Judge suspended for being 'too rude'

Posted by Unknown | Mar 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

The State Supreme Court ruled that a judge in King County should be suspended for being too rude while serving on the bench. The woman's original suspension was recommended to be 90-days, but it has been reduced to five days without pay.

District Court Judge Judy Eiler was censured by the Judicial Conduct Commission after they said that her behavior in the court room was too rude. The commissioner found that the judge called people names, cut them off before they were done speaking, and did not let defendants show evidence.

The court ruled that the judge violated the judicial cannon that states that judges should show courtesy while on the bench. Three other violations cited by the commissioner were thrown out. This November, Judge Eiler has an opponent running against her, prosecutor Susan Mahoney.
