They say it's tough work being a judge--which is why the Tallahassee Women Lawyers honored them Wednesday night. T.W.L. is an organization to promote the status of women in the legal community and establish a network of women in the legal profession. The organization's president says they are currently about 170 members strong.

Wednesday night's 26th annual event for the judiciary kicked off at 7:30 p.m. and featured local judges and honored guests such as Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and many others.

Kim Driggers is an attorney in Tallahassee, but she is also President of Tallahassee Women Lawyers. She said, "It was a good venue to get together to get to know judges on a more one on one basis. To see them in a different light rather than in their black robes in the court room. So the purpose is just to get to know them on a different level."

    Kim Driggers is a strong leader and a good lawyer. Good leaders delegate. The event was a hit. I didn't see in the article where Kim took credit for anything. She simply stated the purpose of the event. It sounds like somebody is jealous of Kim.

    I enjoyed the event. It was one of the best! However, Kim Driggers had nothing to do with it - another TWL member was responsible for the whole thing. Kim Driggers is taking credit for something that she she didn't do. The people that I know within the legal community have referred to Kim Driggers as a weak leader who delegates responsibiity instead of accepting it. Kudos to whoever actually put on the event!
