BDN reports “The probate judge in Washington County was sanctioned Thursday by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court for failing to dispose promptly of cases.”
“Judges are paid by the counties but must abide by the state’s Code of Judicial Conduct.”
All judges must abide by the state’s Code of Judicial Conduct. Sounds like another “selective” process by Maine’s judicial system. How many of us have waited more than 30 days for a decision from the courts?
I would like Maine Supreme Court Chief Justice Leigh Saufley to justify the sanction against Judge Lyman Holmes when she and the Supreme Court justices have seriously violated the state’s Code of Judicial Conduct, violated state statutes, covered for criminal activity and have denied every single appeal I filed with the Maine Supreme Court. Have any of you had your appeal heard?
It is imperative that Governor Paul LePage include judicial reform in his list of reforms. First order of business, the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability. It is a direct conflict of interest to have judges sitting on this committee when, in all likelihood, they have been involved with the business brought before them.
Will the BDN or PPH report on this? Highly unlikely. However, the Clarion Edict will keep you posted.
