Father's Day

The Alabama Court of the Judiciary has reprimanded and censured a judge who dismissed a speeding ticket issued to his son.

The son was pulled over for exceeding the speed limit by 15 miles per hour.

The judge dismissed the ticket outside the regular court processes without notice to the prosecutors or the court presence of the defendant.

The court called the judge's actions a "serious violation" that "strikes at the heart" of the proper administration of equal justice. (Mike Frisch)
