 1-Judge Jude G. Gravois (1).jpg

Name: Jude G. Gravois

Town of Residence: I am a native and lifelong resident of Vacherie, Louisiana.

Date of Birth: I was born on December 13, 1953 (66 years old). The term of office is 10 years. The law is clear that “[a] judge who attains 70 years of age while serving a term of office shall be allowed to complete that term of office.” La. Const. Art. 5, Section 23. If re-elected, I fully intend to complete my 10-year term of office.

Married/Children/Family: I have been married for 43-plus years to Sonia Steib Gravois, also a native of Vacherie, Louisiana. We are the parents of two children and the grandparents of five grandchildren, all of whom live in South Louisiana.

Political Affiliation: Democrat

Profession: Attorney/appellate court judge. I have more than thirty years’ experience as a full-time practicing attorney in a very diverse solo practice, plus more than 11 years’ experience as an appellate court judge on the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal.

What makes you an effective leader? I feel that I am a natural-born leader, possibly because I understand people and life. With all of the experience I have as a practicing attorney and as an appellate court judge, I easily understand what needs to be done and how it needs to be done. I enjoy teaching others about the law and life, and leading them to follow my way of thinking, which is to always do what’s fair and what’s right.

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? If re-elected, I will continue to: 1) fairly, honestly, and completely review all facts, law, and issues involved in each case; 2) always keep an open mind and not make final decisions in any case until I have fully reviewed everything properly presented in each matter; and 3) make decisions that are impartial and without bias and are based strictly on the law and the facts applicable to the case.

What sets you apart from the other candidates? Purely and simply, experience. I have more than thirty years’ experience as a full-time practicing attorney in a very diverse solo practice, plus more than eleven years’ experience as an appellate court judge, in which I have handled more than 3,250 appellate matters, and authored more than 350 full appellate opinions and more than 700 writ dispositions. My decisions are always based strictly on the law and the facts applicable to the case.

Name: Sharrolyn Jackson Miles

 

Town of Residence: LaPlace, LA

 

Date of Birth: June 22, 1977

 

Married/Children/Family: Sharrolyn has five children: Akira (21), Elijah (17), Katelynn (13), Kiersten (9), and Jackson (6).  She also has two stepsons, Eli and Jabari. Although recently separated from her longtime husband, Eli Miles, they continue to co-parent effectively and raise their children as a team.  Sharrolyn’s mother, Sandra Jackson, is retired school teacher, and her father, Isaac Jackson, Jr., a recent candidate for Attorney General.  She credits both with her passion for learning and the law.

 

Political Affiliation: Democrat

 

Profession: Sharrolyn has over 16 years of experience as an assistant district attorney for St. John, a code enforcement hearing officer, a corporate defense attorney, an appellate law clerk, and as a solo practitoner.

 

What makes you an effective leader? Three things that make me effective as a leader are my passion, my determination to do the grind work and put in the long hours with my team, and my willingness to listen and take advice from others.  Another thing that makes me an effective leader is my faith, which helps me to be courageous and to push through the obstacles and challenges that will automatically come when you are trying to make an impact.

 

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? I will make sure my division operates with transparency and that attention to detail is given to every single case that comes through the division.  I will make sure that in every case my pen touches, all litigants — win or lose — are confident that their voice was heard and taken seriously.  I will work with the local schools, homeschool groups and churches to create hands on learning opportunities for students learning about the judicial system.

 

What sets you apart from the other candidates? I decided to run because while working for the Fourth Circuit I noticed that diversity of thought, opinions, and experiences seemed to be lacking in many decisions rendered by the Fifth Circuit.  I am much younger that the judges on the 5th Circuit;  I am from a different generation, a xennial; and my peers and I have had life experiences that differ dramatically from the judges currently serving.  I will be a long-awaited fresh voice.

 

Name: Robert J. Snyder, Jr.

Town of Residence: Reserve, LA, St. John Parish

Date of Birth: December 13, 1972

Married/Children/Family: Single. Extensive family throughout the entire River Parishes. The River Parishes has been home for our extended family for many generations.

Political Affiliation: Democrat

Profession: Attorney/Justice of the Peace

What makes you an effective leader? My ability to listen to both sides of a debatable position. Giving each party equal opportunity to present their case and argument. Ruling only based upon the law and evidence in the record, regardless of what my personal feelings may or may not be. The very fact that I mostly deal with judicial cases that have self represented litigants has taught me patience and how to treat a litigant that may or may not understand the law and the legal system. Also, my independence from huge campaign contributions makes me be able to issue a judgment that is fair and honest. I am not beholden to attorneys’ that have given huge campaign contributions.

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? My first priority would be to move the fifth circuit court of appeals sub-circuit back to Laplace, where it was moved from about 10 years ago. I will also maintain an office in St. James Parish.
I already have a judicial office in St. John Parish and a law office in St. James Parish. Therefore, I represent both parishes equally. My second priority will be to bring more transparency to the fifth circuit court of appeals courthouse located in Gretna. I would like the oral arguments recorded in order for the judiciary commission of Louisiana to step in and retrieve those recordings and discipline judges on that court of appeals if the need arises. My third priority would be to serve with the correct judicial temperament for the next 20 years without reaching the mandatory retirement age within the first few years of a 10-year term.

What sets you apart from the other candidates? The thing that sets me apart the most is that I am the only candidate who maintains a judicial office in St. John Parish and a legal office in St. James Parish. I have 30 years of combined legal, law enforcement and judicial experience. I am ready to serve both parishes for the next 20 years with the correct judicial temperament. As a member of the judiciary, I have never used the threat of sanctions against self-represented litigants. I patiently explain the process to those litigants, and always rule with the correct judicial temperament. I never have and never will violate my oath of office.

What sets you apart from the other candidate? I am ready to take the bench and, on day one, render decisions based on the law, in criminal, civil, juvenile, 4D and traffic matters.  I understand the administrative and judicial functions of the Court in light of my past service as a law clerk for Division B and my extensive practice in all areas over which a court of general jurisdiction presides.  I have an established record of serving St. John the Baptist Parish.  For the past four years, I hosted “What’s the Law?” and will continue to provide this service to the community upon taking the bench.  I have an established record of building relationships and formalizing partnerships with stakeholders in juvenile justice reform and achieving measurable, affirmative results in this area.  I love the law, and I love St. John the Baptist Parish!

This experience has prepared me to preside as judge over a large range of issues. Also, as a prosecutor, I have handled a large range of criminal matters ranging from minor juvenile offenses to the most serious adult felonies. It is this combination of experience that I feel sets me apart from the other candidates.
