Former Ohio judges shouldn't still be using the title of judge.
That's the opinion of the disciplinary arm of the Ohio Supreme Court.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that an advisory opinion issued by the court Monday said that with a few exceptions, a former judge should not continue to use the judicial title.
The written opinion says social etiquette suggesting "once a judge, always a judge" is "misplaced in modern American legal and judicial ethics."
Ohio voters rejected the first issue on the statewide ballot yesterday. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler has details.
