Judges From High-Profile Drug Cases Suspended

Mexico suspends, probes judges of key drug cases
The Associated Press by Adriana Gomez Licon  -  June 2, 2012

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican court authorities have suspended two federal judges who presided over high-profile drug cases, saying investigators are looking into possible irregularities involving the jurists.  The Federal Judiciary Council said Friday evening that it was temporarily relieving appellate Judge Jesus Guadalupe Luna and district Judge Efrain Cazares of their duties, but its statement didn't describe the allegations being investigated. The Attorney General's Office declined to comment Saturday. Both judges have taken part in cases involving well-known people with alleged ties to Mexico's drug business.  In April 2008, Luna ordered the release of the son of purported Sinaloa drug cartel chief Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. Ivan Archivaldo Guzman Salazar had been sentenced by a lower court to five years in prison for money laundering, but the appellate judge ruled that there was no proof the money he used to open two bank accounts came from drug trafficking and that being the son of the infamous capo wasn't grounds for imprisonment.  Last summer, Luna upheld a lower court ruling that cleared Sandra Avila Beltran of organized-crime charges despite efforts by Mexico and the U.S. to prosecute the woman nicknamed "Queen of the Pacific." Avila is wanted on a 2004 U.S. indictment as a suspect tied to the seizure of more than nine tons of U.S.-bound cocaine on Mexico's west coast.  A judge acquitted Avila in December 2010 of charges stemming from that drug confiscation, and Luna backed that decision by citing a lack of evidence. U.S. authorities have sought extradition of Avila, a niece of Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, known as "the godfather" of Mexican drug smuggling, but that has been rejected twice by other judges on grounds she shouldn't be prosecuted in the U.S. on charges that have been dismissed in Mexico. The other suspended judge, Cazares, has been accused by Mexico's government of ignoring credible evidence when he released some of the mayors detained in a mass arrest of officials in the western state of Michoacan in 2009. The federal attorney general alleged the officials had ties to the La Familia drug gang, and prosecutors filed a complaint against Cazares saying he improperly acquitted the officials. With all of the officials freed by various judges, the crackdown became one of the most embarrassing episodes in President Felipe Calderon's 5 1/2-year-long offensive against drug cartels. Most recently, drug battles have escalated as Mexico's two most powerful drug cartels, the Sinaloa and Zetas gangs, wage a war in several regions considered strongholds of one or the other. Late Friday, a group of armed men opened fire on a police station in the border city of Matamoros, which is across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas. Tamaulipas state Interior Secretary Morelos Canseco Gomez said they threw an explosive, possibly a grenade, but no one was injured in the attack. Canseco said he did not know the motive or the gang behind it. The attack came only days after suspected drug cartel gunmen set off a car bomb near a police barracks in the same state, wounding eight officers.  Adriana Gomez Licon on Twitter:

Mexican couts better than hear?
That figures, In mexicothey will investigate the judge hear we promote corrupt judges.
We watch tv and think that judges are honest because the judge on tv is usually honest or if he is not honest the show is about how they catch them. In reality they do not catch corrupt judges. We think judges are some sort sort of superior person that is amune to being bought. That is far from the truth. We have the highes court in the country to look at. Look at the Citicens United
Case we Thomas' wife takes in money as a lobbyist but Thomas did not recuse himself from the case but he benefited from the money his wife got as a lobbyist.
Alito also benefited from corporate ones. That did not stop himself from deciding on that case.
Thy do not denie that hey benefited from money or gifts they just denie that it influenced thier vote. No one believes that make the court look like a joke.
Even people's opinion polls think the cou is influenced by outside money.
If the U.S supreme court is bought and paid for what about the lower courts.

The Mexican system is superior to ours, because they suspend judges. When does this happen in either the Federal courts or in NY State? Our State is fooled by a media which ignores judicial corruption in reporting. Our schools spoon feed children about our wonderful courts and all our constitutional rights. You have no rights, because our courts refuse to enforce them and our media refuses to report it.

Ha Ha at least they investigate. Here the FBI refuses to investigate rooked judges.

I hear 250K for a federal judge down on 500 Pearl street in Manhattan.

Clerks who really write and make the decisions even cheaper.

FYI do you need to buy a Federal Judge in NYC?

Just contact Skadden Arps or Holland and Knight. They have a stable of ex-judges wired in.

Bring plenty of cash.
