Gasp: Louisville will have no black judges

Kentucky's largest county will be left with no black judges presiding in any of its trial courts after two African-American district judges retire in January.

The Commission on Racial Fairness is working on a resolution that points out the importance of diversity on the bench.

So blacks represent 19% of Jefferson County but what % of the Jefferson County lawyers are black? How about making sure you have the best candidate period for the job.
