An attorney’s judicial misconduct complaint against a federal judge contained “inaccurate [and] self-serving” allegations, the Judicial Council of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit said in dismissing the claims.

The unnamed lawyer, representing a business owner being sued by a bank in a promissory note dispute, lodged several misconduct claims against a bankruptcy judge, including for allegedly berating him during a January 2021 hearing and comparing his courtroom conduct to the U.S. Capitol building riot.
