Panel: Dayton judge violated rules
(AP) – A Nevada judicial panels says a Dayton judge violated campaign rules, but without intent.
In a ruling Friday, the Committee on Judicial Ethics and Election Practices said Justice of the Peace Camille Vecchiarelli improperly listed the address and telephone number of the Dayton Justice Court on her campaign blog.
During a hearing last month, she said the information was taken from a biography she had prepared for a judicial conference, and her daughter added it to her campaign blog.
She removed the information when it was brought to her attention on Aug. 18.
The ruling said there was no evidence Vecchiarelli gained an unfair advantage from the listing, and no sanctions were imposed.
A complaint was filed with the ethics panel by Jason Luis, who is running against the judge.
