Above the Law calls attention to this Cincinnati Enquirer story about a 17-year long divorce battle between two law school professors, Christo Lassiter, a law professor at the University of Cincinnati, and Sharlene Boltz, a law professor at Northern Kentucky University’s Chase College of Law:
The filings have included Boltz calling the police to Lassiter’s workplace several times; both having and then losing custody of their two children, now ages 20 and 17. It also involves several complaints by judges presiding over the case that the law professors, who they say should know the rules of the courts, repeatedly violated those rules.
The latest judge handling the case couldn't resist a rebuke:
(B)oth parties ought to be admonished by the State Bar of Ohio. Both are law professors and officers of the Court. Each has a duty to behave in a proper manner, particularly with regard to legal filings, and each has more than pushed the envelope with regard to abusing the court system. It is frightening to this Court that either is teaching current law students the boundaries and ethics of our profession. Both should be thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed of their behavior.
And yes, there is a Michigan connection. Both are University of Michigan Law grads.
