The sad saga of former millionaire Marie Long who is now destitute continues, but now it involves other players in the affair. The Maricopa County Superior Court is not sure how to handle allegations that Judge pro tem Lindsay Ellis may have done something improper in connection with the Marie Long case in her court.
Arizona Republic: “A Maricopa County Superior Court judge on Monday questioned whether he has the authority to determine if another judge violated conduct rules when she sent a draft of a key ruling to lawyers for only one party in an ongoing case. . . . Superior Court Judge Robert Budoff suspended the probate case of Scottsdale resident Marie Long, in which Ellis had ruled that a group of caregivers and attorneys were justified in collecting nearly $800,000 from Long’s estate.”
