Shawn Phillips' guest column "Told you Lonnie Cox is a bad judge" (The Daily News, Feb. 1) says Cox is dishonest, corrupt, a bad judge and probably criminal. Wow. He is entitled to his opinion — but that does not make it true.

If the lawsuit was "frivolous," the trial court could have dismissed it with prejudice.

Personally, I feel the judges should control hiring of court administrators. Real issues — who controls hiring, firing and budget for court personnel — were present and appealed. Losing does not equal frivolity. As to why someone would show up in court knowing of the alleged "inappropriate relationship between Cox and Stevens," I can suggest three: avoid a default judgement, assert one's rights and ask for the judge to recuse himself.

I assume if Phillips knew of any corrupt consideration given for the bargain legal fee, he would gleefully provide it. I am willing to see what the district attorney and bar association have to say.

For the record, I do not know Cox or Stevens, or have legal matters before with them; however, I do know a hatchet job when I see one.
