Judge Porteous Impeached!

I suppose being a Bad Judge is a fairly ordinary thing, but being an impeached U.S. District judge puts you in a whole other category (one of eight in US history.)  Word came late this moring that New Orleans U.S. District Judge Thomas Porteous was impeached by unanimous vote of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Here's the link to the story at the website of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  

Bad Lawyer covered this story and you can read past articles at this link.  Porteous was a popular and apparently at one time, good judge whose gambling and alcohol addictions destroyed his career.  Sad.
