A Yellowstone County judge whose misconduct case sparked public input from hundreds of Montanans is being suspended without pay for 30 days.
District Judge Ashley Haradas month away from the office will begin May 1, according to the order from the Montana Supreme Court.
In the order, signed by six of the seven justices, Chief Justice Mike McGrath said the misconduct was a serious violation of the public trust.
"They manifest a flagrant disregard and threat to the rule of law and public confidence in the independence, impartiality, and integrity of our judicial system, the order said.

In admitting the counts, Harada acknowledges she made a misstatement while under oath, made a false or misleading statement about a law school applicant because of a personal grievance, and inflated her legal credentials, among other allegations.
Justice Ingrid Gustafson, a former Yellowstone County district judge, did not participate in the consideration of the case.No reason was given.
In other words, she Lied under Oath. Shouldnt she be in Jail?
“...Harada and her attorney, retired Judge Russell Fagg...”
you fire/remove her
not a 30 day time-out
they think we’re idiots
Sounds like a power-hungry b**ch who shouldn’t be on the bench, or even practicing law.
Bearing false witness to further a grudge is a very bad look for a lawyer.
Suspended for one month?
Ben Dover wasn’t available.
Or Phil McCracken...
Democrats don't go to jail.
That right there signals she a leftist. There’s no such crime as perjury to them
I’m hard pressed to think of ANY judge who doesn’t richly deserve the same (at a minimum)
She needs to be disbarred. Not fit to be a lawyer.
She is a republican
Doesn’t make any difference....a lying bottom feeding lawyer regardless of politics.
My response was correcting someone who said she was a democrat.
OK. My mistake. She is a RINO.
Why cant we make this a common occurrence through out this nation. Ruling from the bench, your fired
Innocent or guilty? YOU BE THE JUDGE!
Just imagine Johnny Cash singing, Yes, it's a drag, it's quite a tough tag, but boy, NEVER NOT EVER keep the FAGG!
