Retired 12th JDC Judge James N. Lee

Retired 12th JDC Judge James N. Lee, 90, died Sunday, August 3, 2014. Judge Lee graduated from Louisiana College in 1943 and went on to serve in the U.S. Army during World War II. Upon returning home, he attended the Louisiana State University School of Law, earning his LLB degree in 1948, starting his law practice in Bunkie shortly afterwards. In 1961, after having worked with the legislature to establish Bunkie City Court, Judge Lee was elected that court’s first judge. In 1979 Judge Lee was elected to the 12th JDC, where he served until his retirement in 1985. In 2011, the City Council and Mayor of Bunkie honored Judge Lee for his efforts in founding and serving on the city court by re-naming Pecan St. “Judge Lee Oaks.” Judge Lee was a member of the Bunkie Masonic Lodge, and was a Shriner. He also served on the board of the Avoyelles Trust and Savings Bank.
