The state Supreme Court's Disciplinary Board has recommended that West Chester lawyer Robert B. Surrick be privately reprimanded for publicly discussing some aspects of a confidential investigation of Supreme Court Justice Rolf Larsen. Surrick, who was a member of the Judicial Inquiry and Review Board when it investigated Larsen, said he will ask the Supreme Court to dismiss the recommendation for a private reprimand because he did not do "anything improper. " A private reprimand is the mildest discipline that can be imposed on a lawyer and would in no way restrict the lawyer's right to practice.

A special prosecutor hired to investigate complaints against the Winslow Township Police Department has been asked to look into why the police chief issued a formal reprimand to an officer who, while off-duty, had captured a man who had just committed a stabbing. Police Chief Gary Stowell issued a formal reprimand three months ago to police Officer Thomas Alston 10 months after Alston, while off-duty, captured Kevin James Dyer on Wildwood's Boardwalk. Special prosecutor John W. Trimble, who was hired in March by the Winslow Township Committee, would only say last week that he had received the Alston case but would not comment on its content.

The House yesterday voted overwhelmingly to reprimand Pennsylvania Democrat Austin J. Murphy after its ethics committee found that he permitted another person to vote in his name, diverted governmental property to private use and paid a no-show employee. In a 324-68 vote, with 20 members voting "present," the House accepted the committee's recommendation for a reprimand despite heated contention by Murphy that he was not guilty of any of the charges. It was the first time since 1984, when Idaho Republican George Hansen was reprimanded for failure to disclose financial dealings, that the House has disciplined one of its own. The reprimand is the least severe penalty among punishments the House could have imposed, which include censure, loss of seniority and expulsion.

A two-star Air Force general who reportedly ridiculed President Clinton in public is likely to receive a written reprimand that will effectively end his career, according to published reports. The Pentagon confirmed yesterday that an investigation of the incident has been completed and two newspapers said it confirmed that Maj. Gen. Harold Campbell called Clinton a "pot-smoking," "womanizing" and "draft- dodging" commander in chief at a service awards dinner in the Netherlands on May 24. The New York Times and the Washington Post report in today's editions that Lt. Gen. Dale W. Thompson, vice commander of the Air Force Materiel Command, confirmed the essence of the reports while on an investigative trip to the Netherlands that ended last Friday.

WASHINGTON - The House on Thursday voted to reprimand Rep. Laura Richardson (D., Calif.), for ethical misconduct. Richardson agreed to the uncommon discipline, including paying a $10,000 fine out of her own pocket. "I do take these findings very seriously and do accept the responsibility," she said on the House floor. The House Ethics Committee unanimously recommended the punishment, saying Richardson improperly pressured her congressional staff to work on her campaign, used taxpayer-funded resources for personal and political activities, and obstructed the investigation.

The House ethics committee recommended yesterday that Rep. Austin J. Murphy (D., Pa.) be reprimanded for allowing others to cast his votes, for paying a salary to a "ghost employee" and for misuse of government property. Murphy, who maintained he was innocent of the allegations, asserted that the proceeding was unfair and said yesterday that he would take his fight to the House floor. The House, which could vote on the recommendation tomorrow, last disciplined one of its own in 1984 when it reprimanded George W. Hansen, a Republican from Idaho, for failure to disclose financial dealings.

For the third time in six months, Earl Stout, president of Philadelphia's biggest municipal union, has been formally reprimanded for violating the union's constitution. In a 14-page ruling, a three-member judicial panel of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in Washington said Stout violated union bylaws last fall by unilaterally cutting off an alcohol treatment benefit plan for his members. The judicial panel could have removed Stout as president of AFSCME District Council 33 but instead issued a formal reprimand.

The House ethics committee yesterday announced its recommendation that Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.) be reprimanded, making him the latest lawmaker to face discipline by a Congress increasingly intent on cleaning up the behavior of its members. The panel unanimously recommended that Frank, an acknowledged homosexual, be reprimanded for actions he took on behalf of male prostitute Stephen L. Gobie. Rep. Julian C. Dixon (D., Calif.), chairman of the ethics panel, said the 12-member committee voted unanimously to recommend that Frank be reprimanded on allegations that he fixed 33 parking tickets for Gobie with District of Columbia authorities and that he misled a Virginia state's attorney in a memo seeking favorable treatment for Gobie in a probation proceeding.

The state Supreme Court yesterday delivered a mildly worded reprimand to Justice Rolf Larsen for creating "an appearance of impropriety" by discussing a pending case with a lower court judge. The reprimand, approved on a 2-1 vote last Oct. 14, is the first to be imposed on a high court justice since the provision for such punishment was included in the 1968 state constitution. It was not officially given to Larsen and spread upon the court record until yesterday. Approval of the reprimand triggered the biggest crisis in the court's modern history - Larsen's accusation that the two justices who voted to punish him were "fix artists" who engaged in criminal conduct.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on Tuesday said it had reprimanded the director of its Philadelphia benefits office and proposed cutting her pay by 10 percent to punish her for arranging her own transfer to the job in 2014. The proposed penalties against Diana Rubens were among several disciplinary actions the VA announced, stemming from internal investigations. Rubens took over the Philadelphia office in 2014 but was removed after allegations surfaced that she improperly forced the previous director out so she could take his job, which would place her closer to family.

The New Jersey Supreme Court has reprimanded Thomas J. Scattergood, a former municipal judge who served in various Burlington County towns, for downgrading traffic tickets for acquaintances instead of recusing himself, and for making sexist and undignified remarks at several court hearings. The court also barred Scattergood from holding future judicial office, saying in a 30-page presentment last week that his conduct had "undermined the public's confidence . . . in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.

GLASSBORO An appellate court on Tuesday upheld the dismissal of a complaint by a Glassboro police officer who contended he should have been given notice and a hearing before a written reprimand by his superior. The court, affirming a trial court's rejection of David B. Burns' claim, cited state law that specifically requires such process for suspension, removal, fines, and reduction in rank. Thomas Cushane, the attorney for the now-retired officer, said the matter provides an opportunity to address a legislative void.

John Doerffel never thought his clothes would land him in the internal suspension room for a half-day, but that's what happened to the William Tennent High School senior this week. On Wednesday, Doerffel, 19, was wearing a black T-shirt he said he had worn to the Warminster school dozens of times. On the back, it has a picture of an M-16 rifle surrounded by barbed wire, bullets, and the words "Peace Through Superior Firepower. " Doerffel, who plans to join the Marines after graduation, said an assistant principal told him the shirt violated the school's dress code.

D EAR ABBY: I work in a skilled-care facility. I am also preparing for law school. Today one of my co-workers humiliated me in the presence of others by asking if I have been gaining weight. I giggled and said, "Probably. " She proceeded to say that I have gained "a lot" of weight in my "fat face" and told me to get on the scale so she could see how much. I told her it's none of her business. She has done this to me and other co-workers before. Our supervisor likes her and doesn't reprimand her. How should I handle this?

IN A CONTEST over a humble lunch counter in Reading Terminal Market, the U.S. Olympic Committee won't win a gold medal for sprinting. Three decades after it burst from the starting block, the Greek eatery Olympic Gyro has received a cease-and-desist email from the USOC, the nonprofit corporation responsible for training and funding U.S. teams. The June 7 notice demanded deletion of the word "Olympic" from the food shop's title, claiming copyright of the word under a 1978 law. Congress granted the USOC all commercial use of Olympic imagery and terminology in the nation, including the word "Olympic" and the symbol of five interlocked rings.

Lugar residency issue resolved Sen. Richard Lugar (R., Ind.) has resolved a dispute over his state residency that threatened to keep him from voting for himself in the May 8 Republican primary. A local court helped work out a settlement between Lugar and the Marion County Election Board that will let him vote if he changes his voter registration address to a family farm in the state, the six-term senator's campaign committee said in a statement Friday. The Democratic-dominated election board said on March 15 that Lugar and his wife, who live in northern Virginia, were not eligible to vote in the county because they registered with the Indianapolis address of a home he sold in 1977.
