Following a three-day hearing, the prosecuting attorney in Florida Judge Cheryl Aleman's misconduct case recommended that the Judicial Qualifications Commission issue a public reprimand for behaving in a vindictive manner and using fear to control her courtroom. But Aleman's attorney said that the prosecutor had failed to prove that she had exhibited a pattern of arrogant, discourteous and impatient conduct. The hearing panel has no deadline to make its recommendation to the Florida Supreme Court.
