The Associated Press reported on December 22, 2007 in a story entitled Panel: Judge's Acts May Be Impeachable reports on a federal judicial panel conclusion that there is evidence to support the impeachment of District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr. As the article states:
There is evidence to support impeachment of a federal judge for misconduct, including lying in bankruptcy court and accepting gifts from lawyers with cases before him, a federal judicial council said Thursday.
The Judicial Council of the 5th U.S. Circuit said District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr. "has engaged in conduct which might constitute one or more grounds for impeachment."
