Tutor description

While in law school, you are doing an internship as a judge’s clerk. You are working at your desk, and the judge is in his office talking to one of the state’s attorneys. You overhear the discussion regarding one of the defendants whose case will be heard in his courtroom today. You heard the judge making comments about the defendant’s character, saying “What a lowlife this guy is.” Knowing that all the cases being heard today will have a bench trial, meaning the judge will rule on the person’s guilt or innocence, what should you do? Justify your answer based on sound moral judgment, values, and consequences of actions, using an ethical decision-making process. Provide constructive feedback to your classmates’ posts, and be sure to respect the views and choices that they present.
