Assimilation

Is there any support for this judge to not be impeached?

Beyond the obvious, I find yet another example of the perniciousness of considering foreign law in American courts. There’s also the success story of the defendant who is so well assimilated he honestly thought insulting Mohammed was illegal. At what point to we admit we have a problem in that area?

In the interests of fairness, apparently this guy is a municipal magistrate, not an actual judge, and is not a lawyer. (See Volokh on this, about a week ago.)

That doesn’t in any way excuse what he did, but in the bush leagues you have to expect a few idiots.

CNN is still reporting him to be a judge and a “Magisterial District Judge”, although it does say “former police officer” and not “lawyer”.
