Formal charges of ethics violations have been brought against six out of the seven justices of the Arkansas Supreme Court over their handling of a case involving a Circuit Court judge who participated in a protest, The Arkansas Times reports. A three-member investigative panel found that the Supreme Court had improperly ruled on an extraordinary complaint against Circuit Court Judge Wendell Griffen. The seventh justice, Justice Shawn Womack, was named in a complaint from Griffen but no charges have been filed against him yet, suggesting there is more to come.
