Support Dax Lopez
State of Play: Judge Dax Lopez is on a short list of Judges eligible to be appointed to the Stone Mountain Judicial Court by Governor Brian Kemp. In 2016, Judge Lopez was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia by President Obama. Unfortunately, extreme right-wing and anti-immigrant groups were successful in derailing Judge Lopez’ nomination by painting him as an “extremist anti-borders judge” for his prior service on the board of a Latino advocacy group. These same groups have begun to attack Judge Dax Lopez' 2019 nomination and are successfully encouraging anti-immigrant activists to write letters against his nomination.

In response, we are asking community leaders that know and support Judge Dax Lopez to write their own letters of support or to sign-on to the letter below using this google form. Please sign-on by COB Friday, May 17th

Sign-On Letter Text
Honorable Governor Brian Kemp,

Thank you for considering Judge Dax Lopez for the Stone Mountain Circuit Superior Court judgeship. We are excited for him to receive a full and fair vetting process based on his professional and judicial record, however, it has come to to our attention that extreme political groups are attempting to derail Judge Lopez’ nomination with political attacks.

Judge Dax Lopez has served the citizens of Dekalb County since 2010 with a commitment to following the law and ensuring justice for all. Additionally, Lopez has served as an advisor and mentor to countless organizations, students, lawyers, and Latino leaders throughout the state. However, his community involvement has never strayed into “judicial activism” or affected his professionalism in any matter.. His judicial record reflects fairness, efficiency, and a fierce fidelity for the law as it is. This is why his detractors are not able to point to that record as a fault of Judge Lopez and instead resort to political attacks.

We, the undersigned Georgians and community (add faith, business, education, etc.) leaders are writing to support Judge Dax Lopez for a fair vetting process through your administration.
