A Nebraska judge who was an assistant coach for his daughter’s softball team has been ejected from the bench for meddling in a prosecution against the team’s head coach.

The Supreme Court of Nebraska decided to strip Judge Kent Florom of his judgeship for trying to thwart the prosecution of the coach, who was also a teacher at a Nebraska high school and had pleaded no contest to charges that she stole about $900 from her school’s booster club.
