Proctor loses at Supreme Court

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2009 at 4:05 PM

It wasn't reported in the Arkansas Supreme Court's weekly report of decisions, but the court yesterday denied a request for a writ of certiorari from Circuit Judge Willard Proctor to stop next month's hearing by the state Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. He's been ordered to show cause why he should not be disciplined for numerous irregularities in operation of the Cycle Breakers probation program he started.

A docket sheet entry shows, however, that Proctor's petition was denied without prejudice. That means he could appeal. Justice Elana Wills did not participate. The case remains under seal, so the nature of his arguments to stop the hearing and those of the discipline panel are not known. The denial presmably means the disciplinary hearing will go forward.
