- allowed to proceed with cases;
- continued to drink herself to delirium and incompetence;
- was sued by her own magistrate judge for being mentally incompetent after the magistrate who "coincidentally" had the power of attorney to handle Judge Minaldi's affairs (why would that be necessary?) reportedly figured out that Judge Minaldi's 30-year-junior live-in boy-toy Justin Gray
- taken off cases; and
- swiftly put into a rehab.
She was reportedly not given a sobriety test, not issued an open alcohol container citation, and was not charged with a felony.
Now, she is dragged by the court system out of rehab, which was obviously badly needed for her, in order to prop her up to the point of her being able to see that she is good to go and to deny her obvious and already publicized alcohol psychosis diagnosis.
Yet, trying to conceal a medical condition and trying to continue to function when a person, especially a federal judge, cannot be functioning, is not doing Judge Minaldi any good healthwise.
And, it is obviously not doing the public any good.
Medical and mental health records and medications of public officials in whose hands are life-changing decisions of a lot of people, should be public.
We have a right to know about the health of a federal judge the same way as we have a right to know about the health of this country's President.
We have a right to know whether our judges are competent and coherent before they deteriorate to the point when they:
- start stalking people like former NY Chief Judge Sol Wachtler, dressed as a Texan private eye,
- get wandering around in cars on highways and then get lost in the woods like federal judge in Pennsylvania Edwin Kosyk;
- get dumped as a sack of potatoes at a rehab, and fleeced of her money, by live-in 3-decades-younger boy-toys.
