The website at the centre of the dispute KentOnline, reports that Recorder Jason Dunn-Shaw, of Maidstone Chambers in Kent, used a pseudonym to call commenters “donkeys” and “trolls”.
He accused others of being “narrow-minded and bigoted” – and also complained “lots of warty fingers at work here” in response to comments he disapproved of.
In a statement from the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office, a spokesperson said:
“Recorder Jason Dunn-Shaw was subject to a conduct investigation for using a pseudonym to post comments (some of which were abusive) on a newspaper website about a case in which he had been a judge and another in which he had been a barrister.
