Hey, check out our book about York County Probate Judge, ...

IT'S A TRUE STORY OF SEX AND BETRAYAL—AND THE ETHICS THAT MAKE IT OKAY The Ethics of Judge Nadeau is the TRUE story of a judge who is (at the time of publishing this book) currently presiding over York County Probate Court in Maine. The premise of the book is that—in spite of the Maine Bar of Overseers’ rulings to the contrary—the behavior of Judge Nadeau is unethical. Referencing real exhibits and depositions in an actual court case, The Ethics of Judge Nadeau provides a bird’s eye view into the reasoning behind behavior that is so incredible it will literally take your breath away. This candid and (often) humorous account of Judge Nadeau’s antics (in and out of the courtroom) is as entertaining as it is astonishing. For us, the authors, it represents the last decade of our lives. This book is based on the belief that there are some things a lawyer should not do—especially if he’s a judge—because they are either unethical, illegal, or just plain stupid. Here are ten of the most obvious (or what we think should be the most obvious): 1. A lawyer should not sleep with a client. 2. A lawyer should not tell everyone who will listen what his client told him while he was representing her. 3. A lawyer should not secretly advise the opponents in his former client's case. 4. A lawyer should not stalk, slander and terrorize former clients. 5. A lawyer should not enter his personal psych file as an exhibit without reading it first. 6. A lawyer should not sue everyone he hates...just because he can. 7. A lawyer should not make two—or even three—opposing statements under oath. 8. A lawyer should not use depositions to get private information from witnesses to use against them later. 9. A lawyer should not use client funds to pay his firm's operating expenses. 10. And finally, if a lawyer does do all of the things listed above, he should probably not put it all in writing. Not only has Judge Robert Nadeau done all of these things, but he actually tries to defend them in his many emails, pleadings and depositions (many of which are either included in the book or have been uploaded online for you to see). Worst of all, the judicial system has supported him every step of the way. Whether or not you actually find yourself in a courtroom, The Ethics of Judge Nadeau will impact the way you view our judicial system. Anyone out there in York County have a similar experience? I would love to hear your thoughts.  (Oct 25, 2013 | post #1)
