Judicial Misconduct: Bully judges

Bully judge.

A bully judge is a judge who, behind the scenes, either through force of personality or other technique, leans on other judges and tells them how to rule on their cases.  Bully judges come in all shapes and sizes.

 

The foundation of the justice system is that each judge rules on his or her own case.  Bully judges are a fixture in the justice system.  But that doesn’t mean it is right.  For the justice system to move into balance, these bully judges must be identified, and called out.
