Panel again seeks Simes' removal

Posted By on Tue, Sep 28, 2010 at 12:34 PM

A panel of the state Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission has recommended the removal of Phillips County Circuit Judge L.T. Simes from the bench, this time for his actions in trying to get a fired police chief reinstated. He'd been recommended for removal in an earlier case over his practice of law on the bench, but the state Supreme Court modified the punishment for suspension during his current term. He won election to another term in May, however. Should this recommendation stick with the full commission in October and on Supreme Court appeal, he would be removed permanently, election or no election.

Here's the panel's decision.

  • 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.
