EL RENO – Canadian County District Judge Jack McCurdy II was honored during a retirement reception Nov. 28 at the Canadian County Courthouse.
Judge McCurdy is retiring after 39 years in the legal profession, the last 15 as a Canadian County judge. He has been a Canadian County district judge since being elected in a landslide four years ago.
His longtime friend, Oklahoma City attorney Chris Box, called McCurdy a “lawyer’s judge.”
“He can show mercy when mercy is due, but he can also dish out punishment when punishment is due.”
Special Judge Khristan K. Strubhar will succeed McCurdy as district judge in January. El Reno attorney David Halley has been appointed as a new special judge to replace Strubhar.
