Joseph, Hollander & Craft criminal defense attorney Christopher Joseph received an opportunity to comment on the Kansas Supreme Court case concerning Marty K. Clark, former magistrate judge for the 20th Judicial District in Russell, KS. Joseph is Clark’s attorney. According to an October 29 Associated Press article, Joseph said that, “punishing Clark for sending nude photos to a private channel on his own time would be setting [a] dangerous precedent” and that “morality should not be a basis for discipline unless there is a direct connection to the job.”
The case has drawn a lot of attention, including articles in the Kansas City Star, Topeka Capital-Journal, WIBW News, and even the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal blog.
This is the third judicial conduct matter Christopher Joseph and fellow criminal defense attorney Carrie Parker have represented just this year, and the second to have gone before the Kansas Supreme Court. Due to his significant, recent experience in judicial conduct practice, Joseph is set to present on this topic at the Kansas Law Journal Symposium on Monday, November 15, 2021 alongside several distinguished legal scholars and practitioners.
