Jessica Ticktin Ousts Diana Lewis on Election Day

Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye…

Blasted by surveys that showed attorneys consistently gave her low marks for her courtroom demeanor, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Diana Lewis on Tuesday became the fourth county circuit judge in 30 years to be booted off the bench, losing to first-time candidate Jessica Ticktin.

“It’s surreal,” said Ticktin, who relentlessly criticized Lewis for her abrasive personality and her appellate record. “I never wanted to run a negative campaign but I felt it was important to bring out the truth.”
