At long last, Justice Eakin is apologizing.
“It is disconcerting and embarrassing to find others searching years of private personal emails looking for and publicizing any insensitive content,” Eakin stated. “I sincerely apologize for such content. Those who know me understand the items chosen for release do not reflect my character or beliefs, nor have they ever been part of my consideration of any case or business of the Court. I do not offer this as an excuse, and will continue to cooperate fully with the independent review by the Court and by the Conduct Board.”
The Court and the Judicial Conduct Board is still investigating this case.
