Attorneys representing an Ohio judge accused of operating her courtroom in a manner “befitting a game show host rather than a judge” agreed that some misconduct occurred, but disagreed that it warranted an indefinite suspension.

The Ohio Supreme Court adopted the Board of Professional Conduct’s findings, in a 5-2 majority that rejected its two-year suspension for Cleveland Municipal Judge Pinkey Suzanne Carr. Rather, the majority held that Carr’s “unprecedented misconduct” warranted an indefinite suspension, the per curiam opinion said.
