Ex. Judge Agapito L. Hontanosas, Jr. of Cebu, Philippines; certified moron

 
Judge Hontanosas was tossed off the bench after the High Tribunal found him guilty of “gross ignorance of the law” and undue delay in rendering a decision. The Tribunal also fined him 20,000 Pesos.
 
As is the case with most Judicial Misfits, Hontanosas branded the complaint as that of a disgruntled litigant and claimed the complaint was intended purely as harassment. In an unusual twist (hardly ever happens in the U.S. of A), the Phillpine Supreme Court didn’t buy Hontanosas’ “blame the victim” defense.
 
Watchdog’s Commentary
 
In reviewing thousands upon thousands of complaints about Judicial Ignoramuses here in the U.S., I have never, and I mean never seen a judge disciplined for his/her “gross ignorance of the law,” let along tossed from the bench.
 
If every ignoramus donning a robe in the U.S. of A. and elsewhere was benched, the vacancy rate for judgships would skyrocket.
 
Unfortunately, here in the U.S., ignorance of the law is normally a stepping stone to higher office.
