According to Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy of the Inquirer, one of the members of PA’s Judicial Conduct Board was a recipient of the now infamous emails.
Eugene Dooley, one of the dozen members of the Board, received offensive pornographic emails from former Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery. McCaffery was forced to resign last year, in large part because of the messages he sent.
Dooley sat on the Board when it cleared another Supreme Court Justice who was part of the email chain, Michael Eakin, of any misconduct (Eakin’s activity was revealed by McCaffery).
“Some of Dooley’s emails, obtained by The Inquirer, show he received at least 11 messages with sexually explicit content – including naked women and women engaged in sex acts – from McCaffery and others in 2008 and 2009,” Couloumbis and McCoy write.
It is not yet clear what impact this revelation will have on the Board’s current investigation of Justice Eakin.
