Judicial Misconduct

Edith Jones Misconduct Complaint Sent to DC Court

The judicial ethics Complaint against US Court of Appeals Judge Edith Jones was transferred to the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia pursuant to an order of Chief Justice John Roberts. The request was made at the request of the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Judge Jones was briefly considered by President Bush for the United States Supreme Court. Source Times-Picaynne.

Update: The Time-Picaynne website has since noted that the order doesn’t expressly mention Jones by name, but it is widely reported that the complaint was filed against her based on a speech where Judge Jones stated that African-Americans are more likely to commit crime than other subgroups.
