Divorced Spouse Not Domestic Partner

A hearing panel of the Ohio Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline has concluded that an Akron Municipal Court judge violated campaign ethics rules by accepting a $25,000 loan from her former husband.

The panel rejected the judge's argument that the loan was proper because the former husband was her "domestic partner."

The panel noted that the loan had been repaid and recommended that a cease and desist order be entered. (Mike Frisch)
