PA Justice's Bid for New 10-Year Term Gets Opposition

A campaign by Pennsylvania's chief justice for another 10-year term on the high court is drawing criticism by two men who were active in the successful effort to repeal the 2005 government pay-raise law.
Eric Epstein and Tim Potts released a report Monday that argues Chief Justice Ronald Castille should not be returned to the bench in November.
They claim Castille has mismanaged aspects of the judicial system and mishandled important cases before his court. Castille is seeking another term even though he turns 70 next year, which is the age at which judges must either retire or take senior status. Lawsuits challenging that rule are pending before the Supreme Court.
Castille says he's considering a proposal by Potts for debate-like discussions prior to the election on the court system.
