Judge Wulle I believe my career in law is over

first_img“I believe my career in law is over,” Judge John Wulle told a panel of 10 judicial board members weighing his fate.Wulle was the final witness Tuesday in his two-day disciplinary hearing before the Washington Commission on Judicial Conduct. The hearing concerned allegations that he showed a pattern of rude and ill-tempered courtroom behavior, based on his conduct during four court actions over three years.Wulle lost his re-election bid this month to lawyer David Gregerson, and noted to the board that his final day in office is Dec. 31.“Unless you kick me out early,” the judge said.That is possible, said Steven Reisler, attorney for the commission. In his closing argument, Reisler recommended that board members censure Wulle with a recommendation to the state Supreme Court for his suspension and, possibly, a removal.Reisler reasoned to the board that Wulle has already been censured, in 2007, for his behavior at a Los Angeles training conference, so the discipline had to be more severe. He suggested a minimum five-day suspension from the bench.It’s unclear how the discipline would affect the remainder of Wulle’s term, as commission members have up to 90 days to make a written recommendation to the state Supreme Court, which has the final say.last_img read more
