The Supreme Court of Nevada issued a decision yesterday in Azucena v. Stateoverturning a conviction and life sentence due to Judge Richard Scotti’s reaction when a juror explained why she would not be able to be impartial. Judge Scotti’s rant included inappropriate language and tossing a pocket size U.S. Constitution book against the wall. You can read more about it in the opinion and can see video of the incident in this RJ article. How do you think this will affect Judge Scotti’s chances of being retained next year?
