Nev. Judicial Discipline Commission rules Judge Catherine Ramsey can't run for re-election

The Nevada Judicial Discipline Commission barred North Las Vegas Judge Catherine Ramsey from running for re-election. The same committee also suspended Ramsey without pay for the last three months of her term.

The 8 News NOW I-Team has detailed the troubles of Judge Ramsey. On Wednesday, the Commission announced a settlement in which Ramsey admitted to wrongdoing and failing to maintain the dignity of her office.

The charges against Ramsey include amending multiple cases against the wishes of the city attorney's office and defense attornies along with making her staff run errands.
