The Jackson County Bar Association memorialized Circuit Court Judges Charles A. (“Chuck”) Nelson and Alexander C. Perlos on Sept. 9 in the Jackson County Courthouse courtroom of Chief Circuit Judge Thomas D. Wilson.

Nelson, who died Aug. 19, was a litigator for more than 30 years. Appointed to the bench in 1992 as a Circuit Court Judge in Jackson County, he served for 14 years and was instrumental in creating and serving as the first judge for the Jackson County Recovery Court.

Perlos, who died April 27,  was in private practice  until April of 1986 when he was appointed by then Governor Blanchard to the Circuit Court bench where he remained until his retirement in 2002.
