Dear _______ (name):

	Your appreciation gift regarding the result of the
recent court decision was very thoughtful.

	However, I must decline your kind offer.

	As a civil court judge, I work very hard at 
maintaining an image of impartiality.  Accepting gifts
could very well taint that image.

	I do appreciate your kind gesture.

					Cordially yours,
