    without a license? Had she offered the copy of the case to an attorney, would that have been ok? Just asking.

    •  The guy didn't have an attorney. (5+ / 0-)

      Which is also the judge's fault, no?

      I can't speak on the practicing law without a license issue, but I can wax poetic on anal retentiveness of some judges.  Well...Maybe not so poetic.  And maybe more waning than waxing.

      •  It was a publicly available document. (8+ / 0-)

        Anybody had access to it, if they knew it existed.  All she did was point the man's sister in the right direction.  An action that it was perfectly legal to do as a private citizen.  But apparently you have to give up your free speech rights, your sense of justice, and your brain if you work for this judge.

        Did you hear the one about the judge who repeatedly use a penis pump behind his bench while hearing a case of a murdered child?

        Wtf is this country coming to??

        •  Looks like the judge wanted the guy in jail. (0+ / 0-)

          Guilty or not.

          He may have had a long beef with the employee for undermining his powers. Stuff like that typically doesn't happen once. Maybe he finally had enough on her to get rid of her?

          Wouldn't it be great to talk with her over coffee? I bet she's got some great stories.
