TWO Superior Court Judges Disciplined for Ethnic Bias on the Same Day!

[03/09/10 – 9:57 am] Yesterday, the Supreme Court authorized the release of two judicial disciplinary orders that contained reprimands for two judges of the Superior Court. In both cases, In re Citta and In re Convery, the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct (ACJC) found that comments made by the judges in open court had the clear capacity to demonstrate judicial bias based upon ethnicity. Each of the judges waived his right to a hearing before the Supreme Court and accepted the factual findings, conclusion of law and recommended discipline set forth in the ACJC presentments.
