Judge Andrew Decker III of Live Oak, FL; ethical dwarf

 
The state of Florida presented Andrew J. Decker with a law license in 1979 after he graduated from the University of Florida Law School.
 
Andrew succeeded in duping the voters into electing him as a Circuit Court Judge in November 2012.
 
The Florida State Bar’s Third Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee found probable cause that Judge Becker engaged in the following misconduct.
 
Judge Decker’s misconduct involved his handling of a real estate foreclosure case as a private attorney prior to his election to the bench.
 
The misconduct charges were made by Daniel A. Dukes of Union County, a partner in the B.W.D. Land Trust that was represented by Judge Decker in foreclosure negotiations with TD Bank. Other trust partners were Circuit Court Judge Paul S. Bryan of Lake City, and William E. Woodington of Union County. (Suwannee Democrat)
 
Mr. Dukes accused Judge Decker of conspiring with Judge Bryan to transfer Duke’s one-third ownership of the foreclosed property to the judge, then withdrew as Duke’s attorney and later represented Judge Bryan in a bankruptcy filing.
 
Duke’s also accused Judge Decker of representing clients before Judge Bryan without disclosing to the opposing party that Decker had serves as Judge Bryan’s lawyer in other legal proceedings.
 
All that remains is to see what if any discipline is meted out to Judge Decker by the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Florida Supreme Court.
 
As we speak (December 2013), Judge Decker remains sitting as a Circuit Court Judge in Live Oak, Florida.
