Cornelius John Bolin, Jr., known as Neal Bolin (December 1, 1924 – July 2, 2007), was a Democratic state court judge in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Bolin was born to C. J. Bolin, Sr. (1887–1973), and the former Annie Walker (1895–1979) in Mansfield. The family moved to Shreveport, and Bolin graduated from C.E. Byrd High School in 1941. He served in the United States Navy during World War II. He received his legal degree in 1952 from Louisiana State University Law Center in Baton Rouge and practiced law in Shreveport for six years until he was appointed an assistant district attorney for Caddo Parish, a position that he held for eleven years. On August 17, 1968, Bolin was elected judge of the First Judicial District, Division "C" in Caddo Parish. He was re-elected unopposed until his retirement. During his tenure, he served twice as chief judge. After retirement, he served the court twice as a temporary judge.[1]

He was an active member of the American, Louisiana, and Shreveport bar associations, the American Legion, and Kiwanis International, having served as the club president in 1972.[1]

Bolin died in Shreveport and is interred at Forest Park East Cemetery,[1] alongside his wife of fifty-nine years, the former Madeline Morvant (October 23, 1926 – June 10, 2015). She was a native of Crowley in Acadia Parish and a graduate of the New Orleans Charity Hospital School of Nursing. The couple had six children: Madeline Anne Willhite and husband John (formerly Madeline Nance); John H. Bolin and wife Nicole; Adele Coleman and husband Richard (She was formerly married to Glenn Hartrick.); Jeanise Mulcahy and husband, Patrick; Robert Bolin (formerly married to Shelley Bolin), and Martin P. Bolin (since deceased), and eleven grandchildren.[2]

Chief District Court Judge Charles Scott, later the Caddo Parish district attorney who died in 2015, said that Bolin "was a good mentor to many of the judges of the courthouse. He was a good friend and a good family man. He served the community very well, and we are saddened by his death."
