Rude Awakening For Sleeping Judge
Huh? What? Oh, sorry. I was sleeping, much like Rockingham County, New Hampshire Judge Patricia Coffey. She beat that rap, but won't be able to snooze her way through these latest allegations. See, her husband was disbarred in 2005, and the state has been trying to collect legal fees relating to his disbarment. The Judicial Conduct Committee filed a complaint against Judge Coffee alleging that she helped create a trust to put her husband's assets beyond the reach of creditors. Although she denied the charges, she did admit that the timing appears compromising. Really? There will be a hearing on the charges in late September. You can read more here.
