Milford Judge Admonished

A judge in Milford is admonished by the state Commission on Judicial Conduct for engaging in political activities prohibited by law.

According to the commission Justice Carol A. Rumenapp agreed to the admonition which was approved by an 8 to 2 vote.

The commission found that in 2015, Rumenapp improperly circulated designating petitions for a candidate for Milford town supervisor and attested to the signatures on two other petitions.

Those actions according to the commission gave the appearance that the justice might be biased in favor of the candidates whose petitions were involved.
