Judge In Wiretap Case Has Conflict Of Interest Issues

Click the title bar for this press release from Judicial Watch. The judge who ruled against the wiretap program last week has a big problem:

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and judicial abuse, announced today that Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, who last week ruled the government’s warrantless wiretapping program unconstitutional, serves as a Secretary and Trustee for a foundation that donated funds to the ACLU of Michigan, a plaintiff in the case (ACLU et. al v. National Security Agency). Judicial Watch discovered the potential conflict of interest after reviewing Judge Diggs Taylor’s financial disclosure statements.


Sounds like a clear case of conflict of interest. Perhaps the judge can be removed from the bench for failing to recuse herself from the case.

I'll be back
