A judge is gone, but not forgotten

The controversial career of Judge Timothy Ellender ended in 2015, but its effects will remain through at least one retrial. The Supreme Court recently reversed a jury medical malpractice defense verdict on finding that Judge Ellender's "bizarre and disturbing behavior" during the trial resulted in a "miscarriage of justice."

Judge Ellender gained national attention for past conduct which once landed a six month suspension for wearing blackface, handcuffs and a jail jumpsuit to a halloween party and another suspension for comments made to a victim of domestic abuse at the hearing on her request for a temporary restraining order.
