He ruined my family when he sat as a temporary judge on the Lamoreaus "INJUSTICE" court. The reason he's dead at that age is because there is a GOD out there after all!! I hope he suffered tremendously but it would never come close to the unjust suffering he's caused us and others like us. None of the commentators here have a clue what injustice happens in in the juvenile courts, so please don't believe for a minute this man was a saint. He was former DA for heaven's sake and maybe you should all read the appeals taken from his juvenile cases before you decide he's a good man. I HOPE HE SUFFERS IN HELL! REST IN PISS JAMES P. MARION!


Wonderful man!! I sat on a jury for 8 weeks & he was the judge. So sad to hear he has passed.


Judge Marion was a good man, he will be missed
