Camblos Apparently Disqualified for Judgeship

Canon 2, Section C of the Canons of Judicial Conduct for the Commonwealth of Virginia says:

A judge shall not hold membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion or national origin.

And in last week’s C-Ville Weekly, Meg McEvoy had an article about Debbie Wyatt that said:

In 1986, Wyatt was working on a rape case with co-counselors Dan Atkins and the bow-tied Jim Camblos, now the Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney and one-time president of the Red-Land Club.

The Red-Land Club, as is the theme of the article, is a professional organization for attorneys near Court Square that arbitrarily and invidiously excludes women. Thus Camblos, as a past president and presumed current member, is disqualified to hold the judgeship that he’s seeking.

Three snaps in Z formation.
