Yet another Charge of Insensitivity for Judge Sanctioned Previously for Wearing Blackface
By Beatrice Boop May 14, 2008
A Louisiana judge sanctioned for wearing blackface at a Halloween party could face discipline in another case, this time over comments he made to a woman seeking a restraining order against her husband.
Five years ago, Judge Theodore Edridge of Houma was suspended for six months and ordered to take a sociology course because he dressed as an inmate for Halloween while wearing an Afro-type wig and black makeup, the Associated Press reports.
In the latest incident, recorded on audiotape, Edridge refused a restraining order sought by Eula Belle Washington, calling her petition “crap,” the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. In the March 2007 hearing, Edridge said Washington's husband, George, had not abused her or his children. "Heat, big smoke, but no fire,” Edridge said. “Dismissed. You want a divorce, get a divorce. You're not getting a TRO. See y'all later."
He also congratulated Washington's husband, George Washington, XII for threatening to make his 2-year-old daughter's "booty bleed" if she didn't behave herself at a Subway restaurant. “Can't you find a better place to eat than that?" Edridge asked.
When interviewed, Judge Edridge, who is almost dead, said, "Every woman needs a good pounding now and then, to keep her in line. I got that from a judge in New York and I been looking for a chance to use it ever since. I think that's one of the funniest things I ever heard," said the 96 year-old judge, who must be wheeled in and out of the courtroom on a hospital gurney, by a hospice worker assigned to "keep him alive" because no substitute judge is available at the present time.
