New Scholarship: Richmond on Bench Bullies

Posted by kswisher on Friday, August, 9, 2013

Doug Richmond recently wrote an interesting article (1) summarizing several striking instances of judges bullying lawyers (by, e.g., subjecting the lawyers to public ridicule or mean-spirited jokes) and (2) explaining why that bullying violates the Code of Judicial Conduct and is otherwise improper.

See Douglas R. Richmond, Bullies on the Bench, 72 La. L. Rev. 325 (2012).
