Throwback Thursday

25 years ago this month:

  • Accepting the recommendation of the Commission on Judicial Performance, the Mississippi Supreme Court removed from office a judge who had openly lived with a fugitive charged in Georgia with several drug-related felonies, allowed the fugitive to drive her car with a suspended license, actively participated in the felony case in Georgia, and married him after he was convicted; the Court also fined the judge the salary she had received since the date on which she had agreed to resign.  Commission on Judicial Performance v. Milling, 657 So. 2d 531 (Mississippi 1995).
  • Concurring in the determination of the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct, the New Jersey Supreme Court publicly reprimanded a part-time judge for permitting a fax transmission to be sent from his law office to the judge of another municipal court about a matter pending in that court.  In the Matter of Carton, 658 A.2d 1211 (New Jersey 1995).
  • Pursuant to a stipulation and agreement, the Washington State Commission on Judicial Conduct publicly admonished a part-time judge for delaying for approximately 13 months in deciding a small claims case and misplacing the file in his law offices.  In re the Matter of Linde, Stipulation and Agreement and Order of Admonishment (Washington State Commission on Judicial Conduct June 1, 1995).
