Former judge Wade McCree Jr. is immune from anyone attempting to seek damages as a consequence of his misconduct, says the court, which has many observers questioning the law.

“There has to be a point where there is no immunity for judges. When we’re told that certain government officials are off limits — it undermines public confidence in government,” said Connecticut civil rights attorney Norm Pattis, according to the Detroit Free Press.

“I don’t think anybody should be above the law, least of all those who administer it,” said Pattis.

This is particularly egregious considering that McCree was a repeat offender who once sent a shirtless picture of himself to a female bailiff.

Pattis understands that the U.S. Supreme Court has held that judges are immune, but believes such rulings are relics which should be overturned.

Joel Sklar, an attorney who is taking McCree to court, says he doesn’t understand a court ruling which called McCree’s conduct “reprehensible” but said McCree couldn’t be held liable for them.

Skylar represents Robert King, who claims, according to the Detroit Free Press, “McCree denied him access to a fair and impartial judge by having an affair with Geniene La’Shay Mott when she sued King over child support. King claims McCree’s decisions — such as placing him on a tether — were influenced by his “sexual desires” and that his rulings unfairly favored his mistress.”

“This conduct is absurd,” Sklar said. “It’s so beyond description. A judge uses his chambers to have sex with a litigant? … If this isn’t too far, what is too far?”

    This is a classic case of. …… Abusive Power. Debenched and disbarred. Of course a new hearing over custody is a must.
