In The Home Of the Father

A Tennessee circuit court judge is the subject of recently-filed charges filed by Disciplinary Counsel with the Court of the Judiciary.

The charges allege that the judge was responsible for a matter involving post divorce custody and visitation rights. It is further alleged that

...[the judge] undertook an independent investigation of the conditions present at the residence of the father, by making a personal visit to the residence of the father, inspecting the home of the father, and later utilizing her personal observations in making rulings and referring to matters concerning parenting issues.
