Judge Michael Swingley of Helena, MT; ethical troll


The Montana Judicial Standards Commission found Judge Swingley guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Used his official email to express his political opinions about the far-right conspiracy theory QAnon
  • Engaged in illegal ex parte (one-sided) communications
  • Failed to advise opposing party of content of ex parte communications and afford them the opportunity to respond (aka, due process)

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Montana Supreme Court punished Judge Swingley by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.


As we speak (ca. December 2019), Swingley continues to sit as a Lewis and Clark County Justice of the Peace in Helena, Montana.
