A Tennessee general sessions court judge was reprimanded by the Court of the Judiciary for comments made on the bench and elsewhere that demeaned court employees. The judge referred to one employee with the last name of Hill as "Liar Hill." A second employee was called "Dora Dumb" or "Dumb Dora."The reprimand was an agreed disposition.
The judge's name is John Walton. So far as I can determine, the demeaning comments were not made in response to his being called John Boy. (Mike Frisch)
