PETITIONERS HAVE BEEN INVITED
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will be holding hearings on Monday, January 23, 2012 on all state redistricting petitions that the court has received. Citizens groups, petitioners, and individuals are demanding that Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin recuse herself from the cases because of the relationship with her sisters, sitting Pennsylvania State Senator Jane Orie and Justice Joan Orie Melvin’s sister, Janine Orie, both of whom are the subject of upcoming criminal trails related to campaigning for the justice using state resources and personnel. Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin has herself received a target letter from investigators.
Petitions will be filing recusal motions that day.
