Sex, Lies and Shenanigans

Item one: A judge in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., has received a public censure from the state's Commission on Judicial Conduct for telling a criminal-defense lawyer in open court that she had "a nice butt." The judge claimed in his defense that he was merely parroting a comment the lawyer's client had made, but the commission noted that the judge went on to poll other male defendants on whether they agreed with the evaluation, which he then repeated to the lawyer, adding, "Is that so bad?"

Item two: The attorney for a Woodland, Calif., dentist charged with groping female patients' breasts is attempting to defend his client's dental license by arguing that the chest massages were medically justified. The attorney told an administrative law judge that rubbing a dental patient's pectoral muscles is an appropriate treatment for temporo-mandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. [Associated Press.]

Item three: A cheating husband's lawsuit against the florist who sent a thank-you note to his unsuspecting wife has been nipped in the bud. As J. Craig Williams noted in August, Leroy Greer sued in federal court after his wife intercepted the company's thank-you note for roses Greer had sent to another woman. Greer's lawsuit alleged that the company violated its own privacy policy. But a federal judge in Houston last week dismissed the case, ruling that it should have been brought in New York.
