Judicial panel orders briefs in Ziegler discipline case
A judicial panel handling Justice Annette Ziegler's discipline case ordered briefs to address details in media reports about her handling of cases involving a bank for which her husband served on the board of directors.
The three-member Judicial Conduct Panel wrote it needs more information about the cases than what was included in the stipulation Ziegler and the Judicial Commission reached that recommended she face a reprimand for violating conflict of interest rules.
Ziegler and the commission were given three weeks to file the briefs and one week to state their positions on where a Nov. 19 hearing on the matter should be held.
