Ohio’s top judge is scratching his head over the actions of some of his fellow judges. Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Moyer says problem judges have causing the high court’s liability insurance to double in price. Taxpayers will pay $720,000 this year for premiums. Moyer isn’t naming names, but he cites as examples a judge who sent a threatening letter to a woman after a road-rage case and another judge who asked troopers to maintain a steady stream of tickets to make sure his court had enough money. Moyer says some judges don’t understand that they are held to a higher standard.
