Committee Adopts Articles of Impeachment Against Judge

House Committee Adopts Articles of Impeachment Against Federal Judge
The Legal Times by David Ingram - January 27, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC - The House Judiciary Committee voted unanimously today to adopt two articles of impeachment against U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr., accusing the judge of misconduct over three decades. It was poised to adopt two additional articles after a late-morning break. Porteous, who has refused to resign, would be the eighth federal judge ever removed from the bench if the full House of Representatives impeaches him and the Senate convicts him. He has been a judge in the Eastern District of Louisiana since 1994 but is not currently hearing cases because of the ethics questions surrounding him. This is the second time in as many years that the House has taken action against a federal judge. In June, the House impeached U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent of the Southern District of Texas, who had pleaded guilty to obstructing an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment. It was the first impeachment of a federal judge since 1989. Kent resigned before the Senate began his trial. The four articles of impeachment cover a wide variety of allegations against Porteous: First, that he should have recused from a 1997 case because he had, while a state judge, accepted cash from a law firm involved in the case; Second, that he corruptly accepted meals, trips and other gifts from a bailbondsman while Porteous was a state judge; Third, that he lied during his personal bankruptcy case from 2001 to 2004 by, among other things, concealing assets; and Fourth, that he misled the Senate by not revealing his allegedly corrupt activity during the 1994 confirmation process. “Judge Porteous demonstrates a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with the trust and confidence placed in him as a federal judge,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who chaired the House task force that investigated Porteous. Porteous’ lawyer, Richard Westling of the Washington office of Ober, Kaler, Grimes & Shriver, has said that the House should not consider Porteous’ conduct as a state judge. And, Westling has said, the U.S. Department of Justice declined to bring a case against Porteous, citing multiple complications with a potential trial.

Olny took then 3 decades to get him of the bench. that is why they can not work at prosecuting thier own. In the real world you can not wait 30 years to doing something.
The answer i want to know if how many people had a loss because of the guys incompetence? How much of thier lives were destroyed because of this guy?

It's time for NY to remove our corrupt judges. We begin when the governor directs the AG under Executive Law § 63. General duties. The attorney-general shall: 8. Whenever in his judgment the public interest requires it, the attorney-general may, with the approval of the governor, and when directed by the governor, shall, inquire into matters concerning the public peace, public safety and public justice, to convene a grand jury to examine the conduct of Chief Judge Lippman and Judge Ramos and for indictments or informations to be considered.

The government politicians that MUST be continuously scrutinized and criticized...are the JUDICIAL ROBES OF THIS COUNTRY!

This justice entity has had the privilege of being protected from all insight and accountability into their rulings, behavior and political connections for decades...by the entire American media, corporations, banking industry, as well as all the other federal and state governemnt agencies in existence... to the massive detriment and complete annihilation of all constitutional rights of the CITIZENS OF THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY.

I applaud President Obama for "calling out" the Supreme Court of the United States in his State of The Union Speech!

The President is a true hero for that action...and remains popular for that comment with everyone I know.

The courts(state and federal) have gotten away with dark robe misconduct and big money decisions..... way too long and their behavior as American "civil servants" has morphed into positons of entitlment, that finds many of them ruling against the average citizen on issues where the "judiciary" is the only means for the citizens to obtain relief against the government or corporations.

These judges are ruling as ultimate saviors of corporate government America...against all oathes that have been sworn to abide by!

The President's statement was a key and potent comment that hopefully should and will instill in all Americans, the immediate need to address all of our judicial branches to ... shorten "all" their term limits to 5 years... investigate the multiple rulings that sidestep the law(happening everyday in federal and state courts) and their clandestine closeness to political parties and the funds from those parties that are distrubted to their family and friends, through jobs and a multitude of 3rd party deals and backdoor income for the judges themselves.

The people are the victims that must become the victorious!

This comment is meant for ALL AMERICAN JUDICIAL BRANCHES....THE US SUPREME COURT MOST SIGNIFICANTLY!
