What a sad day for the law profession when a judge can take his ball and go home. Only in Lake County does a judge get away with such childish actions.

If he thought he deserved this position, why did he not apply through the merit selection process, which is the law in Indiana? This is exactly why the merit selection process was imposed, to stop this kind of treatment and to not allow favors.

Judge Nicholas Schiralli should step down if he cannot be an impartial judge and try cases assigned to his court.

Why doesn't Schiralli just step down so another judge can act appropriately, and resolve cases that have been pending in his court for more than two years now?

And we wonder why the American people are so disenchanted with our court system.
