A former Minnesota Tax Court chief judge (who is not admitted to practice in Minnesota) has been publicly censured by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
The court found that the judge violated the Code of Judicial Conduct
by failing to timely release opinions, falsely certifying compliance with Minnesota law, and falsely representing deadlines in court decisions.
The court's order was referred to the Wisconsin disciplinary counsel.
Further, the court will supervise any future application that the judge makes for Minnesota Bar admission. (Mike Frisch)
