Undercover investigations of courts, judges, bailiffs, and attorneys are not new. There was Operation Corkscrew, Operation Greylord, Operation Bartab and many others. Now there is Operation Broken Gavel. And coming from this investigation is the indictment of two sitting state court judges in Louisiana. The ABA Reports here and the Shreveport Times here, pertaining to whether these judges will remain on the bench and whether they will hear cases during the pendency of the action against them. One of the judges sits in a drug court. The allegations concern bribery.
