The Judicial Ethics Forum (JEF)

An Academic Discussion of Judicial Ethics, Discipline & Disqualification

Ninth Circuit Judicial Council Investigation

Posted by kswisher on Wednesday, September, 10, 2008

The ABA Journal just ran a rather interesting, feature-length story concerning a judicial ethics inquiry involving Judge Manny Real (C.D. Cal.).  The Ninth Circuit Judicial Council is reportedly reviewing dozens of his cases for alleged errors of adjudication and problems of temperament.  For the full article, click here.  For my own views of whether bad criminal law adjudications warrant discipline (they can, and often do), click here.  (Because others undoubtedly know more about the judicial ethics implications of Judge Real’s saga — which apparently has a history of at least several years — please comment below for our collective benefit.)
