A Utah judge just received his own sentence after trash talking President Donald Trump.
Judge Michael Kwan has made social media posts as well as regular courtroom comment that slam the sitting president of the United States.
One such example is a post he made accusing Trump of an “inability to govern and political incompetence.”
But actions have consequences as any judge should well know and now Kwan as been suspended without pay for six months due to his insulting outbursts.
Utah State Supreme Court Justice John A. Pearce spoke out following Kwan’s suspension.
“Judge Kwan’s behavior denigrates his reputation as an impartial, independent, dignified, and courteous jurist who takes no advantage of the office in which he serves,” Pearce explained.
Kwan has protested the suspension calling it an inappropriate and an unlawful attempt to regulate his constitutionally protected speech according to Pearce’s piece.
Kwan’s attorney, Greg Skordas, said the judge is disappointed with the severity of the suspension but accepted that he would get some reprimand.
Hopefully Kwan will learn from this lesson.
