Family, Friends Gather to Remember Judge Moss

Family, friends and colleagues gathered last week to remember the life and public service of Cleveland City Judge Bill Moss, who died Monday. Moss, 76, had served as city judge for 38 years at the time of his death. Hundreds packed the County Commission Room of the Bradley County Courthouse to share stories of Moss’ service and friendships with the people of Cleveland, the Chattanoogan.com reports. People remembered Moss as a man of compassion and fairness on the bench. "I have often said that even when Bill had to fine or sentence someone from the bench, they left his courtroom knowing their particular case was handled…with dignity and respect," Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland said.
