Proctor appeal denied by U.S. Supreme Court

Posted By on Mon, Jun 28, 2010 at 8:38 AM

It's now officially over. Without comment today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the removal of former Pulaski Circuit Judge Willard Proctor for ethical violations in operation of the Cycle Breakers probation program. He said his removal, upheld by the Arkansas Supreme Court, violated his due process rights and was racially discriminatory.

I'll also use this item to note another interesting U.S. Supreme Court decision today. It upholds a California law school's decision not to give a Christian group the same standing as other student organizations because it discriminated in membership.

  • 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.
