2 Las Vegas Judges Offer Defenses In Misconduct Hearing
Attorneys defending two Las Vegas judges accused of mistreating court administrative personnel told a state disciplinary panel that the allegations stem from employee grievances, not actions in a courtroom.
The lawyers told the judicial discipline commission that the two justices of the peace are no threat to the public or to the administration of justice.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that a commission prosecutor alleged a "pattern of recurring misconduct." The judges could face suspension. Their hearing continues Tuesday.
