Judicial Misconduct Complaint against Alito Called a Stunt
Byline: Charles Hurt, THE WASHINGTON TIMES
As part of a last-ditch effort to block the Supreme Court confirmation of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., a Pennsylvania man accused the nominee of not fully disclosing complaints made against him in his Senate questionnaire.
H. Gerard Heimbecker filed a judicial misconduct complaint earlier this week saying Judge Alito did not disclose his efforts to have the entire Philadelphia-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit - including Judge Alito - recused from hearing his appeals.
"Judge Alito holds himself and fellow judges above the law and the complainant beneath the law," Mr. Heimbecker wrote.
