Dear Editor:
Thanks to Judge Keener for her balanced perspective and for setting the record straight on the tenure of Immigration Judges. I have had the pleasure of being in Judge Keener's courtroom in San Francisco on several occasions, and she exhibits the epitome of courtroom sensitivity. The system is obviously seriously flawed if it took an outraged, independent third party (witness/physician) who was not part of the political web of judges and lawyers, and therefore had nothing to lose, to bring Judge Ragno to justice. This may be an isolated incident in the sense that it is one judge in one District, whose inappropriate conduct should not reflect poorly on the scores of conscientious judges throughout the country. However, it remains to be seen whether it is an isolated incident of misconduct or a pattern of misconduct unreported over a long period of time. Therefore, in place of all the media hype I'd like to see more thought given to the process by which an unfit judge is removed from the bench.

SJD
