Our issue begins with Judge Procter Hug, Jr.’s thoughts on judicial independence under pressure. We reprint the remarks he gave as the featured speaker at the American Judges Association’s annual educational conference in October 2001. Judge Hug’s comments, as well as those of AJA president Bonnie Sudderth in her president’s column, deal with issues faced by judges in times of crisis, including in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States.
