Kentucky Judge Sandra McLaughlin was reprimanded this week for posting about a murder case on her public Facebook page, the ABA Journal reports. McLaughlin shared an article and commented on a case taking place in Jefferson County district court, where she is a judge. The reprimand said the post violated rules requiring judges to uphold the integrity of the judiciary and refrain from public comments that could affect the outcome of pending cases.
