Attorney Floyd R. Baber of Rushville, MO; incompetent moron

 
The state of Missouri presented Floyd R. Baber with a law license in 1964.
 
For about 21 years, Floyd Baber was an Associate Circuit Court Judge in Buchanan County, Missouri.
 
During his tenure on the bench, the Missouri Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline filed an eleven-count ethics complaint against Floyd claiming he wasn’t competent to handle the duties of associate circuit judge. It further charged him with willful misconduct.
 
During its investigation of Floyd, the commission concluded that he lacked the requisite ability, legal qualifications, and fitness to sit as a judge. I thought this was a qualifier for a judgeship, didn’t you?
 
The commission went on to cite specific instances of Floyd’s incompetence and/or willful misconduct, which are:
  • Failure to take action on pending cases even after being warned by court clerks
  • Failing to follow the law in probate cases re: filing annual statements and holding required hearings
  • Provided ex parte legal advice to litigants who later appeared before him on same matter
  • Ordered defendants or wards of the court to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings even when they exhibited no symptoms of alcohol abuse or the underlying offense wasn’t alcohol related
  • Allowed a Michigan licensed attorney to illegally practice law in a probate case
As a consequence of his misconduct, the Supreme Court of Missouri ordered that Floyd be removed from his judicial office.
 
Despite finding that Floyd was incompetent; the Supreme Court took no action to have his law license voided.
 
As we speak (ca. March 2012) Incompetent Floyd practices law in the Rushville, Missouri area.
