A look at Justice Eakin’s Offensive Emails
Well, we’ve got a State Supreme Court Justice getting disgusting emails from lawyers…again.
William Bender of the Daily News revealed a whole new batch of messages that Justice Michael Eakin received.
The emails are not strictly pornographic but rather a wide array of every offensive remark and ugly stereotype one can imagine.
“Some are off-color but harmless,” Bender wrote. “Others are raunchy, racist, sexist or just downright stupid.”
It’s unclear if the emails came from the Attorney General or the state’s ethics agencies. Additionally, former Chief Justice Ron Castille is upset they weren’t recovered earlier.
After McCaffery’s threats, a review was done and the man in charge, Pittsburgh lawyer Robert Byer, stated that only one of Eakin’s emails contained “offensive sexual content”.
Apparently, though, Castille wanted to know not just about pornographic emails but also those that were “off-color” or “anything that would cause embarrassment if read in the paper.”
“It’s totally bizarre,” Castille said of the oversight. “There are really strange things going on here.”
Castille’s remark is pretty much the perfect description of this situation.
