In re Fouty

By the Supreme Court's order, Magistrate Carol Fouty was suspended without pay from her position as magistrate following a finding of probable cause that Fouty had engaged or was currently engaged in a serious violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct, and further noting that Fouty previously had received a written admonishment for violating the Code of Judicial Conduct. Fouty requested a hearing on the issue of her suspension without pay, which was granted by the Court. The Court then affirmed the suspension without pay, holding that the Code of Judicial Conduct and existing case law supported Fouty's suspension without pay pending the completion of the underlying judicial disciplinary proceeding.
