What the hell???

Arkansas Judge Fired For Discussing Charlize Theron’s Adoption

Via NBCnews:

The top court in Arkansas has ordered the immediate dismissal of Faulkner County Circuit Judge Michael Maggio after he spilled confidential details about an adoption involving Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron and posted “concerning” comments in a Web discussion forum. The Arkansas Supreme Court also signed off on a lifetime ban that was agreed to Maggio and the Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission.

The disciplinary panel found last month that Maggio — using the pseudonym “geauxjudge” and posting on an online sports fans forum — dished on details from Theron’s adoption of a baby in 2012 in the same court division where he served. Maggio has admitted writing the posts, the state court said.

A spokeswoman for Theron, who won an Academy Award for her role in the 2003 film “Monster,” did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the judge’s dismissal.

Surely the judge knew that this was inappropriate? SMH.
