To the Editor:
Consider the following scenario.You are accused of violating the Trumbull Code of Ethics. You believe you acted in good faith and are prepared to defend yourself before the Trumbull Ethics Commission. Before your hearing, the person accusing you withdraws the complaint but the commission moves forward anyway. You issue a valid subpoena to the accuser whose testimony is critical. That person refuses to honor the subpoena and does not show up. The commission moves forward anyway and rules against you even though the complaint was withdrawn and you were unable to confront your accuser. Does this sound fair?
