The Tennessee Court of the Judiciary has filed charges against a judge of the Shelby County General Sessions Court.
The complaint notes that an attorney who practices in the county had filed a complaint against the judge, which is attached to the charges here.
The allegation is that the judge violated the Code of Judicial Conduct by filing a bar complaint against the attorney "in retaliation" for the complaint against him and, further, asking the Board of Professional Responsibility to investigate another attorney listed as a witness in the complaint against him.
The bar complaint filed by the judge was dismissed. (Mike Frisch)
