Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

So, is Judge Arthur Markham simply ignorant of the law? Or is he corrupt? (Or both?)

A long, long overdue complaint of judicial misconduct against Judge Arthur Markham has been in the works for a year. About ten counts against Judge Markham, of the Prescott "Justice" court. (Actually, he's a double dipper. He has a second job as a Prescott Indian Tribe Judge. The White Man strikes again.)

Hopefully the complaint will be filled in the next few weeks.

Of course, the Arizona Commission on Judicial Conduct will only slap his hand. So, to quote a famous report about federal complaints, "The overwhelming record suggest that this is largely a meaningless, pro forma exercise." (1993 Study by Barr & Willging, of the Federal Judicial Center.)

Still, we strive for justice. Our God is not interested in results. (The battle is His.) He's interested in our faithfulness.

Stay tuned.
