Ghosts of Make Believe 2nd Circuit Ethics Oversight Surfaces

Chatigny Officially Out As 2nd Circuit Nominee
The Connecticut Law Tribune - January 6, 2011

President Barack Obama on Wednesday re-nominated the vast majority of judicial nominees who were not confirmed at the end of 2010. But one previous nominee is not among them: Connecticut District Judge Robert Chatigny for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. Chatigny faced heated Republican opposition because of his involvement in events that preceded the 2005 execution of serial killer Michael Ross. During a conference call, Chatigny threatened the law license of a defense lawyer who was instructed by Ross to end all appeals and hasten the execution. The threat prompted an ethics inquiry, though a panel of three other federal judges cleared Chatigny. An assistant who answered the telephone at Chatigny’s chambers in U.S. District Court in Hartford read a statement attributed to the judge: “It was an honor to be nominated to the Court of Appeals, and I’m deeply grateful to everyone who supported my nomination.”


Guessing there's no complaints said...

You know, you don't hear much from the 2nd Circuit ethics committee. I don't think they've posted anything in years about their special friends.

Chatigny is a decent judge. He was only trying to do the right thing and got screwed.

A judge's ethics panel in the second circuit? They're still using that old joke? I can hear it now,"He, who is ethical, cast the first stone. Case dismissed." A decent judge would speak out against rampant corruption.
