In an article published on April 7, 2016, David Aughtry discusses the indictment of former U.S. Tax Court Judge Diane L. Kroupa on tax evasion charges. Aughtry is skeptical of the charges against Kroupa. He knows Kroupa personally, having argues cases before her at the Tax Court and having seen her at tax conferences. “Judges are vulnerable to being railroaded,” Aughtry explained. “Sometimes they are held to strict liability standards when the rest of us would get a pass.”
