Scuzzbucket of the Week

Redneck cajun judge Timothy Ellender.

You'd think that this person would've learned something from the diversity and sensitivity training he was probably ordered to attend during his suspension as a result of this incident: click on photo for larger version

Apparently judge Ellender was never taught to shut up when he has nothing nice to say. He seems to have a history going too far bad mouthing people.

In his most recent loss of civility was directed at a battered woman
looking for a restraining order against her spouse

Judge Timothy Ellender refused to keep in place an emergency restraining order obtained by Eula Smith Warren, telling her she could get a divorce but not a restraining order. He also congratulated her husband, Charles Warren, for threatening to make his 2-year-old daughter’s “booty bleed” if she didn’t behave herself....

This scuzzbucket has been brought before the Louisiana Supreme Court to answer allegations. Let's hope - based on his history - he gets more than a slap on the wrist.

It amazes me how people like this can defend themselves with weak excuses like "He didnt have his hearing aids on", or "he was having a bad day". What, for 27 years? The blackface thing alone warrants a closer look at his moral integrity (or lack thereof), but denying restraining orders and the like? he needs to be removed from the bench and disbarred.
