Like Father, Like Judge

The North Carolina Supreme Court censured a judge of the General Court of Justice for inappropriate conduct in connection with proceedings involving "a former client...with whom [the judge] had maintained both a 'father-like' and business relationship." The judge had ordered magistrates to set unsecured bonds in three matters and requested another judge to "go easy" in setting bond.  He also signed an ex parte order granting emergency temporary custody of three minor children of the former client. The judge stipulated to the misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
