U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous of Louisiana, already faced with a recommendation for impeachment and suspended from the bench since the spring, got more bad news Thursday from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The circuit’s Judicial Council ordered all his cases removed for two years, or until Congress acts on the impeachment request, removed Porteous’ staff and issued a public reprimand, along with hundreds of pages of previously secret documents in the investigation.
