Reported Misconduct Committed By Judge Robert F. Arrigan In Rhode Island
Judge Robert Arrigan Has Been Faulted For Fund Raising, Back Room Dealings, Bad Work Practices And More In Rhode Island
In 1995, the Commission on Judicial Tenure and Discipline recommended that Arrigan be suspended for three months for allegedly asking lawyers practicing in his court to support charities he favored, and to help defray the costs of a professional conference he was hosting. The advisory panel also charged he had conversations with lawyers on one side of cases. But the Rhode Island Supreme Court disagreed a year later, throwing out most of the disciplinary case, agreeing only to publicly censure Arrigan for improperly soliciting lawyers on behalf of charities. God forbid the Rhode Island Supreme Court put a damper on the Rhode Island practice of back room dealings!

It takes a short time to learn to exercise power, but a lifetime to learn how to avoid abusing it.
We are no longer a country of laws, we are a country where laws are "creatively interpreted."
