The issues presented by defense counsel :
(1) The Court did not have jurisdiction, as the defendant had not been dismissed from her position as a judge, and there was no order published confirming that act.
(2) The dismissal without prejudice of a prior case against this defendant operated as a bar to this action.
(3) The criminal charges are not valid.
The Defendant has entered a not guilty plea. Defense motions will be heard on May 31.
