I want people who come before me in court to know that I heard them, listened to them and applied the law fairly.” Jacobs added, “A judge must leave their biases at the door. It does not matter what you think. Only the facts, the law and the Constitution matter when rendering a decision. Everyone needs to be heard and have their day in court.”
Jacobs added, “A judge must uphold the Constitution. It does not matter what you look like, and even if we do not agree, I will apply the law to the facts and give everyone a fair shot. You may not like the outcome, but you can be sure that you received a fair shot. I will not prejudge. I will listen and apply the law.”
