10 vie for high state court

County and judge candidates air views

(Continued from Page 1)
Wayne County and Assistant
Wayne County prosecutor.
S W A L L O W, INhis
fourth year as judge in the 26th
Circuit, has come out even
more vehemently against the
present court, saying it has
"generated a disrespect for the
law" by overturning lower
court rulings on technicalities.
He also charges that the pre-
sent court is 'completely lack-
ing in judicial innovation."
The 43-year-old lifelong Al-
pena resident and former state
legislator, admits he has only
an 'outside shot", but stresses
that it makes no difference in)
his campaign.
On the other hand, Hurd's
campaign has been virtually
invisible. Although a Detroit
resident, the 36-year-old is now
living in Washington, D. C.,
where he is teaching and work-
ing on a doctorate at Potomac
Law School.
EVEN HIS WIFE JannetteI
admits that Hurd has attended
only "a few small affairs. He's
campaigmed very little," she
said. "He might be in next
week," she added.
Hurd, who started a private
practice two yearshago, believes'
thatcrime intMichigan can be
reduced by two-thirds within a
year if victimless crime laws
as well as comnlilsorv educa-
tion, minimum waee and child
labor laws are declared uncon-
stitutional. He also contends
that fines, instead of incarcer-
ation, should be emnhasized and
the lie detector should be ad-
missible in court.
The other minority party
candidate, Wells, 45. of South-
field has also conducteda lim-
ited campaign - a month ago
his own party's headquarters
in Ypsilanti were unaware that
Wells was their candidate.
WELLS'IN 1974 ran in the
Democratic primary for gov-
ernor, polling 100,000 votes, and
has had a private practice for
ten years. Though reluctantly
acknowledging his poor chanc-
es of winning, he notes that his
candidacy allows him to speak
out on what he sees .as the
issues.

"There is no certainty of con-
viction, let alone punishment in
this state," he maintains. To
solve this problem, he strongly
advocates the use of the lie-de-
tector, recently turned down by
the court.
In the three-man race for the
six-year-term, Zolton Ferency
will have no trouble getting
name recognition. Ferency has
almost become a fixture when
election time rolls around - he
ran unsuccessfully for governor
in 1974, for state Supreme Court
in 1972, and as Democratic can-
didate for governor - before
leaving the party - in 1966.
PRESENTLY a Michigan
State University professor, Fer-
ency has spent less time at-
tacking the present court then
espousing his own suggestions
for its improvement - pre-paid
legal insurance, the need to
"olng up loopholes" in the op-
eration of small claims court
and the importance of going to
arbitration instead of waiting
for months in the crowded court
doket.
Like Ferency, Moody has al-
so run unsuccessfully for the
State Snoreme Court, narrow-
lv losing by 11,000 votes in 1974.
Moody, who considers himself
"a shade left of center on njost'
matters but on human rights
and human affairs - a liberal,
period," emplhasizes his 11
years of experience as a circuit
iludge and 13 years as a trial;
lawyer.
The University and Law
School alummis as well as 1948
nresident of the student body
favors "presumptive sentenc-
ing" to give more consistency
in punishment, which is meting
ont a specific amount of pun-
ishmentset byathe legislature
unless there are aggravating
circumstances.
LINDEMER, who resigned his
post as a University. Regent up-
on his appointment to the bench,
considers himself a conservative
