Update on the story of the judge and prosecutor who were disciplined for engaging in a personal relationship during trial
About two weeks ago I posted a note about a judge in Florida who was disbarred because, while serving as the presiding judge in a capital first-degree murder case, the judge commenced a significant emotional relationship with the lead prosecutor in the case. The prosecutor, on the other hand, was only suspended for two years. There is more information on the story here and here.
