3 Indiana Judges Facing Ethics Charges for White Castle Brawl
:snippity: According to the police report, after a long night of bar hopping in downtown Indianapolis, the three judges attempted to enter an, ahem, "gentlemen's club" that was closed. They then went to a nearby White Castle.

While outside the "burger" joint, two men in a passing vehicle allegedly yelled something at the judges, which led to Bell responding with a raised middle finger. The vehicle stopped, the men got out, and a brawl ensued.

It ended with Adams shot in the stomach and Jacobs shot twice in the chest. Both spent time in the hospital and recovered.
:snippity:
All three judges, however, are all charged by the Judicial Qualifications Commission with multiple counts of misconduct, because "at no time did Bell, Adams or Jacobs attempt to move to another location to avoid further confrontation."

I get that, I just see lawyers do more egregious things regularly, with no retribution.

Montgomery v Risen comes to mind. My impression is this was not his first loose playing with the court in this case so he had hit the Judge's limit.

I think this guy is trying, very hard, to fill GIL's niche in the copyright/trademark ambulance chasing world. He definitely has a reputation, like GIL, and it isn't good.

Police in Pakistan say they are seeking to arrest PM Imran Khan's nephew for taking part in a violent protest at a hospital in which three patients died.
...

Mr Niazi was among several hundred lawyers who ransacked a city hospital in a dispute with doctors. Riot police had to be called in to restore order.
...

More than 80 lawyers were arrested over the hospital attack, and 46 have been remanded in custody. Lawyers called a nationwide strike on Friday, angry at police treatment of their colleagues in Lahore.
...
The lawyers had been protesting over the alleged mistreatment of some of their colleagues by hospital staff last month.
But the final trigger for the violence appears to have been a video posted on social media by a doctor on Tuesday night in which he poked fun at the lawyers.

Audio of the hearing is now available. It's a hearing I'm happy to get to experience from a couple of thousand miles and a couple of days removed from the epicenter.

Prediction: State Bar will take its time but eventually suspend him for 2 years.

Judge Otis D. Wright, the presiding judge in this case, was also the judge in the Prenda copyright troll case. He suffers no fools. Had Orly Taitz appeared before him rather than Judge Carter, she would be trimming nails in a beauty salon in Tustin today rather than still crapticing law.

My reaction was something like this:

:yikes:

Although I will confess to having a slight dislike of biglaw types as well, obviously Mr. Hook went waaaaaaaaaay too far, and should probably be preparing himself for the suspension he so richly deserves.

I think incandescent comes closer to describing the judge's mood. He doesn't seem to type to be forgiving of fools, in the judicial sense.

Considering the malpractice suit(s) he should soon be facing from his victimsformer clients, and the law firm he drug in to it without their knowledge or permission I 'd say his days of practicing law will soon be irrevocably over. He also out Orlyed Orly and his last hearing, to the hearing suspended, and got himself thrown out of the courtroom. Fun times.

It is also looking like the judge is not going to include the clients in with their attorney as they neither sanctioned nor knew what he was doing, and were in fact out of the country. They also too have NEW real (competent) attorneys representing them now.

FWIW, I think there are at least another round or two to go on this before it is all said and done.
