League of Women Voters Sues Pennsylvania Supreme Court for Corruption
May 20th, 2008

On May 19, the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters filed a federal lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The complaint can be seen here. It alleges that justices of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court entered into secret meetings with legislative leaders, bargaining with those leaders to increase judicial pay. In exchange, the justices were to decide the outcome of certain pending cases in a way that would be pleasing to legislative leaders. Thanks to Howard Bashman’s How Appealing for this news.

Both the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and the Pennsylvania legislature, have been resolutely hostile to minor party and independent candidate ballot access, for decades, but especially in this decade.
