Tuesday Gavel Grab Briefs

In these other dispatches about fair and impartial courts:

  • William M. O’Neill, a candidate for the Ohio Supreme Court, was found earlier to have violated judicial ethics by misrepresenting himself in campaign advertising; he appeared this week before a new disciplinary arm of the high court that will consider his punishment, according to a Toledo Blade article.
  • Whether to name openly gay judges to the bench in Virginia has become an issue in the state’s U.S. Senate contest, the Washington Post reported. Last week, state legislators rejected the nomination of an openly gay prosecutor to become a trial court judge (see Gavel Grab).
  • Two Republican U.S. senators questioned plans for a judicial conference scheduled in Hawaii, and judges on the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals pushed back against the criticism, according to an Atlanta Journal Constitution blog post.
