Suspension Without Pay

A Nebraska county judge was suspended for 120 days without pay for misconduct in three matters. The Nebraska Supreme Court affirmed findings that the judge had, in one matter, improperly involved himself in an ongoing criminal case against his nephew after the nephew had failed to appear for a court proceeding. The second matter involved ex parte contacts with a prosecutor. The third related to a profane and threatening message left on an attorney's answering machine when the judge thought that a matter should not have been scheduled in his court. (Mike Frisch)
