Judge Braxton to Hear DA's Claim of Bias, Conflict

Not long ago, I told you that NorCo DA John Morganelli wants Judge John Braxton to recuse his clerk or himself or both from a homicide case against a drug dealer accused of dealing a fatal overdose. The law clerk being used by Judge Braxton happens to be a criminal defense lawyer and in the same county where this case is being heard. This would be contrary to a state supreme court.

Judge Braxton has refused to recuse himself or his clerk, stating he uses her in other counties. Morganelli discovered this claim is untrue.

A hearing has been scheduled on Morganelli's motion for Friday, 10 am, Courtroom 7.

Judge Braxton should examine Morganelli's campaign contributions in relation to his ARD approvals.

Bernie,
Has Allentown pa's infection of peddling of influences been peddled and infected to Northampton Co too? I did happen to come in direct contact with a Northampton Co ADA in my truma and REtrumatization with dealings with REpresentatives of PA's courts on lower levels since about 2001 all as a deversionary tool implimentation!

- - We need to have (and to enforce) rules (and principles) on conflicts of interest, because conflicts of interest have been around since the beginning of time and will be with us forever. It's not "on point" to suggest that any type of conflict of interest has been exported from one place (such as Allentown) to another (such as N.Co.).
