  cbs2.com - Judge Admonished For Misusing Judicial Stationery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The judge planned to put the trailer in a building he was having constructed, but the project was beset by delays, according to his letter.
The panel sent an advisory letter to the judge at that time and said his judicial stationery was wrongly used to "advance a personal or pecuniary interest," according to the commission report.
Di Loreto's defense of his actions in the current case, that the addressee knew he was a judge, was the same argument the commission rejected in 2001, according to the report.

 Memo 47: Measuring the Impact of Judge Severity on Examination Scores
Correcting for judge severity improves the fairness of examinee measures and of the subsequent pass-fail decisions because the uncorrected raw scores favor examinee performances graded by lenient judges.
The reliability of this judge separation is 0.95, which is significantly greater than the zero that would be expected were these judges not discernibly different in their severity.
The danger that a particular judge might be miscalibrated for a particular examinee due to that judge's erratic behavior while grading that performance is guarded against by analyzing the various fit statistics.

 Italy in a Flash - HomeNews
Di Pietro's angry response to the end-of-year speech by the President of the Republic, Oscar L. Scalfaro, has united politicians against him and the country behind him.
Di Pietro's resentment is due - as he himself explains - to the fact that the President's speech, which does not name names, has been used by various Members of Parliament, on both the centre-right and extreme left, to attack him or his ex-colleagues in the Milan Pool.
Di Pietro has already sued for libel and slander some of those he has prosecuted and others accusing him of having abused the system of precautionary imprisonment, and has actually earned a sizeable sum from winning the lawsuits.

 CJP Admonishes Judge Over Use of Court Stationery
In March 2004, Di Loreto had agreed with city officials to move trailers and other vehicles, which were being stored on his vacant lot next to a professional building he owned, by the end of the year to a new building which was yet to be built, to avoid legal action, the commission found.
Di Loreto had argued before the commission that, since Yoshiki knew he was a judge, it didn’t matter that he used judicial stationery.
Di Loreto was appointed to the court in 1995 and sits in Long Beach.

 "Judge Dee" (1969)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
"Judge Dee" was Granada's attempt to adapt the stories of Robert H. Van Gulik for television.
These stories have been described by Julian Symons in his history of the crime novel ("Bloody Murder") as "simply curiosities" but this greatly underplays their charm and interest, set as they are in T'ang Dynasty China (but using the anachronistic trappings of the Ming Dynasty some seven or eight hundred years later).
Judge Dee rose to high office in the empire, but in the early part of his career he was a district magistrate, dispensing justice and investigating crimes: it is at this period of his career that most of Gulik's stories and this TV series are set.

 SignOnSanDiego.com > News > State/The West -- Bulk of firearms lawsuit set aside
A San Diego judge gutted a sweeping lawsuit against the firearms industry yesterday, ruling that several California cities involved in the action couldn't prove the nation's gun makers are to blame for weapons getting into the hands of criminals.
The judge released more than 20 of the nation's leading gun manufacturers from the suit, saying there was no evidence that they could be blamed for the fl market for guns in California.
The judge cited an affidavit by a former agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms who said a disproportionate number of guns involved in crimes could be traced to those two retailers.

 Judge Dee
The first I ever heard of Judge Dee was from a TV movie I saw when I was living in Hawaii in 1974, Judge Dee and the Monastery Murders.
Van Gulik's stories, however, were completely fictional in filling in the details of Judge Dee's life, cases, official positions, family, etc. They were also deliberately anachronistic in using Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) clothing, customs, and culture in describing events in the T'ang Dynasty, seven hundred years earlier.
The appeal of the Judge Dee stories is not only that they are good detective fiction but that they also draw on all of van Gulik's vast knowledge about Chinese life, history, literature, and jurisprudence.

 Mani pulite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On May 23 1992, judge Giovanni Falcone, in charge of the antimafia pool, was murdered with his wife and three bodyguards by a bomb underneath the highway from Palermo's airport to the city.
Since the government could not afford to be seen as an adversary of the popular judge pool, the decree was hastily revoked and marked a "misunderstanding"; minister for internal affairs Roberto Maroni from Lega Nord maintained that he had not even had the occasion of reading it.
It was later found that the main prosecutor of Di Pietro in these times, Fabio Salamone from Brescia, was the brother of a man that Di Pietro himself had prosecuted, and who was sentenced to 18 months of jail for various corruption charges.

The judge asked Palmer’s counsel, Jerome Lynch, QC: "We understand your instructing solicitors are Paul Martin & Co. A representative of that firm appears to be in court today.

 The “Vise Strategy” Undone
DI must have known that our case would be devastating to the defense —and thus to ID— if it was argued before a judge who respected the truth and the Constitution.
DI did not acknowledge ownership of it until 2002, after I independently authenticated it and wrote about it in 2001 [31].
DI corroborates Thompson’s statement about the offer to Meyer but says that Meyer “declined the offer because the previous actions of Thomas More had undermined his confidence in their legal judgment.” See “Setting the Record Straight About Discovery Institute’s Role in the Dover School District Case,’ Discovery Institute News, Nov. 10, 2005, here.

DOL administrative law judge David Di Nardi said the district and its board members waged a campaign of defamation against the opponent.
Judge Di Nardi said that MWRD’s conduct towards Anderson "shocks the conscience" and castigated the district for circulating "derogatory" electronic messages about Anderson and preventing her from accessing public records by inflating costs associated therewith.
Judge Di Nardi also ruled that a MWRD employee uttered "false statements under oath" when denying that MWRD has hired a public relations firm to counter Anderson’s growing criticisms of the MWRD and the ESD for the Lowry landfill site.

 Dispatches from the Culture Wars: More DI Distortions about Judge Jones
Judge Jones knew full well that the eyes of the world were upon him during the Dover case, and so chose that moment to deliver a "civics lesson."
It led, much to the DI's chagrin, to the Ohio Board of Education pulling the "critical analysis" lesson (the governor of Ohio asked the board to revisit the issue in light of the Dover ruling, despite the fact that it was not technically a binding precedent in Ohio).
All of this for a Judge who didn't listen to the evidence provided to him (as recounted in detail in "Traipsing Into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller vs. Dover Decision"), revised history, and was an activist judge.

 The Panda's Thumb: The Discovery Institute says it, they believe it, that settles it
As Judge Jones pointed out, it is not possible to “mention, but not teach” that Christian fundamentalists are pretending that Goddidit is scientific, as though this is a valid “alternative scientific theory.” To be blunt, it is NOT POSSIBLE to mention Goddidit (a direct synonym for ID) without turning science class into a pulpit.
Judge Jones could have simply ruled that IC in particular is non-religious because it makes no mention of a god, creationism, an intelligent designer, etc., and not considered the scientific merits of IC.
The judge did not even have to rule that far – he could have thrown out the case as moot because the pro-ID school board members had been replaced by anti-ID school board members, or he could have ruled strictly on the basis of the religious motivations of the former school board members.
