    Was the Judge a 'judge'? I guess you can decide for yourself after reading what was written in his obituary.

    Yes, he was a stand-in for the judge a few times. State lawyers could nominate a lawyer as a stand-in if the actual judge were not available. Many lawyers of the time could make the same claim by this standard. Rutherford was a lawyer. He may even have been a good lawyer (though without a law degree). But he was not a judge in the sense implied by the nickname.
