The chief judge of Wisconsin's Ninth Judicial District has disciplined the Lincoln County clerk of courts, Cindy Kimmons, for inappropriate conduct in which Kimmons placed an offensive personal note in a woman's case file impugning that woman's character.
The incident involved a paternity case. At one point, the woman had sought to negotiate a payment plan for an outstanding debt to the court, and had sent a letter to the clerk's office asking for such an arrangement instead of the clerk's intercept of a state tax refund.
An office employee attached a Post-it note to the letter - "Cindy, what do you want me to do with this?" - and forwarded it to Kimmons. The clerk's handwritten response, also on a Post-it note and then attached to the letter in the case file, included far more than just a decision on the request for a payment plan.
