Thomas-watch: April 10, 2012, Findings to be announced

Announced by the Arizona Judicial Branch -

Presiding Disciplinary Judge William O'Neil has set a hearing for the Thomas, Aubuchon, Alexander Attorney Discipline Matter.

The hearing will take place on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at 9 am at the Arizona State Courts Building, located at 1501 West Washington, in the Supreme Court Courtroom. The hearing is expected to last approximately 30 minutes.

The Discipline Hearing Panel will release their findings in the Discipline Matter and read a summary from the bench. The full order will be available immediately following the hearing and will be emailed to the media and available on the court's web site.

I believe the proceeding will be open to the public, but even if it is, there isn't a lot of seating availability in the Supreme Court Courtroom, so the best option for viewing may be the live streaming option that will be available on the Court's website.

There's another reason to prefer watching the live stream over being there - the court being the court (you know, stuffy concerned about maintaining decorum), the probably wouldn't be amused by audience members giving a big "Whoo Whoo!!" when the findings are read.

I'll put in my vote for stuffy. If we are to be ruled by judges let their rule be a somber one.
