Arkansas judge reprimanded after divorce case


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas district court judge has been reprimanded after he said he forgot about a divorce case that took him 20 months to rule on.

The Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission on Friday said Judge Edwin Keaton had agreed to a series of corrective actions. Keaton has agreed to conduct a quarterly docket review and take other steps to avoid delayed rulings.

The commission says the judicial district has stopped assigning him domestic relations cases.

The complaint was filed in 2013 by a man whose divorce was assigned to Keaton in 2011. Keaton says he misplaced the man's file after taking it home.

The commission says Keaton was open and candid about the issue and has been a beneficial contributor to the district.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 15, 2015) – Weekend storms and heavy rainfall caused damage and destruction across Arkansas. An EF2 tornado touched down in Nashville Sunday night killing two and destroying structures in its path. Meanwhile, high water is creating another set of problems for some Arkansans, with more rain set to hit the State this weekend.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued today's consumer alert to educate Arkansans about the steps to take if flood waters reach their home.

"Many of our friends and neighbors are cleaning up and are realizing the full scope of destruction," said Attorney General Rutledge. "Rivers across Arkansas are above flood levels, and if that water reaches structures, it will cause major damage. Consumers need to take the appropriate steps to recover their property and be aware of con artists who will attempt to take advantage during this difficult time."
