Two Douglas County district judges will get more time on the bench.

Judges Michael Malone and Paula Martin easily won retention votes from voters on Tuesday.

Malone, a former Douglas County district attorney, received 34,043 yes votes, or 82 percent. Martin received 30,513 yes votes, or 73 percent.

Malone was originally appointed to the bench in 1982 and was chief judge in the county from 1990 to 2002.

Martin was originally appointed in 1994. In 2004 she faced an organized effort to not retain her, but Martin still won 63 percent support then from voters to return to the bench.

I'm sad to see that female-hating Paula is still on the bench. May all the little girl victims avoid having her prosecute them for the assaults they endured.

I do understand. I'm not literally talking about prosecution. Duh. It's just really sad knowing that your sister is still on the bench.

"...having her prosecute them for the assaults they endured."Looks like you're a little messed up there Confrontation. Prosecutors are prosecutors; judges aren't prosecutors. Guess you don't understand.

Confrontation, what you don't understand is that judges represent all of the people, not just you. Obviously, there was an instance when you and your family have felt that justice hasn't happened because you have an ax to grind.My opinion is based on multiple instances and a wide range of view; your opinion has a narrow focus. Sorry.
