Honorable Robert L. Lowrey

Retention year: 2006
Recommendation: Retain

The Fourth Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance, by a unanimous 10 to 0 vote of all members, recommends Judge Robert L. Lowrey BE RETAINED.

Judge Lowrey was appointed to the District Court bench in August 2003, and assumed his position in January 2004. Judge Lowrey graduated in 1974 from the United States Air Force Academy. During his five years of active military duty, Judge Lowrey earned a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Georgia College in 1978. He subsequently graduated from the University of Colorado Law School in 1981.

Judge Lowrey was a general practitioner from May 1982 until his appointment. His practice was in the areas of criminal defense, domestic relations, and civil litigation. At this time, Judge Lowrey’s assigned workload consists of civil and criminal cases.

The Commission considered written evaluations from attorneys and non-attorneys; a self-evaluation completed by Judge Lowrey, performed courtroom observations, and conducted both a personal interview with the Judge and a public hearing. Written survey results from 132 respondents indicated that 95% of attorneys strongly or somewhat recommended retention. Surveys from non-attorneys resulted in 96% strongly or somewhat in favor of retention.
