Dig this!

So today I was digging around on the CSAC website trying to find some forms which I did not. But I did come across something a bit interesting that I figured i’d share. So after a few searches I found what I thought was the document I was looking for, but what it turned out was to be a docket for a CSAC hearing. Well at the top of page 2 I saw a familiar name…..  Gene Lebell! But the odd part was it was listed under Possible action against judge’s license.

So a few more clicks and I found a docket from a June 2011 hearing roughly two months after the original hearing.  So it seems that the initial complaint stemmed from a mix up between the red and blue corner due to the fact that the judge’s were not informed that the party’s had swapped corners. The document also sounds as if the fighters did not have colored wrist tapes on their gloves to distinguish one another. This is an honest mistake that could be easily made at regional or amateur shows where the judge’s are unfamiliar with the local talent. Long story short Judo Gene was cleared on all charges!
