To the Editor:
In the Dec. 26, 2009–Jan. 1, 2010 issue, I was appalled to read (again) of Judge Mamiya’s lapse in judgment.
This story had been covered thoroughly by The Seattle Times as well as the Northwest Asian Weekly after it happened. But was it really necessary to rehash the whole event one more time in your paper? Surely, there are other stories of interest for you to present rather than bringing further embarrassment to him, his family, and associates.
I am disappointed, to say the least, that the Northwest Asian Weekly would be so uncharitable and act in such poor taste toward a respected and competent jurist.
