Scott County judge reprimanded for 'accusatory, hostile and discourteous comments' in court

 


A Scott County judge has been reprimanded for his behavior in court — and it’s not the first time.

The Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards on Tuesday publicly reprimanded Judge Rex Stacey, saying he had made “accusatory, hostile and discourteous comments” to litigants in two separate cases.

“The effect of conduct such as Judge Stacey’s is to cause litigants to lose confidence in the fairness of the judicial system,” a memorandum from the board said.
