Federal judge arrested, loses docket
According to the NYT:
"A federal judge who was arrested after he was accused on Saturday of assaulting his wife will not be assigned any new cases for now. The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday, also said that cases already on the docket of the judge, Mark E. Fuller, would be moved before other judges. Judge Fuller, of the Federal District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, was charged with battery after the police were called to a luxury hotel in Atlanta." As you might imagine/hope arrests of federal judges are extremely rare.
