Life A Judgment Call

If you were at a conference and you “used profanity, made an obscene gesture in response to a request to lower [your] voice, and referred to Clark County’s group facilitator as “the black gay guy,’” and then after the meeting’s facilitator said, “Clark County gets a star,” you quipped, “I don’t need a star. I’m not a Jew,” wouldn’t you insist that you were shit-face drunk at the time?
Not Clark County Superior Court Judge John Wulle. He did all that and more at a training conference, and he insists that he wasn’t drunk at the time—despite witnesses stating that they smelled alcohol on his breath.
Wulle has been censored by the state Commission on Judicial Conduct and must undergo seven whole hours of racial, religious, sexual-orientation and diversity training. And he wants us all to know—particularly any racial, religious, or sexual minorities that may come before him—that he’s very, very sorry…
Wulle said Friday he will use the incident as a learning experience. “It was never my intent to offend anyone, and I apologize to anyone who was offended,” he said.
