Complaint 1: The Supreme Court ruled Judge Dimitri failed to instruct the jury on the standard of care drivers owe children under state law. [From the Providence Journal 3-26-99]
Note: Caught realizes this failure to instruct the jury could have been an error or lapse in judgment and may not necessarily constitute judicial misconduct. Be advised that an innocent or non-deliberate error does NOT constitute judicial misconduct. Caught is listing reversals when made aware of them to see if patterns exist with the various judges. Unless one sees a pattern, the reader should consider this complaint informative, but not necessarily determinative, of judicial misconduct.
