Judge James Hamilton of Columbia, TN; idiot, Judge Roy Bean Wannabee
Unfortunately Judge James Hamilton sits as the Senior Judge in Maury County Circuit Court in Columbia, Tennessee, which is about 45 miles south of Nashville.
Recently, this certified idiot and scofflaw was found guilty of misconduct by the Tennessee Court of the Judiciary for engaging in conduct aimed at emulating Judge Roy Bean.
Jimmy was found guilty of repeatedly entered ex-parte orders dismissing cases without the first personally determined that they had been submitted to, and first approved by the District Attorney General.
Jimmy also entered ex-parte orders expunging criminal convictions of various defendants without ever assuring that the DA was aware of and approved of his actions.
In other words, Judge Roy Bean determined that he had the absolute authority to act as the judge, defense counsel, prosecutor and jury. What a guy!
As a result of his egregious misconduct in thumbing his nose at the law, the Tennessee Supreme Court punished Jimmy by gifting him with a complimentary public reprimand.
Judge William Singbush of Ocala, FL; habitual slacker, Elmer Gantry Wannabee
Unfortunately for the hardworking taxpayers, Judge William “Jack the Slacker” Singbush has been sitting as a judge in Marion County (Ocala), Florida since 1990.
To argue that Judge Singbush is a lazy SOB would be a monumental understatement. On May 10, 2011, the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission (JQC) lodged charges against Singbush, some of which are as follows:
This isn’t the first time that the JQC was made aware of the Slacker’s habitual habit of being late to court, etc. In fact, the JQC was provided with a similar complaint in 1995.
An unreliable source indicated that on many of Judge Singbush’s extended liquid lunches he was accompanied by longtime friends Jack Daniels and/or Igor Stolichnaya.
Illegally obtaining criminal report from NCIC
During or prior to a trial he was presiding over involving Jumbolair Aviation Estates as the plaintiff, Singbush illegally obtained a criminal history profile of a key witness for Jumbolair from the Nat’l Crime Investigative Center (NCIC), which are only available to law enforcement personnel.
When Jumbolair’s attorneys requested a mistrial due to Singbush’s illegal conduct, Reverend Singbush responded by introducing religion and religious beliefs into his decicison making decision as follows:
“I don’t know of anybody that’s not made a mistake – and except for perhaps one, and for that we murdered him. You know, he was faultless and we murdered him for it. That’s not politically correct, but I happen to believe in God.”
In a follow-up statement he said, “Christ is the intercessor.”
Jumbolair’s lawyers maintained at the time that the comments exhibited a bias against their witness’ Jewish heritage.
As punishment for questioning whether Reverend Singbush was an Anti-Semite, he intentionally withheld any ruling on the case until a year later.
How will the Right Reverend Billy “Jack” Singbush be punished?
Since the Judicial Commission is much more concerned with acting as enablers for Judicial Misfits, it is more likely than not that they’ll punish Billy Jack by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.
Obviously, this habitual loser should be removed from the bench. Moreover, he should be made to repay the taxpayers for his habitual conduct in not showing up for work or taking extended lunches/smoke breaks.
