Judicial Expletive Deleted

The Tennessee Court of the Judiciary  has issued a letter of public reprimand to a general sessions court judge for permitting an attorney who rented office space from him to appear as counsel in a matter before him. He also had "used an expletive wholly improper for a courtroom setting." The judge had admitted the facts, expressed immediate remorse and accepted responsibility for his actions.

The expletive at issue is not recounted in the decision. (Mike Frisch)
