the Cleveland Plain Dealer website, this morning. Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold, the now notorious Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge with the wildly out of control ego-issues that I previously reported on at length at Bad Lawyer has now been outed by the newspaper that she sued, as a serial online bigot.
Saffold who's nom de internets is Lawmiss has been tracked to websites including the New York Times, Twitter, Aol.com, BlackVoices, and the dating website: Plentyoffish.com. Judge Saffold's Lawmiss commentary is racist, bigoted, and hateful, and the newspaper she sued is going to make sure you and everyone else connected with the courts in Ohio know about it.
As you well recall this story emerged because Saffold found herself in the most high-profile case of her career, the Anthony Sowell serial murder prosecution. Saffold who has always had a difficult relationship over many years, with the local media attempted to bar certain reporters from her courtroom and when certain stories appeared she issued orders directing that reporters and editors appear in her courtroom. The Plain Dealer learned that Saffold was posting online commentary at their website that was racially insulting of attorney Rufus Sims, who is Anthony Sowell's criminal defense counsel.
This is the Judge who is in death throes with her ego.
