Throwback Thursday

25 years ago this month:

  • Accepting a statement of circumstances and conditional agreement for discipline, the Indiana Supreme Court publicly reprimanded a judge for (1) obtaining an ex parte order granting him temporary custody of his son and (2) making off-color and outrageous comments implying that he would retaliate against his wife’s attorney. In the Matter of Sauce, 561 N.E.2d 751 (Indiana 1990).
  • Accepting an agreed statement and joint recommendation, the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct publicly admonished a judge who neglected more than 200 motor vehicle cases over 7 years and, in 1 case, despite continual prompting by the defendant’s attorney, failed to notify the defendant of the fine, delayed depositing the fine when paid, and failed to return the defendant’s driver’s license record. In the Matter of Ware, Determination (New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct October 25, 1990).
  • Adopting the recommendation of the Judicial Hearing Board, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals publicly admonished a magistrate for receiving campaign contributions without forming a committee. In the Matter Suder, 398 S.E.2d 162 (West Virginia 1990).
