Judge Blackburne update

Following up the Judge Laura Blackburne post of 29 November, the New York State Court of Appeals has unanimously suspended her from the bench pending its review of the State Commission on Judicial Conduct's finding that Judge Laura should be Ex-Judge Laura. Trouble is, the suspension is with full pay.

So here we have another one of Judge Judy Kaye's black-robed bench brats who is being subsidized on the taxpaying public's dime to do NOTHING!

This is standard procedure in New York. A better way to do it would be to suspend the judge WITHOUT PAY, but provide for full restitution of back pay if and when he or she is exonerated. Letting these black-robed bastards continue to drink at the public trough on full salary does little to inspire popular confidence in the judiciary.
