Hmmm, playing music for Eric Conn and being introduced as a Judge while on the business grounds of the Law Complex. Why would a local Judge sponsor Eric or endorse him ?

Why would it be inappropriate for a judge...that doesn't hear cases from this attorney at all...to play and perform at this function? In a county that is also NOT where this judge sits the bench. Eric practices in SSD not DUI's and domestic violence. He will never bring a case before that judge. Shame on YOU people, why would you even care? You should be careful with all that hatred, it does things to your insides.

A judge should never lend his or her name to any attorney's promotions, it looks too much like the judge has endorsed the lawyer. Its against the judicial rules.

This judge has been playing in a band since 1966 or 67, it is his hobby and his passtime. He plays at all kinds of gatherings, you can be a judge and still have a social life. His court does not have a damn thhing to do with a SS or SSI case. You can't even convience the ignorant or any collaboration. Must be a pretty good judge if he is not afraid to mix and mingle with the people, I see him playing at all kind of events. Not that he can sing worth a damn but that is another issue, he is just having a good time with a musical hobby he has been in for over 40 years...I seen him play at Jerry's last summer, that don't mean he endorsed the J-boy although he used eat a lot of em..

According to the following it looks like it is okay. Playing in a band at an event where there was no fund raising for and no kind of politics seems legitimate. Eric Conn has no contact with the local judicial system as all of his work is done out of West Virginia, I guess. So, maybe in this case it was okay??
