APPEALS COURT JUDGE REPRIMANDED BY COMMISSION ON JUDICIAL CONDUCT

 

BOSTON, MA (March 19, 2004) -- The Commission on Judicial Conduct has today reprimanded (with some conditions) Appeals Court Justice Joseph A. Trainor for having operated a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol in February of 2003. Justice Trainor has successfully completed his continuance without a finding in the Dedham District Court and his criminal case has been dismissed. The Commission is therefore closing Complaint Number 2003-31 as Informally Adjusted, pursuant to MGL c.211C, section 8. Justice Trainor has agreed not to sit on any appeal involving a charge of operating under the influence until at least one year following the dismissal of his criminal case.
