Complaint One

See how Judge Lagueux backs up another judge regardless of the wrongdoing that took place. This kind of rubberstamping is rampant in our courts and the terms "review", "de novo hearing" and "appeal" are becoming meaningless. Was Judge Lagueux objective, fair and impartial while ruling in the matter of Ronald L'Heureux?

Complaint Two

Aldrian Diaz asserted during his trial that Judge Lagueux's son, a state trooper, was charged with stealing vintage submachine guns from state police headquarters in 1993. A statewide grand jury declined to indict Trooper Gregory C. Lagueux and he is still with the state police. Judge Lagueux shouted at Diaz telling him to "shut up."

Complaint Three

In a sentencing hearing for a Plunder Dome defendant last year [2000], Judge Lagueux said from the bench that, "Cianci ran the most corrupt administration in state history." The problem was he wasn't sentencing Cianci and was aware the Plunder Dome hearings would continue. Later, due to his remarks, he had to recuse himself from the case.

Complaint Four

Out-of-state celebrity lawyers have a history of trouble in Rhode Island courts, especially when they don't follow traditional Rhode Island court shenenigans. The most notorious case being that of Alan M. Dershowitz, who in 1985 defended Claus Von Bulow against charges that he tried to murder his wife.

In a front-page article in May 1986, The Journal said Professor Dershowitz had held the state's courts ''up to ridicule'' by depicting a system replete with cronyism, influence peddling and cutting of corners. The article reported Professor Dershowitz had asserted that anyone who sought justice in Rhode Island needed ''an intellectual out-of-state lawyer'' to argue his case while some ''local yokel'' bargained with judges behind the scenes.

U.S. District Judge Ronald R. Lagueux, then a Superior Court judge, was so offended he barred Dershowitz from his court -- a statement for which Lagueux was censured by a regional Judicial Council.


FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Many times the reason or purpose for events in our life initially escapes us,
but I am certain we can find reason and/or purpose in everything that happens!


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."
