I was a little surprised at this, until I read that he has been on the bench for nine years already.

Wondering if there is something wrong with his health. If not why couldn't he just fulfill his obligation as judge until spring? Ralph couldn't get elected judge but I'd be surprised if he wasn't trying to be the "interim" judge for 6 months until the election.
