Hard to believe, but a judge ‘"friended" a lawyer on Facebook.  The lawyer was appearing before the judge in a case.  The judge in North Carolina would respond to comments from the lawyer about the case.   See story as reported by Delaware Employment Law Blog.   Yea, I would call that "ex parte" communication with a party to a lawsuit.  Which, BTW, is pretty much unethical…..

At some point, the lawyer even responded to one of the judge’s responses as "wise judge."  Sheesh…..
