For the first time since it was founded in 1985, the West Virginia Association for Justice named an Eastern Panhandle jurist as its Judge of the Year. David H. Sanders, chief judge of the 23 Circuit, which covers Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson counties, was presented with the honor Friday afternoon in his Jefferson County courtroom. About 50 people, including family members, friends, co-workers, members of the bar and local officials, attended the ceremony. Martinsburg Attorney D. Michael Burke, a member of the association's board of directors, presented a small plaque to Sanders, which read in part: “In recognition of his exemplary service to West Virginia's court system and the rule of law.” “For the life of me, I can't think of what remarkable thing I may have done to merit this kind of attention,” Sanders told the audience.
