Pennsylvania: “GOP chief justice slams Republican judicial impeachment move”


 The chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said Thursday that he is “very concerned” about an effort to impeach his four colleagues who voted to overturn the state’s congressional district map and impose a new one.

“Threats of impeachment directed against Justices because of their decision in a particular case are an attack upon an independent judiciary, which is an essential component of our constitutional plan of government,” Chief Justice Thomas Saylor said in a statement.

Justice Saylor, elected to the court as a Republican, dissented from the majority in the case.
