One Down, One to go! Justice Joel Penoyar retires after a little more than one year into his term

It appears that Justice Joel Penoyar has called it quits. In 2012 Penoyar ran unopposed for position one of the Division II Court of Appeals. Now he has called it quits according to the

I’d like to think “public pressure” from those reading Dirty Slick Joel Penoyar had a lot to do with it, but we will never know.

But just in case…. MY THANKS to those who took action to bring about Penoyar’s exit.

Judge Hull…. maybe you should be worried.

AND close behind will be Judge Jennifer Forbes.

  1. I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I do recall doing a Google search on “Penoyar resignation” several weeks ago and not finding the article in question. Regardless of whether it has been backdated as a way to save face or it really did take place last November, I find the result to be extremely, extremely appropriate and hopefully many other folks will now be spared the heartaches of the consequences of having an individual performing the function of a judge who was so severely challenged by the task.

  3. There’s nothing about him also resigning/retiring from the WSBA as far as I can see. Kinda seems sort of like a plea bargain because of that – he is on record ruling that folks with even unrelated ethics problems should have their professional licenses forcibly revoked for essentially the sake of the reputation of the profession itself (a case a while back involving a civil engineer who evidently was a sex offender, don’t recall the details but it I saw it on the Internet). There are several possible ways to interpret its retention. The negative is that it leaves the door open to possible future meddling, hopefully that’s not the intent.
