The Court of the Judiciary, now Board of Judicial Conduct, has issued a public reprimand against Judicial District 19 Circuit Court Judge John Gasaway, in response to a complaint filed against the judge. The reprimand came about after Gasaway published an order in response to a motion to recuse in cases involving attorneys who had recently left the law practice where his wife worked. "A significant dispute" had arisen between his wife and the attorney, the reprimand says, and that conclusions drawn by the judge were not obtained through any hearing. The publication of the order without a hearing was in violation of Canon 2 of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Download the reprimand
