Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Seamus P. McCaffery has retired from the court a week after he was suspended by a majority of his fellow justices, according to a court order.

That order said that, in light of McCaffery’s retirement from the court, the court’s suspension order is vacated as moot. As part of that Oct. 20 suspension order, the court had ordered the Judicial Conduct Board to determine within 30 days whether McCaffery violated any judicial ethics canons by sending porn to a government email address, allegedly getting a traffic ticket issued to his wife fixed, allegedly calling a lower court about judicial assignments and for his wife’s receipt of referral fees while working as a chief judicial assistant in McCaffery’s chambers.
