Abuse Of Discretion

A Nevada district court judge filed a motion to reduce child support payments in his own divorce case after he was defeated in his reelection bid. After the hearing on the motion, the judge "entered an order sealing the entire case file and sua sponte issued a gag order preventing all parties and attorneys from disclosing any documents or discussing any portion of the case." The wife appealed to the Nevada Supreme Court, which held that the judge had abused her discretion in issuing the sealing and gag orders. (Mike Frisch)
