Ex-judge fares poorly under questioning

So, Robert A. Mulligan, former chief justice for administration and finance for the Trial Court, admits that at times he skipped the paperwork process when hiring politically connected job candidates as court officers (“Retired chief judge grilled on stand,” Metro, July 3). He said he had a subordinate sign his name.

Displaying the arrogance perhaps only a judge could, he said, “I never envisioned there would be questions over it.”

Of course not. Who would ever question a jurist of such integrity?


And we wonder why people are turned off and don’t trust government.
