The Journal of the Judiciary of Minas Gerais this Wednesday (24) reported that Judge Ludmila Lins Grilo, holder of the Criminal and Childhood and Youth Court of the region of Unaí, a city in the Northwest region of Minas Gerais, was compulsorily retired. The decree is a response to an administrative disciplinary process initiated in September 2022.
The magistrate had already been away from her duties since February 14 of this year, when the National Council of Justice (CNJ) decided to open two administrative disciplinary proceedings against her. According to the CNJ, there were signs of negligence in the management of the criminal court that was under her responsibility.

According to the report of the national justice inspector, Minister Luís Felipe Salomão, presented to the CNJ, the judge did not fulfill her basic duties, failing to attend the Forum even though telecommuting was denied by the Court of Justice of Minas Gerais (TJMG). This posture resulted in negligence in the functioning of the notary and in the inspection of the acts of its subordinates.
Damage to thousands of people
The judge was already the subject of an inquiry at the TJMG about procedural delays, lack of responses to the local internal affairs department, in addition to absence during office hours. According to a report by the Extraordinary Correction of the Corregedoria Nacional de Justiça, 1,291 processes paralyzed in the notary were identified, and six physical processes were located in the magistrate’s office awaiting sentence for more than 100 days, two of them for more than a year .
In the electronic judicial process (PJe), 103 unfinished processes were found for sentencing, including the action of the arrested defendant waiting for more than five months.

The report also identified 23 processes at a standstill awaiting dispatch for over a year, 17 processes at a standstill for over a thousand days and a total of 1160 processes unduly paralyzed for over 100 days.
Inactive at work, active on networks
A conservative and follower of Olavo de Carvalho, the late far-right guru, the judge would also be adopting a behavior in her social networks that is incompatible with her functional duties as a magistrate, as reported by the National Council of Justice (CNJ) in September 2022.
On her Twitter profile, with more than 300,000 followers, the judge made, in 2021 – amid the covid-19 pandemic – several posts encouraging the non-use of masks and crowding.
In the judge’s network, severe criticism of the decisions of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) and Justices Alexandre de Moraes and Luís Roberto Barroso were common, as well as participation in interview programs for this purpose.

In the interpretation of the CNJ, the magistrate continuously infringed articles 35 and 36 of the Organic Law of the National Judiciary (Loman), which determine that the magistrate must enforce official acts, in addition to being forbidden to express himself, by any means of communication , opinion on proceedings pending judgment or disparaging judgment on orders, votes or sentences by judicial bodies.

Ludmila would also have disrespected the Code of Ethics of the National Judiciary, especially regarding the media. Article 12 determines that the magistrate must “behave in a prudent and equitable manner”.
Political lectures, in which the judge participated and disseminated on her networks, are also expressly prohibited by article 95 of the Federal Constitution. “Single paragraph. Judges are prohibited from: dedicating themselves to party-political activity”.
In September last year, Ludmila Lins had her networks blocked by Minister Alexandre de Moraes.
