Reuters Special Report: Thousands of U.S. judges who broke laws, oaths remained on the bench
Jul 3, 2020 —
Sharing this Reuters Special Report by Michael Berens and John Shiffman. It is worth noting that the only NYS Supreme Court Judge to be impeached was George G. Barnard in 1872 even though the process of impeachment is outlined in the NYS Constitution, we have just stopped holding them accountable.
No one is above the law, not even judges...
A state judge is a state judicial officer, paid by the State to act impartially and lawfully. A judge is not the court. People v. Zajic, 88 Ill.App.3d 477, 410 N.E.2d 626 (1980). Once they have violated federal and state laws they need to be held accountable in order to protect the integrity of our Courts. Please read, sign and share this petition and thank you to all who have already done so.
