According to AKC,  a  "Conflict of Interest" occurs, when  a judge "hires", 
(which is considered a "business agreement"): a handler to exhibit a dog 
owned by the judge and then puts that handler up within a 4 month PERIOD 
AFTER the BUSINESS AGREEMENT WAS REACHED  between the judge and handler. 
Perhaps it is best to call AKC, they are the ones that ruled, and find out 
why they ruled as they did.
There is much chatter but few have all the facts.  The  Board did it's best 
to protect everyone.
Those who had wins removed by AKC have letters FROM AKC TO THAT EFFECT. 
Those are the facts and can easily be verified.  Can YOU verify what you are 
sending out to this list?

Paulette --
   Your post is correct, but somewhere along the way, you missed the
problem.

   Read the rule again.  It says that the penalty is to be applied if the
handler shows to the judge AFTER HANDLING the judge's dog.  The club applied
the penalty claiming the rule applied to the judge if anyone who showed to
him or her had the audacity to handle for said judge AFTER SHOWING to him or
her.

     There is no such rule in the AKC, altho one was proposed earlier this
year.  If this rule were to be put into place, many judges, and not just GSD
judges, would quite judging.
