Honorable Jason Worth
Judge Jason Worth used his HIV diagnosis as an opportunity to advance HIV/AIDS workers’ representation and rights.
On days when his illness prevented him from traveling, Judge Worth used a telephone equipped with a television to handle settlement conferences from home.
He explained that working as a judge was as crucial to staying alive as any precaution he could take to protect his health: “I believe that in order to survive one has to have goals. My goal is to be a judge with my medical condition.”
