Criminal Judges Have Poor Relations with Their Bosses

Rinus Otte, a Judge who will next week inaugurate his professorship in the organization of justice has just published a book: The New Clothes of the Judge. He claims that judges increasingly show unprofessional behavior, in particular when appointments are made. This expresses itself in email campaigns, anonymous letters and gossip. The courts are poorly organized and the relationship between judges and their colleagues who administer courts are getting worse. Otte says that it is virtually impossible to remove poorly functioning judges and that this has to be remedied. He considers the situation one of stagnation and decay.
