In Re Judicial Misconduct Complaint (9th Cir. - April 13, 2010)

There are certain things in life that are a virtual certainty. Death. Taxes. Stuff like that.

Here's one more to add to the list: When you make a judicial misconduct complaint, it's much, much more likely that you'll be found to have engaged in misconduct -- and sanctioned -- for making the complaint than that the judge is sanctioned. Because pretty much always, the nutjob isn't the one on the bench, but rather the guy staring at you in the mirror.

Now it's time for my noontime public debate (with my colleague Miranda McGowan) about whether it's constitutional to ban vibrators. Ah, academia.
