Lawmakers Call For Resignation of U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller
Some federal lawmakers are calling for the resignation of a federal judge from Alabama following his arrest in Georgia. U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller was arrested last month at an Atlanta hotel after a fight with his wife. On September 5, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge. Fuller was sentenced to 24 weeks of domestic violence counseling, and after he completes that program, the battery case will be dismissed. U.S. Representative Terri Sewell of Birmingham says Fuller has violated the public trust and should step down from the bench. Fuller isn't hearing cases right now, but his attorney has said that the judge hopes to return to the bench.
