Fmr. Montgomery judge denies wrongdoing, seeks case dismissal

Fmr. judge Patricia Warner Fmr. judge Patricia Warner
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Former Montgomery Judge Patricia Warner's 30 days are up and she has submitted a response to the civil complaint made against her by the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission.

Warner's response: not guilty to six counts and a total of 74 individual charges involving custody hearings Warner presided over. 

The response states that the complaint filed against Warner is void because the AJIC lacked the proper jurisdiction to enter the complaint or take action against Warner. Not only that, the document states the complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

The majority of the charges against Warner allege the former judge failed to respect and comply with the law, failed to perform her duties impartially, failed to avoid impropriety and appearances of impropriety. The complaint also stated Judge Warner failed to conduct herself at all times in a matter that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of her judiciary and that she failed to disqualify herself in a proceedings in which her impartiality might reasonably be questioned and that she "acted in bad faith."

The original court documents show the 74 counts against the former judge in the civil complaint, and reveal that 27 of the 29 appeals from Judge Warner's decisions were overturned.

Warner's response states that the complaint filed against her is the product of fraud and was itself investigated and filed in "bad faith" by the AJIC. It goes on to say that the failure of the AJIC to follow any of its rules in its investigation of the charged against Warner constitutes prosecutorial misconduct and requires the dismissal of the complaint.
