Judicial Merit Selection Commission report on Judge F.P. Segars-Andrews
The Judicial Merit Selection Commission report on Judge F.P. Segars-Andrews can be located here. It appears my concern that Mr. Simpson and his attorney may have sandbagged Judge Segars-Andrews about the alleged conflict created by the business relationship between her husband and Ms. Simpson’s attorney is not borne out by the facts. It’s finally clear why Judge Segars-Andrews believes she made a mistake in ruling on the Simpson case: her husband had recently received a $300,000 fee from a fee-split with Ms. Simpson’ s attorney and she didn’t reveal this until she had heard the case. She then reversed her decision to recuse herself based, in part, upon an affidavit of Professor Nathan Crystal without giving Mr. Simpson an opportunity to respond to that affidavit. I still don’t believe this one mistake renders her unqualified to remain a family court judge.
