Alabama's Senators, Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions, have added their voices to the demands that U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller resign following his arrest in Atlanta last month on charges of domestic violence reports Alabama. com, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Sen. Richard Shelby call for Mark Fuller's resignation.
I agree that Judge Fuller should resign. One of the rules or conditions of accepting a lifetime appointment as a federal judge is that there are certain things that you cannot do, that there are certain lines that cannot be crossed. Judge Fuller has broken those rules, and, as a consequence, he should resign his position. On the other hand, I do not advocate that the U.S. House of Representatives take up impeachment proceedings to remove Judge Fuller from office. On this point I join the view expressed by U.S. Senior District Judge Richard Kopf on his blog, Hercules and the Umpire, Why I don’t favor the impeachment of Judge Fuller.
