Question Judge Who Smoked Pot At Concert Back In Court

Judge Who Smoked Pot At Concert Back In Court
Official Completes Rehab Program
Posted: 9:00 a.m. EST December 16, 2002


A Traverse City judge who admitted to smoking pot at a Rolling Stones concert in October returns to the bench today.
District Judge Thomas Gilbert had been on voluntary leave since the Nov. 6 incident at Ford Field.

Gilbert has completed a 28-day alcohol rehabilitation program.

For now, Gilbert will only hear civil cases. In a few weeks, he'll begin hearing criminal cases, but none involving alcohol or marijuana.

An Elk Rapids woman reportedly spotted the 45-year-old Gilbert puffing on a marijuana cigarette as it passed along a row of people at the concert.

Gilbert later issued a statement in which he apologized for "this error in judgment."

A Traverse City judge who admitted marijuana use to return to bench


(Traverse City-AP, December 16, 2002, 7:05 a.m.) A Traverse City judge who admitted smoking marijuana at a Rolling Stones concert is scheduled to begin hearing cases Monday. District Judge Thomas Gilbert has been on voluntary leave since November sixth. He was in a 28 day alcohol rehabilitation program.

Gilbert will hear only civil cases such as small claims and landlord-tenant disputes in his first week back. After a two week vacation, he'll begin hearing criminal cases but not those involving drunken driving or marijuana.

Gilbert has called the incident at the October 12th concert in Detroit the stupidest thing he's ever done. Both the local bar association and the Antrim County Board of Commissioners have called for Gilbert's resignation.

People would be surprise that there are many people in power who smoke pot.
