U.S. Judge Milton Shadur of Chicago; incompetent boob


The state of Illinois presented Milton Irving Shadur with a law license in 1949 after he graduated from the University of Chicago Law School.


Former President Jimmy Carter was duped into appointing Milton as a U.S. District Court judge for the Northern District of Illinois in 1980. Milt didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney in the Chicago area. She received it because she had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


FYI: Judge Shadur assumed the position of a Senior Status Judge on June 25, 1992, a mere 12 years after he was confirmed to the bench. As a Senior Status judge, Milton is only required to work 10-hours-a-week in order to collect a full annual salary of $199,200. It should be noted that Congress allows a federal judge to take on Senior Status after 10 years.


In one matter, Milton was assigned to hear inmate Joseph Felton’s excessive force lawsuit against the city of Chicago and its police superintendent.U

  • “The district judge consulted newspaper .accounts of the arrest and then, without requiring an answer from the defendants, dismissed the suit as frivolous.” Circuit Judge Ann Williams wrote in the court’s June 28 opinion.
  • “But the suit was not frivolous, and the judge should not have dismissed it by relying on newspaper stories.”

Of course Milton doesn’t much give a damn how many times his asinine rulings are reversed by the Court of Appeals. And the reason he doesn’t care is because a federal judge cannot be removed from the bench for being an Incompetent Moron.


Who knows, maybe Milt the Moron will read find it acceptable to read several issues of Mad Magazine before rending another asinine decision.


Unless Milton who is 92-years-old (ca. 2016) attempts to break former U.S. Judge Wesley Brown of Kansas longevity record by serving for another 13 years when he reaches 105 years old, he may well be taken out of the courthouse in a wooden robe in the not too distant future.


And lastly, this is exactly the kind of judicial incompetence you can expect when you’re dealing with a 92-year-old geezer like Milt.


As we speak (ca. July 2016) Milt the Moron continues to sit as a U.S. District Court judge in Chicago, Illinois.
