Ousted Nebraska judge claims anti-white bias

July 29, 1998
An ousted judge who admitted signing papers ``Adolf Hitler'' and tossing firecrackers in a colleague's office says the real reason he was removed from office was that he's fat, diabetic, white and a Christian.
     Former Douglas County Judge Richard ``Deacon'' Jones filed a discrimination complaint Tuesday with the state Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. If it is not resolved by the commission within six months, Jones' attorney said, a discrimination lawsuit will be filed.
