To Kill a Mockingbird

At the end of chapter 9, Atticus tells Jack that Judge Taylor assigned the Robison case to Atticus. How might this impact the reader's impression of Atticus?

Sorry for the last time I asked this. It wasnt clear. I hope that this makes a little more sense.

This tells us that the Judge knew that Atticus was the only man for this job. Tom was not going to get a fair trial simply because of the fact that white Maycomb was racist. Atticus, however, gave Tom a fighting chance. Judge Taylor knew that Atticus was the only man who could get under the hate and appeal to people's humanity. I love the character of Atticus for this reason. When faced with my own moral conundrums I sometimes reflect on what Atticus might have done. Unfortunately I usually fall short of him.
