Bagneris is expected to be a formidable candidate to take on Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Bagneris, 63, was first elected to the bench on October 16, 1993.  He began his public service under Mayor Ernest N. “Dutch” Morial where he served as Executive Counsel to the Mayor.  Judge Bagneris began his legal career at the law firm of Fine and Waltzer, and rose to partner in the firm Fine, Waltzer and Bagneris.

A graduate of St. Augustine High School and Yale University, Bagneris studied history at the Ivy League school and earned a double major Bachelor of Arts degree.  He completed his legal training at Tulane’s School of Law in 1975.
