Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks accused Juvenile Court Judge Curtis Person of violating her First Amendment rights and failing to promote confidence in the integrity of the court in a complaint filed with the Board of Judicial Conduct. Based on documents she provided to the media yesterday, Brooks said she has repeatedly asked that she and other “community monitors” be allowed to attend juvenile court proceedings but has been denied by Person because of her history of using her public office to attack him and the court, the Commercial Appeal reports.
