Prof. Painter Quoted in Minnesota Lawyer on Criticism of Judges

Professor Richard Painter was quoted by Minnesota Lawyer on when it is appropriate to criticize a judge. Professor Painter commented, “I think it is very unprofessional to attack the integrity of a judge — it is extremely unprofessional, and I don’t have a high opinion of that. Lawyers mouthing off on the radio is very poor taste, and it reflects very poorly on the lawyer. I don’t like the idea of judges disciplining lawyers for criticizing judges in the press, or in public statements, or in radio statements.”
