Judicial Discipline change

Posted By on Wed, Jan 3, 2007 at 4:47 PM

KUAR reports that James Badami has formally announced his long-planned intentions to retire this summer as head of the agency that investigates and disciplines state judges. KUAR said it's unclear what this holds for the ongoing effort by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission to squelch the free speaking of Appellate Court Judge Wendell Griffen, who filed his latest brief in the case today with the Arkansas Supreme Court. We predict that effort will continue unabated, perhaps with Badami staying to complete that particular case, which he feels strongly about.

Rumors have been circulating for some time about people interested in succeeding Badami, including current commission staffer Jay Wills and Little Rock District Judge David Stewart.

  • Another made-up Republican attack: The Saline County socialists are coming to take your business

    The latest in bogus Republican political attacks comes from Saline County, where Steve Lux, chairman of the county Republican Committee, has sent a letter warning members of the Benton-Bryant Chamber of Commerce that a progressive group working to elect Democrats in the county is allied with a socialist group that wants nothing less than "the elimination of private business." This is, of course, nonsense.
