It’s now officially over. Without comment today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the removal of former Pulaski Circuit Judge Willard Proctor for ethical violations in operation of the Cycle Breakers probation program. He said his removal, upheld by the Arkansas Supreme Court, violated his due process rights and was racially discriminatory.

I’ll also use this item to note another interesting U.S. Supreme Court decision today. It upholds a California law school’s decision not to give a Christian group the same standing as other student organizations because it discriminated in membership.
