to Force Lawyer to Testify Against His Client Mrs. Ghawji
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 8 LAWFUEL --
Rosine Ghawji, a woman who married a prominent Memphis doctor with ties to terrorism, has filed acomplaint before The Tennessee Court of the Judiciary (TCJ) swearing, under oath, that Judge Donna Fields of Circuit Court of Shelby County for the Thirteenth Judicial District at Memphis has grossly violated the Canons of Judicial Ethics.
Judge Fields is alleged to have allowed Mrs. Ghawji's local Tennessee counsel to withdraw, without good cause, during the Christmas holiday period, and just days before the trial, to prevent Mrs. Ghawji from effectively presenting her case.
To make matters even worse, after the trial began, Judge Fields put one ofMrs. Ghawji's out of state lawyers on the witness stand, who was simply there taking notes, but who could not participate as counsel in the day'sproceedings because he is not a Tennessee lawyer, and ordered him totestify about attorney client communications with Mrs. Ghawji.
To coerce the lawyer to testify Judge Fields threatened him with fabricated criminal charges of kidnapping based on the simple fact that the Ghawji children had not gone to school that day.
The attorney client privilege is the most sacrosanct of all client rights. This conduct by Judge Fields warrants the most severe punishment, Mrs. Ghawji argues in her complaint.
Mrs. Ghawji's private general counsel, out of state lawyer and JudicialWatch founder and past chairman Larry Klayman, who previously was excludedby Judge Fields from participating as trial counsel in the case. More....

I am not an attorney, but this just seems unbelievable to me. How is a judge able to get away with such impunity? This judge need to be removed from the bench and her law license suspended forever!
