A judicial ethics panel censured Clark County district judge candidate Joanna S. Kishner on Monday for making "reckless" statements about her opponent, Philip J. Dabney.
The Standing Committee on Judicial Ethics and Election Practices found Kishner knowingly made reckless statements that omitted facts about Dabney during their joint appearance on the Sept. 13 television show "Face to Face with Jon Ralston." Dabney and Kishner are candidates for the Department 31 district judge seat in Clark County.
A censure is a public reprimand.
Well, it's kind of like a public reprimand ... except for the "public" generally only includes people who read the small print in the back of legal publications.
