The good part is this Judge won't be able to hear any more Police misconduct cases. Every cloud has a silver lining after all!

It would seem to me that a sitting Judge and prior Police Commissioner would know to follow the commands of the Police Officers and would realize that exiting his car to go to his vehicle trunk would cause the officers to take appropriate actions. Obviously the Judge must have thought rules do not apply to him but my guess is he makes officers obey rules in his courtroom. He was not cuffed "because of a seat belt violation." He was cuffed and placed in the cruiser directly due to his actions at the scene. I guess the officers should of somehow magically of known he was a Judge and rules do not apply to him. Now he is going to sue? I hope the department fights this case to the bitter end.
