Montana Judge asked for protective order for Bill Windsor and confiscation of an arsenal of weapons


Montana Judge asked for protective order for Bill Windsor and confiscation of an arsenal of weapons.

Sean Boushie attempted to murder Bill Windsor on August 4, 2013.  Sean Boushie had previously threatened him 147 times.  Sean Boushie had cyberstalked him for two years.  But William M. Windsor was denied a protective order from four different Montana courts.

On August 17, 2015, Sean Boushie wore a National Rifle Association T-shirt and apparently had a concealed handgun when he met face-to-face with Bill Windsor for the first time in Missoula Montana.  This is frightening…

Georgia Judge Amanda Williams Resigns before being Impeached

Brunswick Georgia Judge Amanda Williams has resigned under extreme fire.  One down and a few hundreds corrupt Georgia judges to go….

In her courtroom in Brunswick, Georgia, Judge Amanda F. Williams told lawyers to “sit down and shut up.”

She once jailed a defendant for using the words “baby momma.” And she detained offenders “indefinitely” without access to lawyers, state judicial investigators say.

But on Monday, December 19, 2011, Judge Amanda Williams, the chief judge of the Superior Court of the Brunswick Judicial Circuit — a powerful, controversial figure who gained national exposure when the public radio program “This American Life” devoted an hour-long episode to her — announced that she was leaving the bench after 21 years.

Judge Amanda Williams, 64, who said she would resign on January 2, 2012, faced wide-ranging misconduct accusations. She vowed not to seek another judgeship, and, as a result, those complaints will be dropped, the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission said.

She could still face criminal charges related to her conduct.

She was first elected in 1990 to the court, which handles cases in five southeast Georgia counties. For more than a decade, she also ran the state’s largest drug court.


She has long been known as an aggressive, combative judge, lawyers say. But in recent years, they say, her behavior grew harsher and more punitive.


In November and December, the judicial commission brought formal complaints against Judge Williams, after receiving multiple complaints from lawyers.

The commission accused her of giving special treatment to the relatives of her friends, allowing her personal lawyer to represent clients before her and behaving in a “tyrannical” manner.


According to the commission’s 14-count list of charges against her, she sentenced drug court defendants to “indefinite” detention “until further order of the court.” In one case, she ordered that a defendant be denied any communication. “Nobody! Total restriction!” she ordered, according to the complaint. “No mail, no phone calls, no visitors.” The complaint says the defendant, who had a history of mental illness, spent 73 days in solitary confinement and tried to kill herself while in jail.


“Judge Williams was a person you did not cross,” said J. Robert Morgan, a lawyer in Brunswick who argued cases before her. “She ruled by fear and intimidation. I’ve been in front of 50 judges in 34 years and I’ve never seen anything like her.”


Her lawyer, John J. Ossick Jr., declined to comment. Judge Williams did not return phone calls. But in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in April, she defended her behavior. “I didn’t just decide I was going to be mean to these people,” she said. “These people aren’t sitting in jail forever and ever and ever and ever. I’m fair. I’m consistent. I do care.”


In March, “This American Life” broadcast an entire episode about Judge Williams and what it called “possibly the toughest drug court in the country.”


Douglas W. Alexander, a lawyer in St. Simons, was initially a supporter of Judge Williams. But as her power grew and the drug court expanded, she became more combative and punitive, Mr. Alexander said. “She would tell a lawyer to shut up and sit down,” he said. “She would rant and rave and belittle people.” For years, lawyers tolerated the behavior for fear of retribution against their clients, several lawyers said. “People cussed her in the dark because they were afraid to cuss her in the daylight,” Mr. Morgan said. “There’s not many tears being shed about this announcement.”

Unnamed Atlanta Federal Judge Under Investigation


It was easy to miss through the din of nearly 800 South Florida lawyers eating lunch, but the chief judge of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there is an investigation under way into a U.S. district judge for judicial misconduct.

Judge Joel F. Dubina would not say where the judge sits in the 11th Circuit, which encompasses Florida, Georgia and Alabama, or the basis of the complaint.

He told attendees at the Southern District of Florida Bench and Bar Conference in Doral last week that he has convened a committee and approved its request to hire an investigator. The committee has subpoena power.

Some attorneys speculated Dubina wouldn’t have mentioned the investigation if it had been a South Florida judge.

Dubina said he dismisses 99.9 percent of complaints against district judges, finding most of the complainants were sore about the outcome of a case. He said going through complaints was the most distasteful part of being chief judge.

Dubina, who was making his third speech in a week, said he has seen a sea change from big drug cases to fraud and public corruption cases in the last few years.

The chief judge said he likes to stay sharp by returning to the Middle District of Alabama each summer to oversee some trials. “The lawyers always looked shocked when they see me on the bench,” he said.

Dubina served as a U.S. magistrate judge from 1983 to 1986 and as a district judge in Alabama from 1986 to 1990 before being nominated to the 11th Circuit by President George H.W. Bush. He took the position of chief judge last June.
