When I learned that Raag Singhal was appointed to the Broward Circuit Court bench last month, I thought to myself, “now that’s going to be one great judge.” I remember having some cases with Raag when I was a prosecutor in Broward County, and I have to say that he was always a pleasure to deal with. He was everything prosecutors want an opposing criminal defense lawyer to be: professional, courteous, reasonable, thoughtful, and just an all-around great guy. I have no doubt that Judge Singhal will display all those attributes as he presides over the many cases that will be assigned to him. Congratulations, Judge Singhal!
For those of you who are interested, Judge Singhal’s investiture will be held at 1:15 pm on January 20, 2012, in the Jury Assembly Room of the Broward County Courthouse. A link to the Broward County Barrister, which contains the announcement for Judge Singhal’s investiture on page 31, can be found here.
