Arguments set on Proctor case

Posted By on Wed, Dec 2, 2009 at 1:59 PM

The Arkansas Supreme Court has set oral arguments Jan. 14 on the recommendation by the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission that Circuit Judge Willard Proctor of Little Rock be removed from the bench for multiple violations of ethical rules, particularly in his court's operation of a fee-receiving probation program he started and controlled.

Curious. Neither side had requested oral arguments. Judge L.T. Simes, recently suspended from the bench for ethical miscues, had requested oral arguments in the appeal of his disciplinary action but it was denied. Briefing was completed in Proctor's case Oct. 28.

The Supreme Court docket notes that the case will be heard by two special justices, replacing  retiring Justice Annabelle Imber and Justice Elana Wills, whose husband was a former employee of the Judicial Commission. They are Tonya Alexander of Marion and Paul Keith of Hamburg.

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
