Is Justice Antonin Scalia’s “refusal to recuse” himself from In re Cheney an ethical situation that casts a pall on the highest bench in the land? What about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s personal involvement with the NOW Legal Defense Fund? And locally, a judge is alleged to have committed child abuse in public while drunk. Why hasn’t he stepped down? Tonight, live, on WFMZ-TV 69 at 8, Christopher Naughton’s Law Journal examines “Judicial Integrity” with Professor Greg Magarian of Villanova School of Law, Special Assistant District Attorney Anthony T. Verwey and attorney Sam Stretton, joined by additional guests. “Regarding Scalia, at the level of the Supreme Court, there is no one to judge the justices,” noted Verwey. “When they conduct themselves in questionable manners, it could hamper the integrity of the judiciary.” As to Mark Pazuhanich (former DA and current judge in Monroe County), criminally accused of molesting a child, “The fact that he hasn’t stepped down has harmed the judiciary. It hurts the judicial process. My hope is that the Judicial Conduct Board will remove him from office and that the Supreme Court accepts the quo warranto action, before they even have to delve into the messy criminal matters.” Law Journal broadcasts for one hour every Monday at 8 p.m. on WFMZ-TV 69. Each program is later Web cast on www.LawJournalTV.com. Next week: “Is the Jury System in Peril?”
