Ask the Model Code: What do I do if I see or overhear sexual harassment in my court?

January 18th, 2018|

Dear Model Code:

News of sexual harassment in the workplace—including the judiciary—has swept the nation. I’m thankful I’ve never witnessed or overheard sexual harassment in my courtroom, but this has me feeling unprepared for what to do if I did.

I don’t seem to remember what the Model Code dictates on this issue. Any help here?

Sincerely,

Hon. Wantstostay Vigilant
