Judge Adams Suspended
(CNN) - Judge William Adams, who made national headlines after the release of a 2004 video of him beating his then-teenage daughter, has been suspended by the Texas Supreme Court.

The reason for the action was not mentioned in an order of suspension that was made public Tuesday.

Adams, a court-at-law judge in Aransas County, was roundly criticized when his now-adult daughter posted online a video of him beating her with a belt when she was 16.

1. Outstanding
I don't believe in karma, but sometimes some sort of universal justice finds a way.

2. Thank god.
There's no way that guy should sit on a bench, especially a family court bench.

4. Absolutely!
It's a little hypocritical for him to be doling out judgment on other parents, isn't it? Glad he got at least a little comeuppance!
