Five candidates are vying for Orleans Parish Civil District Court, Section J, to hold seat left vacant by Judge Paula A. Brown’s election to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal last spring.

The new judge on the civil court bench will hear family law cases exclusively to assist with the domestic docket caseload.
The candidates are Omar Mason, Edward “Ed” Morris, Morris Reed and D. Nicole Sheppard.
