Salt Talks

The New York Commission on Judicial Conduct has censured a non-attorney town court justice for handling a matter in which his fellow justice was the complaining witness. The defendant was the co-judge's son.

The agreed facts indicate that the co-judge's son had a history of explosive behavior. The incident at issue was precipitated by the son's anger over the amount of salt on a prep[ared meal. The son went on a rampage and tried to locate a gun in the house. He was charged with a misdemeanor and sentenced to 30 days in jail. The judge also failed to have the proceeding recorded.
