Lawyers lent money to cover judge's gambling debts



It's not just Mississippi where you can find these sorts of entanglements: The Missouri Supreme Court has reprimanded four local lawyers for lending money to former Kansas City municipal judge Deborah Neal, who needed it for her gambling problem. The lawyers often practiced before Judge Neal, though no quid pro quo is alleged. Judge Neal was eventually convicted of mail fraud over gambling-related transactions.
