Justice Michael Eakin of Pennsylvania; ethical elf

 

The state of Pennsylvania presented J. Michael Eakin with a law license in 1975after he graduated from Dickinson Law School.

 

Mike has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for the past forty years (1975 to 2015). If it weren’t for a government check, Mike likely would have been employed as a low paid public defender. 

 

The Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board is investigating Justice Eakin for engaging in the following misconduct in regards to his emails.

 

In early October 2015, Attorney General Kathleen Kane provided the Judicial Board  along with other state ethics agencies with more than 1,000 of Justice Eakin’s emails.

 

A year earlier, Ms. Kane revealed a pornographic email scandal that triggered a wave of resignations or firings of state officials. According to Ms. Kane, some of the emails were sent to Justice Eakin’s private Yahoo email account; were racially offensive and contained misogynistic pornography.

 

A former member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and colleague of Eakin, Justice Seamus McCaffery suddenly retired in October 2014 after a newspaper revealed his role in the email exchanges with state prosecutors and agents.

 

As one would suspect, Eakin denies he sent and/or received any racist or pornographic emails. However, an unreliable source indicated that he had his fingers crossed when he made the denial.

 

All that’s left now is to see when Justice Eakin will do as his friend McCaffery did and resign from the bench. Since he’s been digesting public pork for forty years he will likely receive a very large pension.

 

As we speak (ca. October 2015), Eakin continues to sit as an Associate Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
