Special Report: Thousands of U.S. judges who broke laws, oaths remained on the bench

ReutersMichael Benza, senior instructor at the School of Law, commented on a story about judges who break the law and remain on the bench. The state of Ohio is scrutinizing 2,707 cases handled by a judge who retired in 2018 after being hospitalized for alcoholism. Benza’s criminal law students are helping identify victims, comparing the work to current investigations into police abuse of power. “You see one case and then you look to see if it’s systemic,” he said.
