Judge Donna Dutton of Shelbyville, KY; ethical goblin


The state of Kentucky presented Robert B. Conley with a law license in 1981 after he graduated from Northern Kentucky University School of Law.


The Judicial Conduct Commission found Shan guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Failed to act in manner promoting public confidence in the integrity of the judiciary
  • Abused judicial office to advance her personal or economic interests or that of others
  • Failed to perform judicial duties fairly and impartially
  • Failed to be patient, dignified, and courteous to litigants
  • Improperly allowed family, social, political, financial, or other interests or relationships to influence her conduct or judgment
  • Failed to disqualify himself when required to so act
  • Engaged in illegal ex parte (one-sided) communications

As a direct consequence of her misconduct, the cheerleaders for Judicial Misfits and Aspiring Standup Comedians sitting on the Kentucky Supreme Court punished Donna by gifting her with a complimentary 14-day suspension from the bench.


As we speak (ca. September 2019), Donna continues to sit as a 53rd Judicial Circuit Judge in Shelbyville, Kentucky.
