Mr. Fuller has done the honorable thing, even if there was an inducement


See Jada F. Smith, Federal Judge to Quit Post; He Faced Abuse Charge, New York Times (May 29, 2015).*

Even if his resignation was induced under 28 U.S. Code § 354(a)(2)(B)(ii) (“If the conduct of a judge appointed to hold office during good behavior is the subject of the complaint, action by the judicial council under paragraph (1)(C) may include—requesting that the judge voluntarily retire, with the provision that the length of service requirements under section 371 of this title shall not apply”), Mr. Fuller has done the honorable thing. For that, I applaud him.
