Delay in Griffen case

Posted By on Fri, Jan 12, 2007 at 3:11 PM

The Arkansas Supreme Court today stayed the probable cause hearing set Jan. 19 for Judge Wendell Griffen before the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. Griffen made arguments before the court yesterday that the hearing should open. The Commission wants it closed. The Commission is considering whether to punish Griffen for a series of public comments on a variety of issues, ranging from racial injustice to the Bush administration's mishandling of the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina. The court made no additional comment in the brief order staying the hearing.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
