How Judicial Misbehavior Skates in America

American Thinker:
By Brian Vukadinovich
We have a serious problem within the federal Judiciary in how it protects itself from malfeasance issues when people file judicial misconduct complaints against judges.

The Judicial Conduct and Disability Act allows “[a]ny person alleging that a judge has engaged in conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts” to file a complaint against the judge.  And then when a complaint is filed, everything simply goes out the window in terms of transparency and accountability — and yes, even the ultimate goal of justice, due to built-in rules designed to muzzle the public and prevent an actual meaningful proceeding.  

First, there is a law dictating that with a few exceptions, all papers, documents, and records of proceedings relating to judicial misconduct complaints shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed by any person in any proceeding.  In other words, when a person has information about judicial corruption done by a federal judge, once that person files a complaint against that judge, that person cannot make any public statements about the judicial malfeasance.  This law seems to be in substantial conflict with the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which expressly prevents the government from making laws that abridge the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press.   more

  1. Laws don’t matter when you are a member of the “correct” political party!
    Corollary: The application of the law gets very selective with one party rule!
    Corollary 2: Laws don’t matter when there is no enforcement!

    Welcome to the New Communism of the 21st Century.

  2. Speaking of which, let’s talk about the Ghislaine Maxwell trial. Comey’s daughter is the judge presiding – and Schumer has already pushed her for a federal judgeship. No bias here!

  3. For those reading who only grasp English (American, Pidgin, etc.) by machine translation, to ONE functioning brain cell… You are correct! By design is NEVER “mis-” anything. It is NOT a “mistake”. It is NOT “misbehavior”. It is NOT “misjudged”. Is is accomplishing the task by design. According to plan. As intended.

    As for the rest of you… I have no idea what your excuse is.

  4. Same with professional licensing boards. They exist to protect the guilty and incompetent. The only way they will ever pull someone’s license is if they kill a family member of the political establishment or embarrass a politician

  5. “When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you – you know your nation is doomed.”
    ― Ayn Rand

  6. Hyenas protect each other, too.
    When the bulk of any group is rotten and corrupt, it’s in the best interests of the group to circle the wagons, so to speak. Even if there are a few honest ones in the mix, they’ll defend the group to their last breath.
    The House, the Senate, the Judiciary, LE, Unions – fairly prevalent.

    Some sort of tribalism, I suspect.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …
