Convicted former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin has agreed to be suspended from practicing law in federal court.
Online records show Melvin consented to the temporary suspension order signed Thursday by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Joy Flowers Conti. Melvin has previously been barred from practicing in state courts by an order issued in June by the state Supreme Court.
Melvin is appealing her conviction and sentence of three years' house arrest on charges that she illegally used her former Superior Court staff and the state-paid staff of her sister, former state Senator Jane Orie, to work on Melvin's political campaigns.
Melvin lost a 2003 bid for a state Supreme Court seat, but was elected to that court in 2009, while serving on the lower appellate court.
