Confirmed: Huffman resigns JC effective June 30th

Posted on April 5, 2011


You know what that sweet dancing music means. 

“Your rumor is correct. I have resigned from the Judicial Council effective June 30, 2011,” said Huffman in a statement to Courthouse News. “In the meantime I remain the chair of the Executive and Planning Committee.”

Justice Richard Huffman’s departure was necessary to remove a series of political lightning rods borne by the previous administration of Chief Justice George that have politically crippled the new administration.

Huffman’s departure will serve to temporarily dampen criticisms of the insular judicial council virtually controlled by his committee. We will be expecting more resignations from both the council as well as the top leadership of the AOC to demonstrate credible change.
