Judge Halverston's Husband Found Guilty in Frying Pan Attack

The tragicomedy that is Las Vegas Judge Elizabeth Halverston's recent life closed one act today when her husband pleaded guilty to "one count of battery with a deadly weapon with substantial bodily harm after attacking his wife with a frying pan," according to the Las Vegas Sun. Edward Halverson avoided a charge of attempted murder for the attack, which left his wife in the hospital for two weeks with severe injuries.

Above the Law has followed Judge Halverston's travails for some time, even publicly offering her a regular column on the legal gossip blog. Accusations by judicial aids that she ordered them to give her foot massages and back rubs, and often fell asleep on the bench were more than enough to earn ATL's infatuation. What started as a passing interest in her plus-sized, er, personality, grew into a fascination with her battle to keep her judgeship and finally into an appreciation for her advocacy and a genuine concern for her well-being after the vicious attack by her husband. You can catch up on all the sordid details of L'Affaire Halverston here.
