State's High Court Considers Judicial Discipline Rules



  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is taking up a pair of cases that could change the state's system for disciplining wayward judges.  
 
The Legal Intelligencer says oral argument during the court's session Tuesday in Philadelphia included cases that involve a district judge and a Philadelphia Traffic Court judge who came under scrutiny during the traffic court ticket-fixing scandal.
 
The paper says the cases of District Judge Mark Bruno and Judge Christine Solomon concern the relationship between the Supreme Court's discipline authority and the power of the Court of Judicial Discipline.
 
The justices will decide whether they or the Court of Judicial Discipline can suspend judges on an interim basis, and which order takes effect if they have produced conflicting orders.
