Are Minnesota judges endowed with superior ethics?


Since 1987, a period of 23 years, only nine (9) judges in Minnesota have been disciplined by the Minnesota Supreme court for engaging in misconduct.
During this 23 year period of time there were 600 judges that sat on the bench, which means that only 1.5% of the judges ever engaged in any unethical conduct warranting discipline. Goshes and Gollies and Gee Whillickers, kinda gives a new meaning to the slogan for “Ivory Soap” if y’all know what I mean.
The amount of judges in the State of Washington during this period of time is about the same, meaning there were about 660 judges. However, during this 23 year period of time, the Washington Supreme Court disciplined 141 judges verses only 9 in Minnesota. This can only be interpreted to mean that the judges in Washington State are about sixteen (16) times more unethical than those in Minnesota, right?
In fact, in 1993 and 1999 nine (9) judges were disciplined in Washington. In 1995 and 2005 ten (10) judges were disciplined. This proves that for those years, the judges in Washington State were at least twenty-three (23) times more unethical than those in Minnesota.
If things continue as they have over the past 23 years in Minnesota, it’ll take the State Supreme Court at least 322 more years until the year 2332 before it will be able to discover another 132 unethical judges. Hope I’m around to report on it when number 141 meets his/her comeuppance.
All you folks living in Washington may want to consider asking your attorney to have any future lawsuits litigated in Minnesota. Obviously you want to avoid voluntary appearances in any court in the State of Washington.
Let’s all stand up and give a Bronx cheer for the ethical judicial giants running amok in the great state of Minnesota.
