Leave With Pay

The New Hampshire Supreme Court suspended a superior court judge with pay as a result of ethics charges filed against the judge. The judge's husband had been disbarred. The judge is alleged to have participated in the creation of a family trust that was designed to avoid payment of costs associated with the bar discipline case. According to a press report, the judge had been the subject of an earlier complaint in which she had been accused of falling asleep while presiding over court proceedings. (Mike Frisch)
