John Judge (1948 – 2014) was a respected researcher, writer, public speaker, and community organizer. He was a co-founder of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA), and organized COPA’s annual JFK conference held each year in Dallas, Texas. Judge was an early advocate for the creation of the Assassination Records Review Board. He continued to campaign for the de-classification and full-disclosure of Kennedy and King assassination records still being withheld by the U.S. federal government.
“What’s more important is the principle that this public information belongs to us, the people of the United States and not to some secret government or intelligence network or any president or any Congress who are merely hired by us to do our bidding.” — John Judge
