Justice Suspended From Pennsylvania Supreme Court

Another example of political corruption by PA elected officals.  An all too common sight at the court house the past few years.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin isn’t going to be paid her $195,000-a-year salary while awaiting trial on charges she used court staff on political campaigns.

But an opinion issued by the Court of Judicial Discipline late Thursday allows her medical benefits to continue.

The court’s majority opinion says Orie Melvin calls the charges against her weak. But the court thinks they’re strong and the alleged conduct is serious enough to require suspension without pay.

Orie Melvin has been suspended from administrative and judicial duties on the high court since she was charged in May.

She’s awaiting trial with her sister and court assistant, Janine Orie. A third sister, former state Sen. Jane Orie, is serving prison time after a conviction on similar charges.
