Throwback Thursday

25 years ago this month:

  • Accepting the recommendation of the Committee on Judicial Conduct, the New Hampshire Supreme Court suspended for 6 months without pay and publicly censured a judge for calling a police officer he knew personally after the officer had ticketed the judge’s brother; the Court conditioned the judge’s reinstatement on his completion of a comprehensive judicial ethics course.  In re Snow, 674 A.2d 573 (New Hampshire 1996).
  • Pursuant to a stipulation, the Washington State Commission on Judicial Conduct publicly admonished a judge for appearing on behalf of his sister-in-law at a motion hearing before a family law commissioner during regular court hours and at the courthouse in which he performed his judicial duties; the judge also agreed to attend a judicial ethics course.  In re Chow, Stipulation and Order of Admonishment (Washington State Commission on Judicial Conduct February 2, 1996).
