|Personal failings should lead federal judge to resign|
A federal judge was forced to step down in Alabama 12 years ago, apparently over rumors about womanizing. Judge H. Dean Buttram Jr., appointed by Democrat Bill Clinton, quietly resigned after only four years on the bench.Breaking News on Mark Fuller's Case
Current U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller is expected to keep his seat, even though he faces criminal charges of battery against his wife in an incident that allegedly started after she accused him of having an affair with a law clerk. Fuller is a Republican appointee, with George W. Bush picking him in 2002.

We have learned that the judges, magistrates, court clerk and chief deputy clerk of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama have all been summoned to Atlanta. These court officials are expected be in Atlanta until Thursday. It is believed that this action is part of an ongoing judicial inquiry into the wife-beating and marital infidelity scandal engulfing federal judge/criminal defendant Mark Fuller.
The spotlight on Fuller's scandal brightened yesterday after I sent a letter to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. The letter exposes the hypocrisy inside the federal judiciary in Alabama and seeks Fuller's removal from the federal bench.
My news sources, who have requested anonymity on this subject due to the sensitive nature of the judicial inquiry, have confirmed (a) the gathering of Montgomery federal court personnel in Atlanta and (b) the accuracy of the information in my letter to Chief Justice Roberts regarding the forced resignation of Judge H. Dean Buttram from the Birmingham federal bench in 2002 for womanizing conduct similar in nature to the misconduct engaged in by Fuller.
Mainstream news organizations have not reported on my letter to Chief Justice Roberts even though they were provided a copy of the letter. Not one such organization in Alabama has engaged in any investigative reporting on the growing Fuller scandal.
Oops Watkins spoke to soon......
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Birmingham attorney Donald Watkins has been on a campaign in the past few weeks to see federal judge Mark Fuller removed from the bench in the wake of the judge's arrest on a domestic violence charge in Georgia earlier this month.Stay tuned...
On Monday, Watkins stepped up his efforts in a letter to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In that letter, Watkins complains about a "flagrant display of hypocrisy in the federal judiciary in Alabama" that Watkins says is due to the judges' political stripes.
