Howard Neff, Executive Director
Boston, MA — The Commission on Judicial Conduct has admonished a judge for treating a party who appeared before the judge discourteously and for otherwise behaving in a manner that was unbecoming a judicial officer and that brought the judicial office into disrepute, in violation of M.G.L. c. 211C, sec. 2(5).
Through this conduct, the judge failed to be patient, dignified, and courteous to a person appearing before the judge, in violation of Canon 3B(4) of the Code of Judicial Conduct then in effect.
The judge agreed to be monitored by the Commission and meet with a mentor judge for a period of one year from the effective date of the Agreed Disposition.
