2 Las Vegas Judges Facing Suspension Deny Impropriety
A Las Vegas judge facing suspension over allegations of misconduct has conceded before a state disciplinary panel that using profane language in court hallways could be inappropriate.
But the justice of the peace denied during a hearing Tuesday that she denigrated the dignity of the judiciary. The commission is considering suspending her and another justice of the peace over complaints that they interfered with hiring and firing court administrators.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the second judge called the proceedings a "witch hunt" and a waste of taxpayer money.
The state panel is promising a written decision in the coming days.
