Counsel's Corner: Judge's Ethics
(WENY) -- In this week's edition, we are exploring the topic of judges and ethics. This comes following a situation out of Indiana in which three judges were involved in a shots fired incident outside a White Castle after a night of drinking.
One female judge reportedly raised her middle finger at two men who yelled something from an SUV. The two men then allegedly became involved in a fight outside a White Castle with two of her fellow judges, according to ethics complaints filed Friday against all three judges.
The judge accused of raising her finger is Sabrina Bell of Crawford County, and the judges accused of fighting with the two men are Andrew Adams and Bradley Jacobs of Clark County. Adams and Jacobs were shot and seriously injured in the confrontation.
What standards are judges required to be held, both legally and in the public? Ziff Law Firm Attorney Adam Gee weighs in on this case.
